‘Joker’ Tracking Bigger Opening than ‘Aquaman’ and ‘Shazam!’ at the Domestic BO!!!

Although its still a few months out from release, Box Office Pro is reporting that Warner Bros. and DC FilmsJoker standalone movie is tracking a domestic opening weekend of around $77 million this October, with low estimates on the $60 million mark and a high of $90 million.

Should the $77 million estimate prove accurate, that would see the Todd Phillips-directed, Joaquin Phoenix-headlined crime thriller opening higher than the last two entries in the DC in Shazam! ($53.5 million) and Aquaman ($67.8 million), the latter of which went on to become the highest-grossing DC movie of all time with $1.148 billion.

The R-rated Joker has been produced on a budget of just $55 million (a far cry from the vast majority of superhero/comic book blockbusters) and is already generating some very strong buzz ahead of screenings at the Venice Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival. So, at present, all signs seem to suggest that Warner Bros. could have a critical and commercial smash on its hands.
