'The Joker' is the Highest Grossing Film EVER (For Films Released in October)
it's made over $500 mil
The latest comic book movie spin-off the Joker has been met with controversy in its first ten days since premiering on the Hollywood silver screen.
Critics have bemoaned the stylised violence and lack of sensitivity the movie has towards mental illness. Others have said Joaquin Phoenix’s stunning performance betrays the original DC Comic character.
Either way the movie has impressed at the box office making over $500 million dollars in its first ten days globally.
Sean for Breakfast’s movie expert, Simmo, was strong on his thoughts condemning the critics.
‘Movies don’t cause violence, video games don’t cause violence, books don’t cause violence. The entire controversy about this film has been drummed up by the media… this isn’t even the most violent movie of the year!’
He was also quick to praise the acting and gritty story behind what made the violent and misunderstood Joker.
