Joaquin Phoenix's Joker takes centre stage in the brand new poster for the standalone Joker movie. It comes in advance of the first trailer, said to be dropping today. Check it out below.
The Oscar-nominated star of Gladiator, Walk the Line and The Master (who can also be spotted in this week's Western The Sisters Brothers) plays the Clown Prince of Crime in a gritty origin story. Directed by The Hangover film-maker Todd Phillips, it takes the Joker back to his roots as struggling comedian Arthur Fleck, whose sense of isolation hastens his transformation into Batman's most feared nemesis.
Produced by Martin Scorsese's regular collaborator Emma Tillinger Koskoff, the movie co-stars Scorsese muse Robert De Niro, alongside Marc Maron and Zazie Beetz. Collider reports the movie has already wowed audiences at the Las Vegas CinemaCon, where the trailer made its debut and drew immediate comparisons to Scorsese's moody masterpiece Taxi Driver.
Excited? Let us know @Cineworld and stay tuned for the first trailer. Joker is released on 4th October.
