Michael Keaton’s run as the caped crusader still holds up after all these years, and starting November 11 you’ll get to revisit his work with the Batman 25th Anniversary Two-Disc Edition Blu-ray. The picture proved to be a turning point in both Keaton and Tim Burton’s careers, enabling them to carve out successful careers in showbiz (Keaton’s manic energy, coupled with his experience of playing a superhero, are all in play for the highly anticipated feature Birdman). Burton’s next feature Big Eyes comes out later this year.
The two-disc set comes with what Warner Brothers Home Entertainment describes as “distinctive new sleek Diamond Luxe collector-style packaging.” A new special feature, Batman: The Birth of the Modern Blockbuster, takes a look at how Batman blazed the trail for 25 years worth of Caped Crusader success.
On our sister site Hollywood Outbreak, Michael Keaton explained why he envisioned the longevity of the Batman franchise and why he felt Batman Returns would even be better than Batman. Check out the story at this following link.
