Todd Phillips shares JOKER makeup test video



Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur/Joker

Last night Joker director Todd Phillips broke the internet with a short video featuring lead Joaquin Phoenix.

The video, captioned “Camera test (w/sound). Joker.” shows the actor dressed in the role of Arthur. As videos of a creepy looking clown are projected over the top of him he slowly cracks a smile. At the videos end it jumps to show Phoenix in full Joker clown makeup.

Whether this is the final look or a sneaky peek at a specific stage in the characters development it looks very cool. Very creepy and very cool. Check out the video below and we took a few screen shots from key moments for you to see below.

Here’s our short gallery of screen shots from the video:

Joker centres around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck (Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.

The film stars Joaquin Phoenix in the title role, also starring are Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, Marc Maron, Josh Pais, and Shea Whigham.

Phillips directs from a screenplay he co-wrote with writer Scott Silver, based on characters from DC. The film is being produced by Phillips and Bradley Cooper under their Joint Effort banner, and Emma Tillinger Koskoff. It is executive produced by Richard Baratta, Joseph Garner and Bruce Berman.

Joker will be released on October 4, 2019. For all our Joker coverage head to our archive!
