Batman Gotham Knight Preview Clips

Batman Gotham Knight is an anthology of short animated Batman movies that propose to fill the gap between Batman begins and the Dark Knight. Previews clips of Batman Gotham Knight are now available. If you are dying from impatience to see the Dark Knight then this animated version of the hero of Gotham City which should be released next week may help you to survive.

Here below Batman Gotham Knight Preview Clips:

Jonathan Crane aka the Scarecrow, it has to be.

Batman vs Scarecrow


Like Shoukei said (here), the dark profile of Batman is more outstanding in Batman Gotham Knight. It makes the direct-to-DVD release movie even more appealing!

Batman Gotham Knight Official Trailer

The official trailer of Batman Gotham knight is now available .

Here below batman Gotham Knight trailer:

Judging from this trailer I think that Batman Gotham does much more than filling a gap between Batman Begins and the Dark Knight. Looks like we are going a well developed plot with deep-rooted characters!

Oh my God! I'm all in the Batman craze now!

I understand better why Gotham Knight is manga like: Japanese directors are well represented. But I'm assured by the American scriptwriters.

I'm quite confident that Batman Gotham City is going to be awesome: it will be a really nice warm up before the Dark Knight.

Batman Gotham knight Featurette

A featurette clip has been released for Batman Gotham Knight.

This clip is really interesting. Not only it gives a better understanding of the characters who will show up in the movie but it also gives us a glimpse of footage yet unseen of Batman Gotham Knight.

I really like the mix between the Japanese manga way of doing things and the American tradition of Comic books.

Batman Gotham City is going to be a marvelous animated movie!

Batman Gotham Knight in July 2008

You probably know that the Dark Knight, a sequel to Batman Begins, will be released on July 18, 2008. But you may not know that an animated Batman film will also be released ten days before! The title of this animated movie is 'Batman: Gotham Knight'.

Batman: Gotham KnightUnfortunately Batman Gotham Knight will not be screened in your favorite theater: Warner Bros. and DC Comics have opted for a straight-to-DVD release of this new Batman movie.

Batman Gotham Knight is set in-between Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. The film is actually an anthology of six animated short films. For each film a different team of Directors and scriptwriters. Such a collaboration between different teams creates a unique Batman experience.

The film uses a Japanese anime style for the animation. This link to mangas is similar to another tie-in, The Animatrix, as both are collections of short films of Japanese origin.

Batman Gotham City is officially rated PG-13 because of its stylized violence, including some bloody scenes (Too bad though that they didn't work on a restricted version of the movie...).

Well, I will buy the DVD of Batman Gotham Knight for sure. But I would have loved to see it in theaters...
