Video: I saw Batman Forever in a movie theatre and, hunky Val Kilmer aside, pretty much haven’t ever wanted to repeat the experience. But a new fan-edited trailer for the 1995 Joel Schumacher-directed Bat-movie is sharp enough to make me reconsider.
YouTuber Sam Ibrahim uses Daft Punk music from Tron: Legacy and a keen eye for some of the most visually arresting moments in Batman Forever to cook up a clip that doesn’t make it seem like a goofy, overacted mess. While our own Cheryl Eddy has recently defended Schumacher’s film-making, it’s still hard to think of Batman Forever as one of the better Dark Knight movies. Thanks to one fan, at least it finally has a snappy trailer.
