The toxic relationship between Joker and Harley Quinn will be at the heart of Joker: Folie à Deux and the first glimpse of this film is finally here. Joaquin Phoenix and Lady Gaga dance like no one is watching in the first trailer for the Joker sequel, which perfectly captures their bad romance.

The new Joker movie borrows its title from the French term “folie à deux”, meaning “folly of two”, and it’s truly a perfect fit. This term is often used to describe the shared psychosis that we see Arthur Fleck and Harley Quinn develop during their times as inmates at Arkham Asylum.

The new trailer confirms that Joker: Folie à Deux will go down the musical route, and it features several impressive dance numbers. One of them is choreographed to “What the World Needs Now (Is Love Sweet Love)”, but the entire film will feature at least 15 renditions of well-known songs, according to Variety.

Joaquin Phoenix and Lady Gaga will be joined by an impressive group of supporting players, including Brendan Gleeson, Catherine Keener, Jacob Lofland, Steve Coogan, Ken Leung, Harry Lawtey, and Zazie Beetz. Todd Phillips returned to direct the sequel, which will hit the silver screen on October 4.
