BATMAN: YEAR ONE Animated Movie - Clip #2
Warner Bros. has released a second new film clip for their upcoming animated movie Batman: Year One. I was expecting a lot more from this film. I saw it up at Comic-Con and I was mostly disappointed with the voice work, which doesn't make sense because it had a great cast. Just bad direction I guess. The animation on the other was pretty awesome.
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 starred 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 Unlimited on the PlayStation Network & Sony Entertainment Network.
