The animated feature film Batman: The Killing Joke was originally set to have a one-night-only theater screening event on Monday, July 25th, but ticket demand has reportedly been so high that Fathom Events, which is featuring the film on over 1,000 screens, has decided to add an extra night of screenings.
As Fathom writes on its official website, Batman fans will now have be able to see the film on July 26 if they weren’t able to secure a ticket for the Monday. “Due to unprecedented demand, a second date and two additional show times have been added. Participating locations for July 26 are limited and ticketing is being set up continuously so click on the orange “Buy Tickets” button to purchase today. If online ticketing is not available for your location, please check back often or visit the local movie theater box office.”
Although Batman: The Killing Joke is launching on VOD platforms July 23, fans may want to hold off and get in on a screening if they can, as Warner Bros. has included a few additional rewards for theatergoers. Each screening will have a special introduction from Joker voice actor Mark Hamill, as well as a post credits behind-the-scenes feature that explores the film’s production.
The film will also be screening later this week at San Diego Comic Con. Those who wish to own physical copies of the film will have to wait until August 2 when it launches on Blu-ray and DVD.
