The Joker, the famous DC comics supervillain and Batman's nemesis, is as dramatic to modern audiences as Hamlet. Is this why the role of the Clown-Prince of the underworld is inviting all Oscar nominees and laureates: Jack Nicholson, Heath Ledger, Jared Leto tried on the Joker mask. It's Joaquin Phoenix's turn.|
If you still think the world doesn't need a Joker solo, the new trailer for Todd Phillips' film will convince you otherwise. Although the film is being produced by Warner Bros., the film stands apart from the troubled DC cinematic universe, so viewers shouldn't have to guess how Joker will be related to Aquaman, Shazam! and other WB movie comics.
The main attraction of the tape is, of course, Joaquin Phoenix. No wonder he is already tipped at least an Oscar nomination for the role of a loser comedian who, due to the indifference of others and his own mental problems, has turned into a notorious maniac. In just a few days "The Joker" will be seen by the guests of the Venice Film Festival, where the film participates in the Main Competition, which is surprising - it was filmed from comics and even by the director of The Hangover in Vegas. However, no wonder, because together with the incredibly talented Phoenix, the story of the great and terrible psychopath will be shown and told by such stars as Robert De Niro, Zazie Bitz, Francis Conroy and Mark Maron.
The Joker will premiere on October 3.
