LOOK: ‘Joker’ movie starring Joaquin Phoenix gets first promotional poster
Warner Brothers revealed the first promotional poster for the “Batman” spinoff movie “Joker” last Tuesday at CinemaCon, running until April 4 in Las Vegas, United States.
According to journalists present at the screening, the trailer shows Arthur — the Joker’s identity before he became known as superhero Batman’s arch-rival — in therapy, but when he is attacked in the street, the incident changes him forever.
Inspired by the “Batman: The Killing Joke” comic book by Alan Moore, Warner Bros. described the movie a few months ago in a news release as “an exploration of a man disregarded by society [that] is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.”
A movie poster was also unveiled in the event, featuring Joaquin Phoenix as The Joker and bearing the message: “Put on a Happy Face.”
The movie is slated for Oct. 4, 2019, release in U.S. theaters. CE/JB
