Joaquin Phoenix stars as Arthur Fleck, a man who feels disregarded by society. In the trailer we see Arthur transforming into his Joker alter-ego and it’s a little bit nightmarish!
Watch the trailer below:
Other highlights include Arthur reciting the things his mother had said to him, before getting beaten up in an alleyway. From that point on, his transformation begins and with his green hair and make-up, he starts to look a little more like the Joker we know.
This new take on the Joker is from director Todd Phillips (The Hangover). The film also stars Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy, Marc Maron, Bill Camp, Glenn Fleshler, Shea Whigham, Brett Cullen, Douglas Hodge and Josh Pais.
Joker will be released in UK cinemas on 4th October 2019.
