Joker has proved a huge hit with users of IMDb as the controversial film is now among the highest rated movies of all time from the online database. From that moment, the film is currently sitting in the No. 9 slot, sitting behind the other classic titles like The Shawshank Redemption, Pulp Fiction, and the first two films Godfather. This also marks two distinct points in the top 10 for the clown prince of crime, such as The Dark Knight with Heath Ledger as the Joker is currently ranked No. 4. Although this is a great ranking for a short time after his first it should also be noted that this number could begin to rapidly decrease if more IMDb users give lower ratings during its theatrical run and later on home video.
Directed by Todd Phillips using a script co-written with Scott Silver, Joker presents an alternative origin story for the sworn enemy of Batman. To be clear, independent film has no script link whatsoever to all other films of Warner Bros and DC. He Joaquin Phoenix stars as Arthur Fleck, a down-on-his-luck clown who dreams of great success as a stand-up comedian. His constant failures and clear mental illness will lead him instead of becoming the Joker with face paint brand and colorful costume. Featuring the Phoenix sides in the hit film are Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy, and Brett Cullen.
There had been a lot of controversy surrounding Joker up and after its release in theaters. This disturbing violent content and the film is especially concerned about fears that inspire mass shootings or copycat killers. Although nothing like that happened at that time, the film continues to take heat from those who feel release was irresponsible. However, the majority of professional critics praised the leadership of Phillips and Phoenix’s performance as the dastardly villain DC, with even some of his critics grudgingly admit Joker should be up for Academy Award consideration.
DC and Warner Bros. are no doubt very happy to see the success of Joker. While many of the payments DCEU underperformed both the box office and with critics, things are going much better for solo film clown prince of crime. The movie pulled in nearly $ 100 million in the country over its opening weekend, and these numbers continue to rise. The decision to create a new completely separate history DCEU was wise, because it allowed Phillips creative control needed to really Joker himself. The role is radically different from any previous performance we have seen the classic character and has already become one of the most popular, alongside names like Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger.
