Joaquin Phoenix Tries for the Oscar in Final 'Joker' Trailer

I still can’t believe WB thinks this movie is so good they’re premiering it at all the fall film festivals, but they are, so we’re going to find out just how good it is in a couple of days when it screens at Venice. Guessing it’s all about Phoenix’s performance of course, but can he really be the second actor to win an Oscar for playing the role of the Joker? That seems like a long shot, especially for a movie directed by Todd Philips (Old School, The Hangover).
