The Batman is set to take fans on a wild ride next year, but before that adventure Honest Trailers is giving their take on the animated classic, Batman: Mask Of The Phantasm.
Screen Junkies latest episode of Honest Trailers highlights everyone’s favorite billionaire who dresses up like a bat at night in the animated classic, Batman Mask of the Phantasm. The animated film was released in 1993 to critical appraise, but a low box-office return. It was directed by Eric Radomski and Bruce Timm and featured Batman: The Animated Series‘ staples like Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill. The movie follows Batman/Bruce Wayne as he attempts to track down a mysterious vigilante, while also coming to grips with his own troubled past.
The trailer makes fun of the many times that we’ve seen the origin shot of Batman with the murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne. Along those lines, the video also points out the number of scenes in the movie that took place in graveyards. Surprisingly enough, It is fun to count how much of the movie took place in this location!
We also see the introduction of Andrea Beaumont and how her character adds to list of woman that Batman has fallen for, such as Vicki Vale from the 1989 film Batman and Dr. Chase Meridian from Batman Forever. Another fun moment is the introduction of the Phantasm and the Screen Junkies’ take on the Mask of Phantasm’s use of the smokescreen and comparing it to flatulence. This video doesn’t seem to make any harsh critical judgments about the movie, yet jokingly mocks it very well. Batman: Mask of the Phantasm has stood the test of time in fans’ eyes and will continue to do so even with this spoof of the film.
