Joker is unsettling for little kids..be warned.
Whether "Joker" is as controversial as all the hype suggests or not, one things is clear: It's not for kids. And one theater chain is trying to drive that point home to parents.
The Alamo Drafthouse posted a message on Facebook saying, quote, "Parental warning (this is not a joke). 'Joker' is Rated R and for good reason. There's lots of very, very rough language, brutal violence, and overall bad vibes.
"It's a gritty, dark, and realistic 'Taxi Driver'-esque depiction of one man's descent into madness. It's not for kids, and they won't like it, anyway. There's no Batman."
