The other Joker spin-off movie will be about criminal couples counseling 

We’re coming around on Todd Phillips’ Joker movie, which will star Joaquin Phoenix as a refreshingly straightforward version of the Clown Prince Of Crime in a lower-budget superhero drama that just happens to be about a guy in funny makeup, but let’s not forget that Warner Bros. has some other Joker-centric spin-offs…

Margot Robbie is great, but I, Tonya is still about as sensationalistic as a tabloid

A.V. Club film editor A.A. Dowd and staff critic Ignatiy Vishnevetsky sit down to discuss the Goodfellas-biting biopic I, Tonya, starring Margot Robbie as the disgraced figure skater. Craig Gillespie’s sensationalist take on the Tonya Harding story covers her life, her career, and of course the 1994 attack on Nancy…

Margot Robbie skates around the diet-Scorsese tricks of the Tonya Harding biopic I, Tonya

B

From the opening minutes of Craig Gillespie’s unreliably narrated, glibly entertaining biopic I, Tonya, it’s clear that Margot Robbie has disappeared into the role of disgraced figure skater and pop culture punching bag Tonya Harding.

Warner Bros. announces a second Joker movie with Jared Leto and Margot Robbie

A little bear cheers up the whole world in first trailer for Goodbye Christopher Robin
