Movie Trailers


The Dark Knight Returns Yeah, you’ve read that correctly – this is the trailer for The Dark Knight Returns, an animated adaptation of Frank Miller‘s 1986 Batman graphic novel, that changed the direction of the character and inspired Christopher Nolan’s vision of the hero. This first part of Warners’ direct-to-disc (and digital) adaptation of Miller’s story focuses on Batman’s ten-years leave of absence. A new breed of criminal ravages Gotham City, forcing 55-year-old Bruce Wayne back into the cape and cowl. But, does he still have what it takes to fight crime in a new era? The Dark Knight Returns is a much wilder story than its predecessors, and while this trailer suggests the film is playing pretty close to the graphic novel, maybe we’ll get lucky and there will be a few things that push it out of simple “motion comics” territory. I also like the idea of Robin being a girl. Take a look: The Dark Knight Returns Part 1 will be available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download on September 25th. Jay Oliva directed from a script by Bob Goodman, and the animated film stars voices of Ariel Winter, Peter Weller and Wade Williams. Synopsis:
It’s been a decade since Bruce Wayne hung up his cape, following most of the other superheroes who had been forced into retirement. Facing the downside of middle age, a restless Bruce Wayne pacifies his frustration with race cars and liquor – but the bat still beckons as he watches his city fall prey to gangs of barbaric criminals known as The Mutants. The return of Harvey Dent as Two-Face finally prompts Wayne to once again don the Dark Knight’s cowl, and his dramatic capture of the villain returns him to crime-fighting – simultaneously making him the target of law enforcement and the new hope for a desolate Gotham City. Particularly inspired is a teenage girl named Carrie, who adopts the persona of Robin and ultimately saves Batman from a brutal attack by the Mutant leader. Armed with a new sidekick, and re-energized with a definitive purpose, the Dark Knight returns to protect Gotham from foes new… and old.
