The newest iteration of DC'S Caped Crusader tops the DVD releases for the week of May 24.

"The Batman": Robert Pattinson steps in as the rich young scion of Gotham who dons a bat suit to fight crime, battling villains Penguin (Colin Farrell) and the Riddler (Paul Dano) while tangling with Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz) as well. Also starring Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro and Andy Serkis.

"While chasing the Riddler, a Jigsaw-like serial murderer leaving the bodies of Gotham’s leaders in his wake, Batman stumbles into the deep-rooted corruption of the city, and organized crime’s grip on local politics and law enforcement, touching even his own storied family history, hitting uncomfortably close to home," writes Tribune News Service critic Katie Walsh in her review. "In its uncompromising vision, it may not be for everyone, but it’s definitely the movie that Batman needed."
