Set in the 1980s, the film has already sparked awards buzz for Phoenix’s performance, as the film tells the story of Arthur Fleck, a man so down on his luck he becomes a murderous psychopath hellbent on causing havoc in Gotham.
Another film boosted by Hollywood star power is Ad Astra, which stars Brad Pitt as an astronaut who journeys into space to find his lost father, played by Tommy Lee Jones.
The film is directed by James Gray, who has competed for the Palm d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival on several occasions, including his 2013 film The Immigrant.
The Laundromat – directed by Steven Soderbergh and the first of Netflix’s Venice contenders – also makes its debut, starring Meryl Streep, Gary Oldman and Antonio Banderas, and recalls the infamous Panama Papers scandal.

Marriage Story – which stars Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver – will also compete for the Golden Lion, and tells the story of a couples’ gruelling divorce. The film is also being distributed by Netflix.
Competing out of competition is the Shakespeare adaptation and Netflix release The King, directed by David Michôd and starring Call Me By Your Name favourite Timothée Chalamet as King Henry V.
The festival has also courted controversy by opting to screen the latest work from director Roman Polanski, who fled the US after facing historical sexual abuse charges, and has been expelled by the Oscars Academy.
Polanski will presenter An Officer And A Spy – or J’Accuse in French – which centres on the infamous 19th Century Dreyfuss affair and stars Oscar winner Jean Dujardin.
