With great concepts come great shows

The Boys is one of those series that had a perfect timing. Arriving just when we were getting off the high of End Game and the dark reality of Joker, it first sounded interesting and entertaining. Some warned me of its dark humor. But accustomed to shows like Black Mirror and Rick and Morty, I thought I was prepared.

Filmmaker Todd Phillips says he is game to further explore the iconic DC villain Joker if an ideal opportunity comes his way.

After standing on top at the box office late last month, Joaquin Phoenix starrer 'Joker' continued its winning streak by crossing USD 900 million in worldwide ticket sales on Saturday.

The Walt Disney Co.’s “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” knocked “Joker” out of the No. 1 spot at the box office, but just barely.

Robert Pattinson says Matt Reeves' 'The Batman' is a different animal from the recent released 'Joker'. It was recently announced 'The Batman' will see Zoe Kravitz play Catwoman and Paul Dano will portray The Riddler, but Joaquin Phoenix's version of the Clown Price of Crime will not feature in the new film.

Joaquin Phoenix is king of the North American box office once again as “Joker” scores an easy victory in its second weekend with $55 million at 4,374 sites.

“Joker” has been both praised and criticized for its dark spin on the classic Batman villain played by Joaquin Phoenix. The film from director and co-writer Todd Phillips was always seen as a bit of a gamble with one of the studios’ most valuable pieces of intellectual property, hence its modest-for-a-comic-book-film $55 million budget.

There may be no such thing as bad publicity, but the spotlight on “Joker” is testing the limits of that old cliche.

Warner Bros. has weighed in on the controversy surrounding 'Joker'. The studio issued a statement in the wake of families of Aurora shooting victims voicing their concerns about the upcoming film.

Hollywood star Joaquin Phoenix walked off an interview after he was asked whether the violence in "Joker" will encourage people to become violent.

"Joker" director Todd Phillips has revealed that Joaquin Phoenix, whose unnerving performance the film is generating early Oscar buzz, would sometimes walkout from the set in the middle of a scene.

Dark drama “Joker” about the origins of the villainous character won the Golden Lion award at the Venice Film Festival on Saturday, while Roman Polanski’s military drama about France’s notorious Dreyfus affair took the runner-up prize.

Todd Phillips says comic book fans may not be pleased with the way his ‘Joker’ has shaped up as the new film is the director's own version of the DC supervillain's story. Phillips, who also co-wrote the screenplay with Scott Silver, said the plot is more about how Joker becomes the man he came to be known as.

Director Todd Philips confirmed that the Joker origin movie, starring Joaquin Phoenix, will be "rated R". The filmmaker, who shared a still of Phoenix applying to make up on Instagram on Sunday, was responding to a fan query about the rating of the film.

Warner Bros on Wednesday announced that its upcoming feature "Joker" will release in India on October 4. The film, featuring Joaquin Phoenix as the iconic DC comics antagonist The Joker, is directed by Todd Phillips.

Producer Peter Safran has revealed that the upcoming "Suicide Squad" movie will be a "total reboot".
