Batman: The Killing Joke Synopsis and Batgirl Revealed

22 May 2016 3:52 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Though DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. have had a little bit of a rocky start to their live action extended universe films, with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice under whelming fans and critics alike and underperforming at the box office, they are miles ahead of the competition with their animated features. For years, DC's animated films have been an excellent representation of their source material and have told stories fans have wanted to see for years, and their latest feature, Batman: The Killing Joke, is taking on one of the most classic comic stories of all time. Not to mention that the film, which will be coming out on Blu Ray this August, will be rated R.

DC and Warner Bros. have just released an official synopsis for the film, as well as a brand new image of Barbara Gordon's Batgirl, who will be voiced by Tara Strong in The Killing Joke. »

God’s Not Dead 2 review: “Plot that panders to its core audience.”

27 April 2016 11:39 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

God’s Not Dead 2 review: Sequel to a surprise hit that is confidently Christian, even if it isn’t very good. God’s Not Dead 2 review

Does a non-believer have any place reviewing an unapologetically Christian movie? It’s a good question, with the result being that God’s Not Dead 2 is critic-proof. Like the big budget blockbusters protected by franchise links, you already know if you’re going to see this. However, I have no bias against films that employ faith or religious aspects. Ben-Hur and The Passion Of The Christ being fantastic pieces of work. What should be an issue, to all moviegoers, is when a film is this unintentionally funny and mawkish. A sequel to the surprise hit, but following a different cast in the lead roles, God’s Not Dead 2 takes a timely subject matter (for the Us at least), and squanders it on a plot »

Thrilling Trailer For Batman: The Killing Joke Released

The trailer for what has to be one of the most anticipated DC animated movies of all time, Batman: The Killing Joke, has finally hit the web and can be viewed at the top.

Based on the classic 1988 graphic novel by the superstar creative team consisting of writer Alan Moore and artist Brian Bolland, The Killing Joke is widely considered to be one of the most definitive examinations of the Batman/Joker dynamic, in addition to being one of the greatest Batman stories to ever be told in the comic book medium. Not only did it feature some shocking imagery causing the book to be recommended for mature readers, but it also provided a detailed origin for The Joker and happened to be the story in which he paralyzed Barbara Gordon.

Speaking of which, viewers can look forward to seeing a prologue of sorts in the animated movie, as the »
