The next trailer for the upcoming Joker film will release on Wednesday, August 28, as revealed by a series of new teasers for movie.
Released by director Todd Phillips on Instagram, the six posts are short clips from the upcoming film. However, text momentarily flashes on the screen in each of the teasers. When those flashes are put next to each other, they read, "Trailer 8.28."

Joker has generated a lot of buzz since its first trailer released in April, with many thinking it might end up doing well this Awards season. Early projections for Joker indicate the R-rated movie will earn more than Aquaman and Shazam! on its opening weekend domestically. If projections hold, Joker could easily go on to have the 8th highest-grossing opening domestically for a DC film.
The upcoming Joker revolves around Arthur Fleck, a failed comedian trying to care for his mother. Eventually, the unrelenting cruelty of society compels him to turn to a life of crime and become the titular supervillain. The movie is said to be unlike any other comic book movie and will not adapt any specific stories.
Directed by Todd Phillips, Joker stars Joaquin Phoenix, Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, Marc Maron, Josh Pais and Shea Whigham. The film arrives in theaters Oct. 4.
