The first-look poster has been released for Joker ahead of the film’s teaser trailer launch tomorrow.
Joker stars Joaquin Phoenix in the title role and the film is directed, produced and co-written by Todd Phillips. Take a look at the poster below:
Joker centres around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck (Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.
The film also stars Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2), Frances Conroy (American Horror Story), Marc Maron (GLOW), Bill Camp (Red Sparrow), Glenn Fleshler (Billions), Shea Whigham (First Man), Brett Cullen (42), Douglas Hodge (Red Sparrow) and Josh Pais (Going in Style).
The screenplay was co-written by Phillips with Scott Silver, based on characters from DC. It is produced by Phillips and Bradley Cooper under their Joint Effort banner, and Emma Tillinger Koskoff. It is executive produced by Walter Hamada, Michael E. Uslan, Aaron L. Gilbert, Joseph Garner, Richard Baratta, and Bruce Berman.
Joker is set for release on 4th October 2019.
