Special Feature:
1989 Batman Press Kit & Publicity Photos

Back in the days when newspapers were one of the largest publicity tools available to a movie's promotion, film studios would create collections of high quality film production photos for publishers to use in their movie-related articles. In most cases, these photos would get tucked in with a film's press kit. The following collection of photos are some of the many press kit images used to promote "Batman" in print.
