Batman: The Killing Joke (2016)

Based on the graphic novel by Alan Moore (purveyor of some very adult-oriented comic strips), this sees Batman in a showdown with a truly chilling incarnation of the Joker, and was the first Batman film to get an adults only rating in the US. It’s scary and disturbing, and about a million miles away from the “kapow!” Adam West TV series of the Sixties.

Seoul Station (15) is released on DVD and Blu-ray from StudioCanal on 3 April. Out now on Digital Download.
