Batman Year One Movie

Holy Ultra HD Batman! Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is celebrating the 10th anniversary of DC Universe Movies by releasing BATMAN: YEAR ONE remastered in 4K Ultra High Definition. Produced by a collaboration of DC Comics and Warner Bros. Animation, the 4K edition of Batman: Year One will be available to purchase in disc and digital formats beginning November 9, 2021.

Originally released on Blu-ray and DVD in 2011, Batman: Year One is based on a 1987 DC comic book story run from 12-time Eisner Award winner and Eisner Award Hall of Fame member Frank Miller and illustrator David Mazzucchelli. The animated flick depicts young Bruce Wayne’s return to Gotham City in his first attempts to fight injustice as a costumed Super Hero. 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 City.

Batman: Year One has an extraordinary cast voicing the animated film's characters. Six-time Emmy® Award winner Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad, Trumbo, Your Honor) and Gotham star Ben McKenzie (Southland, The O.C.) lead a star-studded cast as Lieutenant James Gordon and Bruce Wayne/Batman, respectively. Eliza Dushku (Dollhouse, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) provides the voice of Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Katee Sackhoff (The Mandalorian, Battlestar Galactica) gives voice to Detective Sarah Essen, and the late Alex Rocco (The Godfather) is the voice of crime lord Carmine Falcone. Additional voices/characters include the late Jon Polito as Commissioner Loeb, Jeff Bennettas as Alfred, Grey Griffin as Barbara Gordon & Vicki Vale, Robin Atkin Downes as Harvey Dent, Keith Ferguson as Jefferson Skeevers, Fred Tatasciore as Detective Flass, Stephen Root as Brendon, LilianaMumy as Holly and Nick Jameson as Merkel.

Batman: Year One is rated PG-13 for cartoon violence. DC Universe Movies may be cartoons but that doesn't mean they are aimed for children. These movies provide true to the pages of comic book adaptions of some of DC's most acclaimed superhero stories meant for older audiences of teens and adults. If only Warner Bros. live action films could be as good as these direct-to-video animated movies. I for one am going to be geeked to see Batman: Year One in 4K!
