Joker is a 2019 American suspenseful, psychological thriller movie coordinated by Todd Phillips, who co-composed the screenplay with Scott Silver. The film, in view of DC Comics characters, stars Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker. A source story set in 1981, the film pursues Arthur Fleck, a failing stand-up entertainer who after failing to achieve success turns to a life of crime and turmoil in Gotham City.
As of October 21, 2019, Joker has netted $250 million in the United States and Canada, and $491.3 million in other different regions, for an overall aggregate of $741.3 million. It is the eighth-highest-grossing film of 2019 and the fourth-highest-grossing R-rated film of all time.
The “Joker” movie collected a record $93.5 million in its first weekend in U.S. theaters, becoming the biggest domestic October launch ever, according to Box Office Mojo.
The Warner Bros. adaption of the DC Comics classic, starring Joaquin Phoenix and Robert De Niro, also became the fourth-largest domestic opening for an R-rated film. The movie was No. 1 in box offices domestically and internationally, raking in $741.3 million worldwide.
“Joker” tops the previous $80.25 million opening record of the 2018 movie “Venom,” Box Office Mojo reported.
Those record-shattering numbers were achieved despite the controversy surrounding the film.
The actor Joaquin Phoenix delivers what is required for the role and some worry young minds might try to recreate such situations because of the strong impact the movie leaves the viewers with.
Thoughts of violence associated with the movie are seemingly not far from moviegoers’ minds. At a showing of the movie on Friday, a young man who was loudly cheering and applauding on-screen murders sent some people headed for the exits in a crowded theater in Manhattan’s Times Square.
