Trailer for new ‘Joker’ film drops and it is creepy
Warner Bros. and DC Films have released the first trailer for the movie “The Joker.”
The film, which stars Joaquin Phoenix in the starring role, tells an origin story of the iconic Batman villain.
The chilling teaser shows a pre-Joker Arthur Fleck, working as a clown on the street, helping his mother take a bath, possibly attempting to date and generally veering toward madness.
 Director Todd Phillips said there's been a lot written about the film and not much has been all that accurate.
"But that's what happens when you set out to make an origin story about a character who doesn't have an origin," he said of Batman's nemesis.
Portions of the movie were shot in Newark and Jersey City, which led to some major road closures in the area.
Bradley Cooper co-produced the movie, which also stars Robert DeNiro.
“The Joker” is set for an Oct. 4, 2019 release.
The Associated Press wire services contributed to this report.
