The news that Joker: Madness for Two would be partially a musical film raised many questions, to which the composer answered.
Expected at the turn in 2019, the film by Todd Phillips nevertheless broke a historic record, to say the least, and surpassed $1 billion at the box office despite its R classification in the United States (i.e., prohibited for children under 17 not accompanied by an adult). And if this tremendous global profitability (estimated at 2,037%) were not enough, the radical Joker also received remarkable critical acclaim, winning two Golden Globes and two Oscars.

The film’s composer, Hildur Guðnadottir nevertheless insisted on defending this narrative commitment at the microphone of varietyarguing that despite its improbability, the concept was not so incongruous for all that:
“It’s an interesting decision. I think it will be very exciting to see how this plays out. I also think there’s a certain logic to it. It’s both very logical and very surprising. , whether for me or for the audience. But so far, it’s been an admirable discussion, and I’m really looking forward to seeing what comes of it.”
