It’s day 14 of our very own special Christmas Movie Advent Calendar, the Screen One Christmas Movie Countdown. Join with us as we continue to countdown to Christmas with a new movie to watch each day as the days get ever closer to the big day. All films are availble via various streaming and terrestrial TV services.
Day 14 – Batman Returns (NOWTV)
Having defeated the Joker, Batman now faces the Penguin—a warped and deformed individual who is intent on being accepted into Gotham society, with the help of Max Schreck, a crooked businessman, whom he coerces into helping him run for the position of Mayor of Gotham, while they both attempt to frame Batman in a different light. Batman must attempt to clear his name, all while also deciding just what must be done with the mysterious Catwoman slinking about.
Even Christmas needs a superhero movie and filling that void is Batman Returns the sequel to the ever popular Batman (Michael Keaton), Tim Burton continued with his majestic gothic vision for the caped crusader and brings us Returns as Bats does battle with the Penguin played by Danny DeVito and Michelle Pfieffer’s sultry Catwoman. With bad guys jumping out of Christmas trees, battles in the snow and general Christmas carnage make this a slightly different Christmas movie. More seasons beatings than greetings.
