Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix’s new Joker has already set a new record for the biggest October opening ever. This Warner Bros. film dethroned another comic book movie which is Sony’s Venom, that reached $80.3 million a year ago (Joker comes in at $93.5 million). Globally Joker has added about $140.5 million from 73 markets, for a massive worldwide total of about $234 million. Directed and co-written by Phillips, this new Joker puts a new, R-rated spin on the classic Batman villain and stars Phoenix as Arthur Fleck, who is a mentally ill failed stand-up comedian who later unleashes havoc on Gotham City.
