Just as Joker was predicted to become the most profitable comic book movie of all time, Joaquin Phoenix was spotted running errands in Beverly Hills on Friday.

The Puerto Rican-born 45-year-old debuted a fresh haircut and silver stubble where his burly beard used to be, and he wore all-black with Converse sneakers and Ray-Ban shades.

The Golden Globe winner's street sighting came as Forbes reported his supervillain origin tale is estimated to amass '$1B worldwide in the next week.'

Specifically in terms of budget versus global gross, the Warner Bros. psychological drama has far outperformed considering its $62.5M budget.

Unlike Aquaman ($1.148B) and Spider-Man: Far from Home ($1.131B), Joker will successfully pass the billion mark without help from audiences in China.

In fact, if Joker passes Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight ($1.005B) starring the late Heath Ledger, then it'll be the biggest-grossing movie ever to not play in China.

Joker may have divided critics - with a 69% rating on Rotten Tomatoes - but it's currently the highest-grossing R-rated film of all time.
