We’ve just gotten our final look at Joaquin Phoenix‘s take on the Joker before Todd Phillips’ film premieres at the Venice Film Festival (it opens for wider audiences Stateside on October 4), and by all indications, fans are right to be excited. The new trailer reveals more about the backstory of Arthur Fleck — his home life, his love life, his professional aspirations, his potential introduction to the world — and it’s not difficult to see the dedication Phoenix put into the role. With all the hype surrounding the film — and Phoenix’s performance — will it be enough to bring home another Oscar for an actor playing the Joker? We dig into the new trailer and discuss the possibilities on our new show The Ketchup, where we break down all the latest movie and TV news and what it means to you. Watch the video above and let us know in the comments if you think this could mean an Oscar win for Joaquin Phoenix!
