BATMAN : After witnessing the brutal murder of his parents as a child, millionaire-philanthropist Bruce Wayne (Michael Keaton) pledges his life to fighting crime disguised as Batman. But his long-time nemesis, The Joker (Jack Nicholson in a memorable performance), has sinister plans for the citizens of Gotham City.


The Joker's greed is matched by his obsession with photojournalist Vicki Vale (Kim Basinger). But Batman is there to counter the Joker's every move. With the fate of Gotham and Vicki in the balance, will good or evil prevail?


BATMAN RETURNS : In the second of the blockbuster Batman films, the legendary hero does battle against the mysterious Cat Woman and the diabolical Penguin.


Gotham City faces two monstrous criminal menaces: the bizarre, sinister Penguin (Danny DeVito) and the slinky, mysterious Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer).


Can Batman (Michael Keaton) battle two formidable foes at once?


Especially when one wants to be mayor and the other is romantically attracted to Bruce Wayne?


Like the groundbreaking 1989 original, Batman Returns is directed by the wizardly Tim Burton. And like the first blockbuster, it's a dazzling adventure that leaves you breathless.
