Another NFL Team Met With Kyler Murray Monday

first_imgformer oklahoma quarterback kyler murray at the orange bowlMIAMI, FL – DECEMBER 29: Kyler Murray #1 of the Oklahoma Sooners reacts after losing to the Alabama Crimson Tide in the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Capital One Orange Bowl at Hard Rock Stadium on December 29, 2018 in Miami, Florida. (Photo by Michael Reaves/Getty Images)The NFL Draft is nearly three weeks away, and it appears another team with an early selection has interest in Kyler Murray. While the Arizona Cardinals are projected to select the Oklahoma product with the No. 1 overall pick, the Oakland Raiders might join the sweepstakes.Oakland spent millions of dollars this offseason to improve its roster through free agency. General manager Mike Mayock also made the decision to acquire Antonio Brown in a trade with Pittsburgh.With three picks in the first round of the NFL Draft, it’s imperative that Oakland finds prospects that can contribute next season.Well, it turns out that Jon Gruden could have his sights set on drafting a quarterback.Regardless of all the rumors linking Murray to the Cardinals, the Raiders had a workout with the Heisman Trophy winner on Monday. Albert Breer of The MMQB first reported the news of the meeting.The Raiders’ official Twitter confirmed the meeting by posting a photo of Murray next to Tim Brown.Just Heisman stuff. pic.twitter.com/mK2ZeALtao— Oakland Raiders (@Raiders) April 1, 2019Murray heading to Oakland would change the landscape of the league. Not only would it give Gruden a dual-threat quarterback, but it’d also signify a potential trade involving Derek Carr.Considering how management holds Carr in such high regard, it’s possible that working out Murray is simply the team doing their due diligence. On the flip side, it could be a tactic to force other teams to trade up on April 25.Either way, the likelihood is that Murray will be off the board once the first five picks are over.last_img read more

Fourth Disclosure of Wrongdoing Report Released

first_imgThe province’s fourth disclosure of wrongdoing report was tabled in the legislature today, Nov. 25. The report, tabled by Human Resources Minister Carolyn Bolivar-Getson, covers the period of April 1, 2007 to March 31, 2008. “Accountability on the part of government is an important aspect in our employees’ careers,” said Ms. Bolivar-Getson. “The disclosure of wrongdoing regulations and policy ensure that our employees have a safe and reliable avenue to report any wrongdoing in the workplace.” Approved in September 2004, the province enacted policy and disclosure regulations, which build upon other protections for employees already established in legislation, regulations and collective agreements. “Our goal through the disclosure process is to make employees comfortable with reporting any cases of wrongdoing without fear of reprisal,” said Ms. Bolivar-Getson. In the time frame covered by the report, there were no disclosures of wrongdoing reported to deputy heads. The Office of the Ombudsman, in its annual report to the Public Service Commissioner, identified 21 inquiries received by the office related to the disclosure policy and regulations. The Ombudsman also opened two investigations. A disclosure reported at the Department of Health in the previous fiscal year was referred to the Ombudsman in 2007-08. That investigation resulted in a finding of wrongdoing and recommendations, which were acted upon by the department. The second investigation involves an outstanding issue that resulted in an investigation by the Ombudsman under the Ombudsman Act. The Public Service Commission, departments and the Office of the Ombudsman have continued efforts to raise awareness about the wrongdoing regulations and policy among employees. A copy of the report can be viewed on the Public Service Commission’s website at www.gov.ns.ca/psc/disclosure .last_img read more

Royal Air Maroc and Other Airlines Troll US Electronic Ban

Rabat – Affected airlines across the Middle East and North Africa have been having fun responding to the US government’s ban on most electronic devices onboard US bound flights.Last week, US officials decided to ban all electronics larger than cellphones on any flights into the US for designated companies, claiming a possible terrorist threat. This decision has sparked a lot of controversy across the globe as the ban targets only Muslim countries and recent theories that this ban actually benefits American charters, who remain unaffected, and will attract more passengers.In the meantime, as airlines prepare travellers for the implementation of these new measures, they are using humor to attract customers. Air Emirates, Etihad Airlines, Qatar Airways or Turkish Airlines have all published short videos while Royal Jordanian or Saudi Airlines published picture ads reassuring customers of the services abroad such as expanded library stocked with movies, albums, and magazines to keep flyers occupied. Emirates Airlines specifically asked: “who needs a laptop anyways” before promoting their on-flight entertainment.Royal Jordanian and Etihad Airways used social media to react to the ban with slogans such as “Make Flying Great Again” in reference to Trump’s campaign promise or “Ban Voyage,” tagging the President himself in the post.Meanwhile Morocco’s airline, Royal Air Maroc has also published its own set of messages. They started by posting a picture that said: “Koun Hani and Enjoy a Movie” referencing the British Government’s iconic World War II advice to “keep calm and carry on,” instead urging passengers to relax and enjoy one their on-flight entertainment. Other similar messages urge passengers to do other small activities such as play Sudoku, do some exercise, or simply, enjoy digital detox.Who really needs laptops and tablets? #ElectronicsBan pic.twitter.com/5SXO3aq2RW— Royal Air Maroc (@RAM_Maroc) March 24, 2017Additionally, Royal Air Maroc published a short video reacting to the ban. The short (40s) video stars a young girl and her father aboard one of the company’s Dreamliners. The young girl is watching an on-flight movie while her father appears distraught at not being able to do anything without his laptop.When he asks what she is doing, she tells him she’s watching a movie about a princess who accidently froze her whole kingdom, referencing one of Disney’s latest movies, Frozen. With her help, he sets up the movie on his own on-flight TV and settles back comfortably in his seat as the movie starts, visibly pleased by this service.While passengers will have to accommodate to the new travel rules when flying into the US, they can rest assured that airlines, such as Royal Air Maroc, will ensure they are entertained for the duration of their flights. In the meantime, these companies can have a little fun criticizing President Trump for this policy. read more

Eradicating poverty goes hand in hand with biodiversity protection – UN officials

“Maintaining biodiversity is related not only to direct conservation measures, but also to pursuing poverty reduction and human development in ways which are sustainable. This is of critical importance to the success of the post-2015 development agenda,” said Helen Clark, Administrator of the UN Development Programme (UNDP) at the opening of the High Level segment of the of the 12th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD COP-12) in Pyeongchang.“Human survival and wellbeing depend heavily upon the earth’s biodiversity. Biodiversity loss not only has serious implications for our natural environment: it also undermines our livelihoods, health, and food and water security,” she said in her remarks to the High-Level segment, which runs through Thursday, 16 October.Miss Clark noted that biodiversity protection will be crucial to the achievement of the sustainable development goals being developed by the UN General Assembly. The working group crafting those targets, which will succeed the landmark UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in 2015, has proposed two “stand-alone” goals for biodiversity: one on oceans; and another on terrestrial ecosystems. It has also proposed including biodiversity targets in other goals, such as those on food security and poverty eradication.“Tackling poverty and creating economic opportunity goes hand in hand with protecting biodiversity” Miss Clark said. “It will require leaders to see the links between the complex challenges we face and the solutions.”For his part, the Executive Director of the CBD, Braulio Ferreira de Souza Dias stressed that bringing biodiversity into the public discourse is essential to make progress.“We have to promote the understanding that biodiversity underpins sustainable development for economic and social well-being,” Mr. Dias said.He referenced the recently released Global Biodiversity Outlook 4 report, which found that while there has been an increase in action by countries to protect biodiversity, these are not enough and efforts need to be scaled up if they are to achieve the 20 biodiversity goals known as the Aichi targets before their 2020 deadline.“The Strategic Plan for Biodiversity is an agenda for sustainable development,” he said, adding that it goes beyond concern of the environment sector. The Plan broke new ground by recognizing the need to mainstream biodiversity into other sectors and processes.“And nowhere is that more vital than in the post-2015 development agenda and the sustainable development goals,” he said, explain that simply put, biodiversity is a critical foundation of the Earth’s life support system on which the welfare of current and future generations depends, as it provides, among others, basic goods, such as food, fibre, fuel and medicine; and provides ecosystem resilience and contributes to the ability to respond to unpredictable global changes and natural disasters.The High Level Segment of the COP-12 will give Government ministers and leaders from civil society organizations an opportunity to express their views on a wide range of topics related to biodiversity such as sustainable development, climate change, the economy and peace and security.There will be four panel discussions consisting of the following topics: How to integrate biodiversity into the sustainable development goals and post-2015 development agenda; integrating national biodiversity strategies and action plans into national and local development and poverty eradication strategies and planning processes; nature-based solutions to global challenges; and biodiversity and the creative economy. read more

More Subanons receive medical care

first_imgShortly after its successful four-day medical and dental mission in remote indigenous communities of Siocon town in Zamboanga del Norte, TVI Resource Development Philippines, Inc. (TVIRD) conducted another mission, this time to more isolated portions of this municipality. Subanon indigenous peoples (IPs) of the Gulangan-Baluboan area – accessible only by foot through steep and jagged mountain ridges, across several rivers, and over tall cogon grasses – warmly welcomed members of the medical team when they arrived with medical supplies and equipment after a 7-km journey from TVIRD’s Canatuan Project site. One of the several rivers that the TVIRD medical team crossed to reach the Gulangan-Baloboan area, which is accessible only by foot. Thank you very much for coming, even though you suffered and endured so much difficulties along the way, just so that the much needed medical services would reach our place. Ever since, nothing of the sort ever reached us,” said Council of Elder member Fernandez Anda. Timuay (tribal chief) Elino Tii was also on hand to welcome the medical team, led by Companynurse Lois Ladera-Esnane and Community Relations and Development Office’s (CReDO) Communications Specialist Noelle Nazareno. This steep riverbank did not deter members of the TVIRD team from pursuing their medical mission to far-flung cultural communities. An exciting adventure that makes for a fulfilling job. A total of 40 Subanons availed themselves of the free medical services; some came for consultation, young boys for circumcision, while others received medicines, vitamins and food supplements. Remarkably, the Gulangan and Baluboan residents were found to be in relatively good health; there was only an isolated case of a young girl afflicted with skin disease, and she was immediately given proper medical treatment. Common complaints were backaches and body pains, most likely due to manual work. And since there is no clinic or hospital near the twin villages, the TVIRD team provided the residents with a cellular phone unit, which will serve as the residents’ direct link to the Company clinic in case of medical emergencies. TVIRD nurse Lois Esnane checks an elderly Subana as CREDO’s Noelle Nazareno looks on. “We care so much about the health of our partners in development.” Relief is in sight for this young Subanon, who goes for a final scratch before being treated for skin disease. “We care so much about the health and general welfare of the IPs in and around Canatuan, who are our partners in development,” Nazareno remarked. “Regardless of the difficulties we encountered along the way, we believe everybody needs access to basic medical services. It was an exciting adventure, one that makes my job truly fulfilling.” The TVIRD group was billeted at Anda’s humble abode for the two-day medical mission. TVIRD has been operating a gold and silver mine at Siocon’s Sitio Canatuan in Barangay Tabayo since mid-2004. The company’s copper and zinc production project is expected to become operational in early 2008. Last May, some 400 IPs from Sitio Paduan, Sitio Solonsangan, Tanuman Village and Skyline New Village – communities near Canatuan – received medical and dental care from a mission lead by TVIRD.

Solar power up and floating at former coal mine in Anhui China

first_imgChina state-owned developer CECEP has completed a 70 MWp floating solar plant on a former coal mining area, in Anhui Province, China, following tests and monitoring, according to the company that supplied the plant.France-based Ciel & Terre said the floating photovoltaic (PV) plant will mainly aim to improve the energy structure in the province and quality of the environment on site. Constructor China Energy Conservation Solar Technology Co and the engineering procurement and construction contractor China Energy Engineering Group Shanxi Electric Power Design Institute Co contributed to the build, the biggest floating solar plant in the world.To connect the 70 MWp floating PV power generation project to the national grid, a brand new 18-km-long 110 V overhead line was built to optimise the transport of electricity.Ciel & Terre said: “Behind the installation of this complex is the will to improve the energy structure of Anhui Province as well as the ecological environment quality of the Lianghuai mining subsidence area.“In the meantime, the initiative enables the promotion of the development of the ‘floatovoltaic’ technology, which also preserves water bodies. It prevents them from algae proliferation and oxidation, and even conserves water sources by reducing evaporation.”The floating solar plant covers an area of 1.4 km² and is expected to generate up to 77,693 MWh in its first year, according to Ciel & Terre. This represents the electricity consumption of some 20,910 households.“Within 25 years, the solar farm should generate around 1.94 million MWh,” the company said, saying the project adds to another 32 MWp GCL floating PV plant it supplied in Anhui.Headed by CECEP, the complex was built using the tried-and-tested Hydrelio® technology designed by Ciel & Terre.Ciel & Terre said: “CECEP chose Ciel & Terre for this major project for three complementary main reasons: the 13-year experience of the company in the field, the broad portfolio of 140 projects worldwide and the characteristic reliability and bankability of the Hydrelio system.”Through this technical system, the company contributed to the Chinese National Energy Agency’s aim to “bolster energy infrastructure and environmental quality”, Ciel & Terre said.Central inverters integrating medium voltage transformers have been used on this project – they stand on the water and not on the banks – while concrete poles support the electrical installation.The anchorage system was designed and installed under the supervision of Ciel & Terre China, a subsidiary of the French company. Overall, 1,500 helical anchors were used for the project and buried from 8-m to 15 m-depth to fit the configuration of the site.last_img read more

Epiroc SmartROC D65 gets future proofed

first_imgAutomation technology is transforming the mining industry and empowering drilling operations across the globe. The updated SmartROC D65 is the latest drill rig from Epiroc to make evolutionary strides. This tried and trusted rig now has Epiroc’s innovative automation-ready platform as its foundation. The new SmartROC D65 will premiere at Bauma in Munich, which runs April 8-14.The new SmartROC D65 has the intelligence and power to consistently and efficiently drill high-quality blast holes with accuracy and precision, and is loaded with smart features such as automated drilling and rod handling. The automation-ready platform also includes the new Auto Feed Fold feature. With the press of a button, Auto Feed Fold enables the operator to fold the feed for tramming or position it for drilling. This also comes in handy when operating one or more drill rigs remotely.“The SmartROC D65 really proves the power of autonomous machinery and brings the future of mining within reach today,” says Mattias Hjerpe, Global Product Manager at Epiroc. “Automation is revolutionising the industry, and we want our customers to remain at the forefront to secure the rewards.”“Customers are looking forward to the new generation SmartROC D65 which has been tested with the latest technology at an iron ore mine in northern Sweden,” Hjerpe told IM. The rig was developed both as the result of planned development of a new SmartROC D65 within Epiroc but also from customer feedback and requests.The SmartROC D65 is available in three different feed beam sizes to carry five, six or eight-metre pipes, and has the capacity to drill down to a depth of 56 m. When using 8 m pipes, it is possible to drill 16 m production holes with just one rod adding. The added power of the COP M7 hammer enables the SmartROC D65 to drill holes up to 9 in (110 to 229 mm) in diameter.Thanks to intelligent control of compressor load and engine rpm, the SmartROC D65 not only helps to optimise the blasting process with improved fragmentation. It also cuts an already low fuel consumption by a further 20% compared to the same size FlexiROC rig model. In addition, the rig offers multifunction joysticks and adjustable-speed tramming to further improve operator comfort and make trailer loading safer and easier.“The new SmartROC D65 will help our customers to decrease operational costs and boost productivity,” says Hjerpe. “Automation translates to greater efficiency, and efficiency translates to greater profits.”The operator interacts with the rig’s advanced control system via a responsive, 15 in touchscreen that presents everything from drilling parameters and diagnostics to real-time Measure While Drilling data (MWD). In addition, the updated SmartROC D65 is equipped with an efficient hydraulic system that reduces fuel burn and works with fewer pumps and hoses than the previous versions. The new SmartROC D65 uses 300 litres less hydraulic oil than previous versions. As other new features and improvements are released, they can easily be installed via software upgrades to keep the SmartROC D65 up-to-date and on the cutting edge at all times.“Yet another intelligent new rig from Epiroc, the SmartROC D60, has been updated with the new automation-ready platform. This robust and dependable surface drill rig features a shorter boom specially designed for efficient and demanding quarry work.”The new SmartROC D65 rig has also been designed to be ready for more forthcoming automation features soon to be released hence the description of it having been future proofed. Including the machine being tested in Sweden, several of the next generation SmartROC D65 rigs are understood to have been built, and are ready to be shipped to mining customers in Australia.last_img read more

Call of Duty Black Ops is the bestselling entertainment title of all

first_imgIt was just a week ago that analysts looking at the imminent release of Activision’s latest Call of Duty game, Call of Duty: Black Ops, thought it would sell significantly less than its predecessor, Modern Warfare 2.As they often are, though, the analysts are wrong: Black Ops is selling like gang-busters and absolutely shattering North American sales records after its firs 24 hours alone.AdChoices广告Activision and Treyarch have a lot to be proud of here: in the first day of being on sale, Black Ops has managed to earn over $360 million in North America alone. That’s actually $50 million more than what Modern Warfare 2 managed to make in its first twenty four hours when it was launched last year.What does this mean? Well, Call of Duty: Black Ops has not only shattered American game sales records, but also sales records for the entertainment market as a whole, soundly beating huge opening week blockbusters like Avatar, The Dark Knight Returns and Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince.Of course, games cost quite a bit more than films — six times more, in fact — so video games aren’t more popular than Hollywood. Yet. Give it time, though.Read more at Gearloglast_img read more

Mort subite du nourrisson certains décès pourraient être évités

first_imgMort subite du nourrisson : certains décès pourraient être évitésL’Institut de veille sanitaire (InVS) a mené son enquête concernant la mort subite du nourrisson en France. Si le nombre d’enfants décédés a nettement reculé ces dernières années, beaucoup de morts pourraient encore être évitées.Pendant près de 2 ans, l’Institut de veille sanitaire (InVS) a surveillé les cas de mort subite du nourrisson dans 17 départements s’étant portés volontaires. Entre octobre 2007 et septembre 2009, 281 morts inattendues ont été constatées mais seuls 256 de ces cas ont été considérés par l’Institut dans leur enquête. À lire aussiUne femme donne naissance à un bébé cyclope en EgypteSelon les données, la majorité des décès concernait des bébés de moins d’un an (220 cas) alors que les autres concernaient des enfants de moins de deux ans. Plus précisément, un décès sur deux est survenu autour des trois mois de l’enfant explique l’Associated Press, et 72% des morts subites ont eu lieu au domicile des parents. De plus, pour 33% des cas, les chercheurs sont parvenus à expliquer le décès. Ainsi, ils ont pu en identifier les causes majeures parmi lesquelles : l’infection responsable de 42% des cas, l’accident de couchage causant 24% des décès mais aussi l’inhalation massive de lait, les maladies métaboliques ou encore la diarrhée et la déshydratation. Les accidents de couchage peuvent survenir lorsque la literie est inadaptée, lorsqu’une couette, un oreiller ou un objet couvrent le visage de l’enfant ou lorsque celui-ci est couché sur le ventre, explique le Dr Juliette Bloch, pédiatre et rapporteur de l’étude. Mais le tabagisme passif est également un facteur important de mort subite du nourrisson précise l’AP. Ainsi, plusieurs morts du nourrisson auraient pu être évitées grâce à de simples mesures appliquées au couchage explique la pédiatre qui reconnait malgré tout que l’enfant peut parfois se retourner durant son sommeil. Un nombre de décès en net recul Pour limiter les risques d’accidents, le Dr Bloch recommande alors que les nourrissons dorment dans la chambre de leurs parents jusqu’à leurs six premiers mois et propose que des autopsies et investigations soient réalisées de façon plus systématique. Durant la période de l’enquête, seuls 7 cas sur 10 ont fait l’objet d’une autopsie. Bonne nouvelle néanmoins, selon l’étude : la mort subite du nourrisson a nettement diminué ces dernières années, passant de 1.464 cas en 1991 à seulement 244 cas en 2008.Le 23 mars 2011 à 17:01 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Working in Clark County Dave Stone owner New Creations Mobile Restoration

first_imgColumbian reader Sharon Lueck suggested New Creations Mobile Restoration to “Working,” saying, “I’ve been such a fan of theirs because I find what they do to be next door to magic. Things you would think were one-way thrashed are fixed to where you can’t even see where the damage was.”The magic she refers to is the transformative work done by business owner Dave Stone and his technicians on both hard and soft surfaces such as faded, flattened soft leather and vinyl seating, cat-clawed upholstery, scraped auto interiors, or scratched floors and counters. Items that may have been set on the curb or placed on Craigslist are –presto! — made new, damage gone. Stone says it’s gratifying to work on something like a worn leather couch by recoloring, restuffing and restoring it into pristine condition.“The customers’ expressions when they see the new color, they’re so ecstatic! It’s a huge payoff.”Name: Dave Stone.Business: New Creations Mobile Restoration.New Creations has a home office and all jobs are performed on site at the customer’s location.360-882-7529, www.newcreationsusa.comResidence neighborhood: Salmon Creek.Age: 47.Professional background: Our family is Canadian, and we moved here in 2000 from Vancouver, Canada. I grew up next to a car lot in Port Coquitlam, B.C., and at 15 years old, I got a job there as a lot attendant. I spent time after school and on weekends washing cars and helping prep sold units for delivery. I even skipped school one day during a snowfall to shovel snow and clear cars for the carlot for the extra money. After high school I went to the University of B.C. with the intent of earning a bachelor’s degree in chemistry. In my second year I met my wife, Kelly, and within a short time became engaged.Just before Christmas 1990, an opportunity came up for me to join my friend Larry’s young company, New Creations. It was a mobile upholstery repair business servicing local car dealerships including the one where I had worked as a teen. Strangely enough, he had started New Creations right here in Portland while he was attending college and brought the business back to Vancouver, B.C. This seemed like the perfect opportunity for me to be involved in a business where I could grow and make a good living. Kelly and I left university that year to get married and pursue our dreams together.After franchising in Vancouver/Richmond B.C. and building up a good business there, we decided to move our family to Vancouver, Wash., to expand our business into the U.S. So we packed up our stuff and two young sons and headed south across the border on this great adventure in June 2000.last_img read more

first_img Strong language, finger-pointing, community outrage and even congressional action has surrounded the operations of Pearson Air Museum since its management switched from the Fort Vancouver National Trust to the National Park Service earlier this year.Talks between the groups to create a new joint management strategy for the museum failed dramatically, resulting in the trust moving out and taking the exhibits with it.But the relationship between the parties may not be as irreparably broken as it seems. The two still have partnerships in place and continue to work together on other projects.The trust runs the bookstore at the historic site’s visitor center, and it is working together with the Park Service on the annual Independence Day at Fort Vancouver celebration.Of those arrangements, Tracy Fortmann, superintendent of the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site, said, “I believe they’re working fine.”And even as legislation moves ahead to transfer the museum and surrounding 7 acres from the Park Service to the city of Vancouver, Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, who authored the bill, says there’s still time for compromise. Click to enlargelast_img read more

Joker movie with Joaquin Phoenix Trailers release date cast plot and more

first_img Joker character coming to life in final trailer Now playing: Watch this: “There was a lot of fear; but I always say there’s motivating fear and debilitating fear,” Phoenix said in the August 2019 issue of Total Film magazine. “Now, when I look back, I don’t understand why. There’s the fear where you cannot make a step, and there’s the kind where it’s like, ‘OK, what do we do? That’s not good enough.’ And you’re digging deeper and deeper. I love that kind of fear. It guides us, makes us work harder.”  With the film confirmed via Instagram by director Todd Phillips to have an R rating, it seems an adult version of the Clown Prince of Crime will take center stage. Phillips also revealed the film’s story will be completely original, and won’t follow any previously published comic books that feature the Joker.  Now playing: Watch this: The Joker is the kind of comic book character that never gets old. Everyone from Heath Ledger to Jack Nicholson to Jared Leto has had their own spin on Batman’s grinning nemesis, who’s almost as old as Batman, having made his comics debut in 1940.  This year, Joaquin Phoenix will present his own version of DC Comics’ laughing psychopath in the upcoming Warner Bros. Joker movie. But initially when the Oscar-nominated actor was asked to portray the Joker in the upcoming movie, Phoenix said he hesitated.  First Joker trailer has a gritty, dark tone This article was originally published on April 3, 2019, and will be updated as news rolls in. 2:24 2:24 Now playing: Watch this: Post a comment 14 Photos Everything we know about the Joker movie Warner Bros. described the film to the Hollywood Reporter as an “exploration of a man disregarded by society [that] is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.” “I wouldn’t quite classify this as like any genre,” Phoenix said in an interview with ComicBook.com in 2018. “I would not say it’s a superhero movie, or a studio movie. Underneath the excitement of these films, and the size of them, there are these incredible characters that are dealing with real-life struggles.” Filming began in September 2018. The movie is rumored to be working with a roughly $55 million budget. center_img The Joker: See all the actors who’ve played the DC Comics villain When will Joker hit theaters? Joker will be released in Australia on Oct. 3, 2019, and then worldwide on Oct. 4. Meet the cast  Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur Fleck/Joker Marc Maron as Ted Marco Robert De Niro as Murray Franklin Alec Baldwin Shea Whigham Zazie Beetz as Sophie Dumond Brett Cllen as Thomas Wayne Dante Pereira-Olson as Young Bruce Wayne Douglas Hodge as Alfred Pennyworth Frances Conroy as Penny Fleck Glenn Fleshler Josh Pais as Hoyt Vaughn Bill Camp Is it based on a comic? “We didn’t follow anything from the comic books, which people are gonna be mad about,” writer-director Todd Phillips said in the August 2019 issue of Empire magazine. “We just wrote our own version of where a guy like Joker might come from. That’s what was interesting to me. We’re not even doing Joker, but the story of becoming Joker. It’s about this man.” Fans originally speculated the movie’s plot might be influenced by The Killing Joke, a 1988 comic exploring the Joker’s origins written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Brian Bolland. The comics often obscure the Joker’s real identity to maintain his mystical nightmarish, but this comic’s dark and character-based tone has been hugely influential ever since. Is Batman in it? It doesn’t look that way. The movie is not connected to the DC Extended Universe series of movies, so it’s a different version of the Joker than appeared in Suicide Squad. Bruce Wayne will appear, along with his trusty butler Alfred, and Wayne’s ill-fated father, proposing the movie is set before Bruce Wayne was orphaned and set to become Batman. This movie is unconnected to the Gotham TV show, which also recounts the younger days of Bruce Wayne. Gotham will have its own, very different version of the Joker appearing in its upcoming final episode. Who’s making it? Todd Phillips is best known for adult comedies like The Hangover. Scott Silver, who wrote rap movie 8 Mile, is the other scriptwriter. And it’s executive-produced by cinematic legend Martin Scorsese. Joaquin Phoenix movies scene for Joker in Brooklyn in September 2018. Gotham What we know about the plot On April 2, Warner Bros. Gave a presentation at industry events CinemaCon 2019 in Las Vegas that included a first look at some footage. Phillips then added a cryptic message about the movie.   “There’s been a lot of chatter about what this film is and what it is not,” he said. “When the marketing department at Warner asked me the other day to describe the movie, I said ‘I can not.’ They said at least tell us the genre, and I thought about it for a minute and said, ‘It’s a tragedy.'” The first trailer suggests this is an original story for the Joker, whose real name in this version of the story is Arthur. The new video footage shows Arthur in therapy, talking about his mother. “My mother always tells me to smile,” says Arthur in voiceover. “She told me I had a purpose, to bring laughter and joy to the world.” Tags Share your voice Joker: Everything we know (so far) TV and Movies 1:52 When Arthur is attacked in the street, he decides to fight back. “Is it just me, or is it getting crazier out there?” Arthur says. We then see Arthur slowly transforming into the Joker as he tries different clown looks. He goes from a green clown wig to dying his real hair green. Soon he donates to strikes and struts into the world. “I used to think my life was a tragedy,” he says. “But now I realize it’s a comedy.” 0 DC Comics Jokerlast_img read more
