Now Screening: To Screen or Not to Screen ‘Joker,’ ‘Lucy In the Sky’? | THR News


– Here’s your 60-second breakdown of what to watch this weekend
in THR’s Now Screening. First, Joker dances into theaters. – Are you having any negative thoughts? All I have are negative thoughts. – Joaquin Phoenix stars
as the Joker himself, AKA Arthur Fleck, a clown who dreams of becoming a standup comedian. The movie’s star-studded cast
also includes Robert De Niro, Deadpool 2 actress Zazie
Beetz, and Glow’s Marc Maron. – One small thing. – Yeah. – When you bring me out, can
you introduce me as Joker? – And speaking of big
names, Lucy in the Sky, starring Natalie Portman and John Hamm, also rockets onto the
big screen this weekend. (intense ethereal music) – [Mark] Yep, there it is. – Uh, excuse me? – Major Goodwin has a theory that he can tell who’s walked in
space just by looking at them. – It is more than theory. – The sci-fi drama stars
Portman as Lucy Cola, an astronaut transformed by her
experience of being tethered in space outside a space
shuttle during a mission. – Cola, abort.
(alarm beeping) – [Lucy] Negative, I can fit. – [Man] Cola! – [Mark] She’s a tough cookie. – And get this, Zazie
Beetz is also in the movie, meaning she has two films
in theaters this weekend. Okay, queen. Until next Friday’s Now Screening, I’m Tiffany Taylor for The
Hollywood Reporter News.
