  Batman (1989 movie)
Batman was released in U.S. theaters on June 23, 1989 by Warner Bros. and soon became the highest grossing movie of the year.

Batman was the title of an exceptionally popular TV series based on the comic-book character Batman that aired on ABC TV from 1966 through 1968.
Its use of outrageous, psychedelic sets and costumes, along with wild camera angles (with the villains' lairs always being filmed with the camera at an angle to emphasize the "crooked" nature of the bad guys) and bright colors, were meant to evoke the four-color, campy world of the comic books of the 1950s and 1960s.
A movie version of the TV show was released to theaters (see Batman (1966 movie)), but it did not become a large box office hit.

 Review: Batman (1989)

All of the big moments in the movie are pounded home with ear-shattering sound effects and a jackhammer cutting style, but that just serves to underline the movie's problem, which is a curious lack of suspense and intrinsic interest.
"Batman" discards the recent cultural history of the Batman character - the camp 1960s TV series, the in-joke comic books - and returns to the mood of the 1940s, the decade of film noir and fascism.

 Batman (1989)
Lots of people think that Batman and 1992’s Batman Returns were too dark and disturbing and would have preferred lighter fare such as the old TV series from the 1960s; these people somewhat got their wish with the brighter - and much less compelling Joel Schumacher entries, 1995’s Batman Forever and Batman and Robin.
