Congrats Warner Bros! Even without a China release, the film still made a Billion Bucks. So Joker got the last laugh after all, becoming the only R-rated movie to cross that finish line.
Though take heart Batman fans, ‘The Dark Knight’ and ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ got there first. But at what cost? Joker’s budget is a lot less, which makes its profit margin a lot more. So bottom-line, Warner Bros is doing the happy dance all the way to the bank.
And if Joker manages to score big this award season, which it should, so much the better….
