Hey truckers – any fans of custom cars out there? How about one of the most famous custom cars in existence? The Batmobile!
A new documentary film about batmobiles, set to debut this winter, features interviews with Batman filmmakers Chris Nolan, Joel Schumacher and Tim Burton. A couple of Batmen get a chance to talk as well, from TV’s original Batman, Adam West, to Dark Knight Christian Bale. The film’s producers also get a few words from George Barris, who aside from being a character in his own right, created the 1960s Batmobile West drove around on camera for several years.
And we have to say – we have a special place in our hearts for the Barris creation. It just LOOKS like a crime fighter’s car that has some real juice, not just some crazy jet fuselage with tail fins. Seriously – come on. How can you even park that monstrosity that inhabited the Joel Schumacher films? We doubt it even fits under the drive through canopy for late night bat snacks!
Anyway – here’s a sneak peek at the film that arrives in just a short while with lots of footage and some great close ups that show these cars are much more than just props. Enjoy!
