Batman: Gotham By Gaslight Premiere Screening (For Mature Audiences 18+ Years of Age) — Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment provide a new take on Batman as a steampunk Dark Knight hunts Jack the Ripper through the shadows of turn of the century Gotham City in this all-new animated feature available from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment January 23, 2018, on Digital and February 6, 2018, on Blu-ray and DVD. The premiere event is for mature audiences 18 years of age or older, will kick off with a cocktail reception and will be followed with a Q&A session with the film’s voice cast and producers. Newseum Theatre
If you are in striking distance of the Washington DC area, be advised that tickets for the 1/12/18 screening of Batman: Gotham By Gaslight at the Newseum can now be reserved through Eventbrite. There is no charge for admission. If you think you can make it and want to go, I recommend submitting your RSVP sooner rather than later. I don't know how big the theater is but there's no guarantee this will be open for more than a few days.
I think it's cool that we get to see Bruce Greenwood play more into the Bruce Wayne side of things, albeit in a Victorian-era Bruce Wayne, since in both Under the Red Hood and Young Justice he had far more screentime as Batman .
This might be a little controversial, but I kind of wish they went with a different art style for this one. While the animation looks beautiful, I think the character models are just a little too cartoony. Yes it makes it easier to animate with a limited budget and it provide a contrast to the more ''mature'' material being presented on the screen... but still.
It didn't have to look like Mike Mignola... I just wish they would experiment and take more chances with the visuals.
