‘Joker’ is set to smash box office records for a debut of a ‘villain’s’ comic book movie, in spite of an aggressive campaign against the movie by mainstream media outlets.
The film, directed by Todd Philips and starring Joaquin Phoenix, raked in $40 million on its opening night and $94 million within its first three days in theaters.
The film’s impressive debut flies in the face of assertions by mainstream media pundits objecting to its content.
‘Joker’ provides a new take on the infamous character’s origin story. In the film, a struggling, mentally ill comedian living on the margins of a liberal capitalist society is radicalized by his surroundings, transitioning into a violent criminal who seeks vengeance on mainstream society.
Some liberal commentators objected to what they saw as a glorification of a character they saw as comparable to a member of the modern-day ‘incel’ movement, who would be motivated to commit criminal acts after enduring romantic and sexual rejection.
In fact, it’s fair to say ‘Joker’ contains both left and right-wing themes- the titular character is partially forced off the edge when facing mockery and derision at the hands of the mainstream media. Without spoiling a central twist of the film, he also faces persecution at the hands of society’s richest and most powerful individuals.
Sources within the film industry project that ‘Joker’ will net up to $194 million during its worldwide opening, approaching the previous record for a comic book villain’s movie, currently held by ‘Venom.’ It ranges from possible to likely that ‘Joker’ will break the existing record over the length of its theater distribution.
In a development previously seen with social-justice themed movies beloved by elite media critics and disliked by everyday audiences, ‘Joker’ is highly rated by casual moviegoers, while being disliked by ‘professional’ movie critics.

BIZARRE: Hulu Developing Alternate History Show Where Hillary Clinton Wins the Presidency
Dream on, liberals.
The streaming video service Hulu is developing a show featuring an alternative history timeline in which Hillary Clinton became President.
— Variety_TV (@Variety_TV) July 22, 2020
The show will be based on Curtis Sittenfeld’s book “Rodham,” a fiction book about Hillary never meeting Bill and then becoming President on her own merits.
Variety describes the show as “telling the story of an ambitious young woman, developing her extraordinary mind in the latter part of the 20th century, moving from idealism to cynicism and all the way back again.”
Sarah Treem, who co-created the series “The Affair,” and also worked on “In Treatment,” “House of Cards,” and “How to Make It in America,” will be writing and executive producing on the show. Executive producer Warren Littlefield, The Littlefield Company, and Fox 21 Television Studios will also be involved with the project.
Big League Politics has reported on how Hillary and her daughter, Chelsea, are setting their sights on Hollywood to keep their disgraced family’s image in the limelight:
Hillary Clinton is set to launch her own film and TV production company with her daughter Chelsea, according to reporting from Bloomberg.
The Clinton film studio will reportedly feature stories “by and about women.” It’s likely the neoliberal political dynasty would publish content with an abundance of feminist themes, as if Hollywood was failing to produce enough already.
The plan by the Clintons to enter the world of film and television could finally signal their departure from American political life. The family has been a de facto presence in national politics since the early 1990’s, although they’ve been forced into an early retirement of sorts after Hillary’s defeat in the 2016 Presidential election.
The Obama family is engaged in a similar venture, having entered into a film production contract with streaming giant Netflix. It may not be entirely coincidental for the Clintons to follow along a similar path, having a long-standing rivalry with Obama dating back to the 2008 Democratic Primary. Then-Senator Obama defeated Hillary in a contest for the Democratic nomination, running on an anti-war platform he would forget upon arriving in office.
The Clintons and Obamas have every right to add their voices to an already saturated market of culturally progressive and lecture-full film production. However, now that they’ve largely departed the national political scene, they may be surprised to find out that the American people feel no obligation to pay them any attention.
“Rodham” will be more entertainment designed to deranged liberal cat ladies who cannot accept that Donald Trump is their president.
