One of my favorite things about Joaquin Phoenix is that he knows how to truly commit to a role and this one is no different. He is the next Joker and the trailer is just haunting! They give him this humanistic approach and then see him go through his transformation into the Joker.
"Set to the famous Charlie Chaplin song, "Smile," the clip follows the character's journey from a lonely man, who takes care of his aging mother and works as a clown, to one of the comic world's most unforgettable monsters, who only wants to watch the world burn. "My mother always tells me to smile and put on a happy face," Phoenix's Joker says in a voice over at the beginning of the trailer. "She told me I had a purpose: to bring laughter and joy to the world. Is it just me, or is it getting crazier out there?"
You just have to wait until October 4th to see the movie in theaters but as far as I'm concerned, it's gonna be worth the wait!
