We finally get to see Joaquin Phoenix in Joker makeup

Joaquin Phoenix is gonna make you remember- if you'd even forgot- why clowns are so damn creepy... by revealing the new big screen Joker

A new screen test from Warner Bros. delivers a little closer to the classic clown prince of crime, though it's more "clown" than "criminal". Jared Leto's Joker wasn't as legendary, but he still brought a powerful revision to the role. Growing in frequency, the lights turn into a faint projected image of Arthur in Joker makeup before completely replacing him with our first full look at director Todd Phillip's version of the iconic Batman villain.

So, what do you make of that look?

Phillips (The Hangover trilogy) directs from a screenplay he co-wrote with writer Scott Silver (The Fighter), based on characters from DC. He's presumably Arthur Fleck in this moment, but halfway through the short clip, flashes of the Joker start to appear as Phoenix begins to grin.

Dagga cases will still head to court
Earlier today, South Africa's Constitutional court gave its ruling that effectively ends prohibition. However, the judgment did not spell out the amount that can be used by an adult in private use.

Phillips previously revealed the first look at Phoenix as The Joker without makeup on Instagram as well. The film also stars Zazie Beetz, Robert DeNiro, Marc Maron, Frances Conroy, and Josh Pais. Phillips teamed up with Scott Silver (8 Mile) to write a script described as an "exploration of a man disregarded by society [that] is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale".

Joker won't be hitting theaters until October 2019, but it's already generating a lot of buzz.
