Warner Home Video has been nice enough to share the first clip from the upcoming Batman:Year One set to release on Blu-ray, DVD, On Demand and for download on October 18th.
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.
Batman:Year One stars Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad”) as a Young Jim Gordon, Ben McKenzie (“Southland,” “The O.C.”) as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Eliza Dushku (“Dollhouse,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) as Catwoman and Katee Sackhoff (“Battlestar Galactica”) as Detective Sarah Essen. Alex Rocco (The Godfather) is the voice of crime lord Carmine Falcone.
Animation master Bruce Timm is executive producer of Batman: Year One. Lauren Montgomery (Superman/Batman: Apocalypse) and Sam Liu (All-Star Superman) directed from a script penned by Academy Award nominee Tab Murphy (Gorillas in the Mist, Superman/Batman: Apocalypse).
