Any Joker Easter Eggs

If comments on social media and in various places on this particular website are any indication, a healthy number of people have gone back to see Joker a second time. There’s a lot to unpack between his behavior, the larger society the film takes place in and that wild ending, but apparently, there are not any Easter Eggs to be found on a second viewing because director Todd Phillips hates that kinda thing.

The director spoke to Collider during the press tour for the film and revealed he’s not a fan of sliding in obscure references or background details for a second viewing. It’s just not his taste. You can check out a portion of his quote below…

During the same interview, Todd Phillips later went on to say if anyone does find anything, it’s “t...

Joker Box Office Still Dominating

The Joker

The Joker

Last weekend Joker didn’t just blow away it’s competition at the box office. The movie set a number of records for the month of October. After having the top opening weekend in October ever, defeating Sony’s Venom, Joker has continued to destroy Marvel’s symbiotic Spider-Man spinoff. Even during the week, when many fewer people go to the movie, Joker is setting records. Joker has now had the highest grossing Tuesday in October ever, a record it has also taken from Venom.

And things don’t appear to be slowing down any. Joker is expected to bring in another $42 million or more this coming weekend, which will put it well ahead of the weekend’s two new releases, the animated Addams Family and Will Smith’s Gemini Man, directed by Ang Lee.

For the record, Venom b...

That Thomas Wayne Twist

 That Thomas Wayne Twist

The following story contains a MAJOR SPOILER for Joker. If you haven’t seen the film, go check it out, and then come back to read the details.

When we first meet the character of Thomas Wayne in Joker, it feels like’s meant to only help reinforce the comic book world of Gotham City. The man is rich and running for mayor, about as far removed from the world that Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix) lives in as possible.

While there is a connection between the two, Arthur’s mother once worked for the Wayne family, the movie takes a pretty significant change in direction when Arthur learns that he might actually be the illegitimate son of Thomas Wayne...

Actor Josh Brolin Gives Joker

Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix set out to make something different with Joker. They wanted to make a comic book movie grounded in reality. Phoenix warned fans early on that his take on the Clown Prince of Crime was going to be more of a character study than anything else. So far, the reviews have been mixed. Some are all on board for the new take on the iconic villain, while others aren’t into it at all. Thanos actor Josh Brolin feels that Joker is an excellent movie with a lot to say.

Avengers: Endgame and Infinity War fully introduced Josh Brolin’s Thanos to the world. The first installment was basically his movie, as the Mad Titan sought to bring balance to the universe. Audiences were given the chance to side with the villain and see where he’s truly coming from...

1917 Trailer #2 Brings World War I

Universal Pictures has released a new trailer for the upcoming World War I epic <a href=”https://movieweb.com/movie/1917/” class=”movie”>1917. This is the latest from Sam Mendes (Skyfall, American Beauty) and the filmmaker has truly outdone himself this time. Not only is he taking on some harrowing subject matter with a stacked cast, but he’s decided to make it appear as though all of these events will unfold in a single, continuous shot that lasts for two hours. Safe to say, this could prove to be unlike anything we’ve ever seen.

The trailer debuted during the movie’s panel at New York Comic-Con and was promptly released online after. The footage, though not presented as a single shot, is excruciatingly tense and undeniably grand in scope...

Which R-Rated Movie Dominated

Which R-Rated Movie Dominated

Which R-Rated Movie Dominated

Last week Todd Philips, the director of Joker, made a comparison between his film and the popular, and violent, John Wick franchise. While the two movies certainly have a lot of differences between them, both John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum and Joker are two R-rated movies from 2019 that had, and have, a lot of anticipation behind them, but which was the more in-demand film? Based on ticket pre-sales it looks like John Wick is edging out Joker, but only just.

According to Atom Tickets, Joker has the second most ticket pre-sales for an R-rated movie for this year, at this point before release. It’s trailing John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, but is tracking ahead of other popular R-rated movies this year like IT: Chapter Two, and Us.

That’s a ...

‘The Irishman’ Review: Scorsese

'The Irishman' Review: Scorsese

‘The Irishman’ Review: Scorsese

Frank Sheeran was not a house painter — at least not in the vocational sense. In the criminal underworld, painting a house means whacking someone and, in the process, splattering their blood all over the walls and floor. As a young man, Frank was a truck driver by trade. That, after “house painting,” is probably the thing Frank does most in The Irishman — he drives. And all the driving Frank does throughout the film becomes The Irishman’s central metaphor for his (and our) journey through life.

This massive 209-minute film, which feels like a career summation for director Martin Scorsese and star Robert De Niro, is structured as a cinematic nesting doll of flashbacks...

The Shape Of Things

The Shape Of Things plays like the dark flipside to She’s All That. Following the success of I Know What You Did Last Summer, Freddie Prinze Jr was quickly snapped up for a run of rom-coms. This includes She’s All That, Boys And Girls, Summer Catch, and Down To You. He seemed practically inspirable from co-star Matthew Lillard during this period too, so in addition to She’s All That and Summer Catch, they also appeared together in video game adaptation Wing Commander and both live-action Scooby-Doo movies.

She’s All That remains Prinze Jr’s most popular movie, however, and the story finds him as a jock tasked with taking so-called nerd Laney (Rachael Leigh Cook) and transforming her into prom queen...
