Yes, the area was already blocked off for the filming of a movie, but those who were lucky enough to be inside one of the buildings probably didn’t know that Joaquin Phoenix would show up and start dancing on the stairs.

As of now, Joker has grossed over $1 billion, making it the first R-rated film to pass the billion-dollar mark at the worldwide box office, the seventh-highest-grossing film of 2019, and the 34th-highest-grossing film of all time. That’s not all, at the 77th Golden Globe Awards, the film received four nominations, including Best Motion Picture – Drama.
