The Hollywood Read ep. 39

It’s Joker week, so we’re talking Joker‘s record-breaking box office*, Todd Phillips shoving his foot down his mouth, Joaquin Phoenix’s only somewhat hostile press tour, and the Oscar odds for the year’s most divisive movie. We also get into Martin Scorsese’s comments in re: Marvel movies and theme parks. Join us as we power through the final stage of The Discourse!

*The official box office tally ended up being $96 million.
