The next Warner Bros. and DC Comics movie, directed by Todd Phillips, premieres October 4 in theaters.
Joker, which will compete in the 76th edition of the Venice Film Festival held between August 28 and September 7, is one of the most anticipated films of the year. The Warner Bros. and DC Comics film premieres in theaters on October 4 and everyone wants to see the interpretation of Joaquin Phoenix (Gladiator, The Master) as Arthur Fleck, his version of Prince Clown of Crime. Now, in La Repubblica, the three-time Oscar nominee has revealed the strange origin of his character's laugh, already played by others such as Heath Ledger, Jack Nicholson or Jared Leto, among others.

"I started [laughing]," explains Joaquin Phoenix about the construction of his Joker. "I saw videos of people suffering from pathological laughter, a neurological disorder that makes individuals laugh uncontrollably." We still don't know if in the long writing - with the help of Scott Silver (The Fighter, The Decisive Hour) - and directed by Todd Phillips (Weapon Game) Fleck will suffer from this condition or not. Yes, there is a hint in the trailer, when two subway passengers beat the protagonist for his laugh.
There is also a new synopsis of Joker, which emphasizes that the film focuses on the "iconic arch-enemy" in "an original and independent story never seen before on the big screen." "The investigation of [Todd] Phillips of Arthur Fleck (Phoenix), a man ignored by society," he continues, "is not only the study of a stark character but also a broader warning story."
In the cast, you will also find Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Marc Maron, Shea Whigham, Brian Tyree Henry, Frances Conroy, and Brett Cullen, among others. Upstairs you have the official trailer of the tape.
