‘Batman: The Killing Joke’ Getting Second Night Of Screenings

Awhile back, it was revealed that Fathom Events would be holding screenings of the R rated Batman: The Killing Joke in theaters all across the country. Monday, July 25 was the only day it would be screened, so tickets went on high demand. Eventually, they added 300 theaters from all around the nation, giving even more fans the chance to see Killing Joke done on the big screen. Now, Fathom Events is adding a second night of screenings, which will take place on Tuesday, July 26.

Along with the movie, fans attending the screening will get to see a special introduction by Mark Hamill, along with an exclusive documentary about his passion for this project.

“Based on the acclaimed DC graphic novel of the same name, Batman: The Killing Joke takes a journey into the dark psyche of the Clown Prince of Crime – from his humble beginnings as a struggling comedian to his fateful encounter with Batman that changes both of their lives forever. Years later, and now escaped from Arkham Asylum, The Joker devises a plan to prove that one bad day can make anyone as insane as he is – setting his sights on Commissioner Gordon. It’s up to the Dark Knight to put a stop to The Joker’s latest scheme and save one of Gotham City’s finest. Following a gripping prologue introducing Barbara Gordon’s heroic adventures alongside Batman as Batgirl, Batman: The Killing Joke stays true to the authentic tale that has held fans’ imaginations for nearly three decades – spotlighting the birth of a Super-Villain, the fortitude of a Super Hero and the punchline that will leave you speechless.”
