Batman the Killing Joke expands to more theaters, a record for Fathom Events
Fans of Batman and the DC Comics cinematic world should be pretty pumped about the animated adaptation of “Batman: The Killing Joke,” which is set to release later this month. Now they might even get to see in theaters, even if it was sold-out or unavailable beforehand.
The film will be available on Blu-Ray and digital as well from retailers like Amazon.com, which has both the standard and deluxe editions, but you can see it on the big-screen if your local cinema supports Fathom Events. The first run of tickets for the event was a complete sell-out, now more than 300 theater locations have been added for the big-screen debut.
That means that “Batman: The Killing Joke,” will now be showing at over 1,000 U.S. cinemas, and it will be the widest rollout for any event in Fathom Events’ history.
The acclaimed graphic novel-turned-film will be shown for just one night on Monday, July 25, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. local time. This event reunites the foundation of “Batman: The Animated Series” with Bruce Timm returning as executive producer, and actors Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill reprising their seminal roles as Batman and The Joker, respectively.
In addition to the animated feature, audience members will get to experience a special introduction from Hamill, plus a never-before-seen documentary about the actor and his passion for this project. The event also includes a special behind-the-scenes look at how the Joker’s memorable, yet disturbing, song and dance number was recreated for this feature. “Batman: The Killing Joke” is a 2K presentation that has been remastered for this theatrical event.
Tickets for “Batman: The Killing Joke” can be purchased online by visiting FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices. For a complete list of theater locations visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).
