Year One, a 4K remastered release of the classic adventure game The Longest Journey, celebrates its 10th anniversary with a limited-edition release.
The best 4k movies is a movie that was released 10 years ago and it’s now on Blu-ray.
Batman: Year One, Warner Bros.’ critically acclaimed animated adaptation, is commemorating its tenth anniversary with a special 4K UHD special commemorative edition. With Matt Reeves’ forthcoming The Batman seeming to draw a lot of elements from Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli’s narrative of a young Bruce Wayne taking his first steps as the Dark Knight of Gotham, Warner Bros. couldn’t pass up the chance to create a song and dance about it.
A remastered version of the film will be included in the new edition, as well as a fresh new extra feature called Reinventing Gordon. “DC Universe Movies Flashback” is also featured, which looks back at some of the previous animated Batman films, like Soul of the Dragon and The Long Halloween Parts One and Two. From November 9th, the album will be available on both digital and physical media.

There are a lot of parallels to be seen between the film and the forthcoming Batman films, but the new featurette focusing on Commissioner Gordon is the one that ties them all together. Ben McKenzie, who portrayed Gordon on the TV show Gotham, voiced Bruce Wayne in Batman: Year One, while Jeffrey Wright will reprise the character in Matt Reeves’ film as well as the TV spin-off, Gotham PD. In addition, the Gordon family will be central to the upcoming HBO Max film Batgirl, starring Leslie Grace as Barbara Gordon, Jim Gordon’s daughter.
Given that the commemorative edition will be released shortly after DC FanDome, it has already been announced that there will be a sneak peek of this new featurette at the event, and given that you can’t really preview something that’s very short, it’s safe to assume that the new material will be substantial in length for an additional featurette.
The official synopsis for Batman: Year One from Warner Bros. is as follows: “Batman: Year One is based on the landmark 1987 DC titles from 12-time Eisner Award winner and Eisner Award Hall of Fame member Frank Miller and illustrator David Mazzucchelli, and was originally released on Blu-ray and DVD in 2011. The film portrays teenage Bruce Wayne’s return to Gotham City as a costumed Super Hero in his initial efforts to combat injustice. To fight crime, the playboy billionaire adopts the disguise of a giant bat, forges an early bond with a young Lieutenant James Gordon (who is already fighting corruption within the police department), inadvertently aids in the birth of Catwoman, and aids in the overthrow of a corrupt political system infesting Gotham City.”
Bryan Cranston plays Jim Gordon, Eliza Dushku plays Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Alex Rocco plays Carmine Falcone, and Kate Sackhoff plays Detective Sarah Essen, with Jon Polito, Jeff Bennett, Grey Griffin, Robin Atkin Downes, Keith Ferguson, Fred Tatasciore, Stephen Root, Liliana Mumy, and Nick Jameson providing additional voices.
