“Is it just me, or is it getting crazier out there?”
During this year’s CinemaCon in Las Vegas, Nevada, attendees, industry professionals, and exhibitors had the opportunity of viewing the trailer for Joker for the first time. Featuring a troubling Joaquin Phoenix as the legendary villain, we see the traditionally maniacal character take shape but through a bit of a different lens.
Phoenix’s rendition of the Joker seems to be a lot more human which allows us to give the character some sympathy, but it also gives us a deeper-rooted evil that makes your insides tingle.
It looks like the next, big, cinematic masterpiece from the comic book realm.
The cinematography looks absolutely stunning. The tones, makeup, and costuming look absolutely uniform, and bring the iconic villain to life –not to mention Phoenix’s embodiment of the character. Joaquin Phoenix takes the role to heart as we see him descend into the deepest insanity I’ve ever seen from previous Jokers. But then again, this is just the trailer.
