I can't wait to see Todd Phillips’ origin story of the Clown Prince of Crime JOKER. Joaquin Phoenix’ stars as Arthur Fleck, a dejected man stumbling through the streets of Gotham, trying to find respectable work as a clown (and getting beat up) and then spirals into becoming a manic criminal, at one point letting loose with the DC villain’s trademark deranged laugh. Zazie Beetz, Robert De Niro, Marc Maron, and Shea Wigham also star. Watch the trailer below. JOKER is in theaters October 4th.
