‘Joker’ To Laugh Up $155M+ Opening Around The World – Box Office Preview
After its bold and triumphant premiere at the Venice Film Festival, Golden Lion winner Joker goes out in most overseas markets Wednesday with previews starting stateside at 4 p.m. Thursday. All in, Todd Phillips’ R-rated origins take on Batman’s chief villain is set to post a global debut of $155M, which would be the second-best for October behind last year’s Venom ($207.4M).

Neither headlines about security threats at U.S. theaters, nor the pic’s R rating has slowed tracking forecasts, which still have the movie eyeing a October-record domestic opening of $80M+ at 4,300 locations, upsetting Venom‘s $80.25M. That theater count reps a new high for October, besting Venom‘s 4,250-venue launch last year. Should the Warner Bros-Village Roadshow co-production come in less than $80M, then it’s on the hands of non-fanboys and crossover audiences, who might find this tough pic about a deranged guy hard to swallow.
