Joker to hit Indian screens two days ahead of schedule
The film will now clash at the box office with Yash Raj Film's War, which stars Hrithik Roshan, Tiger Shroff and Vaani Kapoor
Joker will now be releasing across India on October 2. Earlier it was scheduled for release on October 4 in the country. The Indian audience will thus get to watch the film two days before the rest of the world. In US, the film will hit theatres on October 4.
The film will now clash at the box office with Yash Raj Film's War, which stars Hrithik Roshan, Tiger Shroff and Vaani Kapoor. Considering it is a national holiday - Mahatma Gandhi's birth anniversary - both films are expected to bring people to theatres on the first day of release.
Directed by Todd Philips, the film tells the story of DC Comic's favourite villain from a fresh point of view.
Joker received an eight-minute standing ovation from the audience after its first screening at the Venice Film Festival last month. The film won the prestigious Golden Lion award at the festival, while Phoenix won the Best Actor award at the Toronto Film Festival.
