Ever wonder how the most enigmatic villain of our time came to be so hilariously evil? The new movie starring Joaquin Phoenix promises to let us in on the joke.

The Trailer for 'Joker' is a little over two minutes long and reveals an origin story haunted by rejection and bitter contradiction. Joker, maybe more than any other DC villain, is disturbing in his relatability, even more so when you see him walking the streets of Gotham as a regular Joe, and falling hard into all of life's brutal booby traps. It's almost enough to convince you that he's an anti-hero. Is he?

The movie is directed by Todd Phillips, stars Zazie Beetz, Joaquin Phoenix and Robert De Niro. It's set to hit theaters October 4th.
