Batman, Gotham Knight anime style.
The geek machine has fired into overdrive for Christopher Nolan's incoming prequel sequel, The Dark Knight. But the untold hero of this summer's Batman assault may lie elsewhere -- in the Animatrix-inspired Batman: Gotham Knight, to be exact.
Like The Matrix franchise before it, the Batman franchise has learned that filtering your mythology through the kinetic template of anime can do wonders for your upgrades. Batman: Gotham Knight is that upgrade, and it looks kickass. The Warner Bros. DVD-only film, due out July 8, sent Underwire these sneak-peek pics, which make great eye candy. The hi-def trailer is at right.
Wow, this trailer rocks. I really, really want to watch this version of Batman. From I understand there will be 6 short vids, 3 of them anime styled. Something like Animatrix compilation of short stories, to wet fans appetite for upcoming Dark Knight sequel to excellent movie.
Hopefully there will be a full length anime rendition of Dark Knight, I believe it can work.
