Joker — Official Teaser Trailer


added: Wed, Apr 3rd '19

They say people are simply a product of their environment. But what if your environment is the crime-infested streets of a failing metropolis?

Well, meet Gotham's most infamous clown, Arthur Fleck. He's not only a tragic byproduct of the city's endless cycle of violence and corruption, but also a harbinger of chaos and anarchy.

Feast your eyes on the very first official trailer for the much-anticipated DC movie "Joker," a dark, gritty exploration into the origins of Batman's famed arch-nemesis, in which three-time Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix tackles the role of the Clown Prince of Crime.

Set in the early 1980s, decades before the rise of Batman, "Joker" is a unique, standalone story -- not connected to any other DC film or franchise -- about the early years of Arthur Fleck (Phoenix), a struggling stand-up comedian who is driven insane by years of vile harassment and criminal behavior. He's pushed to a point where he finds himself transforming into a psycho clown killer.

"I used to think that my life was a tragedy. But now I realize ... it's a comedy," says Arthur in the above trailer.

In addition to Phoenix, the film also stars Deadpool 2's Zazie Beetz, Oscar-winner Robert De Niro, American Horror Story's Frances Conroy, True Detective's Brett Cullen, and GLOW's Marc Maron.

Todd Phillips, the director of "The Hangover" trilogy and who previously helmed the darkly comic true-crime drama "War Dogs," directs from a script he co-wrote with Oscar-nominated scribe Scott Silver (The Fighter, 8 Mile).

"Joker" is currently scheduled to hit theaters October 4th.

JOKER centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. Oscar-nominee filmmaker Todd Phillips' exploration of Arthur Fleck (Oscar-nominee Joaquin Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.
