Release Date October 4th, 2019
Co-written and directed by Todd Phillips, best known for Old School, The Hangover, and War Dogs, Joker is an original standalone origin story of the iconic villain not seen before on the big screen, it's a gritty character study of Arthur Fleck, a man disregarded by society, and a broader cautionary tale. The bar was set VERY high by Christopher Nolan and the late Heath Ledger, so fingers crossed this movie holds up - check out the official trailers below!!
