Joker Final Trailer

“Joker” Gets Stylistically Perfect Final Trailer

“Send in the clown.”

Though the DC Cinematic Universe hasn’t gotten off to a great start, no one will deny the excitement and anticipation that surrounds Todd Phillips’ forthcoming Joker.

The film, which just got its final trailer, is a standalone origin story that serves as an in-depth character study for the iconic villain. Filled with dark images, a gritty tone, and stylistic music, the trailer is a visual odyssey to look at, raising expectations for the film.

Joaquin Phoenix plays Arthur Fleck, the man who retaliates against a society who has disregarded him for decades. Channeling his inner demons, he constructs an alter-ego, bringing terror to the minds of many as the infamous Joker.

Joker co-stars Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Brian Tyree Henry, and Frances Conroy. It is set to have its world premiere at the Venice International Film Festival and will screen at the 41st Toronto International Film Festival before hitting theaters on October 4.

About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
