Joker has earned $788.1 million, surpassing Deadpool’s $782 million and its sequel’s $785 million.

Directed by Todd Phillips and starring Joaquin Phoenix in the title role, Joker garnered significant controversy and hype before its Oct. 4 release.

Nevertheless, it racked up $93.5 million at the domestic box office during its opening weekend,setting a record for the biggest October debut ever.

Other R-rated films surpassed by Joker since then include 2003’s The Matrix Reloaded, 2017’s It, and 2003’s The Passion of the Christ.

Ryan Reynolds, the star of the Deadpool movies, congratulated Joker’s feat with a fittingly R-rated tweet.
