It seems the world can't get enough of Batman, and with Christopher Nolan's 'The Dark Knight Rises' still a year away from release, consumers will just have to sit back and enjoy 'Batman: Year One,' an animated movie based on the graphic novel by Frank Miller.
'Batman: Year One' will once again tell the origin story of how Bruce Wayne turned his childhood trauma into a positive and devoted his life to fighting crime to ensure no one ever had to endure the tragedy that he went through. Like I even had to tell you that -- it's Batman! Just find yourself a copy of this movie when it's released and have a wicked awesome time.
