Director Todd Phillips revealed that he had several fruitful creative differences with actor Joaquin Phoenix over the character of Joker, one of the most iconic and complex villains in the Batman lore.
Meryl Streep is being honoured the same night her financial industry satire The Laundromat is debuting. Also premiering Monday is Phoenix’s Joker, fresh off its Golden Lion win Saturday at the Venice Film Festival.
The Joaquin Phoenix starrer Joker might be based on the DC comics character of the same name but never have we seen before on the big screen a real character study of the man's descent into 'madness' and all things evil. Todd Phillips' Joker is about to change that.
Just like the teaser, the clips from Joker promise a comic-book movie like never before. Starring Joaquin Phoenix, the film is helmed by Todd Phillips and is co-written by Phillips and Scott Silver. It releases on October 4, 2019.
Joaquin Phoenix, who is set to star as Joker in the Todd Philips-directed movie, said he watched videos of people suffering from neurological disorder known as Pathological Laughter and Crying (PLC) as part of his preparation.
Joker follows the journey of Arthur Fleck from a mentally-ill, failed comedian, to his rise as Gotham City's Clown Prince of Crime. The film had its world premiere at the Venice International Film Festival, which was attended by director Todd Phillips, Joaquin Phoenix and Zazie Beetz
