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 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 remarkable performance and composer Hildur Guðnadóttir’s haunting score; and the Golden Lion, the top honor at the Venice Film Festival.
Lauded by critics as a film that will stand the test of time, "Joker" sits on many coveted Top 10 lists, including AFI. The film’s other accolades to date include Variety’s Creative Impact in Directing Award for Phillips; the Palm Springs International Film Festival Chairman’s Award for Phoenix; the Camerimage Audience Award and its Golden Frog for cinematographer Lawrence Sher; two Screen Actors Guild Award nominations; a Producers Guild Award nod; and multiple guild nominations.
Jeff Goldstein, President of Domestic Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures, stated, "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."
"Joker" took in over $1 billion worldwide in its initial run to become the highest-grossing R-rated film of all time.
