After concerns and criticisms over the impact of the film's violence could have on copycats, the studio behind Joker has disinvited the press to the film's premiere on Saturday. Only photographers will be allowed to access the cast and filmmakers.
The director recently blamed the "far left" for the controversy, and Joaquin Phoenix walked out of an interview when asked about the potential for inciting violence.
The Oscar race is on, I guess? MESS.
