Warner Bros. has officially released the first trailer for its upcoming film Joker and it has instantly gone viral. The highly-anticipated DC comics-inspired story is unlike any other the franchise has set to film.
The film stars Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur Fleck, a failed standup comedian, who descends into madness and turns into the villain Joker. During an interview last year, Phoenix said: “I wouldn’t quite classify this as like any genre. I wouldn’t say it’s a superhero movie… It feels unique. There are these incredible characters that are dealing with real-life struggles.”
Last fall, Joker director Todd Phillips nearly broke the internet when he released a teaser video that featured star Joaquin Phoenix in the Joker costume.
