We all know about The Dark Night Batman/Bruce Wayne’s past, but we rarely know much about his arch nemesis The Joker?

Based on the acclaimed DC graphic novel of the same name, Batman: The Killing Joke takes a journey into the dark psyche of the Clown Prince of Crime – from his humble beginnings as a struggling comedian, to his fateful encounter with Batman that changes both of their lives forever. Years later, and now escaped from Arkham Asylum, The Joker devises a plan to prove that one bad day can make anyone as insane as he is – setting his sights on Commissioner Gordon. It’s up to the Dark Knight to put a stop to The Joker’s latest scheme and save one of Gotham City’s finest. Following a gripping prologue introducing Barbara Gordon’s heroic adventures alongside Batman as Batgirl, Batman: The Killing Joke stays true to the authentic tale that has held fans’ imaginations for nearly three decades – spotlighting the birth of a Super-Villain, the fortitude of a Super Hero and the punchline that will leave you speechless.
When it comes to animations that are more focused on adults/older teens that are not anime it’s a rarity. But if you know the source of this film (the graphic novel), you’ll know there’s no other way to deliver The Killing Joke!
The film reunites the foundation of Batman: The Animated Series with Bruce Timm returning as executive producer,Sam Liu directing and actors Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill reprising their seminal roles as Batman and The Joker.
