When the first trailers for "Iron Man 3" hit the interwebs a few months ago, one thing jumped out at fans right away: The debut of Iron Patriot, which is basically a suit of Iron Man armor painted to look like the American flag. Seriously, just when you thought Iron Man couldn't get any cooler, this thing comes along, smashing evil ideologies with the fist of superhero righteousness. U-S-A! U-S-A! Get More »
The inimitable Patton Oswalt stars as the Penguin in this laugh-out-loud (I mean that in a literal way, not in a "standard adjective for funny" way; I laughed out loud while watching it) video from College Humor that co-stars fellow comedian Pete Holmes as the Caped Crusader.
In the video, the Penguin and Commissioner Gordon good-naturedly but futilely attempt to explain to Batman that his "one rule" — that he will not kill people — has actually been broken several times, before ultimately realizing that Batman has no actual grasp of the concept of death. Batman gruesomely kills multiple criminals mid-conversation without realizing that they are dead and not "asleep," which astounds both Gordon and the Penguin. Then things take a turn for the ultra-violent. Get More »
Juicy. Firm. Luscious.
Guys, we're not talking about a piece of fruit! (Though fruit is a nutritious snack that can often be described by the above adjectives.) Uh-uh, we're thinking more along the lines of abs than apples. Particularly, the abdominal regions of our 2013 MTV Movie Awards Best Shirtless Performance nominees. Which nominee will dance away with the Golden Popcorn in this brand new category on Sunday night? Get More »
Everybody has at least one friend who is obsessed with Batman. They collect the comics, put the pointy ears and cape on for Halloween, or watch "The Dark Knight" like it's their job.
There's probably a part of these incurable obsessives that wishes either A) they could live in Wayne Manor with Alfred or B) that Batman was in every movie, and luckily that second fantasy has been fulfilled with the YouTube vid "Batman in Classic Movie Scenes." Get More »
Some people spend most of their time in front of a computer ... and others go out and do stuff like this.
Behold some of the most elaborate and large-scale movie-themed fan art you'll ever see, most of it created under cover of night with a few spray cans and a seething desire to create ... or at least conjure stunning portraits of Neo, Freddy Krueger, Yoda, the Dude and other pop culture icons that shape our everyday lives. If only all walls were this cool.
Something's rotten in the state of Gotham City, and it's not the metallic stank of Bane's handmade grenades. It's actually a baby diaper, the one worn by the tot backpacked to Zach Galifiankis, breakout star of the "Hangover" franchise, the third installment of which comes out in May.
So let's all scratch our heads in collective bewilderment at the fact that, until now, there were apparently zero "The Dark Knight"-"Hangover" crossover mashups. They just didn't exist, despite the brainiacs who plunge the web full of geek-sanctioned movie buffery day after day, hour after hour. But, finally, it's here, and Ken Jeong is looking super-serious about it.
In other words, the Dark Knight certainly Rises, but not 'til noon and with a pounding headache. It was that kind of night.
We've heard of epic rap battles before, but there's one flow master you really don't want to challenge — because he will quite literally break your back if you do.
Yes folks, it's Bane, the scourge of "The Dark Knight Rises" and one of the most infamously mumblemouthed characters in film history. And given how indecipherable most of his dialogue was in that film, chances are you probably didn't realize that behind that mask resides a true hip-hop genius. Get More »
They once fought for supremacy of Gotham City. Now, they're looking to conquer the same mountain.
Christian Bale and Tom Hardy, respectively the hero and villain of "The Dark Knight Rises," are once again at odds as they're starring in two separate movies about Mount Everest, according to Deadline. Get More »
Valentine's Day is great for getting cards and candy and flowers and stuff. But some people take the concept of "Be Mine" to rather sinister and even psychotic levels.
No, we're not talking about anyone's ex (well, not in particular, anyway). We speak of the diabolical romantics that make for some of cinema's most memorable and twisted villains. This Valentine's Day, you should recall a different holiday and be thankful that you're not the one receiving some of the sentiments below.
On Super Bowl Sunday a 34-minute power failure cast a pallor of darkness over the big game, and though many valid conspiracy theories exist (voodoo priests avenging Katrina, concerted effort to bombard viewers with ads, etc) only one man could be the cause of it all: BANE!
In desperate search for his Adult Asthma Inhaler lost somewhere among the bleachers, the masked "Dark Knight Rises" bad guy announced his act of sports terrorism via, well, a few too many outlets, and Buzzfeed has the proof. Get More »
