Batman: The Killing Joke has been set up to be an extreme dark and intense animated feature, even earning an R-rating, so it should come as no surprise that the film’s soundtrack is following suit.
The soundtrack will also feature the singing talents of Mark Hamill, who is the voice of the Joker in the film. Hamill will be performing “I Go Looney,” which is set to bring to live a very well-known part of the graphic novel to life.
The Killing Joke will be released in theaters one day prior to the film’s release. The one-night-only screening event will be held on Monday, July 25 at 7:30 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. in theaters. Meanwhile, the movie will be released on Blu-Ray and DVD August 2. You can buy your tickets for those screenings here.
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.
