Warner Bros. has released the final trailer for Joker starring Joaquin Phoenix as the troubled comedian Arthur Fleck. The movie premieres in theaters across the US on Oct. 4, although makes its debut on Aug. 31 at the Venice Film Festival.
Co-written and directed by Todd Phillips, Joker also stars Robert De Niro (Raging Bull), Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2), and Brett Cullen (The Dark Knight Rises).
The “final” trailer follows the official teaser trailer for Joker released back in April.
“A clown-for-hire by day, he aspires to be a stand-up comic at night…but finds the joke always seems to be on him. Caught in a cyclical existence between apathy and cruelty, Arthur makes one bad decision that brings about a chain reaction of escalating events in this gritty character study.”
