The internet can't unsee the similarities between Joker: Folie a Deux and La La Land, thanks to certain frames. One has the two protagonists doing a ballroom dance on a rooftop at night, with a banner of Hotel Arkham in the background. A user shared that still from the trailer and wrote, “You’ve heard of La La Land, now, get ready for ‘Ga Ga Land’.” Another user called it ‘Ha Ha Land’. “Joker 2 is the La La Land for the people that hear voices,” posted a third one.

“The movie looks like a dark and violent version of la la land, it’s so magical and beautiful while also disturbing, I’m beyond hyped,” shared a fan. Another wrote, “La La Land (2016) for people who stopped taking their psych meds against medical advice.” “Going to tell my kids this is La La Land,” posted another.
