Joaquin Phoenix In Joker Makeup Is Crazy Disturbing
Earlier this week we got our first look of Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur from the upcoming film "The Joker." Todd Phillips who directed movies such as "The Hangover," "Road Trip," and "Old School" is set to direct this standalone Joker film. While Phillips is known for his comedic work, fans quickly associated the name Arthur to "Arthur Fleck" the Joker from "The Killing Joke" which means this Joker is not one to laugh at. On the show, Buzz was more focused on how disheveled Joaquin Phoenix looks, and he's not wrong!
Today, Phillips shared another teaser of Phoenix as the Joker, this time in the form of a video set to the song "Laughing" by The Guess Who. The video has me, and plenty of others, shooketh! Check it out below:
The film isn't due out until October of 2019 so it means that Phoenix's look could still change, but so far this is a great way for us to get a feel of the tone of the film. Will you be watching?
"The Joker" is due in theaters October 4, 2019.
