First Vid Of Joaquin Phoenix In Joker Makeup!

Joaquin Phoenix as Joker

Over the weekend, fans of the Batman villain got a first look at Joaquin Phoenix in the lead role, but it wasn't until a week later that director Todd Phillips shared a video of the three-time Oscar nominee in full makeup.

In the short video, we see Phoenix's character, Arthur, standing emotionless and still as lights flicker over his face while Laughing by The Guess Who plays. "Joker." Opening on a makeup/wardrobe test slate that describes the look as "full white", the footage first shows Phoenix's Arthur standing in a mustard yellow jacket, his hands in his pockets and his disheveled half-mullet hair-do hanging around his unassuming but clearly tired face. The footage doesn't show much but it does give us a look at Phoenix sporting some eerily familiar Clown makeup. Up until now, we've only seen Joaquin Phoenix in his Arthur Fleck days both in set pictures and in a portrait released by Phillips himself.

Worth noting: this is just a camera test. Phoenix's expressions are likely purely a test of how the makeup acts under different conditions.

Israel rejects responsibility in downing of Russian aircraft
According to the ministry, the Israeli pilots used the IL-20 as a shield, putting it under the attack of the S-200 missile system. The "Il-20. disappeared during the attack of four Israeli F-16 aircraft on Syrian targets in the province of Latakia".

So, what do you make of that look? It could be that this is Joker in an earlier part of his personal transformation, given that this film is an origin story.

Joker is reportedly set in the 1980s, and also stars Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy, Marc Maron and Robert DeNero. It is scheduled to be released on October 4, 2019.
