After three months of filming, Todd Phillips upcoming Joker origin film has reportedly wrapped principal photography in Brooklyn over the weekend.
In the last week of filming, Joaquin Phoenix was seen on location posing for publicity photos both in full costume and makeup as the titular Clown Prince of Crime and in his pre-villain persona as the unassuming Arthur Fleck. Also seen posing for photos was Zazie Beetz as a single mother befriended by Arthur in the film, seen on location with what appears to be her young daughter. The behind-the-scenes photos of the photo shoot were posted on the Daily Mail.
The film had begun principal photography in Brooklyn this past September after being fast-tracked into production over the summer with additional filming in The Bronx and New Jersey doubling as Gotham City.
Now entering post-production, an official teaser trailer is likely in development to give audiences a better look at the film as it prepares for its October release.
Directed and co-written by Todd Phillips, Joker stars Joaquin Phoenix as the titular character along with Robert De Niro, Marc Maron, Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, and Bill Camp. It is scheduled to be released on October 4, 2019.
