Add JOKER to the Billion Dollar Batman Movie Club


This weekend, director Todd Phillips’ JOKER — which stars Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur Fleck/The Joker (of course, if “The Joker” stuff was real) — will cross the billion-dollar mark at the box office worldwide.  It will now join THE DARK KNIGHT and THE DARK KNIGHT RISES as the 3rd movie in the Batman film franchise to do accomplish that feat.

Furthermore, Warner Bros. now has 4 DC Comics-based movies that are part of the billion-dollar club and other than AQUAMAN, they are all “Batman movies.”


The Batman brand is strong.

Also, congrats to Phillips, Phoenix, Warner Bros. and all involved with JOKER!  And that includes my friend and also a great friend to BOF, Michael Uslan, who served as executive producer on the film.
