Holly Shit! The Joker Teaser Looks Amazing!
I was skeptical about the Joker solo movie because of several reasons. First of all, it’s directed by Todd Phillips. The man has been predominantly featured in the comedy genre and this is his first take on a more serious drama/psychological thriller movie. Secondly, because it is a Joker solo movie. The Joker as a character has been mostly relegated to a supporting player, and in the movies that usually feature Bruce Wayne. This is one of the few examples of shining a light solely on the Arthur Fleck character.
Thirdly if you’re paying attention this is not just a period piece movie, but an origin story as well. And a much darker development of the character in that origin story. It will hopefully shows us what made the Joker such deranged and crazy character (well, at least to us who haven’t read the comic books anyway).
I was also skeptical about the inspiration and the approach to making the Joker movie. Apparently the screenwriters were inspired by the movies of Martin Scorsese. Most notably the movies like Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, and The King of Comedy, and solely by that information this will probably be a character study of one man’s decent into madness.
Bradley Cooper is also one of the producers (weird right?) but the first teaser trailer was released and I have to say that all the apprehension that I’ve had so far kinda went away.
The teaser looks good, and although it didn’t give away too much form the storyline I was able to pick up the possible progression of the plot. And knowing Joaquin’s dedication to the prepping and acting, I just known that he’s going to do this character some justice.
So, yeah. The Joker teaser looked good and I can’t hardly wait for the movie to be released.
Joker is scheduled to be released on October 4, 2019.
Check it out.
