It looks like Warner Bros. might not have to worry about the opening box office numbers for their Joker solo movie from director Todd Phillips and starring Joaquin Phoenix. Early box office tracking numbers via BoxOfficePro suggests the comic book origin film might rake in an impressive $60-90 million, placing their bet on a $77 million opening.

Here is a rundown of the last couple of DC opening weekends and if these numbers hold Joker will do significantly better than the last two releases.

  • Shazam! 2019 – $53.5 million
  • Aquaman 2018 – $67.8 million
  • Justice League 2017 – $93.8 million
  • Wonder Woman 2017 – $103.2 million
  • Man of Steel 2013 – $116.6 million
  • Suicide Squad 2016 – $133.6 million
  • Batman v Superman 2016 – $166 million

Joker is set for release on October 4th.

Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Joker” stars Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix in the title role, alongside Oscar winner Robert De Niro, and is directed, produced and co-written by Oscar nominee Todd Phillips.

“Joker” centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck (Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.

The film also stars Zazie Beetz (“Deadpool 2”), Frances Conroy (TV’s “American Horror Story,” Hulu’s “Castle Rock”), Marc Maron (TV’s “Maron,” “GLOW”), Bill Camp (“Red Sparrow,” “Molly’s Game”), Glenn Fleshler (TV’s “Billions,” “Barry”), Shea Whigham (“First Man,” “Kong: Skull Island”), Brett Cullen (“42,” Netflix’s “Narcos”), Douglas Hodge (“Red Sparrow,” TV’s “Penny Dreadful”) and Josh Pais (upcoming “Motherless Brooklyn,” “Going in Style”).
