On Wednesday (April 4) released a highly-anticipated first look trailer for the upcoming psychological thriller "Joker", starring Joaquin Phoenix as the iconic DC Comics villain.

The film, due to be released globally in October 2019, is directed by Todd Phillips, best known for "The Hangover" films. In "Joker", Oscar-nominee Phoenix plays Arthur Fleck, a failed stand-up comedian who turns into a psychotic murderer.

According to Warner Bros.

The film, co-written by Phillips, centres around "an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen".

The film also stars Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy, Shea Whigham and Brett Cullen.
