'Gotham' Debuts New Gritty Trailer: 'Town Is at a Tipping Point' (Exclusive Video)
A new trailer for Fox's anticipated Batman prequel, Gotham, is debuting during Tuesday's MLB All-Star Game.
Set to Aloe Blacc's "Ticking Bomb," the gritty, stylized 45-second teaser that The Hollywood Reporter exclusively debuts focuses on a young Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) as he finds himself deeply intertwined with the growing dissension in Gotham City.
"This is my city. I've come back because I care what's happening to it. Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one who cares. This town is at a tipping point: crime, corruption, ooze on every corner. Someone needs to take a stand against it all — and that is where we come in," Jim says in voiceover as glimpses of younger versions of Batman characters like Oswald Cobblepott/Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor), Selina Kyle (Camren Bicondova) and Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith).
Sean Pertwee (Alfred), Erin Richards (Barbara Kean), Donal Logue (Harvey Bullock) and David Mazouz (Bruce Wayne) also star. Bruno Heller serves as showrunner/executive producer.
Watch the trailer below.
Gotham premieres Sept. 22 at 8 p.m. on Fox.
