“…smile and put on a happy face.”
With these words, Warner Bros. Pictures, DC Comics, and ‘Hangover’ director Todd Phillips present the first teaser trailer for the much-anticipated film ‘JOKER.’ Starring the enigmatic Joaquin Phoenix–on and off-screen–DC Comics is attempting to replace one of two major characters within Gotham City for its current DC Expanded Universe (DCEU) in the Joker. Batman is next after Ben Affleck recently left the part.
For now, take a brand new look at ‘Joker.’
Unnerving, mysterious, weirdly entertaining and oddly intriguing. That sums up the Joker in Gotham City, whether on screen or in print.
While no actor will ever surpass Heath Ledger’s perfect performance as the Joker in ‘The Dark Knight’ directed by Christopher Nolan, Mr. Phoenix and Mr. Phillips have produced a snapshot of a captivating movie. It’s a patient and deliberate character piece that will unfold into dark fun within a gritty Gotham City in 1981.
They say comedy is tragedy plus time. That will be put to the test this fall as ‘JOKER’ arrives at a theater near you on October 4.
As the workweek revs its engine yet again with that soothing, comforting alarm sound, it’s important to find some form of levity to break some of this tension. As we search our desk of scattered papers and emails on our computers for those tasks due today and later this week, things can begin to feel overwhelming. Monday mornings are inherently stressful for that pursuit alone.
Thankfully, this blog tries to make Mondays just a little easier, more enjoyable and/or inspiring. The latter doesn’t so much apply today, but hopefully, the following clip will fall into the enjoyable category.
It appears The Hangover was a theatrical smash hit for audiences, as well as the cast, crew, and director.
Have a Better Week Than Last Week.

This Memorial Day will be the Epic conclusion to the story of the men who have twice before experienced the most awesomely insane-tooth aching-tattoo on the face-getting decked by Mike Tyson-shot in Thailand (pronounced “thigh-land”)-misplace a best friend and brother-in law on two different continents-putting sunglasses on a baby-Jonas Brothers concert going?-jumping over waterways with Mr. Chow-tiger wrangling-blackjack winning-getting married to a stripper-getting tasered by a Las Vegas police officer-crashing a boat on a beach to get to a wedding hangovers.
Turns out there was an open bar during intermission right before the curtains were set to rise for the third and final act. The Wolfpack is back!
