Creepy New Joker Movie Clips Tease This Week's New Trailer

Clown town.


The upcoming standalone Joker movie is set to be a little different from previous DC movies. It's an R-rated movie that has been compared to the gritty crime films of Martin Scorsese, and it's set to hit theaters this October. The second trailer is expected this week, and ahead of that we have a series of short clips from the movie.

The clips were posted on Instagram by the official Joker account. They are all extremely short, but provide some footage that wasn't in April's first trailer, including a weird one where Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix) climbs into a fridge. There are also some almost subliminal flashes of text that appear on each clip. Reddit user leos-rdt has pieced these together, and they reveal when we will see the new trailer--Wednesday, August 28. Check the first clip out below and the others over at the Joker Instagram page.

Joker also also stars Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp, Shea Whigham, and Marc Maron, and it releases on October 4. In a recent interview, director Todd Phillips revealed that the movie's storyline has no connection to any comic books. "We didn't follow anything from the comic books, which people are gonna be mad about," Phillips, said. "We just wrote our own version of where a guy like Joker might come from. That's what was interesting to me. We're not even doing Joker, but the story of becoming Joker. It's about this man."

Joker is the latest of several movies on the way over the next couple of years from DC. It will be followed by Birds of Prey in February 2020, which sees Margot Robbie reprise her Suicide Squad role as Harley Quinn, with Wonder Woman 1984 is set to hit theaters in July next year. Ahead of that, There are also 2021 dates for the standalone Batman movie and James Gunn's Suicide Squad reboot, while Aquaman 2 will be with us in 2022.
