We’re just a little over a month away from Todd Phillips’ Joker and the film is still one of the great unknowns of 2019. A DC Comics origin story which is apparently serious awards bait, nobody quite knows what to expect from this Joaquin Phoenix starrer.
Warner Bros and co have certainly cut some great trailers for the film – and Phoenix seems to deliver the goods as The Clown Prince of Crome. But will this live up to the hope/hype. I really don’t know if Phllips has the chops for this.
Check out the final trailer:
Director Todd Phillips “Joker” centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone fictional story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck, who is indelibly portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix, is of a man struggling to find his way in Gotham’s fractured society. A clown-for-hire by day, he aspires to be a stand-up comic at night…but finds the joke always seems to be on him. Caught in a cyclical existence between apathy and cruelty, Arthur makes one bad decision that brings about a chain reaction of escalating events in this gritty character study.
Joker hits cinemas 4 October, 2019.
