Put on a happy face.
Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Joker” stars Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix in the title role, alongside Oscar winner Robert De Niro, and is directed, produced and co-written by Oscar nominee Todd Phillips. “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, a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.
“This is a truly nightmarish vision of late-era capitalism – arguably the best social horror film since Get Out – and Joaquin Phoenix is magnetic in it.” – Time Out
“Nobody who sees this new film will ever need any other version.” – London Evening Standard
“…it’s certainly worth seeing for Phoenix, whose mournful eyes and choking laugh perfectly embody his character’s lifelong query: “Is it just me, or is it getting crazier out there?”” – New York Post
