Joker is set to become the highest grossing R-rated movie of all time.

In just three weeks, the film starring Joaquin Phoenix as the supervillain has smashed expectations, notching up $US737 million globally.

At $US783 million, the current crown holder is 2016’s Deadpool.

The hype is that Joker will ultimately take close to $US900 million globally… the Hollywood Reporter said it may even approach $US1 billion.
