CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

Deadline reports:

The seriously creepy teaser for Warner Bros’ Joker starring Joaquin Phoenix has landed, and you don’t need to be clown-phobic to get the heebie-jeebies. Set to the strains of Jimmy Durante’s “Smile,” the ultra-dark teaser begins with a voice-over from Phoenix’s Arthur, who says his mother “told me I had a purpose to bring laughter and joy to the world.” Arthur’s street clown is not having such a happy time, though, as he’s attacked by thugs in a Gotham that is “getting crazier out there.”
