I obviously can’t speak on the quality of the movie Joker (yet!). But it’s easy to declare the marketing for the film has been some of the best out of the industry in years. The two impressive trailers (See the teaser here and the final trailer here) conveyed genuine tone and intrigue without giving away too much. And the posters have been both inventive and startling. Following the simplistically perfect IMAX poster released earlier this week (See it here), two more posters were released throughout the week that speak to the duality of the lead character. Arthur Fleck, the hopeful man. And Joker, the emerging anarchist whose only hope is make the world laugh at it’s own madness. Check them out below:
Joker stars Joaquin Phoenix, Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Marc Maron, Bill Camp, Shea Whigham, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, and Brian Tyree Henry. It is directed by Todd Phillips and is set to hit theaters October 4th.
