A second full-length trailer for Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker is here.
The three-time Oscar-nominated actor is back as Arthur Fleck in a brand new trailer.
The forthcoming feature that delves into the story of the DC Comics villain is set in early ’80s Gotham City and is directed by Todd Phillips, and by the looks of this latest trailer, is going to be a horror movie.
“It really came from this idea: what if you just did a comic-book movie differently?” Phillips said to Los Angeles Times. “We all grew up on these character studies and they’re few and far between nowadays. So it was like, ‘Let’s do a deep dive on one of these guys in a real way.’ No one is going to fly in it. No buildings are going to collapse. It’s just going to be on the ground, so to speak.”
Joker examines the evil that men who consider themselves outsiders can beget.
Joker hits theaters October 4, 2019.
