Re: Joker

Joker could be the first R-Rated movie ever to hit $1 billion at the box office...
The movie currently has made about $740 million worldwide in its 3rd week since release with strong legs left in the race.

The highest-grossing R-rated movie ever is currently Deadpool 2 with $785 million worldwide. Joker will eventually beat that record to become the highest grossing R-Rated movie of all time. One factor hurting Joker's chances to lock in the $1 billion mark is there isn't a Chinese release date slated for the film.

The biggest takeaway from this information as it usually is when it comes to box office in Hollywood, Joker is a massive success and more R-Rated comic book movies at this level or greater will be created for us to enjoy.

Re: Joker

Let's get Bryan Cranston to do Luthor.

The best thing about this is that it was made for 55 million. The profit here is huge.

I wholly understand what you're saying but let's not forget that this is Thee Joker. The biggest villain in pop culture. Remember, there was a reason they shoved him into Suicide Squad, advertized the hell out of him and then silently cut 80% of his footage all just to bait and switch people into theaters. Hell, there's more Joker in SS trailers and Purple Lamborghini than the actual film.

I mean this movie is a character study, Oscar season, think piece, art film. When has a movie like that ever made real bank? Let alone in 3 weeks. I would never expect an Oscar bait film to get anywhere near a billion dollars. Yet at 3 weeks, Joker is near 740 million. Say what you will about you will about Deadpool's numbers, it still has a leg up by being a comic book, action comedy, ninja movie. And Joker STILL may catch it.

I don't see a Luthor movie doing anywhere near the success of either movie. You can't sell Luthor to the Hot Topic crowd.

Totally agree. Joker is the main villain of everything. I'm not saying Luthor movie would do as well, I was just piggybacking what Clique was saying about more R-rated comic book stuff incoming.

I also just want a good actor to play Lex Luthor in a good movie. Hasn't happened since Gene Hackman.

This is what hurt both Deadpool movies was no China release. There's profit to be made with rated R movies, they just have to be good and have good marketing.

Joker is a villain through and through. Cannot be redeemed. Cannot be rehabilitated. Doesn't even want that shit. Revels in the chaos he creates. I mean Batman inspires him to greater heights of villainy as well.
