Joker on Track for Major Box Office Milestone

Joker 2019 Stairs

Now the highest grossing R-rated film of all time, Todd Phillips' Joker has made $934 million globally, putting the film on track to reach $1 billion at the box office.

Some are are saying Joker could hit $1 billion in the next few weeks, even without China's market being factored in. The film is unlikely to release in China due to their government's concerns over the film's content. Other recent films to pass the $1 billion mark include Toy Story 4, Aladdin, Captain Marvel and Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Joker is set to release on the HBO Max streaming service sometime in 2020. Plenty of other DC shows and live-action films are also set to be featured in the HBO Max catalog as well. The service will be dropping in May 2020.
