The Animatrix: The Complete First Season
From the creators of The Matrix trilogy, this groundbreaking collection of nine short films from seven of the world's leading anime directors provides a visionary fusion of CG-Animatrion and Japanese anime.
Neo, Morpheus, Trinity and the evil Agent Smith are back, and the battle for the human race continues! Written and directed by the acclaimed Wachowski brothers and from action producer Joel Silver ("Swordfish," the "Lethal Weapon" and "Die Hard" series), this is the highly anticipated sequel to the runaway box-office smash hit ($171+ million) and record-selling DVD "The Matrix." Starring Keanu Reeves ("Hard Ball," "The Devil's Advocate"), Oscar-nominated Laurence Fishburne ("Biker Boyz," "What's Love Got to Do With It"), Carrie-Anne Moss ("Chocolat," "Memento"), Hugo Weaving ("The Lord of the Rings 1 & 2"), Jada Pinkett Smith ("Ali," "Scream 2"), Monica Bellucci ("Tears of the Sun," "Malena") and Nona M. Gaye ("Ali"). The Caped Crusader takes on a whole new look, and the world's most dangerous villains, in this full-length animated feature. This high- octane anthology features six different Batman stories, each from a diverse list of creators, including Academy Award-nominee Josh Olsen ("A History of Violence"), screenwriter of "Batman Begins" David S. Goyer, and award-winning comic book writer Brian Azzarello. The six tales reveal Bruce Wayne's earliest adventures as Batman, as he travels the globe to stop the villainous Scarecrow, Killer Croc and Deadshot. When taken together, the stories in "Batman: Gotham Knight" form a bridge between the blockbuster live-action feature "Batman Begins" and its much-anticipated sequel "The Dark Knight." Produced by the most creative "Batman" team working today, including Bruce Timm (TV's "Justice League Unlimited"), Alan Burnett ("Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker"), and David S. Goyer ("Batman Begins," "Ghost Rider"). MPAA Rating: PG-13 (c) 2008 Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. All Rights Reserved.
