Warner Bros and The DCEU are currently winning! Not only is the “Joker,” starring Joaquin Phoenix, the highest grossing R-Rated movie of all time, it has also now reached the one billion dollar mark!

This places the film in the same vein of other hit comic book-based films like “Black Panther,” “Captain Marvel,” and the Avenger movies!

It’s no exaggeration to say that Joker is a monster of a hit in terms of box office sales. Having recently topped the UK charts for six consecutive weeks, the accomplishments just keep adding up. In fact, according to Forbes, the film will pass – or, in all likelihood, has passed – the $1 billion worldwide mark today.

Currently, it’s got a domestic total of just over $316 million and – at the time of writing – a worldwide figure of a whopping $998 million. This means that in the next few hours it’ll smash through the one billion dollar barrier, if it hasn’t already, making it the first R-rated movie to reach such a milestone.

It’s also “the third non-Disney/Universal movie to do so in just under a year,” the other two being Aquaman and Spider-Man: Far From Home. We should also mention that those two films made it to $1 billion with the help of China’s box office figures, whereas Joker has managed without it. To that extent, all it needs to do now is pass The Dark Knight and it’ll be the biggest movie to never play in China (there’s an interesting fact for you).

Despite director Todd Phillips saying that Joker was only intended as a one-off, this latest achievement will surely get things rolling for a possible sequel. After all, given the ending of the first film, it would definitely make sense to pursue further ideas, especially when you factor in its business at the box office.

We are really glad “Joker” is so successful. The film was definitely one of the better comic book-based films we have seen. Joaquin’s version of The Joker is nothing short of genius. We would actually love it if his version of the villain would ingratiated into the DCEU.

“Like A Boss” is definitely going to be one of the funniest and dynamic films of 2020. This cast is stellar, and the film comes off as “Girls Trip” meets “Bad Bosses!” Nevertheless, any film showing women in power and doing it big is a cause for celebration!

Who will be the DCEU’s next Superman? At this moment no one is quite sure. One thing for sure is two major actors may be vying for the part as Henry Cavill as expressed he wants to continue on as the Man of Steel, while it is being reported Michael B. Jordan has pitched a Superman movie to Warner Bros!

“The cape is in the closet,” Cavill said in Mens’ Health’s December cover story. “It’s still mine. I’m not going to sit quietly in the dark as all the stuff is going on. I’ve not given up the role. There’s a lot I have to give for Superman yet. A lot of storytelling to do. A lot of real, true depths to the honest of the character I wasn’t to get into. I want to reflect the comic books. That’s important to me. There’s a lot of justice to be done for Superman. The status is: You’ll see.”

Meanwhile, Michael B. Jordan has his own plans to become the Man of Tomorrow

 On a slightly more official note, Variety says Michael B. Jordan actually had a meeting with the studio earlier this year in which he pitched Warner Bros. on “a vision” for Superman.

Warner Bros. was presumably intrigued by whatever he had to say, but Jordan wouldn’t commit to a big superhero project because filming wouldn’t be able to happen for a few years and he has a bunch of things in the works already. Variety says there are no current Superman projects in development at Warner Bros., so we’ll most likely have to wait until Warner Bros. exhausts all of its other ongoing superhero projects before it considers this Michael B. Jordan movie.

Henry Cavill or Michael B. Jordan are great Supermen and honestly they can both coexist in the DCEU. As you may already know from the comics, there exists a multiverse where each universe has its own Superman. On another Earth, Calvin Ellis exists, he is Kryptonian and Superman (and President of The United States) but resembles a Black human. He is presumably from Vlathos Island, a place where traditionally dark-skinned Kryptonians lived. Thus, the Calvin Ellis version of the character could stand side by side with the traditional one. The two have teamed up before as well in the comics!

Six years after “Frozen” kicked up a pop-culture blizzard, the sequel to Elsa, Anna and Olaf’s adventures snowed-in the box office with an estimated $127 million debut domestically and $350.2 million worldwide, according to studio estimates Sunday.

The opening for the Walt Disney Co.’s “Frozen 2” buried several records. It’s the highest-grossing debut ever for any animated film globally. It marks a new high in the U.S. and Canada for an animated movie released outside of the summer season. And it’s the largest opening for any Walt Disney Animation Studios release.

Disney opted for the week ahead of Thanksgiving to open “Frozen 2,” meaning it will get a significant second week bump from kids out of school. The first “Frozen” opened over Thanksgiving, earning $93 million in five days and $67 million for the three-day weekend.

The original, though, quickly grew into a sensation, remaining in the top 10 at the box office for 17 weeks and ultimately grossing $1.27 billion. Propelled in part by the hit song “Let it Go,” “Frozen” begat a flurry of merchandizing, untold numbers of Elsa dresses and a Broadway musical. It won two Academy Awards, for best animated feature and original song.

Matching that total gross won’t be easy sledding, but “Frozen 2” has a head start. Cathleen Taff, distribution chief for Disney, granted there’s a “high bar” set by “Frozen,” but she’s confident of the film’s enormous appeal.

We have no doubt “Frozen 2” will be an even bigger hit than the original movie. This weekend will definitely prove that as families will pour into theaters with their kids to see the Elsa, Anna, and their friends venture into “The Great Unknown” beyond Arendelle. Be sure you catch “Frozen 2” in a theater near you this weekend and check out our review by clicking here!
