Comic book film Joker has passed the $1bn mark in global ticket sales this weekend, becoming the first R-rated movie to do so.

A US R rating requires everyone under the age of 17 watching the film in a cinema to be accompanied by an adult.

Joker is currently number seven on this weekend’s US box office chart, with Le Mans film Ford v Ferrari topping the chart with takings of $31m (£24m).

It has now reached $1bn despite not being released in China, where overseas releases with too much sex or violence can be blocked.

Its nearest R-rated rivals are 2018’s Deadpool 2 ($785m) and its 2016 predecessor Deadpool ($783m), both starring Ryan Reynolds.
