JOKER — Final Trailer Direc­tor Todd Phillips “Jok­er” cen­ters around the icon­ic arch neme­sis and is an orig­i­nal, stand­alone fic­tion­al sto­ry not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ explo­ration of Arthur Fleck, who is indeli­bly por­trayed by Joaquin Phoenix, is of a man strug­gling to find his way in Gotham’s frac­tured society.
