The Dark Knight Returns Trailer

Part One

The trailer for the all-new DC Universe animated original movie "Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1" has arrived and MTV has it posted. 

The Peter Weller stars as the aged Caped Crusader in this adaptation of Frank Miller's iconic graphic novel. In "Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, pt. 1":

...it’s been a decade since Bruce Wayne hung up his cape, following most of the other superheroes who had been forced into retirement. Facing the downside of middle age, a restless Bruce Wayne pacifies his frustration with race cars and liquor – but the bat still beckons as he watches his city fall prey to gangs of barbaric criminals known as The Mutants.

The return of Harvey Dent as Two-Face finally prompts Wayne to once again don the Dark Knight’s cowl, and his dramatic capture of the villain returns him to crime-fighting – simultaneously making him the target of law enforcement and the new hope for a desolate Gotham City. Particularly inspired is a teenage girl named Carrie, who adopts the persona of Robin and ultimately saves Batman from a brutal attack by the Mutant leader. Armed with a new sidekick, and re-energized with a definitive purpose, the Dark Knight returns to protect Gotham from foes new...and old.

Joining Weller is David Selby as Commissioner Gordon, Ariel Winter as Robin, Wade Williams as Two-Face and Michael McKean as Dr. Bartholomew Wolper. The film is directed by Jay Oliva, written by Bob Goodman and executive produced by Sam Register and the legendary Bruce Timm.

"Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1" hits Blu-ray Combo Pack & DVD and download on September 25, 2012 from Warner Home Video.

Thanks to Lex0807 for the submission.

No Darth, as I mentionned in the Hobbit trilogy comment board, this will be the ongoing Hollywood trend.

Splitting movies in parts for more cash! Two blu-rays at the cost of $25 a piece is $50 for a 3 hour animated movie. That stings considering you can buy TV box sets for that price and 3 hour movies are released on one disc for $25 (like say the release of TDKR in the fall)

Not that I mind for Dark Knight Returns. I'm actually happy they are not cramming the whole series in one 75 minute movie. Times two and that's a 150 minute adaptation of one of the best Batman stories ever. That's the same running time as Dark Knight Rises but at least we will get to see more of Batman in this one.

It's awesome to be reminded of how much Nolan took from this work to make his Batman Universe (the ultra military Bamobile, the Bane take on the Mutant gang uprising, the "retirement." etc.)   While I've no issue on Nolan's reimagining, I like seeing the original work getting some of its just due.  While a live action piece is probably out of the question, I would have preferred to see a CGI/contemporary animation take on it, however. The standard cell art approach fails to really bring out the graphic guts of Miller's landmark piece.

No doubt it will be 100% better than that sham of a movie TDKR!

 @EIBaz13 - Yeah, your rite, so long as they do the REAL story, lol....Is this the 1st time an American Animation movie is being done in 2 parts??? That would be a piece of history..eh??

 @My fellow Sith - BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

I agree with you, Sir!!!!

Wow... this is going to be frakking huge!!!

Based on the preview, I'm guessing part 1 will be issues 1 and 2 and part 3 and 4 will be part 2 (with Supes, Joker)

Does anyone else here get annoyed when movies are advertised as "the best selling graphic novels" when essentially they were comic books first? They did it for Watchmen and I think Kick-Ass. I don't know, maybe to the movie studios, it sounds so much cooler saying "graphic novel" and try to attract the non comic fans by saying it's based on a "book".
