New ‘Joker’ Trailer

I guess it’s time we start taking this movie very seriously. This is Taxi Driver meets well The Joker

Who knew the guy behind Road Trip and The Hangover trilogy would deliver perhaps one of the best movies of 2019. This looks like an early Martin Scorsese film, and it all just looks so glorious. When you think about a comic book movie, you think big and eventful. One of the main attractions of this film is how authentic and real everything feels. There are no green screens, no special effects, they hit the streets of New York and truly made something beautiful.

Joaquin Phoenix really is going for it all. Between him, Pitt and Leo we might have a serious 3 man race for best performance come Oscar season. Just three individuals at the top of their respected game, giving us some memorable performances. Phoenix transformed not just his mind for this role but his body. It’s eerie how skinny he looks in some of these shots and how healthy he looks in others.

Joker appears to perhaps be a revenge flick, with Joker going after a man he idolized in Murray Franklin (Robert DeNiro). This could have serious Dark Knight Returns vibes where the Joker goes on a talk show only to wreck havoc and cause utter chaos. Time well tell, but one thing is certain, we have a new Clown Prince of Crime on our hands, it he is to die for.

Joker hits theatres in October!

New ‘Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker’ Trailer

You know what’s better than one lightsaber – two lightsabers.

So this movie is going to be off the chain. Say what you want about the last outing, which was awesome. The finale to one of the greatest stories ever told is about to go down. It’s been a hectic summer, full of forgettable summer blockbusters, but just when you think all hope is lost, Disney drops the final trailer for their ace up their sleeve.

The trailer doesn’t even show much, again it’s just a little voice over work, nothing really about the plot is mentioned and we are only getting small fragments and quick shots from throughout the movie. That’s all they need to do to market this bad boy. That ending alone is worth the price of admission. Now for the next 4 months the world can speculate whether or not Rey will turn to the dark side. Either way it doesn’t really matter because she looks so badass. Between that and the water battle between her and Kylo make this all worth while.

We really don’t need to see anything else until this drops. Carrie Fisher finishing enough work to be apart of this finale is touching and it’s heart warming that was the case. It just wouldn’t have had that emotional weight behind it if she wants apart of it.

The countdown is officially on until another Disney property destroys the box-office.
