Comic book film Joker passed the $1bn (£772m) mark in global ticket sales this weekend, becoming the first R-rated movie to do so.

Joker is currently number seven on this weekend’s US box office chart, with Le Mans film Ford v Ferrari topping the chart with takings of $31m (£24m).

The reboot, which stars Kristen Stewart and UK actresses Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska, took $8.6m (£6.6m) between Friday and Sunday.
