With The Dark Knight Rises not opening until December 2012, there's an upcoming movie to help fill the void: the direct-to-DVD Batman: Year One. MTV just debuted the movie's first trailer.
Based on the 1987 Batman comic book story arc written by Frank Miller and illustrated by David Mazzucchelli, Batman: Year One is considered by many to be the origin story for Batman, and is regarded as one of the best Batman storylines ever. Elements of the seminal work were used in director Christopher Nolan's first Batman movie, Batman Begins, including the characters of mobster Carmine Falcone (played by Tom Wilkinson), Gotham Police Commissioner Loeb (played by Colin McFarlane in both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight), and the corrupt Detective Flass (played by Mark Boone Jr.). The comic book arc also included the character of Catwoman, who will finally be featured in Nolan's Batman universe in The Dark Knight Rises. watch the trailer >> Posted 07.08.11 by Ryan
