Joker is hailed IMDB’s best movie of the year… after $1billion box office success
Joker is IMDB’s number one movie of the year.
The dark DC Comics film rose to the top of the site’s ratings based on both its popularity and the number of page views it earned, according to ScreenRant.
This comes after Joker’s blockbuster run in theaters. The movie set records as the first R-rated film to earn over $1billion at the box office.

Joker had quit the bit of competition.
By rising to the top of the IMDB rankings, the Todd Phillips movie beat out three Marvel movies as well as two Disney remakes.
This comes on the heels of several high profile nominations for the film, which has been lauded for its incisive look at mental illness.
Earlier this month Joker was nominated for some of the Golden Globes’ top awards, earning nods for Best Motion Picture – Drama, Best Director for Todd Phillips, Best Actor – Motion Picture Drama for Joaquin Phoenix and Best Original Score.

Director Todd Phillips is in talks to return to helm the film, while Warner Brothers already has sequel options set for star Phoenix.
Last month, Todd proposed to develop a portfolio of DC characters’ origin stories during a meeting with Warner Brothers Pictures Group chairman Toby Emmerich, according to the report.
Emmerich reportedly balked at the pitch, but Todd did leave with the rights to ‘at least’ one other DC story.
But upon Joker’s box office success, a sequel appears to be a go.
