Batman's box office performance back in the summer of '89 is the stuff of legends... We hadn't seen a blockbuster of this caliber since Star Wars, and we'll likely never see one that matches it again. Today's posting of various articles from a vintage edition of the entertainment newspaper Variety sheds a little more light and just how awesome Batman's presence was back in June of 1989...
Also included in this edition- "Batman: The Comic Connection"... A nice little article highlighting Batman's comic origins.
And we finish things off with this 3 page ad from Warner touting the film's success. They had every right to brag.

Tim Burton doesn't hide his feelings about Batman '89 in this brief but informative interview from the June 1992 issue of Details Magazine. Describing the first film as being made by a "conglomerate", it is obvious Burton felt Batman Returns would do a better job of delivering his personal take on Batman. Also included here- A great quote on how the should-have-won-the-Oscar actor Michael Keaton approaches his roles! Enjoy!
