The new trailer for Joker is out, giving us a glimpse at Joaquin Phoenix's interpretation of Batman's nemesis. Watch the new trailer here!
Directed by Todd Phillips (The Hangover), this DC spin-off is about a failed stand-up comedian named Arthur Fleck (Phoenix) who is driven insane and becomes a psychopathic murderer. The film also stars Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2) and Bryan Tyree Henry (Widows) and is set to come out October 4, 2019.
Social media has been loving the preview, with many already comparing it to Scorsese's Taxi Driver.
That's right! DeNiro has a role as Murray Franklin in the new film and of course played Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver.
Like Bickle, Arthur looks to be a loner walking around the city streets and having a lot of interactions with mirrors. Only he doesn't appear to be asking, "Are you talking to me?"
As seen in the new trailer, Arthur/Joker has a lot to say in a notepad.
What do you think? Do you think Joker looks similar to Taxi Driver? We'll find out whether the comparisons are worthy when Joker premieres at O'Neil Cinemas at The Point in Littleton and O'Neil Cinemas Brickyard Square this October.
