Pennyworth Teaser Gives First Look At Batman Prequel Series

Epix has released the official Pennyworth teaser for their upcoming Batman prequel series centered on the origin story of Bruce Wayne’s butler, Alfred Pennyworth.

Pennyworth will star Jack Bannon (The Imitation Game, Medici) as Alfred Pennyworth, Ben Aldridge (Fleabag) as Thomas Wayne, Ryan Fletcher as Dave Boy, Hainsley Lloyd Bennett as Bazza, Paloma Faith as Bet Sykes, Jason Flemyng (The Curios Case of Benjamin Button) as Lord Harwood and Polly Walker as Peggy Sykes.

The series follows Alfred Pennyworth, a former British SAS soldier in his 20s, who forms a security company and goes to work with a young billionaire Thomas Wayne (Ben Aldridge), who’s not yet Bruce’s father.

Alfred Pennyworth is described as a boyishly handsome, cheerful, charming, clever young man from London. You would never take him for an SAS killer, thanks to his honest, open-faced, and witty demeanor. Alfred doesn’t know how to reconcile the kind-hearted boy he used to be with the cold, calculated killer he was forced to become, and he doesn’t know what to make of himself yet.

Pennyworth comes from executive producer and writer Bruno Heller (Gotham, The Mentalist, Rome) and Danny Cannon (Gotham, CSI), who will also direct.

The 10-episode, one-hour drama series is based on DC characters created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger. Production on the Warner Horizon Scripted Television series began last October at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden in the UK. The series will arrive on Epix this summer.

The Dark Knight Trilogy Returning To Theaters For Special Anniversary Screenings

Warner Bros. Pictures is returning all three films in Christopher Nolan’s $2.5 billion “Dark Knight” Trilogy to the biggest of the big screens—IMAX film—in honor of the first-ever appearance of Batman in the comics.

First, on Saturday, March 30, the films—2005’s “Batman Begins,” 2008’s “The Dark Knight” and 2012’s “The Dark Knight Rises”—will screen back-to-back at the Universal Cinema AMC at CityWalk Hollywood, California. During an interlude between the second and third films, Nolan will join the audience for a moderated Q&A discussion on the movies.

Then on April 13, the Trilogy will screen at AMC Lincoln Square in New York City and AMC Metreon in San Francisco, followed by Cinesphere Ontario Place, Toronto, and IMAX Theatre at the Indiana State Museum, Indianapolis, on April 20, each accompanied by the footage of Nolan’s Los Angeles appearance.

In all five cities, all three movies will be seen in the director’s preferred format, IMAX 70mm, providing an all-encompassing moviegoing experience. In fact, it was Nolan who, with “The Dark Knight,” was the first filmmaker to shoot the action sequences of a major feature film with IMAX cameras, revolutionizing the integration of IMAX and standard formats. He again utilized IMAX cameras even more extensively in “The Dark Knight Rises.”

Goldstein stated, “Christopher Nolan broke new ground with the ‘Dark Knight’ Trilogy, and this is a rare chance for today’s audiences to experience these extraordinary films as they were meant to be seen. To have the added privilege of hearing Chris’s insights firsthand makes this a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

Tickets for all events will go on sale beginning Wednesday, March 13, at 9 a.m. PDT, and moviegoers who acquire tickets for all three films will receive a lanyard and special “Dark Knight” Trilogy collectible.
