Warner Bros. Pictures has premiered the first official poster from filmmaker Todd Phillips’ highly anticipated “Joker: Folie a Deux” starring Joaquin Phoenix and Lady Gaga. The one-sheet comes ahead of the first trailer launching this time next week.

The R-rated 2019 “Joker” grossed $1 billion and landed Joaquin Phoenix the best actor Oscar. Phoenix returns as Arthur Fleck here in a story that will reportedly unfold almost entirely within Gotham City’s Arkham Asylum and will have musical elements.

Lady Gaga, Zazie Beetz, Catherine Keener, Brendan Gleeson, and Jacob Lofland co-star in the movie which Phillips once again directs from a script he wrote with Scott Silver.

The film is considered a DC Elseworlds project, thus is not part of the Peter Safran and James Gunn DC Universe.

Previously it has been said the new film will take its visual inspiration from Francis Ford Coppola’s lavish musical “One from the Heart”. It’s also said to sport several times larger than its predecessor.

“Joker: Folie a Deux” is slated to premiere on October 4th.
