In North America, Joker earned $29.2 million this past weekend for a North American total of $247.2 million. Overseas, it brought in $77.9 million in the same timeframe, making the international total $490.3 million.
See where Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker ranks against all Batman movie villains.
Joker has also become the “the fourth-best international showing of all time for a DC title behind 2018’s Aquaman ($811.8 million), 2012’s The Dark Knight Rises ($636.3 million) and 2016’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice ($537 million).”
Some think Joker will end up raking in “close to $900 million globally,” while others believe it has a shot at “approaching $1 billion.”
Rounding out the highest-grossing R-rated films of all time are 2003’s The Matrix Reloaded at $738.6 million, 2017’s It at $697 million, and 2003’s The Passion of the Christ at $622.3 million.
