One of the year’s most anticipated films hits theaters in just a little over a month now.
And to celebrate, Warner Bros. decided to treat us to another trailer. The second trailer for ‘Joker‘ gives us a little more of the backstory behind Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker character.
The DC film follows Joaquin Phoenix’s depiction of Arthur as a struggling comedian in 1981 Gotham City, taking care of his mother (Frances Conroy) in a run-down apartment. Depressed and frustrated by his own professional and personal letdowns, he finally breaks before becoming the notorious cartoon villain we’re familiar with today.
The film will have its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival this weekend, and then it’ll have a wide release on October 4, 2019.
Hopefully it doesn’t let us down, ’cause the trailers are making it look really good.
