Joker and Harley Quinn have appeared by each other’s side in several movies and TV shows, but their next trip around the sun will be unlike any other. The first trailer for Joker: Folie à Deux is here, and it sees Joaquin Phoenix and Lady Gaga dancing like there’s no tomorrow.

The term “folie à deux” can be translated as “shared madness” and it perfectly describes the relationship between this notorious villain power couple. The new trailer sees Arthur Fleck and Harley Quinn catching each other’s eye during their time at Arkham Asylum, and finding themselves caught in a dangerous dance that could either destroy them—or set them free.

The first promo clip also makes it clear that Joker: Folie à Deux will feature many musical elements. It’s set to the beat of “What the World Needs Now (Is Love Sweet Love)”, but the film will feature at least 15 renditions of well-known songs that fit its theme, according to Variety’s recent report.

Joaquin Phoenix and Lady Gaga will be joined by Brendan Gleeson, Catherine Keener, Jacob Lofland, Steve Coogan, Ken Leung, Harry Lawtey, and Zazie Beetz in supporting roles. We’ll get to witness their wild dance on October 4, when Joker: Folie à Deux will be released theatrically by Warner Bros.
