Todd Phillips’ JOKER is Set to Bank Half-a-Billion in Profit


Deadline reports that Warner Bros’ Joker is going to churn a profit on its way to becoming the highest-grossing R-rated movie of all time.

How much profit, you ask?

The site says the Joaquin Phoenix pic is poised to make at least $464 million after global theatrical, TV and home entertainment windows, and it could be more if the worldwide box office for the Todd Phillips-directed movie exceeds $900M.

That amount of profit isn’t that far from what Avengers: Infinity War racked up last year in black ink: that pic made a half-billion dollars but was more expensive, with a production cost and global P&A of … a half-billion dollars.
