The long-awaited animated Batman: The Killing Joke has a trailer!

The first full trailer for Batman: The Killing Joke is now available! The animated adaptation from DC Comics and Warner Bros., with the first ever R rating for a Batman film, brings the pages of Alan Moore and Brian Bolland’s award-winning 1988 graphic novel to life. As the trailer shows, the movie pulls scenes directly out of the comic book and comes damn close to matching the artistic style that distinguishes The Killing Joke from other standout titles.

Salt Lake Comic Con alum Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill return to voice Batman and The Joker respectively, reliving their days as the classic characters from Batman: The Animated Series. Also joining the voice cast for The Killing Joke are Tara Strong as Barbara Gordon/Batgirl and Ray Wise as Commissioner James Gordon, both of whom have a very strong presence in this first trailer and are sure to have pivotal scenes within the movie itself. Sam Liu directs the long-awaited adaptation that’s destined to become a fan-favorite.
