"Batman 25th Anniversar​y Two-Disc Edition" Press Announce!

Celebrating 75 Years of Caped Crusader Entertainment…
Batman 25th Anniversary Edition
Debuts November 11
in New Diamond Luxe Packaging

Burbank, Calif., August 14, 2014 – To help mark Warner Bros. Entertainment (WBE) and DC Entertainment’s milestone 75th anniversary of DC Comics’ popular Batman character, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) will release Batman 25th Anniversary Two-Disc Edition, a new Blu-ray™ edition debuting November 11 (at $24.98 SRP) in the studio’s distinctive new sleek Diamond Luxe collector-style packaging. With its state-of-the-art sophisticated and durable design, the new packaging is perfect for those wishing to add this edition to their home libraries. Also included is Batman: The Birth of the Modern Blockbuster -- a look at the phenomenal marketing, extensive merchandising and franchise foresight that set the template for the next 25 years of tentpole pictures.

WBHE and DCE’s year-long celebration, befitting the world’s most popular Super Hero, will boast new products from WBE and DC Entertainment in numerous areas – comics, TV, Interactive Entertainment, Consumer Products and more. There is a new commemorative 75th anniversary Batman logo and an exclusive “Cape/Cowl/Create” art exhibit, featuring 20 contemporary artists’ interpretations of The Dark Knight’s iconic cowl headpiece and cape from the new Batman: Arkham Knight video game. Various other events are taking place throughout the year.

In addition to releasing Batman 25th Anniversary Two-Disc Edition, WBHE will also feature the highly anticipated release of the 1960s Batman: The Complete Television Series for the first time ever. Other new home entertainment releases include animated films Son of Batman and Batman: Assault on Arkham.

Lastly, as Batman’s 75th anniversary is celebrated this year, Warner Bros. Pictures has begun production of Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice starring Henry Cavill, who reprises his role as Superman/Clark Kent, Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne and Gal Gadot as Diane Prince/Wonder Woman. The film, slated for release summer 2016, will bring the most iconic Super Heroes of all time together for the first time on the big screen.

In announcing the Batman 75th anniversary initiative in March, WB Chairman and Chief Executive Kevin Tsujihara noted, “Batman is an incredibly important property with multi-generational appeal across all of the Studio’s businesses, and we’re proud to celebrate this milestone anniversary. From billion-dollar blockbuster films to TV, home entertainment, video games and consumer products, The Dark Knight continues to resonate with audiences worldwide and rightfully deserves his place as a global pop culture icon for the ages.”

About the Movie

In 1989, director Tim Burton breathed new life into one of the most complex and intriguing characters in popular culture. Burton cast off the 1960s camp depiction of the Dark Knight and launched for Warner Bros. one of the most popular comic book film series ever. Batman was the top-grossing movie that year and subsequently became a global phenomenon.

Tim Burton’s vision and Michael Keaton’s performance as the Caped Crusader combine perfectly to capture Gotham City’s sinister atmosphere and Batman’s brooding nature. Jack Nicholson stars in a memorable performance as the maniacal Joker and Kim Basinger is Vicki Vale, the beautiful and resourceful photojournalist desired by both men. Featuring songs by Prince and a score by Danny Elfman, Batman won the 1990 Oscar® for Best Art Direction/Set Decoration (Anton Furst and Peter Young).

Disney Tarzan Blu-Ray 
 


Synopsis: Disney's legendary adventure is better than ever as TARZAN bursts onto Blu-ray for the first time ever with spectacular picture and amazing sound. Filled with thrills, laughs, and Academy Award(R)-winning music (Best Music, Original Song, "You'll Be In My Heart," 1999), this family favorite will make you go wild. Disney's magnificent adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' story begins deep within the jungle when baby Tarzan is adopted by a family of gorillas. But his "Two Worlds" collide with the arrival of humans, forcing Tarzan to choose between a "civilized" life with the beautiful Jane and the life he shares with his fun-loving friends and his gorilla family. Enjoy this wild and wonderful adventure in a whole new way on Disney Blu-ray!

Review:  I remember when Tarzan hit theaters back in the day.  My wife and I loved it then and we love it now.  Its such a joy to share this one with our kids, and in high-definition no less!   The film has never looked better, literally.  The color really pops, the sound is amazing and the movie still holds up as being delightful and fun.  This one is a no brainer...everyone MUST own!

Interest Range: Kids, Animation, Disney

Remembering Robin Williams, The Batman Star That Never Was

You may have heard by now the sad news that actor Robin Williams, age 63, was found dead today.  We'd like to take a moment to remember this iconic actor in our own way.  The Batman way.  

When Tim Burton brought Batman to the big screen in 1989 its said that Williams was being considered for the role of the Joker, before Jack Nicholson agreed to take the role.  Michael Uslan had famously wanted Nicholson since he saw him back in the 1970s in films like 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest'.   

Later, when Batman Forever was brought to the big screen they were looking at Robin Williams as what many at the time thought as a shoe-in role for the Riddler.  Of course we know that Burton and Keaton left the project and when Schumacher came in he was looking at a new, hipper talent for the role..Jim Carey.

Robin Williams was public about wanting to be involved in the Dark Knight, and those that have seen him in his more serious and darker roles in the past decade could maybe see how he could bring a serious creepiness to a Joker role.  Of course, Nolan went with Ledger, who also tragically passed.  Robin Williams had told IGN this at the time:

“Well, you want to do a different Joker. You know, if they do Arkham Asylum, it would be amazing. Arkham Asylum is one of the greatest, nastiest comic books ever. It’s truly, it’s like the Marquee de Sade on that level, and wonderfully damaged and quite tragic, in terms of when you realize [what happened to] create these characters.”

Robin Williams gave it one more shot for the Dark Knight Rises when he spoke to Empire Magazine:

"Years ago they offered me The Joker and then gave it to Jack Nicholson, then they offered me The Riddler and gave it to Jim Carrey. I’d be like, “Okay, is this a real offer? If it is, then the answer’s yes. Don’t pump me again, motherfuckers.”

“I’m using this article as an ad. Chris, call me, I’ll do anything. I could be a great character — or some weird little man in the background in Arkham Asylum.”

REVIEW: Batman: Assault on Arkham is Bad.....BAD ASS!


You can pre-order this film on Amazon.com

Yeah, I said it. I'm obviously a lifelong Batman fan, especially in the realm of animation.  I'm very critical of the Dc Universe films..they're very hit and miss for  me.   This film is without a doubt my favorite of the Dc Universe films to date.  Assault on Arkham has it all..violence, sex, humor and dark twisted enjoyment for all.  This one is what 'The Losers' should have been.  Its like the Expendables with Dc Comics villains.  Top all that off with tons of villain cameos and Kevin Conroy reprising Batman, the role that he owns, and you have an absolute winner.



This review will contain some, but not all, SPOILERS!  I'm not going to give you the plot points, but don't read if you don't want a few things revealed, I don't wanna have to call you a waaaaahmbulance.  

The Hero Cameos

We get a few cool hero cameos in this film.  We get a quick Gordon and a very brief Alfred appearance.   The Batmobile and the Batplane will both appear, as well.



The Villain Cameos

The brief, but fantastic, appearance of the Penguin took me by surprise.  Not that I didn't expect him to be in the film, but the entire way that he was presented was unique.  Firstly, he has a gritty british accent, like something out of a Guy Ritchie UK gangster flick.  The weird thing is that it really, really works for him.  Deadshot and the squad give him a lot of respect as a senior criminal in Gotham and you really get a genuine sense that he's a person you don't want to mess with.  Its a dignity that the Penguin doesn't often recieve these days. 



During the Arkham sequence you will get to see other villains, like Poison Ivy, Bane, Scarecrow, Two-Face and even Mr. Zsasz!  And you get to see them in ACTION.  There are also references to Scarface, Killer Moth, Mr. Freeze,Firefly and Maxie Zeus at one point.


The Joker is also a major part of this film.  Once he finally appears, he is the apex for the rest of the story arc.  The voicework by Troy Baker is so great I almost don't miss Mark Hammill!  Hey, I said almost!  You know Baker's work from some of the Arkham and Lego Batman video games.  He's dead-on and although the "Arkham" look for the Joker doesn't immediately strike me as great, it did grow on me as the film progressed.

 The Suicide Squad

Throughout this film you really get attached to the Squad, especially members like the Shark, a villain that wasn't even on my radar prior to this.  Shark is voiced by John DiMaggio, who is a phenominal voice actor and ironically a great Joker in previous Dc Universe films.  Deadshot is masterfully portrayed by Neal McDonough.  He adds an authority and confidence to the character that I've never had the pleasure of seeing before.  He is a huge part of the movie and really shines.  Killer Frost is sexy and brutal.  She is just great.  Harley Quinn is sexy and insane.  Its not often that I refer to animated characters as sexy, but I will in this case.  Hynden Walch came back to the role of Harley, which she had done so well previously in the animated series 'The Batman'.    She really brings life and so much dark humor to the role that I literally laughed out loud several times.


That brings me to the most important thing that ties this film together.  The tone.  This film is taken very seriously by the creators.  The action is there, the comedy is there, the character development is there, the plot twists are there..it has sex, it has intrigue..it has it all.  I haven't been this excited about an animated film in a long time.  They do such a great job of making you like and care about the Squad that the first time you see Shark he is literally eating human beings and is covered in blood and by the end of the film, you're rooting for him.  Thats quality writing.


I cannot recommend this enough.  Watch this film, don't delay.  On Tuesday BUY it.
