Warner Bros. Pictures have dropped six new super brief clips from Todd Phillips’ “Joker” film, clips which – when laid out together in a distinct pattern – indicate the film’s full-length trailer will launch this coming Wednesday August 28th. All six clips have been pasted together into one near one-minute clip you can see below.
Warners has been very judicious with its marketing campaign so far, releasing only one trailer back in April to rave reviews along with a handful of photos. The clips include a better look at Robert De Niro’s popular talk show host character Murray Franklin.
Joaquin Phoenix plays Arthur Fleck, a man facing the cruelty and outright scorn of society along with the indifference of a system that allows him to spiral from vulnerability into depravity. A clown-for-hire by day, he strives to be a stand-up comic at night…but finds that the joke always seems to be on him.
Caught in a cyclical existence teetering on the precipice of reality and madness, one bad decision brings about a chain reaction of escalating, ultimately deadly, events. “Joker” opens in cinemas everywhere on October 4th.
