The best-reviewed movie of the year is JOKER and the hotly controversial DC Comics villain as portrayed by award-winning talent Joaquin Phoenix will soon be adding to your expanding home video collection on Blu-ray and DVD!
It’s been a banner year for Warner Bros Pictures and DC Entertainment. A virtual one-two punch has been delivered with the cinematic success of two DC properties that were fashioned to completely cater to separate audiences. Lightning struck with the success of the slap-sticky and family-friendly Shazam! based on DC’s mightiest mortal following the box-office boom of Jason Momoa starring in Aquaman. The bankable success of these two properties proved that DC has plenty of muscles to flex with its theatrical properties.
Many were skeptical when film writer and director Todd Phillips announced that he would be bringing one of the greatest villains in the imprint’s catalog back to the big screen in JOKER and starring Academy Award-Winner Joaquin Phoenix as the clown that would be king — king of the box-office that is! The film takes a deeper dive into the psyche of the man, struggling to survive amidst Gotham City’s corruption. The film broke the coveted International Billion mark as well as proving a critical success, and now it’s coming home on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital.
The film presented in high-definition as well as High Dynamic Range and Dolby Atmos® sound mix for a home theatre experience, will be accompanied by several special features including behind-the-scenes looks at the film-making process. The bonus content entitled “Joker: Vision & Fury”, “Becoming Joker”, “Please Welcome…Joker!” and “Joker: A Chronicle of Chaos” all suggest that the focus is to give the audience a fuller picture and understanding of this complicated character. A sequel to Joker has already been suggested to be in the works.
JOKER starring Joaquin Phoenix and Robert De Niro directed by Todd Phillips will be coming to 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD formats on January 7 and retail between $43.99 and $31.98. The film will also be available on Digital on December 17.
