The first poster shows Joaquin Phoenix’s Arthur Fleck with a hand imprint of make-up on his face, giving us a minimalistic look of his clown make-up. While the first poster teases the eventual transformation of the troubled protagonist, the second poster leans heavily on the Joker card, showing both sides of Joaquin Phoenix’s character: Arthur Fleck and Joker.
Director Todd Phillips also recently confirmed that fans can purchase tickets to Joker on September 23rd, 2 weeks before its cinematic debut. As the days continue to pass, we can expect more promotional material from Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker to hit the internet.

Here is the official synopsis for Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker:
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. 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.
Directed by Todd Phillips from a script he co-wrote with Scott Silver, Joker stars Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, Marc Maron, Josh Pais, and Shea Whigham. The movie is not part of the DC Extended Universe, and seems to play into Warner Bros.’s interests of making creator-driven superhero movies over necessarily building a hyper-connected shared universe… At least for the time being. Even still, director Todd Phillips has said that he’s open to doing a sequel if Joaquin Phoenix – who originally saw the project as a one-and-done deal – is interested in returning.
Joker will be released in theaters on October 4, 2019. Stay tuned for the latest news on the Joaquin Phoenix movie!
