Joaquin Phoenix 's Joker to be re-released in India on Valentine's Day
The makers believe that re-releasing Joker will not only draw new audiences to the theatre but will also garner momentous repeat footfall
Joaquin Phoenix-starrer Joker, which has become an award-season favourite, will be re-released in India on February 14.
Todd Phillips' Joker is an origin story about superhero Batman's biggest enemy, Joker. Phillips, along with Phoenix, turned the story of a mentally unstable loner and failed comedian Arthur Fleck, who picks violence to find calmness in his life, into a blockbuster. It was earlier released in India on October 2, 2019.
Now given the massive Oscar buzz around the film with 11 nominations including Best Actor, Best Film and Director, Warner Bros Pictures will re-release the film for the Indian audiences on February 14, four days after the Oscar awards ceremony.
The makers believe that re-releasing Joker will not only draw new audiences to the theatre but also garner momentous repeat footfall.
Joker is going to be re-released in Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru, Gurgaon, Noida, Chennai, Kolkata, Pune, Ernakulam, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Mysore, Ahmedabad, and Coimbatore, amongst other cities.
The Warner Bros project has become the highest-grossing R-rated movie of all time and has crossed the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office. A follow-up to the film is also in the works.
