Batman: The Killing Joke Trailer 2. The second movie trailer for Sam Liu‘s Batman: The Killing Joke (2016) has been released. I am on the fence with the animation in this film. I like it but I don’t love it. I do not love it because I know that there is better animation available. The problem is that it would have cost three or four times more than the animation used in this film. Japanese production studios (Production I.G, Toei Animation, Gainax, Madhouse, Gonzo, etc.) could have brought the Batman: The Killing Joke graphic novel to life in a way that would have been very close to comic book. The current incarnation is good, very good in some scenes (from what can be gleamed for the trailer below and teaser trailer / movie featruette released earlier) but it is not as good as it could have been if one of the above production studio had been brought in to handle the animation.
All that being said, this trailer delivers on the promise of the teaser trailer. It certainly does not look like they held anything back with the content thanks to DC green-lighting an R-rating. Do I think this film will be as good a Batman: The Dark Knight Returns: Part 1? No. Do I think that it will be good and entertaining? Oh yes.
Batman: The Killing Joke stars Mark Hamill, Tara Strong, Ray Wise, and Kevin Conroy.
Batman: The Killing Joke‘s plot synopsis: based on the graphic novel by Alan Moore and Brian Bolland, “As Batman hunts for the escaped Joker, the Clown Prince of Crime attacks the Gordon family to prove a diabolical point mirroring his own fall into madness.”
