From the box:
Chills and thrills: will Mr. Freeze put Gotham City on ice? George Clooney is Batman in a dazzling adventure (directed by Joel Schumacher) that pits the Dark Knight against his deadliest threat yet: cold-hearted Mr. Freeze (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and venomous Poison Ivy (Uma Thruman). Batman has more than Gotham City to protect: the youthful eagerness of crimefighting comrades Robin (Chris O’Donnell) and Batgirl (Alicia Silverstone) puts them frequently in harm’s way. New very special effects include a wild sky-surfing sequence and Mr. Freeze’s outrageous arsenal of ice-blasting weapons. It’s state-of-the-art excitement from our Batfamily to yours!
