Watch Joaquin Phoenix’s Surprisingly Creepy Transformation in the First Trailer for ‘Joker’

Joker: Warner Bros unveils a creepy new poster featuring Joaquin Phoenix, ahead of trailer debut The Joker Teaser Trailer is Here!

In particular, we've already witnessed Joaquin Phoenix adopt several styles for the film, from his regular, down-to-earth Arthur Fleck look, to his bald-headed clown costume, to his full-on Joker outfit.

It's terrifying, and also totally awesome.

These lines echo the tagline featured on the film's teaser poster, which reads: "Put on a happy face".

There are several shots in the trailer that hint at an uncomfortably close relationship between Arthur and his mother, played in the film by Frances Conroy. It's clear that Phillips and Phoenix's interpretation of the Joker is a far more grounded take, as images of Arkham State Hospital and depictions of mental illness are shown at various points in the trailer.

Joker is set for release in United Kingdom cinemas on October 4, 2019.

Steam users review bomb Borderlands in response to Epic exclusivity deal
However, a recent Tweet sent out by the official Borderlands Twitter account appears to have revealed some new information early. He also pointed out the studio's interest in cross-platform play, which could bode well for the feature being in Borderlands 3 .

Joker springs out of the box October 4 in the USA and United Kingdom, and October 3 in Australia.

What did you think of the first trailer and poster for the upcoming Joker movie? DCEU has announced that they will be focusing on stand-alone films more than building a Marvel-like universe and with Wonder Woman, Aquaman and probably Shazam too, this looks like a great decision.

This has the whiff of Heath Ledger's Oscar-winning turn as the Joker - without this being Batman's franchise. "My mother always tells me to smile and put on a happy face - she told me I had a objective to bring laughter and joy to the world", he says over a montage of him dressed as a clown promoting a store when a group of thugs steal his sign and beat him up. The script will be co-written by Scott Silver and Phillips.

Joaquin Phoenix perfectly captures the essence of one of the comic book world's most iconic baddies, as viewers are treated to the background of the clown killer, with his heartbreaking treatment through life culminating in the transformation.
