Many reviewers have praised Joaquin Phoenix's performance and people are already predicting he might get an Academy Award nomination. After all, the late Heath Ledger won an Oscar when he played Joker in The Dark Knight over a decade ago.

Joker will be released in North America on October 4th, 2019. You can read the movie's synopsis posted down below.

""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 fracturedsociety. 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."
