Hollywood actor Joaquin Phoenix's recent release, Joker, is getting the best response from the audience, but the challenges of the American police on this film continue to change. In 2012, when Christopher Nolan's film "The Dark Knight Rises" was released, a man in Colorado fired at the theater.

It was believed that a similar attack could happen in the film Joker which came out after seven years. This is the reason that after analyzing some posts on social media, the US Army issued a safety notice on 18 September.


In this notice of the Army, it was said that there is a possibility that some people of the Insel community may open fire on theaters on the day of the release of the film Joker. Keeping this notice in mind, the US police has banned clown masks and costumes for theater goers. According to the Elamo Drafthouse Cinema Group, parents have been given a warning not to bring their children to the cinema hall.


According to a writers report, the New York, Los Angeles and Chicago police have stated in their statments that "no such threat has been revealed yet about this film, but in spite of this we have engaged some officers with those film theaters but we are keeping a close watch, where this film is being screened. Apart from this, police officers will also be present inside the cinema hall in plain clothes".
