Over the past week there has been various pictures and “leaks” of Joaquin Phoenix‘s Joker in the upcoming, unnamed, Joker movie.
Director of the upcoming Joker movie, ToddPhillips, has been using his Instagram to show Phoenix in different costumes ranging from plane old Joaquin Phoenix, to “Sad Clown” Joaquin Phoenix, to “Scary Clown” Joaquin Phoenix!
However, the director has not been the only one promoting this film. On September 23rd a “leaked” footage clip was uploaded to YouTube showing Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker in a Gotham Subway station. While this clip is reported as being leaked by someone on set, the footage is of higher quality and closer proximity to the action than 98 percent of leaked footage normally seen. Many are speculating that it is no coincidence that the video was “leaked” at the same time the director of the movie was posting on his social media about the movie.
Warner Bros. have been adamant that this movie has nothing to do with the current DC Universe movies that have come out in recent years, and this will stand as its own movie away from JaredLeto‘s Joker seen in Suicide Squad.
Currently Suicide Squad is battling very low critic reviews, however that doesn’t seem to be keeping the film down!
According to a report from Variety the film has already been able to bring in $8.1 million across seven international markets, which includes South Korea’s $2.9 Million and France’s $2.7 Million. Looking at these numbers it is already set to pass box office jugernauts Guardians of the Galaxy and Deadpool – and it shows no signs of slowing down.
The film set to release in another 57 international markets and is tracking to bring in more than $100 million in those markets.
Its been reported by several sites that the Suicide Squad movie went back to do some major reshoots before the August release date. According to several rumors it was because they felt the need to add more humor to the film for it being too “dark and gloomy and not fun” like Batman v. Superman was. However, after the release of this trailer consider that rumor FALSE! There is obviously going to be humor and fun in this film, albeit dark humor, but it still looks like a fun time. Check it out!
Now, is this trailer awesome just because it’s set to “Ballroom Blitz”? Probably. But it follows that “fun” tone that the first trailer gave that was set to “Bohemian Rhapsody.” If you have not seen that trailer then treat yourself!
It’s finally out! A second trailer for the upcoming Suicide Squad (released date Aug. 5) trailer debuted last night as a part of the DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League special on The CW.
Suicide Squad is directed by David Ayer (End of Watch) and tells the story of a group of super villains who are released from prison in order to complete a mission that’s nobler than the team is used to. The squad is made up of Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), Katana (Karen Fukuhara), Rick Flagg (Joel Kinnaman), Deadshot (Will Smith) Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney), Slipknot (Adam Beach), Enchantress (Cara Delevingne), and Diablo (Jay Hernandez).
Also, making his cinematic debut, assuming there is not a surprise cameo in the upcoming Batman v. Superman, is The Joker (Jared Leto). And as the clown prince of crime said, “I can’t wait to show you my toys.”
“Worst. Heroes. Ever.” At least that what director, David Ayer, said when he took to his Twitter page today to give us a look at some new Suicide Squad posters as well as to announce the date of a new Trailer!
David Ayer’s post includes a picture of the new poster with skulls representing each member of the Suicide Squad. Along with Ayer’s announcement, actors Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), Adam Beach (Slipknot), and Karen Fukuhara (Katana) all tweeted out with the same written content as Ayer, “Worst. Heroes. Ever. #SuicideSquad trailer drops Tuesday night in the DC Films Special! 9:30/8:30c on The CW!” – only difference is that they had posters with their individual characters on them.
