Latest Joker photos show Joaquin Phoenix in a full clown costume

With filming launching last week, we’ve been seeing a lot of Joaquin Phoenix’s take on the Clown Prince of Crime from Warner Bros. and DC Films’ Joker movie these past few days, and now director Todd Phillips has shared another behind-the-scenes image from the villain’s origin story, which shows Phoenix’s Arthur Fleck in full clown costume and makeup.

And here’s a few set photos of Arthur in his clown costume as he makes a phone call – and judging by his facial expressions, it doesn’t seem to be good news. Could this be the “one bad day” that sends Arthur over the edge?

The Haunting of Hill House Review: Netflix's Horror Series Is a Provocative Examination of Isolation and Belonging

While horror films often dominate the fall box office, the genre still rarely gets its due on the small screen -- at least in any traditional sense. American Horror Story is nearly all camp now, The Walking Dead has always been more of a character drama with horror elements, and even Black Mirror

‘American Horror Story: Apocalypse’ mystery: Who is Michael Langdon and what’s his connection to Rubber Man?

Who is Michael Langdon (Cody Fern), the mysterious long-haired character on “American Horror Story: Apocalypse” that’s hanging out with Rubber Man and causing all kinds of problems for our Outpost 3 survivors? As it turns out, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen Michael before on FX’s anthology series.

Way back in the first season, Tate Langdon (Evan Peters) put on the infamous Rubber Man suit and raped the new owner of the so-called “Murder House,” Vivien Harmon (Connie Britton). Vivien became pregnant with Tate’s twin babies, and while one died in childbirth the other was eventually given to nosy neighbor Constance Langdon (Jessica Lange). Constance raised Rubber Man’s child, whom she named Michael, and came home one day to find out that he’d killed his babysitter.

"Horror Story" Fave Leslie Grossman Teases Future "Apocalypse" Twists

The world of "American Horror Story: Apocalypse" may seem like a bleak nightmare, but for Leslie Grossman, it’s a dream come true. "Ryan [Murphy] has a lot of fun writing for Coco — his fingerprints are all over that character," she tells TVLine. "I know she’s a strong flavor, but stick with her, because it gets interesting. She seems to be one thing, but you never know what she’ll turn into."

If it sounds like Grossman is being intentionally vague, it’s because she is. "I cannot say anything, only Ryan can do that at this point," she explains,

Former DC boss says Joker movie is “what DC should have been doing since Nolan”, deletes Twitter after backlash from Zack Snyder fans

Having spent the past few years focussing on the shared DC Extended Universe (and to varying degrees of success), Warner Bros. and DC Films are branching out next year with the standalone Joker movie, which has just started production this past week.

The film, which is directed by Todd Phillips (The Hangover), is set to explore The Joker’s descent into madness, with Joaquin Phoenix becoming the latest actor to take on the role of the iconic Clown Prince of Crime.

As with all DC projects these days it seems, Joker has been met with a mixed reaction from fans so far, but one person who seems to be firmly in the “excited” camp is that of former DC Entertainment president Diane Nelson, who shared the following tweet following our first look at Phoenix in his Joker make-up:

“Love It! Great story, great actor, specific and string vision from talented director,

So, what do you make of that look? How does this first impression stack up against Phoenix’s rival Jared Leto Joker over in the Dceu? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below…

Joker centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. Todd Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.

‘American Horror Story’s’ Leslie Grossman Teases the ‘Layers’ of Her ‘Apocalypse’ Character

  • Variety
‘American Horror Story’s’ Leslie Grossman Teases the ‘Layers’ of Her ‘Apocalypse’ Character
As socialite Coco St. Pierre Vanderbilt in the eighth installment of Ryan Murphy’s anthology drama “American Horror Story,” Leslie Grossman has drawn inspiration from a real-life socialite on a competing network: “The Real Housewives of New York” star Tinsley Mortimer.

“Tinsley is not as ruthless as Coco is, but there are definitely things I borrowed from her,” she tells Variety.

Coco started the “Apocalypse” season concerned about growing her social media following, but very quickly had to shift gears to focus on surviving as a nuclear holocaust loomed. Luckily, her father had secured her a $100-million spot in Outpost 3, a special shelter set up for the elite — both the wealthy, and the genetically gifted. She made it there, despite flying on a plane without a pilot, and spent 18 months listening to the same song on a loop, eating dwindling amounts of rations, and staring at the same small group

Cable Ratings: American Horror Story Plunges, Mayans M.C. Stabilizes

American Horror Story: Apocalypse did not get off to the best of starts last week, and the ratings dipped even further this week. 

American Horror Story Season 8 Episode 2 slumped over 25 percent week-to-week, averaging 2.2 million viewers and a 1.1 rating among adults 18-49. 

While the erosion is apparent, the show still managed to emerge as the highest-rated show in the 10/9c slot in the demo. 

But with premiere week just a few days away, it's difficult to imagine the ratings holding up against stiffer competition. 

The good news is that the show still plays well on the DVR front. According to FX, American Horror Story Season 8 Episode 1's numbers ballooned to 5.7 million total viewers.

3.5 million of which were in the advertiser-craved 18-49 demo. What's more, it was cable's second-most-watched program of the year in both the demo and total viewers. 

Only The Walking Dead beat it.

Charmaine Bingwa wins Heath Ledger Scholarship

Charmaine Bingwa.

Born in Western Australia to Zimbabwean parents, Charmaine Bingwa is the first openly gay and woman of colour to win the $US30,000 Heath Ledger Scholarship presented by Australians in Film.

“I’m stunned; this is an incredible platform,” Bingwa told If after accepting the award from Heath Ledger’s father Kim Ledger today at a dinner attended by eight of the 10 finalists at the Chateau Marmon in Los Angeles.

In her acceptance speech she told how Heath touched her life when she saw Brokeback Mountain. His character’s lines about ‘the pain of a life not lived’ inspired her to come out as a gay woman, she said.

“I heard the other day someone say that the most powerful currency you have is the impact you have on other people and I think Heath epitomises that. Heath personally taught me what the power of a performance can do,

‘Ahs: Apocalypse’ Ep Swears Crossover Stuff Is Coming, Explains Who (or What) Rubber Man Was

‘Ahs: Apocalypse’ Ep Swears Crossover Stuff Is Coming, Explains Who (or What) Rubber Man Was
(This post contains spoilers for Wednesday’s episode of “American Horror Story: Apocalypse,” “Morning After.”)

What. Just. Happened?

That’s probably your first thought after every episode of “American Horror Story,” but last night’s installment of Season 8 aka “Apocalypse” took that eternal question up to 11.

There was the reappearance of “Murder House” (Season 1) character Rubber Man, a weird last-minute reveal of Mead’s (Kathy Bates) not-so-human-looking insides, and the aggravating fact that we still haven’t gotten the ball rolling on this whole crossover aspect. Where are the “Coven” witches, guys?!? (Read all of our biggest questions here.)

Ryan Murphy Shares Sneak Peek Of Jessica Lange In American Horror Story: Apocalypse

You didn’t think Jessica Lange would sit back and watch FX’s American Horror Story descend into an apocalypse, now, did you?

Though the series veteran hasn’t featured on Ahs since the premiere of “Freak Show,” series creator Ryan Murphy (h/t Bloody Disgusting) has today posted a sneak peek of Jessica Lange decked out in costume as Constance Langdon, her enigmatic figure from “Murder House.”

This being American Horror Story, though, we imagine Ryan Murphy and his writing team have one or two tricks hidden up their collective sleeve, what with reports claiming that Lange is actually playing two characters for the aptly titled “Apocalypse” – not unlike Taissa Farmiga before her.

The big reveal comes as part of Murphy’s Instagram celebration for reaching 300,000 followers, with the official caption reading:

To celebrate 300 k followers, here’s a first look at the return of Queen Constance…the one and only Lady Lange…
