Warner Bros Home Entertainment has issued info on it’s new DC Universe Original Movie. The trailer and artwork for the release follows.

Batman, one of the world’s most valiant super heroes, faces a villainous squad of criminals in an epic battle of good vs. evil in the DC Universe Original Movie, ”Batman: Assault on Arkham”. Set in the world of the best-selling Batman: Arkham video game series, this action-packed film takes place between the Batman: Arkham Origins and Batman: Arkham Asylum video games. The flick is available on August 12, 2014 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, on Blu-Ray™ Combo Pack, DVD and Digital HD.

Gotham is in great danger when the government assembles a group of villains — code named the Suicide Squad — and forces them to break into Arkham Asylum to retrieve top secret information stolen by the Riddler. Things take a turn for the worse when one of the Squad members (Harley Quinn) frees the Joker, who is intent on blowing up Arkham Asylum and Gotham City. Batman must use his super hero wits and strength to thwart the wicked plans of the Joker and the Suicide Squad.

“Batman: Assault on Arkham is a thrill-ride with everything a fan would want — a courageous super hero, depraved villains, and suspenseful plot twists,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, WBHE Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing. “Featuring voice talent from some of today’s hottest television actors, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is proud to release this as the next DC Universe Original Movie.”

“Working on a new Batman story is always exciting,” said Sam Register, President, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series. “As a fan of the Arkham video games, I know this movie is going to entertain all Batman groups, from comic book and super hero fans to the most dedicated gamer.”

Kevin Conroy (”Batman: The Animated Series”) voices Batman, and joins forces with several Hollywood greats to bring the legendary characters to life. Adding to the celebrity-laden cast is Neal McDonough (”Justified”, ”Desperate Housewives”) as Deadshot, Troy Baker (”The Last of Us”) as Joker, Matthew Gray Gubler (”Criminal Minds”) as Riddler, CCH Pounder (”The Shield”, ”Warehouse 13”) as Amanda Waller, Greg Ellis (”24”) as Captain Boomerang, and Giancarlo Esposito (”Breaking Bad”, ”Revolution”) as Black Spider.

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment, ”Batman: Assault on Arkham” is directed by Jay Oliva (”Man of Steel”, ”Justice League: War”) and Ethan Spaulding (”Son of Batman”) from a script written by Heath Corson (”Justice League: War”). Sam Register (”Beware the Batman”, ”Teen Titans Go!”), Benjamin Melniker (”The Dark Knight Rises”) and Michael Uslan (”The Dark Knight Rises”) serve as executive producers. James Tucker (”Son of Batman”) is Supervising Producer.
