In an Instagram post, director Todd Phillips has expressed his appreciation for the large amount of fan and critical acclaim that Joker has received since its release. The film finally broke the one billion dollar box office milestone over the weekend.
“Joker centers around an origin of the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. Todd Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix), a man disregarded by society is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.” – Warner Bros.
Joker stars Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz, and Robert De Niro.
