The best news story of 2013 is now the subject of what looks like the best documentary of the year. "Batkid Begins" follows Nov. 15, 2013, also known as the day San Francisco turned into Gotham City and 5-year-old cancer patient Miles Scott turned into Batkid. More than 25,000 people, including President Obama, celebrated Scott and took part in his Make-A-Wish dream to become Batman.

In the new trailer for the Warner Bros. film, directed and produced by Dana Nachman, we see the entire story unfold from Scott's diagnosis through his treatment and his transformation into Batkid. Julia Roberts secured the rights to the film in January. Catch "Batkid Begins" in theaters June 26.
