Trailer - 'Joker'
Todd Phllips’ upcoming Joker movie has been met with much skepticism and, well, hesitant optimism. With the first teaser now online, we can finally get a sense of the look and feel of this Joker origin story. take a look:
Okay, so there are some lines that are a little too on-the-nose that could be a sign of a not-so-subtle film, but other than that, I actually think this looks like it could potentially be something special. I think the idea of having Arthur Fleck descend into madness throughout the film and finally find his outlet in the form of the Joker is a great idea. This film also looks DARK, and not in a bad way, in an appropriate way for the character. Also, if Joaquin Phoenix can’t pull this off, I don’t think anyone will be able to. From what I can tell, he could easily rank with the best Joker performances and I am LOVING the progressively more maniacal cackles he lets out throughout the trailer. Color me excited for this new (yet still recognizable) take on the Joker, here’s hoping it turns out as well as this trailer did.
Joker hits theaters on October 4th, 2019.
