Warner Bros. announces Joker on Blu-ray and DVD
With comic themed movies being all the rage there are constant announcements of new properties getting the big screen treatment. While Marvel and DC have been building their cinematic universes there are others that are just looking to make a stamp on the genre in a unique way. When it was announced that Hangover and War Dogs director Todd Phillips was taking on a film about the Joker I was instantly interested.
Joker follows Arthur Fleck who longs for any light to shine on him. Trying his hand as a stand-up comic, he finds the joke always seems to be on him. Caught in a cyclical existence between apathy and cruelty and, ultimately, betrayal, Arthur makes one bad decision after another that brings about a chain reaction of escalating events. The film features a great cast including Zazie Beetz, Robert DeNiro, and Joaquin Phoenix taking on the role of the Joker himself.
In addition to the film this release also includes bonus content including featurettes that take you behind bringing this new vision of the DC character to life. Descend into madness when Joker hits digital on December 17th and then on 4K Ultra, Blu-ray and DVD on January 7th from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.
