Bottleneck Gallery To Release 1989 Batman & Batman Returns Teaser Posters On October 5

In honor of New York Comic Con this week, Bottleneck Gallery celebrates two of the biggest movie events of all time, Tim Burton’s Batman, and the sequel, Batman Returns.

The Bat logo was ubiquitous in 1989 and teaser posters for Tim Burton’s Batman movie reignited mass public interest in the fictional city of Gotham, and introduced the world to the first modern superhero movie. Batman and Batman Returns remain cinema milestones, and Bottleneck Gallery is excited to release officially licensed screen prints of the original teaser posters for both movies.

The online sale for both prints will be on Saturday, October 5, 2019, at 12PM ET. Prints will be available HERE.

DC & Warner Bros. Celebrate Batman’s 80th Anniversary, Fathom Events Brings Four Heroic Adventures Back To The Big Screen This May

This May, only in movie theaters nationwide, “Batman” returns …  followed by “Batman Returns,” plus “Batman Forever” and “Batman & Robin.” All four blockbuster cinematic adventures are coming back to movie theaters as Fathom Events presents a can’t-miss “Batman” movie event in honor of DC’s Batman 80th anniversary.

Each “Batman” film will play one day only in more than 600 movie theaters nationwide, beginning with director Tim Burton’s visionary “Batman,” a film whose unprecedented success and acclaim helped propel superhero movies that continue to reign supreme at the box office.

The schedule for this Caped Crusader cinematic celebration is:

“Batman” (1989) – Saturday, May 4, 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. (all times are local)

“Batman,” starring Jack Nicholson as The Joker, Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne/Batman, and Kim Basinger as Vicki Vale, also marks its 30th anniversary, making this Fathom Events presentation a dual celebration for fans. The top-grossing film of 1989 led to three sequels, all of which are part of the series.

“Batman Returns” (1992) – Monday, May 6, 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.

In “Batman Returns,” both Keaton and Burton are back, along with Danny DeVito as The Penguin, Michelle Pfeiffer as Selina Kyle/Catwoman and Christopher Walken as Max Schreck in a film equally hailed as the first for its eye-popping visual flair and riveting performances.

“Batman Forever” (1995) – Sunday, May 12, 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.

Val Kilmer dons the Batsuit in 1995’s “Batman Forever,” along with an all-star cast that includes Tommy Lee Jones as Two-Face, Jim Carrey as The Riddler, Nicole Kidman as Dr. Chase Meridian, Chris O’Donnell as Dick Grayson/Robin, and Drew Barrymore as Sugar.

“Batman & Robin” (1997) – Tuesday, May 14, 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.

In 1997’s “Batman & Robin,” George Clooney is the Caped Crusader and O’Donnell is back as Robin, alongside such indelible performers as Arnold Schwarzenegger playing Mr. Freeze, Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy, and Alicia Silverstone as Barbara Wilson/Batgirl.

Tickets to each of the four “Batman” films are available HERE or at participating theater box offices.

Dark Hall Mansion To Release Batman Returns Prints By Yuko Shimizu On May 31, 2016

Dark Hall Mansion is pleased to welcome leading contemporary artist, Yuko Shimizu, on for DHM’s latest officially licensed limited edition print release, “Batman Returns,” in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products on behalf of DC Entertainment and available this coming Tuesday, May 31st!

Dark Hall Mansion has had this project in development with Yuko for quite some time so it’s most gratifying to finally be able to share her unique vision with fans. From the varied Batman films DHM offered it was “Batman Returns” that most appealed to Yuko as illustrator along with colleague, Claudia de Almeida, on as designer. Yuko’s two striking individual prints offer a standard edition piece reflecting not only Gotham’s protagonists but its topsy-turvy, almost surreal world, along with Yuko’s striking variant edition which finds her favorite character from the film, “Catwoman,” surrounded by feline companions and a reference or two to characters fans will instantly recognize. Yuko’s meticulously detailed and highly stylized illustrations well compliment Claudia’s layout and logo design in creating two prints those same fans won’t soon forget. In addition to DHM’s “Batman Returns” standard and variant edition prints are two select foil editions where the foil substrate reveals itself within various areas of each print creating a select, dynamic, and reflective edition.

All officially licensed Dark Hall Mansion limited edition “Batman Returns” prints go on sale this coming Tuesday, May 31st, at 12:30 PM PST on the dedicated store page HERE.
