Empire August 2019

He’s one of the most iconic characters in movies, in comics, in pop culture full-stop. He’s been portrayed by some of the most beloved and renowned actors of all time. And yet you’ve never seen the Joker like you will in Todd Phillips’ Joker – a psychological crime-thriller that brings a brand new take on one of the greatest villains of all time, giving him an origin story and placing Joaquin Phoenix under the clown make-up.

The new issue of Empire takes a world-exclusive first look at DC’s dark and dangerous drama, heading into the editing suite with Phillips, and talking to Phoenix and producer Bradley Cooper (yes, that Bradley Cooper) about the radical comic-book movie that breaks all the rules. On this month’s subscriber cover you’ll find an exclusive portray of Phoenix’s Arthur Fleck – and his notorious clown-prince counterpart – shot by Niko Tavernise. Keep an eye for it arriving through your letter box soon – we hope it puts a smile on that face of yours.
