Warner Brothers have finally released the trailer for “Joker”, starring Joaquin Phoenix and it looks a whole lot better than expected.
The film, which apparently is NOT connected to Jared Leto’s Joker, is being called a “stand-alone movie with no prequel and no sequel”.
The movie also stars Robert De Niro and Deadpool’s Zazie Beetz, and will be released on 4th October 2019.
Here’s the official premise of the movie –
“In 1981, a failed stand-up comedian, disregarded by his society, turns to a life of crime and chaos in Gotham City..”
Not a lot to go on, but still, it’s interesting to see that they are actually giving The Joker a pretty solid backstory – and while rumours reverberate around the internet that it could be based on the infamous “Killing Joke” story-line, the movie gets more and more interesting by the day.
