Batman & Robin is a superhero film based on the DC Comics characters Batman and Robin that was released in 1997. It is the fourth and last part of Warner Bros.’ original Batman film series, a sequel to Batman Forever, and the only film in the series to be filmed without Tim Burton’s involvement in any way.
It stars George Clooney as Bruce Wayne / Batman, replacing Val Kilmer, Arnold Schwarzenegger as Victor Fries / Mr. Freeze, and Chris O’Donnell reprising his role as Dick Grayson / Robin, alongside Uma Thurman, Alicia Silverstone, Michael Gough, Pat Hingle, and Elle Macpherson, and is directed by Joel Schumacher and written by Akiva Goldsman.
The movie follows the titular characters as they try to stop Mr. Freeze and Poison Ivy from taking over the world while also trying to keep their relationship together. It is also the only live-action film appearance of Batgirl, who is played by Alicia Silverstone who assists the title protagonists in their struggle against the criminals.
The film Batman & Robin premiered in Los Angeles on June 12, 1997, and was released nationwide on June 20, 1997. The picture was a box office flop, grossing $238.2 million worldwide against a production budget of $160 million. It garnered largely unfavorable reviews and is often regarded as one of the worst films ever made.
It’s also the lowest-grossing live-action Batman movie of all time. Because of the film’s dismal reaction, Warner Bros. decided to cancel a sequel, Batman Unchained, and reboot the franchise with Batman Begins in 2005.
