Third BATMAN: YEAR ONE film clip
A third clip from the animated film Batman: Year One has arrived online. I saw this at Comic-Con and was not initially blown away. It might have been because the screening was a later screening after a long day. The more I watch of these clips, the more I like it. I am still not in love with the film, but it is decent.
Batman: Year One is based on the landmark 1987 DC Comics titles from 12-time Eisner Award winner Frank Miller and illustrator David Mazzucchelli. The film depicts young Bruce Wayne’s return to Gotham City in his first attempts to fight injustice as a costumed vigilante. The playboy billionaire chooses the guise of a giant bat to combat crime, creates an early bond with a young Lieutenant James Gordon (who is already battling corruption from inside the police department), inadvertently plays a role in the birth of Catwoman, and helps to bring down a crooked political system that infests Gotham.
The movie has the voices of Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Ben McKenzie (Southland, The O.C.), Eliza Dushku(Dollhouse, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica) and Alex Rocco (The Godfather) is the voice of crime lord Carmine Falcone.
Bruce Timm is executive producer of the film. Lauren Montgomery (Superman/Batman: Apocalypse) and Sam Liu (All-Star Superman) directed from a script penned by Academy Award nominee Tab Murphy (Gorillas in the Mist, Superman/Batman: Apocalypse).
The film is coming to Blu-ray, DVD, On Demand and for Download on October 18th. There is also an opportunity to download-for-purchase in an early window starting October 11th through iTunes, Xbox Live, Zune, VUDU HD Movies and Video Unlimitedon the PlayStation Network & Sony Entertainment Network.
