It took a while, but I've come around to being excited for Todd Phillips' Joker movie. First shown at CinemaCon on Tuesday, there's no joking, some teasing, and an overwhelming sense of anticipation in th first glimpse of Todd Phillips' new film.

Unlike most comic book films these days, Joker proved exceedingly generous with the set material, meaning that some of the trailer scenes will be familiar to anyone who kept track of the movie's production.
