Regarding the picture of Lady Gaga as Harley- I know this isnt a traditional take on Joker or Harley so its fine for what it is. Kind of a boring look though if thats all its going to be. Unless thats just an early look and it changes later on in the film.

^ Yeah, lost all that House of Gucci tubbie weight. She looks smokin' now. I don't have a problem with her look, which I'm sure will be one of many.

re: Joker: Folie Deux (2024, D: Phillips) S: Joaquin Phoenix, Lady Gaga

Admittedly, I am intrigued by a Lady GaGa Harley Quinn. I have long wanted to see a serious and well-done fall of the doctor into the monster. (At one point on here, I think I made a pitch . . . ) Don't get me wrong, Margo Robbie's sex-kitten-serial-killer is awesome, but the character is so much more. This "grounded" world would have been a great way to tell her story and make a compelling Harley Quinn focused movie. I would say "solo" but that really can't really be done in her origin story.

That said, I was not a fan of Joker and am really not excited about more misery porn.

I am guessing from the photos that this incarnation of Quinn retains the origin of her being Dr. Quinnzell first and then transforming into Harley after spending too much time with Joker.

I don't think there are words that can accurately express how much I am looking forward to this film. So much up my alley.
I hope the songs are amazing.

I recall some early reports/rumours that she will not be a doctor but instead another patient.

Looking forward to the trailer. How come Batman hypes up so well? Marketing hype is always A+, going back to 1989.

52 million of that budget is for Phoenix and GaGa's salaries. I'm sure the rest will be funneled away somewhere.

I know I probably shouldnt care because thats the studios problem. But nowadays a movie with that kind of spend is rarely successful at the box office. And if this movie isnt good, it will be even worse. It will only hurt WBs future if it isnt successful.

It's an Elseworlds title not tied into Gunn's Universe, so if it fails, no one will care. Profit from the first film basically paid for this, so WB is already ahead anyway.

Unless this is just completely bonkers in a bad, bad way, I have to imagine the box office floor for this movie is at least $600 million.

The original was nominated for 11 Oscars, won 2, and $1 bil+ box office... of course the budget is going to be huge due to salary alone. Phoenix, Philips, Gaga, the producers are getting paid big money.

If a Barbie sequel happens, expect at minimum $60-80 mil of that budget going to getting back Robbie, Gosling, Gerwig, Baumbach.

Also, didn't the first movie cost something like $50 million? They should have kept the budget for the sequel close to that.

If they agreed to a budget of $200 Million will it still be rated R? The track record of movie franchises where the original is rated R and its sequels are lesser ratings are not good.

I hope it's PG and it's Joker's take on My Big Fat Greek Wedding. "Some hearts are mean to be healed".

And I'm guessing that $200 million doesn't include marketing, etc. Oof. I'm still shocked the first one did as well as it did.

If fantasy film production isnt a thing, it should be.
