RYAN REYNOLDS CURSES OUT JOKER FOR R-RATED BOX OFFICE RECORD
Joker has another reason to dance at the top of the stairs. The film featuring Joaquin Phoenix’s take on the iconic DC villain has now topped $788 million at the global box office, according to The Hollywood Reporter. That means it’s unseated Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool movies from the No. 1 spot. Reynolds, of course, couldn’t stay quiet about it.
Reynolds tweeted out an altered version of the Joker movie poster on Friday. “R-Rated box office congratulatory posts aren’t like the ones you’re used to…” the actor wrote. READ MORE
RYAN REYNOLDS HAD THE MOST RYAN REYNOLDS RESPONSE TO “JOKER” EARNING MORE THAN “DEADPOOL”
Ryan Reynolds may have appeared in family-friendly films like Detective Pikachu and Turbo, but in his heart, he just wants to throw out some f-bombs. It’s what makes his Deadpool movies so much fun, and while they’ve done well at the box office, they’ve been surpassed by a new champion: Joker. So how did Ryan Reynolds congratulate Joker on its success? Pretty much how you might imagine.
On October 25, Reynolds tweeted “R-Rated box office congratulatory posts aren’t like the ones you’re used to…” Included in the tweet was an image of the Joker dancing on the (now iconic) stairs, with the words, “You mother f*cker” above. READ MORE

RYAN REYNOLDS WENT FULL DEADPOOL TO CONGRATULATE ‘JOKER’ ON ITS BOX OFFICE WIN
Joker has now earned more money at the worldwide box office than any other R-rated movie that came before it. Ryan Reynolds is totally chill with that.
Reynolds of course stars in Deadpool, the previous #1 R-rated box office earner (worldwide) before Joker came barging in. So while we have no doubt his “YOU MOTHER F*CKER” poster is dispatched with love and respect, he’s justified in being a little spicy about it, too. READ MORE

‘JOKER’ CONGRATULATED WITH EXPLETIVE BY RYAN REYNOLDS FOR SETTING R-RATED BOX OFFICE RECORD
In Cole Porter’s 1934 song Anything Goes, the composer noted, “In olden days, a glimpse of stocking/Was looked on as something shocking/But now, God knows/Anything goes.”
Mr. Porter, meet Ryan Reynolds.
Mimicking the grand old Hollywood tradition of congratulating a film for beating your box office record, Reynolds added a distinctly off-color but oddly appropriate twist to his felicitations via Twitter, as Joker has become the highest-grossing R-rated film in history, topping the Reynolds-starring Deadpool and its 2018 sequel.
