How did ‘Joker’ Dominate International Box Office with $124 Million?


"Joker" Destroyed the International Box Office Numbers with $124 Million, an article by Dave McNary, Variety Magazine, October 13, 2019. I just saw "Joker" this weekend and now understand what all the fuss is about. The character development was thought out. I felt like I understood the Joker, which made him more relatable. Unlike some of the other DC characters, this film had a great back story. Joaquin Phoenix transformed himself into the "Joker", and I would love to see a sequel. I feel like I’m not alone in wishing for a sequel.


In conclusion, I feel that "Joker" was masterfully executed, from its great screenplay to its amazing performance by Joaquin Phoenix. It was definitely an Oscar-worthy performance. I really hope the DC Universe is taking notes on proper character development. Let us know what you think. The gross sales of Box Office Mojo are listed below.
