Warner Bros. to rerelease Joker in select theaters on January 17

Warner Bros. Pictures, Village Roadshow Pictures, and BRON Creative’s Joker will return to more than 750 cinemas across North America beginning Friday, January 17.

The Joker rerelease comes as the film has garnered numerous awards and award nominations across all categories, among them: 11 Academy Award and BAFTA Award nominations — including Best Picture — more than any other film; two Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice Awards wins, for star Joaquin Phoenix’s performance and composer Hildur Guðnadóttir’s haunting score; and the Golden Lion, the top honor at the Venice Film Festival.

“With the continued interest in ‘Joker’ as a result of its recognition during this exciting awards season, we wanted to give audiences the chance to see the film on the big screen, whether for the first time or again,” Jeff Goldstein, President of Domestic Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures, said.

Joker took in over $1 billion worldwide in its initial run to become the highest-grossing R-rated film of all time. The movie is now available on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital, and you can pick up your copy here!

Director Todd Phillips’ original, standalone origin story Joker explores the world of—and according to—Arthur Fleck. Indelibly portrayed by Phoenix, Arthur is a man facing the cruelty and outright scorn of society, along with the indifference of a system that allows him to spiral from vulnerability into depravity. A clown-for-hire by day, he strives to be a stand-up comic at night…but finds that the joke always seems to be on him. He’s out of tune with everyone around him, as evidenced by his uncontrollable, inappropriate laughter, which gains momentum as he attempts to contain it, exposing him to further ridicule—and even violence.

Arthur, who devotes himself to caring for his fragile mother, seeks out every father figure he’s never had, from wealthy businessman Thomas Wayne to TV host Murray Franklin. Caught in a cyclical existence teetering on the precipice of reality and madness, one bad decision brings about a chain reaction of escalating, ultimately deadly, events.

Joaquin Phoenix stars as the titular villain with Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2), Bill Camp (Red Sparrow, Molly’s Game), Frances Conroy (American Horror Story), Brett Cullen (Narcos), Glenn Fleshler (Barry), Douglas Hodge (Penny Dreadful), Marc Maron (GLOW), Josh Pais (Motherless Brooklyn), and Shea Whigham (First Man).

The film is being produced by Phillips and MCU mainstay Bradley Cooper under their Joint Effort banner, and Emma Tillinger Koskoff. It is executive produced by Richard Baratta, Joseph Garner, and Bruce Berman.
