I will never understand why the DCU doesn’t release some of their animated films into the theater, at least for limited engagements. I mean usually their stuff blows away a lot of the major studio releases. Looks like they are going to test the waters this summer with a one time showing Batman: The Killing Joke.
One of the most eagerly anticipated Superhero films of the year, for comic book fans, isn’t coming out in theaters, it’s coming on Blu-ray in Aug, however some lucky fans will get to see one of the most controversial comic books EVER, Batman: The Killing Joke a little bit earliar. Continuing a decade-long tradition, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) will host the World Premiere of its latest DC Universe Original Movie at SDCC. The premiere will be held Friday, July 22, 2016. This is the year I’ll finally get to meet the great Mark Hamill! Woot!
Everyone knows what a mark I am for the DCU Animated Universe. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is distributing (as Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD) “Batman Unlimited: Monster Mayhem” on August 18, and “LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes – Justice League: Attack of the Legion of Doom” on August 25. Both films are now available via Digital HD.
