The song reached the Top 20 of the iTunes chart for the first time in August 2020 after appearing in a trailer
for the 2022 film The Batman
. The revamped version finds the film's composer, Michael Giacchino, integrating additional layers of piano, drums and orchestral elements.
The song also appears twice in the movie, giving it another big boost on streaming services. According to the film's director, Matt Reeves, this Batman, played by Robert Pattinson, was inspired in part by Kurt Cobain: a tormented superstar who goes into seclusion to battle his demons.
