Joker Joker - New Movie Trailer

“Arthur, does it help to have someone to talk to?"

Synopsis: “Joker” centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck (Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.

Release Date: October 4, 2019

Director: Todd Phillips

Writer: Todd Phillips and Scott Silver

Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz


Yesterday it was the first poster, today Warner Bros. gives us the first trailer where we get a horrifying look at Joaquin Phoenix's take on the Clown Prince of Crime in Joker.

The film is directed by The Hangover's Todd Phillips (who also co-writes with Scott Silver) and, in addition to Phoenix, the film stars Zazie Beetz, Robert De Niro, and Marc Maron.

"I used to think that my life was tragedy. But now I realize... it's a comedy"

It is set in 1981 where Phoenix is Arthur Fleck, a struggling stand up comedian whose attempts to become famous lead him to the criminal underworld of Gotham City. We also see De Niro briefly as a talk show host who plays a part in Fleck's unraveling. And boy, does he unravel. We also see Zazie Beetz as Fleck's love interest.

Only a madman would take on the infamous Batman villain after Heath Ledger's game-changing portrayal in The Dark Knight, but if there is anyone with the chops – and guts, it would be Phoenix. But only time will tell if the actor's full interpretation is as deliciously wild and weird as what we get from the trailers.{googleads}
