With Warner Bros. Pictures film Joker only a few weeks away we know that the marketing campaign will be in high gear. With it’s recent Golden Lion Award at the Venice Film Festival and it’s abundant positive reviews from those who have seen it, it’s safe to say that it’s on track to do well in theaters.
Today a new piece of marketing has been released. The official IMAX poster for Joker hit the web today featuring Joaquin Phoenix’s Arthur Fleck, basking in the chaos that only a character like the Joker could cause behind him. You can check it out below!
As you can see by the image, the Joker can be seen in a very gleeful strut wearing what is seemingly his main maroon suit in front of a burning car and what seems like a large group of people in the background. What is interesting about this poster is that Joker was not filmed in IMAX. But given all the buzz it’s seems like studio is looking to take advantage and offer the film in a higher quality for those willing to pay a little more at the box office.
Here is the synopsis for Joker:
Director Todd Phillips’ Joker centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone fictional story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck, who is indelibly portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix, is of a man struggling to find his way in Gotham’s fractured society. A clown-for-hire by day, he aspires to be a stand-up comic at night…but finds the joke always seems to be on him. Caught in a cyclical existence between apathy and cruelty, Arthur makes one bad decision that brings about a chain reaction of escalating events in this gritty character study.
