The intense final trailer for director Todd Phillips’ Joker is here, and it shows Joaquin Phoenix in his full greasepainted glory as Arthur Fleck, a clown-for-hire by day who aspires to be a stand-up comic at night.

In case you didn’t already notice from the first trailer released back in April, Jokeraims to be a “gritty character study” of DC’s most famous criminal clown, according to the film’s official synopsis:

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.

Three-time Oscar nominee Phoenix is joined in the trailer by co-stars Robert De Niro and Marc Maron in the gripping final trailer above.

It’ll have to tide you over until Joker hits theaters nationwide on October 4, 2019.
