Joker - Official Images - Fandango Poster - Featured - 01

The Joker script has made its way online for everyone to read and enjoy. It’s always interesting to see how actors interpret what was once words just on a page to what we see on the screen.

With awards season in full swing, and Joker raking a healthy number of nominations already, the Joker script is going to be playing a key role to be sure.

Taking a look at the Joker script PDF, Todd Phillips & Scott Silver waste no time making it clear how this film fits in with everything we know.

This story takes place in its own universe. It has no connection to any of the DC films that have come before it.

We see it as a classic Warner Bros. movie. Gritty, intimate and oddly funny, the characters live in the real world and the stakes are personal.

Although it is never mentioned in the film, this story takes place in the past.

Let’s call it 1981.

It’s a troubled time. The crime rate in Gotham is at record highs. A garbage strike has crippled the city for the past six weeks. And the divide between the “haves” and the “have- nots” is palpable. Dreams are beyond reach, slipping into delusions.

The Joker script is free to read, and a handy reference for all Batman and movie fans.

Joker is available digitally now, and will hit Blu-ray in January.
