The picture above is taken from ‘Joker’, portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix. The movie was released a couple of months ago and took everyone by surprise.
It was a low budget film with an estimate budget of $55 millions and managed to gross over $1 BILLION worldwide.
It was dark and twisted with a pretty solid script but the main selling point was noNE other that mentioned actor. He was awarded last night with a Best Actor Golden Globe for his permormance. It’s his second Golden Globe – he won the first one in 2006 for ‘Walk the Line’ and has been nominated four more times – three of these for the best actor.
Here’s his speech:
And here’s the movie’s Final Trailer (almost 80 million views)
The greatest revelation of the year, without doubt, is Joker.
Being a DC and low-budget movie, few expected it to became the phenomenon it did. Top that with an R-Rating and things would’ve seemed logic.
But… surprise, surprise! It’s the first R-Rated movie in the history to cross the $1 Billion mark and also with the lowest budget in the highly exclusive $1B club. China is also a big market, yet Joker was banned over there, making these figures even more impressive.
I’ve seen it at the theaters and enjoyed it. Already in one of the first scenes (the one on the buss) it was revealed to me that Jaquin Phoenix IS a GREAT ACTOR. He has through this movie a great impact.
I think they did the things the way they did for the fans to speculate and to leave all doors open for, what I hope will become, more stories about the great DC villain. The ball is in your half, Warner, WE WANT MORE!!
An original standalone origin story of the iconic villain not seen before on the big screen, it’s a gritty character study of Arthur Fleck, a man disregarded by society, and a broader cautionary tale.
In theaters October 4th.
I like it.
