I’ve come to realize that movie logic is pretty much a more grown up version of cartoon logic. In a movie or cartoon, just about anything could happen. While cartoons typically gloss over inconsistencies, movies sometimes offer a quick line or two to explain these gaping plot holes. Sometimes, they don’t. While it’s pretty much universally understood that what happens in the movies doesn’t actually happen in real life, we can’t help but nitpick.
Enter CinemaSins who continue to point out film flaws that have been bugging many a viewer since a film’s release. This time around, they point out everything wrong with The Dark Knight. Does this lessen my enjoyment of the movie? No, but I’m glad there’s other people in the world who noticed all this inconsistencies.
Can they do the Dark Knight Rises next and just rip apart Bruce Wayne’s prompt return to Gotham City? Because really, that was messed up.
If you’re ever wondered what it was like to go to high school with your fave superheroes and villains of Gotham City, now you can…in the prequel to the Dark Knight Trilogy called Gotham High.
Directed by Christopher Nolan’s son Oliver, the trailer for this new and exciting film features all the cliches that would have been present in your fav 90s flicks. From school dances to crushes on boys, who wouldn’t want to relive the past when a very sexy and mysterious Bruce Wayne is involved?
*Sigh* If only this was a real movie…
I’ve heard horror stories about Apple Maps recently but luckily I haven’t run into any myself because I have a BlackBerry (haha, FAIL). Anyway, you shouldn’t feel so bad about getting lost with the system because even Batman does sometimes.
In this parody trailer for The Dark Knight, Batman tries to navigate his way to his true love Rachel but just can’t seem to find the way because Siri keeps sending him in the wrong direction (bitch). The trailer is making fun of the tough go Apple has been having lately with their mapping system, since distancing from Google. The absolute best part of this trailer is that Batman comes off as a grumpy old, technologically daft guy, which is underscored by the chirpy Apple music in the background. Yup. Apple Maps will do that to the best of us…
Christopher Nolan’s Batman series was pretty awesome. But what if Batman was secretly a cookie monster?
In this video, Cookie Monster Batman meets with Commissioner Gordon (Gary Oldman) to make a very special request. But when the two can’t come to an agreement, it’s up to Cookie Monster Batman to save the world on his own.
After attempting to blow up Gotham City with a nuclear warhead, Bane has been ordered to do a significant amount of community service. The extra time has allowed to evil villain to reassess his purpose in life and transform into a better human being through the “Fresh Start” program.
In this mockumentary directed by Nick Corirossi and starring Chris Kattan, we see how Bane’s life has changed since The Dark Knight. His evolution is a real inspiration to us all. Change is possible people!!
It seems as though everywhere you look these days, there’s an ad for a new action-superhero movie. We most recently got The Amazing Spiderman and The Dark Knight. (BTW which one did you prefer)?
With all these trilogies going on, people go totally overboard and get really into it; dressing up as Peter Parker or even accessorize with a Batman cape — just to watch the movie in theatres. But if you’re extremely annoyed because your boyfriend rather go watch that instead of the new Nicholas Sparks’ chick-flick, don’t worry. There’s something here to fit your needs. It’s a support group for people who don’t like superhero movies.
Would you argue that Magic Mike is a superhero movie cause Channing Tatum is super-hot?
This Batpod was modeled after the badass motorcycle in The Dark Knight. It’s clear that every transportation committee should be putting all their resources into this technology right now. Vietnam: 1. Your move world.
I’m usually skeptical when I see parodies of one person acting out several roles but Alex Farnham NAILS IT. In the newest video on his YouTube page DamItsGood808, he impersonates a slew of actors auditioning for The Dark Knight. Included is Russell Brand, Mark Wahlberg and Leonardo DiCaprio. It’s not really a battle here people. Ryan Gosling wins at life.
Spider-Man is certainly getting his share of attention these days considering The Amazing Spider-Man was just released in theatres. But he shouldn’t boast too much because The Dark Knight Rises will be in theatres on July 20. The two heroes bumped into each other in Toronto and after spewing some angry dialogue at each other, they literally started fighting in Dundas Square, Pizza Pizza the TTC and on Queen Street to prove who’s more badass.
I don’t know what I’d do if I was on the subway, half-heartedly attempting to finish my crossword when all of a sudden Spider-Man and Batman start brawling in my peripheral vision. I’d probably try not to stare too much during such an intense confrontation and instead sneakily pull out my camera so I could be all like “Yo, I totally just saw Batman and Spider-Man take knocks at each other on the train” to my non-believer friends (shun).
I can’t say with certainty who wins this battle — while Spider-Man has heart you really don’t want to mess with Batman because he’s so damn cool and his voice is kind of scary.
The video was posted on TheSeanWardShow, where you can also watch Batman meet Chad Vader and the Joker.

“The Dark Knight” has joined an exclusive club: movies that have crossed the $1 billion mark in worldwide revenues.
Warner Bros. announced Friday that Christopher Nolan’s Batman sequel, which has eight nods going into this weekend’s Oscars, has accumulated a gross of $1,001,082,160 billion to date.
Those earnings places the movie fourth in highest worldwide grossers of all time.
It comes in just behind “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” at No. 3, “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” at No. 2 and “Titanic,” which is currently the champion at more than $1.8 billion.
Released on July 18 last year, “The Dark Knight” got off to an impressive start by taking in $158.4 million during its opening weekend.
“The Dark Knight” will be re-released in North American cinemas next month, boosting its chances of cracking the $1-billion mark at the worldwide box office.
The top-grossing U.S. film of 2008, which comes out on DVD Tuesday, has already earned $996 million US, according to tracking website Box Office Mojo.
“We wanted to provide one more opportunity for moviegoers to experience it on the big screen as it was meant to be seen,” Dan Fellman, president of Warner Brothers’ U.S. distribution, said in a statement.
The movie’s return to cinemas on Jan. 23 will come a day after the Academy Award nominations are announced.
The re-release is expected to help the movie’s Oscar chances, with the late Heath Ledger and director Christopher Nolan seen as favourites to earn nominations.
If “The Dark Knight” reaches the $1-billion mark, it would become only the fourth film in history to do so, following “Titanic,” “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” and “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.”
“The Dark Knight” has struck gold the second weekend in a row by bringing in an estimated $75.6 million this weekend, reports E! News.
Christopher Nolan’s sequel to 2005’s “Batman Begins” has surpassed the $300 million mark domestically in record time and a $400 million overall take is around the corner.
“Certainly, $400 million, boom, that’s going to happen,” said Media by Numbers box office analyst Paul Dergarabedian.
“The trajectory it’s on has never before been seen. This is absolutely unprecedented.”
The movie’s second-weekend gross was, per studio estimates, the biggest ever, despite the usual 50 percent or so drop in business.
Although “The Dark Knight” has yet to surpass the $400 million mark, Dergarabedian predicts the movie will bring in that amount in about a week from now, or 18 days after its release. In 2004, it took “Shrek 2” about 43 days to reach $400 million— a mark that continues to be the Hollywood benchmark.
Coming in second place was Will Ferrell’s “Step Brothers” which brought in an impressive 30 million while “X-Files: I Want to Believe” brought in a somewhat disappointing 10.2 million.
“The Dark Knight” smashed box office records with a $155.3 million opening weekend total—beating “Spider-Man 3” as the movie with the biggest weekend opening— per Exhibitor Relations Co. estimates, reports E! News.
On Friday alone, “The Dark Knight” made $66.4 million, setting the record for biggest-ever single day.
“Some people probably stayed away [to avoid] the crowds,” Exhibitor Relations’ Jeff Bock told E! News.
“The Dark Knight” was also the late Heath Ledger’s last big role before his death in January. Curiosity and buzz surrounding the actor’s performance as the legendary foe The Joker probably brought many audience members to the theatres.
“This is really unprecedented, an actor in a blockbuster film dying before the release,” Bock said.
The Christopher Nolan film and the “Batman Begins” sequel continues to receive positive reviews from critics nation wide.
Australian actor Heath Ledger has been confirmed to play the role of the Joker in the next Batman movie. Titled “The Dark Knight,” the film will also star Christian Bale in his second appearance as Bruce Wayne.
E! Online reports that Warner Bros. confirmed the casting on Monday with a statement from returning director Christopher Nolan.
“I’m excited to continue the story we started with ‘Batman Begins,’” said Nolan. “Our challenge in casting the Joker was to find an actor who is not just extraordinarily talented but fearless. Watching Heath Ledger’s interpretation of this iconic character taking on Christian Bale’s Batman is going to be incredible.”
The 27-year-old Ledger is best known for his Oscar-nominated role in last year’s “Brokeback Mountain.” His casting as the Joke has been rumoured for the past three weeks.
The role of the Joker was originally taken on by Jack Nicholson in the first “Batman” movie. Michael Keaton played the caped crusader in that film, as well as the follow-up, “Batman Returns.”
“The Dark Knight” is set to start shooting in early 2007, making a summer 2008 release very likely.
