Batman:Year One

Batman: Year One is a 2011 animated superhero film based on the four-issue story arc Batman: Year One printed in 1987.

It dropped in stores in DVD and Blu Ray on October 18th

The film stars Bryan Cranston, Ben McKenzie and Eliza Dushku.

Batman: Year One follows Lt. James Gordon arriving in Gotham City after an unfortunate career-derailing incident in Chicago where he turned in a corrupt cop. Gordon is already defeated and cynical, and he sees his stint in Gotham as being condemned to hell on Earth. But he’s still determined to be a good cop, and not to join in the corruption around him. Meanwhile, a young Bruce Wayne comes back to Gotham after years away and is determined to do something about the criminal elites that killed his parents.

It follows both characters over the course of a year — Bruce Wayne trying to fight crime in a simpler disguise, before hitting on the Batman identity, and then getting hunted by the cops. And Gordon, becoming a father, while getting more and more at odds with the corrupt cops, including the Police Commissioner. Wayne has a mission, that he pursues single-mindedly, but life for Gordon is much more complex — he wants to do the right thing by his wife and kid, and he already knows what happens to cops who turn against their own.

Here is the trailer for Batman:Year One

  1. I liked this post even before viewing the video…the dark knight detective just getting started. Animation from what I can view looks good. They even through in a Catwoman short, nice.

  2. Yeah I know. I am really looking forward to seeing it. I should have the Blu-Ray by this weekend.


  3. on a related note, I just saw on the local news that they are shooting some scenes from Dark Knight Rising in NYC. Of course it is down the street from the Occupy protesters are but man how exciting is that?

  4. Yeah that’s pretty cool. If they were shooting here, I’d be down there everyday.
