Batman Forever released

Batman Forever is a 1995 superhero film directed by Joel Schumacher and the third installment of the Batman film series.

The film stars Val Kilmer, Tommy Lee Jones, Jim Carrey, Nicole Kidman and Chris O'Donnell. Batman Forever tells the story of Batman (Kilmer) trying to stop Two-Face (Jones) and the Riddler (Carrey) in their villainous scheme to drain information from all the brains in Gotham City. Batman gains alliance from psychiatrist Dr. Chase Meridian (Kidman) and adopted sidekick Robin (O'Donnell).

The film had a change in tone compared to the previous installments since Warner Bros. considered that the previous film, Batman Returns underperformed at the box office. Pre-production was troubled, with many actors considered for the various roles, and Val Kilmer entering in conflicts with the rest of the crew. Batman Forever was released to mixed reviews, but outgrossed Returns with over $336 million worldwide.
