Unless you've been in the Batcave, then you know that Batman was 1989's record-breaking blockbuster. Already among the top five all-time, box-office champs. Crime-plagued Gotham City has a new champion in Tim Burton's haunting and hallucinatory blockbusbuster! Michael Keaton stars as the brooding Caped Crusader, but it's Jack Nicholson who costars as his nemesis, "The Joker." The self-described "fully functional homicidal artist" steals the show.
