It will be Joker versus War come October 2 as the Joaquin Phoenix starrer which was supposed to release on October 4 has been preponed to October 2. The sudden announcement of seeing Phoenix’s Oscar buzz came on Wednesday with the official Twitter handle of Warner Bros India announcing, “#JokerMovie will now release in India on Wednesday, October 2nd, two days ahead of its initial scheduled release!”
This announcement of Phoenix’s ‘bold, devastating and utterly beautiful’ movie release means it will come face to face with the Tiger Shroff and Hrithik Roshan starrer 'War' which Shroff compares it to ‘Ethan Hunt versus James Bond and Superman vs Batman... on this battlefield’.
"There are very different styles of action, location and get-up. It's more on the lines of Mission Impossible. It's like Ethan Hunt versus James Bond and Superman vs Batman... on this battlefield. We are fighting in air, on land. It is a visual spectacle. It is a great action entertainer," Tiger told IANS.
Talking about working with Roshan and Yash, Shroff commented, "I am both nervous and excited. I am very excited because I got an opportunity to work with my hero. It is a huge opportunity for me. I am working with Yash Raj Films for the first time, and of course my director Siddharth Anand... he is fantastic. I am looking forward to working with him again in Rambo," said the actor.
Directed by Todd Phillips, Joker also co-stars Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz and Frances Conroy in significant roles.
