It took the movie a little more than a month.

Todd Phillips’ Joker set a record, becoming the first R-rated movie (for viewers over 17 years old) to raise a billion dollars at the box office. Representatives of Warner Bros. confirmed this information to Entertainment Weekly.

The highest-grossing “adult” movie Joker was back in late October, ahead of “Deadpool”, “Deadpool 2” and “Matrix: Reboot”. As noted by Variety, with a fairly modest budget ($62.5 million), a movie about the enemy of Batman can be considered one of the most profitable films in history.

For the record, the Joker needed less than a month and a half — it was released on October 4. Before the premiere, the movie was called dangerous, in the United States they even strengthened the security at the cinemas, but as a result, there were no serious incidents.
