Swoop into Gotham City and experience Batman, Batman Returns, Batman Forever and Batman & Robin like never before on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray
In 1989, director Tim Burton changed the superhero genre forever when brought his incarnation of Batman to the screen. With Michael Keaton cast as Gotham’s Caped Crusader, Tim Burton delivered a far darker take on the character than anything ever attempted before. The rest, as they say, was history and the dark knight flourished under the leadership of Warner Bros. with a further three blockbuster movies in Batman Returns, Batman Forever and the divisive Batman & Robin.
At long last, these fantastic movies are finally set to make the transition to 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray giving fans the chance to experience Batman, Batman Returns, Batman Forever and Batman & Robin like never before. And now Warner Bros. Shop UK has made them all available for pre-order.
After witnessing his parents’ brutal murder as a child, millionaire-philanthropist Bruce Wayne pledges his life to fight crime disguised as Batman. His long-time nemesis, The Joker, has sinister plans for the citizens of Gotham City. His greed is matched by his obsession with photojournalist Vicki Vale. But Batman is there to counter the Joker’s every move. With the fate of Gotham and Vicki in the balance, will good or evil prevail?

Gotham City faces two monstrous criminal menaces: the bizarre, sinister Penguin (Danny DeVito) and the slinky, mysterious Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer). Can Batman (Michael Keaton) battle two formidable foes at once? Especially when one wants to be mayor and the other is romantically attracted to Gotham’s hero? Like the 1989 groundbreaking original, Batman Returns is directed by the moviemaking wizard Tim Burton. And like the first blockbuster, it’s a dazzling adventure that leaves you breathless.

Batman & Robin:
George Clooney plays the Dark Knight, who’s facing his deadliest threat yet: coldhearted Mr Freeze (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and venomous Poison Ivy (Uma Thurman). Batman has more than Gotham City to protect: The youthful eagerness of crimefighting comrades Robin (Chris O’Donnell) and Batgirl (Alicia Silverstone) puts them frequently in harm’s way. Very special effects include a wild skydiving sequence and Mr Freeze’s outrageous arsenal of ice-blasting weapons. Joel Schumacher directs.
