Special Feature:
Batman Returns Press Kit & Publicity Photos

Today's post features a selection of the publicity stills created for Batman's sensational sequel, Batman Returns. As explained in the '89 Batman publicity photo post, these high quality film photos were created by the studio's promotional department for publishers to use in their movie-related articles. The selection of photos seen here came from the film's press kit (which will be featured in a future post). As I come across more of these, I'll periodically update this post with the new additions. :)

Vintage Magazine Article:
June 26, 1989

Just how big was "Batmania" back in '89? So big that Newsweek felt it deserved coverage in their June 26, 1989 issue! And with estimates that sales of licensed Bat-goods would reach $250 million by Christmas of that year, who could blame them?
