'Joker' trailer is a twisted and terrifying nightmare we can't escape

Joaquin Phoenix's Joker

The Joker is one of those characters that we've seen countless times before, and to be honest in the beginning when it was announced that Joaquin Phoenix was playing him, fans said why?

We know Joker will be an origin story showing Fleck's failed attempts to become a comedian, ultimately leading to his transformation into the Clown Prince of Crime.

It took a while, but I've come around to being excited for Todd Phillips' Joker movie. The Todd Phillips directed flick has been keeping its direction largely under wraps until today, courtesy of the first official trailer.

The first teaser trailer of Joaquin Phoenix starrer Joker is out. Most people who are mentally ill are only a risk to themselves, and it would be nice to see people in films who have anxiety, bipolar disorder, and other conditions be seen as just people instead of nearly always being connected with a generic "crazy" bad guy. Arthur is an outcast living in a '70s, New York City inspired Gotham, mocked by others, with only his mother for company.

"Smile" plays as we see Arthur getting kicked around by the world - he's beat up by thugs, hit by a auto, mocked loudly and frequently.

These lines echo the tagline featured on the film's teaser poster, which reads: "Put on a happy face".

Joker is scheduled to be released by Warner Bros. The supporting cast includes Robert De Niro as a talk show host who factors into Arthur's psychological downfall and "Atlanta" and "Deadpool" favorite Zazie Beetz as a single mother who is Arthur's love interest.

Joker is set for release in United Kingdom cinemas on October 4, 2019. Expectations will be high nonetheless, thanks to legendary performances from the likes of Jack Nicholson in 1989's Batman and Heath Ledger in 2008's The Dark Knight.
