[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”30114″ img_size=”900×500″ alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]The saying ‘making a mountain out of a molehill’ has never been more prevalent in cinema that it seemingly has been with the backlash for the upcoming Joker movie. Based on all the negativity surrounding the film from people who haven’t seen it, Warner Bros. Entertainment has decided to restrict press access from the red carpet. Way to go, critics, it’s like school. One makes a loud noise and everyone must be punished for it.
The event will take place this Saturday in Hollywood at the famous TCL Chinese Theater and will only allow photographers to have access to the talent and the filmmakers. Stars Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie, Beetz, Frances Conroy, and director Todd Phillips are expected to be there.
A studio spokesperson said:
“Our red carpet is comprised of photographers only. A lot has been said about ‘Joker,’ and we just feel it’s time for people to see the film.”
Even though plenty of movies glorify violence and showcase a misunderstood character who turns to insanity, people have picked the Joker to focus all of their negative attention on. Phillips and Joaquin have been doing double time trying to damage control, when no one has even seen the movie and those who have, have said it’s a masterpiece.
Hopefully, the red carpet can be about celebrating good filmmaking and that’s it.
