Fall blockbuster Joker racked up another milestone on Saturday when it crossed the $900 million mark in worldwide ticket sales.
Joker, which cost a relatively modest $60 million to produce before marketing, is now assured of generating profits of $500 million or more for Warners and partners Village Roadshow and Bron Studios.
The movie finished Sunday with an estimated global cume of $934 million, including $299.6 million domestically and $634.4 million internationally.
The dark supervillain pic has shattered a slew of records since its early October debut, including passing Deadpool ($783 million) to become the top-grossing R-rated title of all time, not adjusted for inflation.
Box office analysts say Joker now has a shot of approaching $1 billion by the end of its theatrical run.
Warner Bros. announced the $900 million milestone early Sunday when releasing weekend numbers.
In terms of the top-grossing superhero films of all time, Joker has surpassed Spider-Man 3 ($895 million) to rank as No. 13, not adjusted for inflation. It’s also the fourth-highest-grossing DC title of all time behind Aquaman ($1.14 billion), The Dark Knight Rises ($1.08 billion) and The Dark Knight ($1 billion), unadjusted.
Village Roadshow and Bron Studios each have a 25 percent stake in the pic.
Joker is the highest-grossing Warners release ever in 10 markets and highest-grossing DC title in 36. It has been the No. 1 film in Europe for five weeks, and has topped Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice to become the highest-grossing Warners movie and DC film in the Latin American region.
