A new Joker trailer has been released by Warner Bros. and suddenly October can't come quick enough. It's another gripping glimpse into Joaquin Phoenix's portrayal of Batman's arch-nemesis.
For those who don't know, Joker is an origins story of how the super-villain came to be. The new trailer highlights the unravelling of failed stand-up comedian Arthur Fleck (Phoenix) and how society turns him into the monster we love to hate.
Check it out.
Judging by the unfortunate sequence of events in Gotham City, it's not hard to see why Fleck turns on society. Ridiculed and abused at every turn is enough to make anyone crack. Even Robert De Niro is on hand to have a pop at him. We're intrigued to see what finally drives him over the edge.
One slight concern we have is that as great as the new Joker trailer is we hope it hasn't revealed too much. There appears to be a lot of potential key moments stuffed into two minutes and 25 seconds - hopefully there'll be a few more.
