The folks over at Dolby Cinema have given us a first look at their exclusive poster for Todd Phillips’ Joker. The poster is as raw and simplistic as we’ve come to expect from the marketing materials around the upcoming film that reportedly garnered an eight-minute standing ovation at the Venice Film Festival.
Given the makeup and the paper tucked in around his collar, we believe this particular image is Arthur Fleck preparing for his appearance on TV when he delivers his now infamous quote
When you bring me out, can you introduce me as Joker?

Here’s the official synopsis for ‘Joker.’
Forever alone in a crowd, Arthur Fleck seeks connection. Yet, as he trods the sooted Gotham City streets and rides the graffitied mass transit rails of a hostile town teeming with division and dissatisfaction, Arthur wears two masks. One, he paints on for his day job as a clown. The other he can never remove; it’s the guise he projects in a futile attempt to feel he’s a part of the world around him, and not the misunderstood man whom life is repeatedly beating down. Fatherless, Arthur has a fragile mother, arguably his best friend, who nicknamed him Happy, a moniker that’s fostered in Arthur a smile that hides the heartache beneath. But, when bullied by teens on the streets, taunted by suits on the subway, or simply teased by his fellow clowns at work, this social outlier only becomes even more out of sync with everyone around him.
