'Calvin and Hobbes': The Gritty Movie Version

"Calvin and Hobbes" is a classic comic strip that has inspired generations of fans, many of whom have used the opportunity to search for deeper philosophical and existential allegories between the kid and the cat. The team at YouTube channel Gritty Reboots have created a profoundly dark, contemplative fake trailer for a Calvin and Hobbes flick that brings to mind eerie modern noir like "Donnie Darko" and "Memento."

As the filmmakers describe it, "While growing up, Calvin's imagination always kept him sane. He didn't have many friends, so he created one. As he got older, he tried to leave childish things behind. But his imagination had a different plan." Somewhere, "Calvin and Hobbes" creator Bill Watterson is saying, "These guys get it!"

Next up: Gritty Reboots tackle "Cathy." Okay, not really, but we can dream, can't we?

The 10 Best Trailers of 2012

The Great Gatsby Warner Bros.

There's a certain art to making a great movie trailer. And frankly, hardly anybody seems to have mastered that art.

Indeed, for every halfway-interesting trailer that comes out there are ten more that give away the entire plot, deliver nothing but obvious jokes about farts and crotch punches or are simply a series of incredibly fast jump cuts with weird music playing over them. In short, they are crap. Get More »

Get More: MTV Shows

"The Dark Knight Rises" is the final film in Christopher Nolan's trilogy, but that doesn't mean we've seen the last of Batman. The Caped Crusader returns for an all-new DC Universe animated original movie, "Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1," and we've got the trailer for you right here, courtesy of MTV Geek.

Peter Weller, the actor most famous for playing the titular character in "RoboCop," lends his voice as the aged Batman in this movie adapted from Frank Miller's graphic novel "The Dark Knight Returns." The movie follows Batman 10 years after hanging up his cape, turning to race cars and alcohol as Gotham is overrun by gangs of criminals called The Mutants. After Harvey Dent as Two-Face returns and he gains Robin as a sidekick, the Dark Knight is inspired to protect Gotham once again. Get More »

Years from now, Christian Bale's turn as Batman may be most remembered for his signature deep, husky voice. It seems only fitting that one of America's favorite entertainers lends his equally unmistakable voice to a trailer for "The Dark Knight Rises."

The beloved pop culture icon Pee-wee Herman dubs all the voices in a "Dark Knight Rises" trailer, complete with his iconic scream and "Huh, Huh, Huh, Huh" laugh.

While this "new" trailer, which premiered on Wednesday night's "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," won't give you any more clues into what you can expect from the mysterious "Dark Knight Rises," and it especially won't help you better understand Bane's muffled voice, it certainly will have you looking at the movie in a new, more hilarious way.
