Joker continues to be a massive hit in the box office as recent reports have indicated that the controversial movie has already surpassed the $200 million mark in its second weekend.

The DC Film raked in another $8.4 million from domestic theaters on Monday which pushes the 11-day domestic total past $200 million to a precise $201.99 million. Just over the weekend, Joker already set a new record in the box office, earning $55 million and creaming movie projections that expected it to only reach $40 million.

Joker also cracked the opening weekend record with $96 million, previously the record was set by Venom that debuted at $80 million. Joker also broke Venom's October Friday box office record by raking in $39.8 million in its first day in theaters. If you haven't seen Joker yet, I cannot recommend the movie enough. If you are planning on going to see the film, I recommend that you go into it by taking out any previous thought that the movie is about comic book characters. The film is instead about the slow decline of a persons mental health, and how much a persons mentality can take before their mindset becomes that of the Joker.

For those that have seen Joker, the director, Todd Phillips said that he would do a sequel if it meant he could work with Joker actor Joaquin Phoenix again, more on that here.

Jaks love for technology and more specifically PC gaming began at 10 years old, it was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on a old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of the typical FPS PC gamer, Jak enjoys the likes of a solid MMO, RPG, or a single-player linear story. More importantly, though, he holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
