'Joker' wins Best Film at the Venice Film Festival: https://www.cnn.com/2019/09/07/entertainment/joker-venice-film-festival-trnd/index.html

I wasn't that interested in this before, but seeing it now becomes a high priority.

The Joker is a popular character. Sony made a movie of Venom, a few years ago WB made a Catwoman movie. There's been quite a few comic book movies told from the villain's point of view. Given the Joker's popularity it makes sense that there would be a movie about him at some point. Also, from a creative standpoint, he's basically a blank canvas. He's got no particular backstory, not even a definitive name. So it's a good opportunity for a wrirer/director to put their own stamp on the character and tell an origin story that isn't influenced by previous comics/movies, which is rare for comic book movies.

Well what is the point of making any movie? Because someone wants to make it and someone wants to see it. So the studio can make money from it. Just because you're not interested in something doesn't mean another person isn't. Like you said you don't like Cardi B, but guess what a lot of other people do.

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

Well, seems I am way off base in thinking that Joker wouldn't be financially successful. Predictions are it's going to open well.

..
According to analysts, JOKER is on track to debut to the tune of $76 to $88 million when it takes the stage in theaters on October 4th. That being said, some executives have posited that those numbers are inaccurate on account of the film's potential to divide audiences. Recently, Phillips described his JOKER film as a "slow burn," which as you know is a formula that doesn't always play well with general audiences.

I'd say it will open really well but drop off quite quickly once word gets out that it's more of a drama than a typical superhero movie. A lot of casual movie goers will likely be turned off by the tone of it. Overall though, it will be very successful. The budget being so low means it doesn't have to make a billion dollars to be a success.

You might be surprised. A lot of us had already expected it to be good.
