Joaquin Phoenix recently revealed an emotional new clip from Joker that showcases the actor’s incredible work bringing the Clown Prince of Crime to life.
Joker is days away from release, but Joaquin Phoenix revealed an emotional new clip from the film that shows off his incredible work in creating the villain in a quietly poignant scene. Since Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker is a vastly different character-driven take on the villain, the film lets the actor relish in the transformation. Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker is already receiving critical acclaim while also sparking a conversation about its politics and societal commentary, but in the new clip – it’s a quietly emotional moment.
The scene was first revealed on Jimmy Kimmel, but a Reddit user posted the clip that shows off Joaquin Phoenix’s quiet Joker moment. It sees Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur Fleck in his clown make-up in a grimy bathroom, slowly dancing alone while a haunting score plays over the top. He’s clearly on the mental edge before taking the leap to becoming the Joker as we know him. Take a look at the new clip from Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker below.

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.
Joker will be released in theaters on October 4, 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news on Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker!
