Teaser Trailer for New Joker Movie
The teaser trailer has been released for the upcoming origin film about The Joker, one of DC’s most iconic villains. This time around the mantle is carried by Joaquin Phoenix (The Master, 2012), who already has some experience playing intense and unstable characters.
In this version, The Joker is a man named Arthur Fleck; a failed stand-up comedian who begins to unravel and turns into the psychotic Gotham killer we all know. The film is directed by Todd Philips, who has so far directed comedies such as The Hangover (2009) and Due Date (2010). It will be interesting to see if he can make the jump to the superhero genre with the same success as other genre director before him. Philips shares screenwriting duties with Scott Silver, who was Oscar nominated for the screenplay for The Fighter (2010).
The stylish and bleak trailer shows a lot of Arthur Fleck’s gradual transformation into The Joker. What the rest of the story will be, remains to be seen. Joker will be in theatres October, 2019.
