The latest DC team up pairs unlikely allies Batman and Harley Quinn together as they seek to take down Poison Ivy and Floronic Man, and fans will have a chance to see the film in theaters.
Like Batman: The Killing Joke and Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders before it, Batman and Harley Quinn will be getting a theatrical showing from Fathom Events (via Batman News). The showing will take place on Monday, August 14th at 7:30 pm, and you can find the theaters that will be showing the movie here.
"Fans of DC Universe Original Movies are a devoted legion, and never was that so evident than with the enthusiastic embracing of our 'Batman: The Killing Joke' Fathom Events presentation," said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family and Animation Marketing. "Audiences nationwide turned the screenings into true interactive experiences, and we believe 'Batman and Harley Quinn' will inspire a similar night of celebration."
Fans will get their first chance to see the film at San Diego Comic-Con in July, and you can find the description for the film below.
In Batman and Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy and Jason Woodrue (a.k.a. The Floronic Man) embark on an ecological quest to save the planet – and, unfortunately, eliminate most of humankind along the way. To save humanity, Batman and Nightwing are forced to enlist Harley Quinn to catch Poison Ivy, Harley's BFF and frequent partner-in-crime. But Batman's patience is put to the test by the unpredictable and untrustworthy Harley during the twists and turns the reluctant companions face during their bumpy road trip. The result is a thrill ride of action, adventure and comedy no Batman fan has seen before.
The film features a voice cast led by Kevin Conroy (Batman: The Animated Series) reprising his role as the Dark Knight, alongside Melissa Rauch (The Big Bang Theory) making her debut as Harley Quinn. Loren Lester, the voice of Robin in Batman: The Animated Series, returns as Nightwing. Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds) and Kevin Michael Richardson (The Cleveland Show) provide the voices of the villainous duo Poison Ivy & Jason Woodrue, respectively.
