Back in August, we shared what amounted to be the Final Trailer for the new Warner Brothers Pictures film “Joker” and if you didn’t see that post and our editorial thoughts just click HERE to be up to speed about it. This Warner Brothers Pictures feature opens today in theaters everywhere and stars Joaquin Phoenix as the title character. Let’s remind ourselves of the Theatrical Poster, some premise and the casting. I’ll even toss in an extra poster or two as I found some.

Warner Brothers: “Joker” Final Trailer (Opening 10/4/2019)

When I first discussed the soon to be opening film “Joker” here on PiercingMetal’s Pop Culture focuses (seen HERE), I had pointed out that outside the success of “Wonder Woman”, “Aquaman” and “SHAZAM!” films (all three of which I loved); The DC Extended Universe is a hot mess. Since that time there has been less and less discussion of the connected universe and one has to assume that they have given up on the idea. This isn’t good in my humble opinion because not only did Marvel Studios make it work, they are responsible for the highest grossing film of all time with “Avengers: Endgame” (celebrated HERE). A “Joker” film connected to the others might be more interesting but this is apparently not but that being said the Final Trailer was just recently revealed so let’s take a look.

Outside of the success of “Wonder Woman”, “Aquaman” and the potentially fun appeal of the “SHAZAM!” film (which opens this Friday); The DC Extended Universe is a hot mess. Films like “Man Of Steel” were moderately received and “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” was a ponderous effort that bore little reward while “Justice League”, well, let’s not discuss the absolute bomb that this ended up being. Resultant of this there will be offshoot films that while featuring DC Comics characters will not be connected to a properly shared universe. The first such film is “Joker” and the teaser clip was just released so let’s take a look.

The Premise: In 1981, a failed stand-up comedian, disregarded by his society, turns to a life of crime and chaos in Gotham City.
