"In an unsettling origin story, Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix) exists on the fringes of society and is utterly ignored by others. His outcast existence begins to take a toll on his mental state, his narrative an unnerving study on the extent to which a person can unravel. Written and directed by Todd Phillips, co-starring Robert De Niro. "~Maggie Sadler
The making of: A Behind-the-scenes look at the creation of the film, Joaquin Phoenix alternate takes, costume tests
Joker is probably hands down the best movie of 2019. An absolute must see. It's more than just a comic book movie for another comic book character. This is in depth with some very close to home, real world issues while slowing watching a mentally ill man descend into utter madness
Forever alone in a crowd, failed comedian Arthur Fleck seeks connection as he walks the streets of Gotham City. Arthur wears two masks -- the one he paints for his day job as a clown, and the guise he projects in a futile attempt to feel like he's part of the world around him. Isolated, bullied and disregarded by society, Fleck begins a slow descent into madness as he transforms into the criminal mastermind known as the Joker.
Get this movie, it is an instant classic. No spoilers here but prepare yourself for a deep emotional experience. At the end of this movie you’ll won’t look at society the same. It’s a movie based on a fantasy character but the emotion and story telling of this film is as if it was based on a true story, simply because what takes place in the film happens everyday in this cruel unforgiving world! 6 stars without a question!
Simply the best way to own one of the best movies.

Steelbooks are great, especially when it's for movies that are important to you. JOKER was simply one of the absolute best movies of the past year and it gets the Steelbook treatment it deserves. I've bought many Steelbooks from Best Buy in the past and this is one of the best they've ever released. The cover is glossy and vibrant, with a close-up of Joker in his red suit on the talk show for the front and the iconic image of him dancing on the stairs for the back. The interior has the shot of Joker applying his makeup in the mirror. As for the quality of the film itself, it looks better than ever at home in 4K. The film is a must-own and this Steelbook is the absolute best way to own it.
First of all this movie looks amazing in 4k. The cinematography is excellent as well as the outstanding performance by Joaquin Pheonix. The setting is very reminiscent of Taxi Driver which may have been inspiration for the movie. The musical score is also perfect for this portrayal of the Joker. It does not hold back on the violence and earns its R rating.
Not your typical superhero movie by a long shot, all about the story, proper origin story.
I loved the intensity of this movie and how uncomfortable it makes you feel (in a good way), absolutely recommend it! I mean nominated for 11 Oscars...
Steelbook version is great, just wish the cover art was a bit better.
A:AnswerUnfortunately, there are no pre-orders for when it comes back in stock. As for re-stocking on sold out items Best Buy doesn’t provide dates nor notification if there will be. It’s best to continuously check to see if the item you want has been made available but more than likely limited edition items will remain sold out.
