Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker had been on a record-breaking spree since it has released. The Todd Phillips directorial gives a backstory to one of the most popular comic book villains of all time. It received raving reviews upon its release but still, there was a certain section of critics who just disowned the film because of the gun use shown in the film.
At the worldwide box office, Joker is all set to become the highest-grossing R-rated movie of all time. This stands for the film if we don’t adjust any inflation for the same.
Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool, the movie which changed the scenario for R-rated movies released in 2016 and earned $783 million worldwide. Its predecessor Deadpool 2 bagged $785 million including the sales of its PG-13 version.
Till the last weekend, Phoenix’s Joker is standing at the grand total of $737.5 million. This means, by this week the movie will dethrone Deadpool to own the record.
