The First Trailer for JOKER Starring Joaquin Phoenix Arrives
The first trailer for DC’s Joker has arrived. The film is directed by Todd Phillips and stars Joaquin Phoenix as the the Joker. The film also stars Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, Marc Maron, Josh Pais, and Shea Whigham.
I have seen a bunch of chatter on social media about Joaquin being the “best Joker”, or that Heath Ledger/Jack Nicholson/etc. is so much better. My response to this is that perhaps we should check out the film to see for ourselves. I personally think that Joker looks amazing and Phoenix’s performance looks fantastic.
Check out the trailer above and let me know your thoughts!
Joker centers around the iconic arch-nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. The exploration of Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.
Joker arrives in theaters October 4!
