Großartiger neuer Trailer zu Todd Phillips Joker, der als blutrünstiger Psychothriller bereits als einer der besten Film des DC-Universums gehandelt wird.
Dazu neue Teaser und Clips zum japanischen Trash-Prequel Rise of the Machine Girls, zur spanischen SciFi-Alegorie The Platform, die anscheinend irgendwo zwischen The Cube und Das Große Fressen angesiedelt ist, zum Horrorschlock Girl on the Third Floor, zu Steven Soderberghs Crime-Comedy The Laundromat, zur letzten Staffel von Mr. Robot, zum Agenten-Drama The Spy mit Sacha Baron Cohen, zur Animationsserie Primal von Genndy Tartakovsky (Samurai Jack), sowie zur Doku Memory: The Origins of Alien von Alexandre O. Philippe, der mit 78/52 die möglicherweise nerdigste Filmdoku über die Duschszene in Hitchcocks Psycho abgeliefert hatte.
Director Todd Phillips “Joker” centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone fictional story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck, who is indelibly portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix, is of a man struggling to find his way in Gotham’s fractured society. A clown-for-hire by day, he aspires to be a stand-up comic at night…but finds the joke always seems to be on him. Caught in a cyclical existence between apathy and cruelty, Arthur makes one bad decision that brings about a chain reaction of escalating events in this gritty character study.
Long gone are the days of freedom. Preying on the weak and defenseless, the Dharma Family rules the town. It is now a time devoid of justice and order. Abandoned by their mother at a young age, Ami and her sister Yoshie scrape by doing fight shows for the Gotai Troupe. One night, while Ami is at night school, Yoshie carries out a surprise attack on the black market organ organization run by the evil Dharma Family.
Unexpectedly, Yoshie is met by the Battle Bust Sisters – female killing machines designed by Dharma Aoyama – and is captured. Hearing of this, Ami rushes to her sister’s rescue. Outmatched, Ami has an arm ruthlessly severed off by Dharma Aoyama before being dumped unconscious in the street. Hours later, Ami awakes more determined than ever to get her sister back. Defying excruciating pain, she attaches a machine gun to the stump of her left arm and charges into the enemy’s lair only to find that she is too late: Yoshie has been transformed into a human cyborg programmed to kill her! Worse still, Dharma Aoyama has enlisted the talents of Kikyo, the deadliest of assassins. As they face off, the battle escalates into out-and-out war! Will Ami find a way to bring her sister back?
A citizen of a not-too-distant dystopia voluntarily incarcerates himself with the promise of increased social mobility upon release, but becomes so radicalized by his captivity that he will risk everything to ride a devilish dumbwaiter on a one-way ticket to protect a panna cotta.
To appreciate this trajectory, one needs to understand his prison: The Pit – a provocative permutation of a panopticon whereby hundreds of cells are vertically stacked, and hollowed out through the middle. Each day, a platform adorned with a decadent feast descends through the tower from its summit. It stops on each level for a few minutes, keeping those near the top well-fed, and those at the lower levels fighting for leftovers… if any remain.
