Prime 1 Studio Joker Movie Statue

Easily one of the most memorable moments from last year’s Joker movie was seeing the increasingly unstable future Clown Prince of Crime take a victory dance down the stairs of The Bronx in New York. Set to the tune of Gary Glitter’s “Rock & Roll Part 2,” the scene in question finds Joaquin Phoenix dancing wildly and energetically as he descends the staircase, and now you can have that moment immortalized on your shelves in the form of an incredibly detailed new Prime 1 Studio Joker statue.

Joaquin Phoenix Almost Played Batman

Joaquin Phoenix took home plenty of awards, including the Oscar for Best Actor, for his lead performance in Joker, the origin story of Batman’s most notorious nemesis. However, back in the early 2000s when Warner Bros. Pictures was looking to reboot The Dark Knight with a new feature film franchise, Phoenix almost played The Caped Crusader himself.

Director Darren Aronofsky recently shed light on the time he spent trying to get a Batman movie off the ground following the success of Requiem for a Dream in 2000. Aronofsky previously revealed that he wanted Joaquin Phoenix to take on the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman, but the studio wanted to take the DC Comics superhero in a completely different direction, and they wanted someone else in the lead role.

2020 BAFTAs Winners

Our friends across the pond have handed out their equivalent of the Academy Awards with the British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards, or the BAFTAs. Since these are British-centric awards, more love is typically given to movies made by U.K. filmmakers, so it should come as no surprise that 1917 and director Sam Mendes walked away with Best Film and Best Director, as well as Outstanding British film, and a handful of other awards too.

Parasite

Last weekend, the 2020 SAG Awards honored achievements in acting in both film and television from last year.
