Due to high fan demand, Fathom Events has added an extra night of theatrical screenings for the animated ‘Batman: The Killing Joke’.  The movie was originally slated to get a one-night-only theatrical release on Monday, July 25 on over 1000 screens.  But now, Fathom has added an extra night, Tuesday, July 26, so if you weren’t able to get tickets for the first screening, you have a second chance.

In a statement from their website, Fathom announced:

“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.”

‘The Killing Joke’ will make its world premier at San Diego Comic Con this weekend and will be available on VOD platforms on July 23.  It won’t arrive on Blu-Ray or DVD until August 2.

But if you were waiting for the home video releases, be warned that the version shown in theaters will include an exclusive introduction by Mark Hamill (The Joker) and a behind-the-scenes featurette that airs after the credits.

Earlier, Fathom Events Vice President of Studio Relations Tom Lucas announced:

“Fathom Events is thrilled to be able to bring ‘Batman: The Killing Joke’ to movie theaters across the country so fans can see it on the big screen. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment have created an amazing production based on a beloved graphic novel, and we’re honored to be a part of this release.”

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing Ellen Thomas added:

“Fans have been clamoring for a theatrical release of the popular DC Universe Original Movies, and the highly anticipated ‘Batman: The Killing Joke’ presented a perfect opportunity to work with Fathom Events to bring the fans’ wishes to fruition for this special, limited release.”
