Batman-The-Killing-Joke-Animated-Movie-Poster-640x960The long-awaited movie adaption of Batman: The Killing Joke will be available to own starting August 2, but there’s good news for anyone jonesing for it earlier: it will be released in theatres across America!

There’s a catch though. It’s a limited release and it’s for one night only.

On Monday, July 25th, select theatres will screen the film at 7:30pm and again at 10:00 (local time). Tickets will be available for purchase on June 17th on Fathom Events.

In addition to the early screening, the one-night film event will include a special introduction from Mark Hamill and never-before-seen documentary about what it means to Hamill as an actor and fan. The event will end with a special behind-the-scenes look at how the Joker’s memorably disturbing song and dance number was recreated for the film.

Batman: The Killing Joke stars Mark Hamill as the Joker, Kevin Conroy as Batman, Tara Strong as Barbara Gordon, and Ray Wise as Commissioner Gordon and will be an R-rated feature.

You can check out the Fathom Events page to see if Batman: The Killing Joke will be playing in a threatre near you. If you miss your chance, the worldwide blu-ray release is scheduled for August 2nd.

I read, I write, I play videogames, Ghostbusters is my favourite thing in the known universe, but quasars come in at a close second. I've been known to cry at the drop of a hat over happy and sad things alike. I've also been known to fly into a rage if things don't go my way, leading to many a fight in high school and breaking someone's nose on the TTC one time. I'm an anxious introvert but also a loud-mouthed bad influence. Especially on my cat. He learned it from watching me, okay!
