“Batman: Year One” Official Clip – The Dinner Party

The all-new, PG-13 rated film arrives October 18, 2011 from Warner Home Video as a Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD ($19.98 SRP), On Demand and for Download.

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.

Primetime television stars Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Ben McKenzie (Southland, The O.C.), Eliza Dushku (Dollhouse, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica) provide the core voices for Batman: Year One. Three-time Emmy® Award winner Cranston gives voice to young Jim Gordon, while McKenzie makes his animated voiceover debut as Bruce Wayne/Batman. Fanboy favorites Dushku and Sackhoff fill the roles of Selina Kyle/Catwoman and Detective Sarah Essen, respectively. Alex Rocco (The Godfather) is the voice of crime lord Carmine Falcone.

Animation master Bruce Timm is executive producer of Batman: Year One. Directors are Lauren Montgomery (Superman/Batman: Apocalypse) and Sam Liu (All-Star Superman) from a script penned by Academy Award® nominee Tab Murphy (Gorillas in the Mist, Superman/Batman: Apocalypse).

      God, I thought I was the only one who thought that watching it. Smith screwed this scene up for me for life. Sigh…

      Forget about that. How about how they took David Mazzuchelli’s beautifully crafted pages and watered them down to fit in the”Timmiverse”?nnIt’s been 20 years since Batman:TAS, can we move on?nnAlso the guy doing Bruce/Bats sounds like a real wuss.

      • joe bloke

        looks nothing like Bruce Timm.u00a0 at all.

      • D0dg3r

        It’s been longer than 20 years since Batman: Year One and clearly YOU haven’t moved on… any resemblances to B:TAS are probably more for reasons of budget than anything else.nnAnd I don’t know what a “real wuss” sounds like in your neighborhood, but Bats sounded like 50 year old chainsmoker with a head-cold who just staggered out of a bar. Not that I cared for it much.

    Hmnnn….allow me to interject a positive fanboy reaction. Batman Year One is one of my favorite Batman stories and this looks good to me.u00a0

  • The Joker

    Yeah. It does. Take another look.nnIn fact, it looks like ALL the movies DC does.nWhy bother to do a film like this and not be totally faithful to the source material?nnThey said so themselves, “We’re doing this as close as we’re allowed to”. What else can you infer from that?nnYear one is one of my favorite stories too, that’s what I think sucks about it.nn

    If you were a secretive undercover vigilante, using fear as your most effective tool in the same city where you are a rich, famous, and ALOT of people have heard you speak puplicly and not, how would u00a0you disguise your voice?nHolding this book in my hand as i watch it, i cant picture a better representation of this scene without it simply being a lame motion comic.u00a0
