Here’s one way to make sure film marketing piques my interest: completely change approaches from one trailer to the next in the hopes of obscuring a movie’s actual premise. I honestly wouldn’t have given a second thought to the animated feature Playmobil: The Movie after seeing its first trailer, but today’s new one got my attention for the way it hides the premise explored the first time around. The film even has a brand new official synopsis which also tries to shield its actual plot. See what I mean below.

I must admit that while watching fresh-faced young actor Daniel Radcliffe in the Harry Potter film franchise, he never struck me as someone with exceptional potential in comedy.

Though they might not be huge hits in the ratings department, TBS has curated some fantastic comedies with incredible talent in recent years.

A few days ago, the news broke that Warner Bros. is developing a movie that would explore the origin story for The Joker. And while this Todd Phillips-drected, Martin Scorsese-produced project (!) sounds like a profoundly bad idea on many levels, it got the /Film staff talking. Who would you cast as the young version of Batman’s arch-nemesis? And more specifically, who would you cast as the young Joker in a movie that will be a standalone film unconnected to the larger DCEU and therefore untethered to Jared Leto’s performance in Suicide Squad?
So we put our brains together and came up with 14 names. These are not the actors that we think would actually be cast as a young Joker. Instead, these are the actors we’d like to see cast as a young Joker. After all, if they’re going to make this movie, they might as well cast someone interesting in the lead.
