Joaquin Phoenixs Joker becomes most profitable comic book-based movie in history

Capture of the teaser trailer from Joker

This is just one of many records Joker has passed, including being the top-grossing R-rated movie, breaking the October opening weekend box office record and the second weekend October box office record. Though we're not really counting the film's marketing costs in the budget, the production budget and the film's current box office haul make the movie one of Warner Brother's most profitable projects to date.

Instead, he took the money and made Joker, which has now gone on to become the highest-grossing R-rated film of all time, overtaking Deadpool in the process.

Given the huge success of the film - which follows failed comedian Arthur Fleck as he begins a slow descent into madness, transforming into the Joker - Phoenix admitted he had discussed potential sequels with director Phillips before "Joker" had even been released.

Abraham scores again as Chelsea beat Palace
The win was the sixth in a row in the Premier League for the young Blues, who are comfortably in the Premier League's top four. With 23 points from its first 11 games in the Premier League, the team is also proving it can be competitive and fun to watch.

Long story short, the Joker movie's been doing extremely well, so well in fact that it was announced by Forbes to be the most profitable comic book ever made. That's over 15 times the amount made back on the budget. There were concerns that the movie would encourage violence among individuals with the same temperament and personality as Phoenix's character, Arthur Fleck - so much so that the Federal Bureau of Investigation actually checked Joker posts on social media and the New York Police Department patrolled screenings during the film's premiere.

Put on a happy face, because Joaquin Phoenix's Joker is the most profitable comic book movie of all time. Unlike those films though, Joker will earn its $1 billion gross without China or a 3D version to boost sales.

Once more, this is if you search at Joker's comparatively modest spending plan.
