JOKER centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone fictional story not seen before on the big screen.

Director and Writer Todd Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck, a man struggling to find his way in Gotham’s fractured society. A clown-for-hire by day, he aspires to be a stand-up comic at night…but finds the joke always seems to be on him.

Caught in a cyclical existence between apathy and cruelty, Arthur makes one bad decision that brings about a chain reaction of escalating events in this gritty character study.

It's funny, when I was a little boy and told people I wanted to be a comedian, everyone laughed at me. Well no one is laughing now.
