Online movie ticketing service Fandago reports Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix's Joker is on pace to be its biggest October preseller of all time, outpacing the previous October presales champs Venom and Halloween in Fandango’s advance ticket sales.
Fandango also reports Joker is also outselling Shazam!, Aquaman and Wonder Woman at the same point in the Fandango sales cycle.
“Joker is the most talked-about film of the season,” says Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis. “Joaquin Phoenix delivers a memorably disturbing performance in a comic book origin story unlike anything you’ve ever seen.”
The film opens Thursday evening in North American movie theaters.
