The DC-Based film “Joker”, starring Joaquin Phoenix’s as the iconic archenemy of Batman, premiered on the Venice Film Festival last Saturday. The film was said to have the audience on their feet for — not one, not two, but — eight long minutes of standing ovation. Now THAT’s quite the film to look forward to!
The Todd Phillips-directed movie was also met with shouts of “Bravo!” as the credits rolled and Joaquin Phoenix’s name was flashed on the screen, Deadline reported.
The reaction at Venice only fuels early Oscar buzz, especially for Phoenix, who was present at the Saturday night screening.
The film will hit theaters on October 4. Are you looking forward to it?
