Four days into its worldwide release, Joker has jumped the IMDb rankings and is now in the top 10 movies of all time.
However, the times they are changing’ – Todd Phillips’ latest film about the Clown Prince of Crime is rising the IMDb rankings. Amid the 10, Joker is ranked ninth.
On IMDb, The Dark Knight is sitting comfortably at fourth with a 9.0 out of 10 rating – with a tremendous 2,107,409 votes.
Joker, which sees Joaquin Phoenix take on the role of the disgraceful villain, also has an 8.8 rating – increased from 167,464 votes on the renowned film website.
Here’s the thing: the chances of Joker maintaining its place next to the likes of Pulp Fiction, The Godfather and The Shawshank Redemption are amazingly slim.
It’s happened in the past with the Marvel Cinematic Universe – both Endgame & Avengers: Infinity War joined IMDb’s top 10 in the instant post-release window but soon fell off as the months marched on.
Joker’s IMDb ranking will be majorly front-loaded at the moment, with fans flooding the site to honor the film and push it as much as humanly possible. As the fallout of the movie settles.
Of course, there’s always the possibility (no matter how little) it could outshine in the rankings – hey, in 10 years.
As per Box Office Mojo, Joke film has accumulated $248m worldwide – while any box office figures seem tame following Endgame‘s huge progress, these are some seriously excellent stats.
