Director Todd Phillips “JOKER” centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone fictional story not seen before on the big screen.

Caught in a cyclical existence teetering on the precipice of reality and madness, one bad decision brings about a chain reaction of escalating, ultimately deadly, events.
