Just as we thought wed be treated to no more Joker content before its release next month, TV spots are here to save the day.
Three new critics TV spots, which were released after the upcoming film received rave reactions at the Venice Film Festival late last month, have revealed never-before-seen footage of Joaquin Phoenixs character.
In the footage, which has not been previously shown in either theatrical trailer, the audience gets more of an insight into what caused failed comedian Arthur Fleck to transform into the villainous Joker.
Check it out below:
The newly released footage shows taxis swerving into each other and crashing on the streets, before Fleck can be seen celebrating – standing atop of a crashed car and relishing in the destruction. A later clip shows the failed comedian kissing his neighbour, played by Zazie Beetz, while another shows him getting attacked on the subway.
Although much of the footage has been seen in the films trailers, these TV spots allow us to see small glimpses of things we havent seen before – due to them being extended cuts.
Take, for example, the several cuts which show Phoenixs character descending into maniacal laughter – on stage, in the theatre, in someones face, et cetera. This allows viewers to gain more of an insight into the villains rare neurological disorder that makes him break out into uncontrollable laughter, as per comicbook.
Alongside critics reviews such as immaculately crafted, bold, devastating, and utterly beautiful, and film of the year, the footage has done nothing to quench the building anticipation surrounding the film.
Particularly because the only people who have seen the film gave it an eight-minute standing ovation when it premiered at the Venice Film Festival – no small feat, particularly when you attempt to clap for that long just to prove how big of an effort that is. Disclaimer: its painful.
