Watch Joaquin Phoenix descend into madness in the final trailer for the upcoming Joker movie. Todd Phillips’ film about DC Comics Clown Prince of Crime does not follow any depiction of the character established in the comics. An original script written by Phillips along with Scott Silver, the film tells the story of Arthur Fleck, a failed comedian who turns to a life of crime and chaos in Gotham City. The film also stars Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Marc Maron, Bill Camp, Shea Whigham, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, and Brian Tyree Henry, among others, in supporting roles.
