- Story Text: Joaquin Phoenix brought the villain to Venice at the "Joker" world premiere on Saturday (August 31), where he shone on a star-studded red carpet.
Phoenix was joined on the red carpet by his fiancee, actress Rooney Mara, and director Todd Phillips ("The Hangover", "War Dog").
Cate Blanchett, Nicholas Holt and Bella Thorne were among a host of other glamorous guests.
In "Joker", Oscar-nominee Phoenix plays Arthur Fleck, a failed stand-up comedian who turns into a psychotic murderer. He follows in the footsteps of Jack Nicholson, the late Heath Ledger and most recently Jared Leto to play Batman's nemesis, turning him from a vulnerable beaten down loner into the confident, makeup wearing baddie.
The movie, which is screening in competition in Venice, is slated for release in the United States on October 4.
