The new trailer for DC’s upcoming Joker movie was released last week and for the most part, people seem to love what was on the screen.
Screen Crush has released a new video that points out 49 Easter eggs and references that they found in the trailer and discussed. While a lot of it is fairly obvious stuff if you’re paying attention when you watch the trailer, there are some things which you might have missed.
One thing the video does is connect it to other films like Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver, The King of Comedy, and Excalibur.
The film was directed by Todd Phillips and it stars Joaquin Phoenix, who gives a crazed outstanding performance.
Joker centers around the iconic arch-nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. The exploration of Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.
The movie also stars Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, and Marc Maron.
Joker will hit theaters on October 4th, 2019.
