Joaquin Phoenix Transforms Into the 'Joker' In Dark, Intense First Trailer

Sure, at this point, no one's actually seen Joker - just a really well-cut trailer for it. The gritty and edgy atmosphere fills the environment so completely you can nearly see how The Joker would become The Joker in a place such as this, especially after the hardships we see him face.

Joaquin Phoenix is taking on his darkest role yet in 'Joker.' The first trailer debuted on April 3, and the Batman villain is more twisted than ever. First shown at CinemaCon on Tuesday, there's no joking, some teasing, and an overwhelming sense of anticipation in th first glimpse of Todd Phillips' new film. Arthur is an outcast living in a '70s, New York City inspired Gotham, mocked by others, with only his mother for company. We get our first look at Phoenix's interpretation of the character, with some of the comments on the trailer even suggesting that it reminds them of Heath Ledger's legendary performance in 2008's The Dark Knight.

Warner Bros. Pictures will release the film pan India, read a statement.

A press release reads: "Joker centres around the iconic arch nemesis of the caped crusader and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen".

"Put on a happy face".

The origin tale also stars Robert De Niro, Atlanta's Brian Tyree Henry, Zazie Beetz and Brett Cullen and charts the mental deterioration of aspiring stand-up comedian Arthur Fleck as he goes from failing comic to psychopathic serial killer.

Joker's trailer is making people await the film badly which is still a few months away from hitting the theatres.

"I used to think my life was a tragedy, but now I realize it's a comedy", Phoenix's voice-over counters as he's shown in the full Joker costume, carrying a bouquet of flowers while walking menacingly down a hallway.
