In terms of budget versus global grosses, Joker is more profitable than any “big” comic book movie aside from Deadpool, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and The Mask.

Joker earned another $29.2 million (-47%) in its third weekend of domestic release, bringing its cume up to $247.229 million. It has continued to crush it overseas, earning $77 million overseas (-37%) and bringing its overseas total to $490 million and its global cume to $737.5 million in just under three weeks. That puts it past It ($700 million) among R-rated films and past Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($714 million) among comic book flicks. And, with a total past Gravity ($723 million in 2013), it is the second-biggest September/October release of all time behind Venom ($854 million). It is now behind just The Matrix Reloaded ($742 million), Deadpool ($783 million) and Deadpool 2 ($785 million, counting Once Upon A Deadpool) among R-rated grossers.
