New York City, NY - A group of protesters gathered outside a courthouse in New York City yesterday, but their cause was not related to President Donald Trump as many had expected. Instead, the demonstrators were protesting in support of the upcoming movie "Joker", which is set to release next month.
The film has been receiving significant buzz and controversy ever since its premiere at the Venice Film Festival last month. Critics have raised concerns that the violent content of the movie could inspire real-life violence among viewers.
The protesters outside the courthouse chanted slogans such as "We want Joker" and held up signs displaying images from the film. The demonstration was peaceful, with no reports of any violence or arrests.
Interestingly enough, crews filming outside of the courthouse were facing a different kind of disruption before this protest occurred - they were concerned about potential disruptions due to ongoing court proceedings involving President Trump.
Despite these concerns, it appears that filming for "Joker" will continue without further incident. However, it remains to be seen if this will be just one instance of many protests surrounding this highly controversial film.
"We understand that some people may find certain aspects of our film uncomfortable," said director Todd Phillips in response to criticisms surrounding "Joker". "But we believe it's an important story that needs to be told."
With only weeks left until its release date on October 4th, it's clear that all eyes will remain on "Joker" and its reception among audiences worldwide.
