Batman: Mask of the Phantasm will be getting the 1080p treatment, which is a strong step up from the DVD release over a decade ago. No special features have been announced as yet outside of the theatrical trailer, but surely the chance to watch such an iconic animated film in HD (also featuring one of Mark Hamill’s best performances as The Joker) will be enough to get fans to bust out their wallets.
When the city’s most feared gangsters are systematically eliminated, the Caped Crusader is blamed. But prowling the Gotham night is a shadowy new villain, the Phantasm, a sinister figure with some link to Batman’s past. Can the Dark Knight elude the police, capture the Phantasm and clear his own name?
Unmasking the Phantasm is just one of the twists in this dazzling animated feature. Discover revelations about Batman’s past, his archrival the Joker and Batman’s most grueling battle ever — the choice between his love for a beautiful woman and his vow to be the defender of right. Batman: Mask of the Phantasm is “a mystery that is genuinely absorbing, suspenseful and moving”.
