The freak emerges in ‘Joker’


Following the recent first look into Joaquin Phoenix’s The Joker, we know have a deeper look into the characters dark transformation thanks to director Todd Phillips and the freak is ready to come out.

Camera test (w/ sound). Joker.

Phillips again took to his Instagram to highlight these early costume tests which show Phoenix transforming from Arthur into this freakish clown character. The footage is chilling and I can already sense the serial killer vibe that Phillips is going for here with this character.

While these are only early camera tests and are not indicative of the characters final transformation I wouldn’t be surprised if this early make-up later morphs into the characters final Joker look.

While we still have no further plot points on where this narrative will go, the vibe I’m getting is that of a grungy Taxi Driver inspired cinema experience and there definitely won’t be any happy endings here.

Joker will be unleashed on audiences on October 3, 2019 and it’s going to be a mad old time.
