Joker Has Just Passed The Dark Knight At The Box Office

From what was originally deemed a risky proposition to a billion-dollar success story, Joker‘s rise to the top of the box office has been remarkable. Many were skeptical at the prospect of giving the Clown Prince of Crime a gritty and R-rated origin story, but Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix have proven the doubters wrong in spectacular fashion.

Joker has created controversy, earned wildly enthusiastic reviews and is now being positioned for a huge awards season push, but the most impressive milestone the movie passed was arguably crossing the billion-dollar mark. Not only is it the highest-grossing R-rated pic ever made and the most profitable comic book film in history, but following this weekend Joker has officially earned more money at the box office than The Dark Knight.
