Alan Moore and Brian Bolland’s Batman: The Killing Joke is an iconic story in the history of Batman comics. The graphic novel was published in 1988, but it made the New York Times bestsellers list as recently as 2009 and has influenced almost three decades of writing and film, especially when it comes to the Joker.
Now this story is coming to the screen in the form of a full-length animated film—featuring Kevin Conroy as Batman and Mark Hamill as the Joker, reprising the roles they voiced in Batman: The Animated Series and many other animated films, TV series, and video games. It will premiere at San Diego Comic-Con this week before being released digitally July 26 and on Blu-ray August 2.
But in between, it will be coming to theaters for one night only—next Monday, July 25—and we’re giving away three pairs of tickets for you to see it!
To enter, you just need to:
- Follow @TwinCitiesGeeks on Twitter
- Include both @TwinCitiesGeeks and the hashtag #BatmanTheKillingJoke in a tweet that tells us your favorite actor ever to play the Joker
Entries will be accepted until 2:00 p.m. Central time on Friday, July 22, 2016.
We’ll randomly pick THREE WINNERS who will each receive TWO TICKETS to see Batman: The Killing Joke at 7:30 on Monday, July 25, at the AMC theater in Roseville.
Note: This is not the only showing at Rosedale, and Rosedale isn’t the only theater in Minnesota showing the film. For a full list of theaters hosting this event, or to purchase tickets in case you aren’t chosen as one of our winners, click here to visit the Fathom Events page for The Killing Joke.
