  2. TRNT + WANRER BROS. UNVEIL SPECIAL JOKER TRAILER FEATURING "BARREL OF A GUN" Shortly after the release of TRNT's new single "Barrel of a Gun", it was announced that the song would be featured in the marketing for the new film Joker. As most people know, the marketing machine increases greatly once a film has been released, arguably launching more aggressive promotional campaigns than pre-release. And that is certainly true of the controversial new film from writer director Tod Philipps. Joker is a 2019 American psychological thriller film directed by Todd Phillips, who co-wrote the screenplay with Scott Silver. The film, based on DC Comics characters, stars Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker. An origin story set in 1981, the film follows Arthur Fleck, a failed stand-up comedian who turns to a life of crime and chaos in Gotham City. Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Bill Camp, Shea Whigham, and Marc Maron appear in supporting roles. Joker was produced by Warner Bros. Pictures, DC Films, Bron Studios and Village Roadshow Pictures, and distributed by Warner Bros. The themes of the film and the song have many connections, mainly that of a central character with various mental problems who turn to violent and disturbing means to put themselves out of their own misery. TRNT said "Todd gave my a copy of the script and I was amazed at just how closely related the character of my story and the character of his story were. Here we have these two deeply troubled individuals who have been completely casted out of society due to their problems. They're in pain, locked in the hell of their own minds. They're called freaks. And it all gets to be too much. They break and they turn to violence as a result. It's really remarkable how the two characters who written very far away from each other really converge as much as they do. Todd and I both knew that this song and this film were destined to be together. We decided it was best to not include it in the film, but keep it on the film's perimeter. And I think that honestly makes the partnership even more effective." The special trailer will be shown in iMAX theaters across the United States, online, in theaters across Europe and Australia, and is available for viewing on the film's official website as well as TRNT's. The trailer prominently features the song and at the conclusion, the song's download and streaming information are visible on the bottom of the screen below the film's title.
  4. ANNOUNCER: "Thank you for joining us this evening. To close our show, her big return to the stage, please welcome CASSIE!" After being announced the camera pans to the stage. There’s a large rectangular platform on the stage where you can see the silhouettes of Cassie and some dancers. The stage is lit with neon lights across the edges of the stage and platform with a sky blue color. There are some male dancers on the sides of the platform dressed as guards in the future and their batons are neon sticks. The set is supposed to give off a futuristic aesthetic. The instrumental for “CASSIE” begins to play and then the stage lights up to show Cassie and two male guards to each of her side. As she begins to get into the first verse she hits a strong stance as she sings into her hands free micset and does some motions with her hands to match the lyrics. Some females dancers in several different shades of black then begin to march onto the stage with their neon batons resting on their shoulders once it’s time for the pre-chorus. They then turn to face the crowd and begin to do a baton routine as she continues to sing. Towards the end of the pre-chorus she steps down off of the platform and is thrown a baton and joins them in performing a synchronized baton routine as she delivers a stellar vocal performance with amazing breath control to the chorus. She then hands her baton to one of the male dancer guards and she goes into a squatting position to begin twerking to the post-chorus as they all slightly hype her up. As she gets into the second verse she begins to assertively stand up and begin to walk towards the front of the stage and is followed by the guard. Cassie then stops and looks at the guard and caresses his cheek and his knees begin to buckle because he is just fascinated by her. Halfway through the verse she grabs his baton and gently slides her hand down it before grabbing it. She then strikes a pose as he moves off to the side and she is joined by her female dancers. She points the baton out to the crowd as she sings, “everyday i meet the quota” very aggressively. They then get into the baton choreography while she sings the chorus before strutting her way back towards the platform halfway through the chorus. Cassie then turns and faces the crowd on top of the platform as she begins drop low into a squatting position and swivel her hips as she points the baton in the air while singing the post chorus and they all end the performance standing up straight in a military type of stance as the instrumental draws out and some sky blue sparks go off.
