(CNN) – “Joker,” the gritty comic book film about the origins of the crazed Batman villain, has become the highest-grossing R-rated film of all time.

The film, which stars Joaquin Phoenix as a troubled man who turns into a killer clown, has made roughly $788 million at the worldwide box office, Warner Bros. confirmed on Friday. That is enough to eclipse the record set by “Deadpool,” which made $783 million globally when it came out in 2016.
