Burton's 'Batman' Gets 25th Anniversary Blu-ray14 Aug, 2014 By: John Latchem
Director Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman film will be re-released by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment in a new Blu-ray edition for the film’s 25th anniversary. Also timed for the 75th anniversary of the Batman character, Batman: 25th Anniversary Edition arrives Nov. 11 as a two-disc Blu-ray in Diamond Luxe collector-style packaging.
Also included is Batman: The Birth of the Modern Blockbuster — a look at how the marketing, merchandising and franchise positioning of Batman set the tone for tentpole films to come.
The disc is being released the same day as the long-awaited Blu-ray and DVD of the 1960s “Batman” TV series.
