Todd Philips’ Joker origin movie may smash Deadpool II’s record, despite having half of its budget.

Todd Philips’ ‘Joker’ may become the highest grossing ‘R’ rated movie in history within the next few weeks.

The origin story of the eponymous character currently sits in fourth place all time for films with the rating as of Sunday, which designates a movie as intended for adult audiences.

‘Deadpool II’ currently holds the all-time record for a worldwide gross of an ‘R’ movie, taking in $785,025, 593. ‘Joker’ has currently netted $737,529,004 as of Sunday, giving the film starring Joaquin Phoenix a solid-to-probable chance of smashing the record.

Joker was filmed with approximately half the budget of Deadpool II- the former costing $55 million according to some sources, and the latter costing $110 million. Clearly taking a worldwide record from a film with double its budget would represent a coup for Joker’s filmmakers and cast.

Joker seems to have become a national hit in part because of a concentrated effort from liberal mainstream media outlets to cast a shadow over the film. The film was criticized for a supposed connection to the ‘incel’ subculture and apparently painting a character some saw as comparable to a mass shooter in an ambient light.

In a trend seen before with films such as Star Wars: The Force Awakens, opinion on the film has contrasted sharply between ‘professional’ movie reviewers and audiences. Established media film reviewers have reacted quite negatively to Joker, whereas everyday moviegoers have largely reviewed the film positively.

Journalists were banned from attending Joker’s premiere after they had attempted to scrutinize the film before its release. They probably can’t be pleased that the movie appears set to break an all-time cinema record.
