Starring Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz and Robert De Niro, Joker is an exploration of Aurthur Fleck, a man disregarded by society and eventually driven insane until he become’s Gotham City’s best known psychopathic murderer.

Directed by Todd Phillips (The Hangover (2009), other key cast includes Bryan Callen, Shea Whigham, Frances Conroy…

I’m going to start by addressing the rather humongous and certainly beautiful elephant in the room. ‘Heath Ledger, Heath Ledger, Heath Ledger, Heath Ledger. The Dark Knight , The Dark Knight , The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight.’ OK. I’m done.

To clarify, my intention is certainly not to take anything away from Phoenix who I also appreciate, especially since his great work in Gladiator (2000). However, I just had to do the above because Ledger’s performance was pure magic and permanently fixed in my memory as one of the best performances I’ve ever seen.

I’m still definitely looking forward to watching this deep-dive into Joker’s journey, from failed comic to psychopathic murderer. Additionally, I actually can’t wait to compare both Phoenix and Ledger’s performances – just to see which I prefer.

Glenn Fleshler, Brett Cullen, Marc Maron, Douglas Hodge and Josh Pais also star.

Joker Release Dates: October 4th, 2019 (US & UK)…

HIGH FLYING BIRD (2019): New Trailer From Zazie Beetz, Zachary Quinto, André Holland, Melvin Gregg…

Zazie Beetz, Zachary Quinto, André Holland and Melvin Gregg are the stars of director Steven Soderbergh’s new drama, High Flying Bird.

At the centre of the story is a sports agent who pitches a rookie basketball client an intriguing and controversial business opportunity during an NBA lockout / shutdown

Right away, I like the rhythm and flow of this trailer edit. It’s giving me HBO’s Ballers vibes and a little hint of Entourage – another HBO show. I guess that’s why I first thought this was a TV series.

I want to see precisely what the intriguing yet controversial opportunity is and how far it gets. I also just really like the title, ‘High Flying Bird’.

Lastly, in reference to 0:19 in this trailer, when was it agreed that Basketball was the ‘sexiest sport?’ Surely football / soccer is the one.

Kyle MacLachlan, Michelle Ang, Bill Duke, Glenn Fleshler, Sonja Sohn, Caleb McLaughlin also star.

High Flying Bird Release Dates: February 8th, 2019 (US)…
