Irish Mathematicians Find A Way To Make Batman’s Cape

20 February 2017 5:12 AM, PST | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

As we all know, clothes make the man, so a new formula coming out of Nui Galway means that very soon we can all be dressing as Batman......o.k. that is a bit of a stretch, but the formula, the result of a collaboration between Irish and Italian mathematicians, works out how much voltage soft conductive or ‘dielectric’ membranes can take before they break. Up until now, it was impossible to know what the breaking point of these materials was, and if this sounds familiar, this exact method was used to construct Batman’s cape in Batman Begins. Let Dr. Michael Destrade at the school of Mathematics, Statistics, and Applied Mathematics in Nui Galway explain how it works: If you can remember the scene in Batman Begins where this huge bat cape emerges from a tiny folded piece of material, that’s the kind of technology which is being »

3 Reasons Season 6 Of Arrow Will Be Its Last

19 February 2017 1:12 PM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

Since the Mid-Season Finale of Arrow, we haven't seen much of Prometheus.  The first half of the season brought hope back to viewers as the story line was reflective of Seasons 1 and 2.  With the CW confirming Arrow for a 6th Season the writers must fix some things in order to avoid it being their last.  

3. Focus And Pacing

Photos Courtesy of the CW/DC. 

This has always been my main issue with Arrow.  Don't get me wrong, I love the show and want it to succeed, but beginning with Season 3, secondary characters have received too much of the focus.  I completely understand that in order to take a character from flat to round, they must have the screen time to be developed, which I agree with.  

What I have the issue with is how the writers have balanced this development.  In Season 1, Oliver was The character.  Yes, Diggle, Tommy, Laurel, »

Batman Begins gets an Honest Trailer

15 February 2017 8:55 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the Caped Crusader currently sitting atop the box office once again with Warner Bros.The Lego Batman Movie, Screen Junkies has delved into the Bat-back catalogue to give the Honest Trailer treatment to Christopher Nolan’s acclaimed 2005 reboot Batman Begins.

“After Joel Schumacher made Batman silly, but before Zack Snyder made him a joke, Chris Nolan made a movie that got the Dark Knight just right…”

Check out the Honest Trailer here…

In the irreverent spirit of fun that made “The Lego® Movie” a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – Lego Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, »

Honest Trailer For Batman Begins Compares The Dark Knight To Adam West's Caped Crusader

15 February 2017 6:31 AM, PST | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Following the mess that was Batman and Robin, Batman Begins was obviously just what the franchise needed back in 2005. Providing a grounded take on the Dark Knight, it led to a trilogy which has since been hailed as one of the greatest of all-time, but that hasn't stopped it from getting the Honest Trailers treatment! While the video below has plenty of good things to say, it also doesn't shy away from the fact that Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale's Batman was something of a killer.  The hero's decision to leave Ra's al Ghul to die in that train is one which fans have talked about nearly as much (well, maybe not) as Superman breaking General Zod's neck in Man of Steel, and yeah, I guess it technically was manslaughter! Anyway, check out this Honest trailer below and then feel free to let us know your thoughts on it in the comments section. »

An Honest Trailer for Batman Begins

15 February 2017 5:20 AM, PST | | See recent news »

There’s been an obscene amount of Batman news going on this week which is why it was the perfect time for Screenjunkies to bring us an honest trailer for Batman Begins.  With all of the news that Ben Affleck isn’t even going to act, let alone direct the solo Batman movie as well as Lego Batman film coming out, it’s time to be taken back to a place where Christopher Nolan resurrected the Batman franchise in the best way possible: by bringing us Christian Bale in Batman Begins. You might remember that Batman movies were becoming foolish and almost comical.

With The Lego Batman Movie topping the box office this past weekend, and Ben Affleck leaving The Batman as director (and possibly as the star according to a new rumor), there has been plenty of discussion about The Dark Knight lately.

As the saga around “The Batman” continues to unfold, lets go back to the halcyon days of 2005, when a filmmaker who was still proving his chops, Christopher Nolan, was given a modest budget and the keys the franchise. The result? One of the greatest Batman movies ever made.

Screen Junkies take a look at “Batman Begins” in their latest Honest Trailer, and as they rightly declare, this is one movie that got The Dark Knight just right.

'Batman Begins' Finally Gets an Honest Trailer

This is the one the people have been waiting for.

Honest Trailers has finally completed its take on The Dark Knight trilogy — and it saved the first for last with 2005's Batman Begins getting the treatment.

The trailer comes years after 2012's The Dark Knight Honest Trailer broke ground for the series as the first movie its gravelly voiced narrator had to admit was actually good. It's take on The Dark Knight Rises take a few months later was much less kind.

Lego Batman Is The Hero Hollywood Needs Right Now

11 February 2017 8:44 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Henry Bevan on why Lego Batman is the hero Hollywood needs right now…

The Joker is Batman’s greatest enemy, and he has been almost since the start. Batman may have the best roster of rogues (rivalled only by Spider-Man), but nothing gets Bat-fans excited more than a tussle with the Clown Prince of Crime. A mere whisper of his presence, like the ending of Batman Begins, is enough to whip up a frenzy. Chris McKay and the folks over at Warner Bros. Animation understand this. They also understand how ridiculous the Batman mythology is. This is, after all, a man dressed as a bat fighting a man dressed as a clown.

In The Lego Batman Movie, Batman and the Joker are jilted lovers (“I like to fight around”). The Joker, voiced by Zack Galifianakis, only wants Batman’s (Will Arnett) attention. It is a spot-on interpretation that encapsulates and laughs at their relationship. »

The Lego Batman Movie: references and Easter Egg guide

The movie, TV show, cartoon and comic references of The Lego Batman Movie...

This article contains major The Lego Batman Movie spoilers.

Holy plastic building blocks, Batman! Almost everything really was awesome about The Lego Batman Movie. After years of dark nights and grim glares at other superheroes, the newest adventure of the Caped Crusader, as voiced by Will Arnett’s perfectly overdone gravel, was a breath of fresh air. Not afraid to let Batman’s sidekicks have fun - even if our cantankerous main guy still prefers to wear only black and sing about “darkness” - The Lego Batman Movie is poised to entertain Bat-fans of all Bat-ages.

Still one of its best gags is its shameless (and relentless) use of references, cutaways, and in-jokes to overstuff its narrative with more meta-humor than the most unwieldy episode of Community. As a consequence, it’s easy to »

Batman at the Movies – The Films That Never Were

10 February 2017 6:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black on the Batman films that never were…

One of the most lucrative and successful movie franchises in cinematic history, Batman prefigured the current superhero franchise craze and set the standard after Tim Burton’s 1989 picture established a succession of films which changed the long-held perception of Batman on screen as a camp throwback to his 1960’s colourful incarnation. As The Lego Batman Movie debuts, launching the Caped Crusader into a new animated dimension, it’s interesting to consider the numerous Batman projects that never made it out of development hell, because even though we’ve had the Christopher Nolan trilogy in recent years which sent the character into the stratosphere, it’s not always been plain sailing for the Dark Knight.

“But this film happened?!” a million voices all cried out in terror. Yes indeed, last year’s Dawn of Justice, part of the formative and troubled DC Extended Universe, »

Review: 'The Lego Batman Movie' is Gotham City's Finest Hour Yet

7 February 2017 11:21 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Before The Lego Batman Movie, Chris McKay (of Moral Orel, Robot Chicken) was best known as the animation co-director and editor of Phil Lord and Christopher Miller’s 2014 film, The Lego Movie. His work on the critically acclaimed film earned him the American Cinema Editors Eddie Award for Best Edited Feature Film, Animation, as well as an Annie Award nomination for Best Edited Animation Feature Film. Now, McKay will forever be known as the guy who saved Gotham City’s Caped Crusader from a dark and gritty existence with The Lego Batman Movie, perhaps the best film based on a DC Comics property since 2008’s The Dark Knight, and maybe the best pure Batman movie since Nolan's Batman Begins (2005). The story opens with The Joker, voiced by Zach Galifianakis, leading a full-scale attack on Gotham City with Batman's vast Rogues Gallery of bad guys, including heavy hitters Bane (Doug »

The Last Defender Arrives in the Trailer for Iron Fist

7 February 2017 8:16 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The long-awaited trailer for the Marvel/Netflix series, Iron Fist, has finally arrived!  Find out what's in store for Danny Rand when he re-enters society, below!

In just a couple of months, Danny Rand (Finn Jones) will don the bandana and spandex to become Iron Fist.  Since we're too jazzed to wait, Marvel and Netflix have unveiled the first full-length trailer for the final Defender.

Fans of the Netflix series of superheroes will notice all the tie-ins from Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Jessica Jones in this trailer.  Most notably, Madame Gao.  It appears she will be the puppet master behind the initial antagonist.  

While the series looks like it'll be another hit for the Marvel/Netflix deal, I can't help but be reminded of Batman Begins, after watching this trailer.  Billionaire heir to the throne goes missing, learns how to fight in a frozen land, returns to civilization after being presumed dead, »

Batman & Robin had a prop made from 450 Santa wigs

7 February 2017 5:33 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Feb 9, 2017

1997's Batman & Robin needed, for some reason, giant magenta gorillas. Turned out they were made from Santa Claus wigs...

It would be correct to say that very few people pick 1997’s notorious movie Batman & Robin as their favourite Dark Knight adventure. The film wasn’t an outright flop, but the critical slamming it received left the Batman movies in a darker place than usual, and plans for future sequels in tatters. It would take Christopher Nolan’s 2005 adventure, Batman Begins, to bring the series back to life.

Mfr Explores The Dceu's Road To Ruin: Column #5

6 February 2017 8:49 AM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

[Editor's Note: This is a re-post of the last entry in this series. As I prepared for the latest installment, I realized that- through some sort of bizarre technical glitch- this post has disappeared from Lrm Online. The other four remained in place, but this one somehow vanished. I'm preparing Column #6 for later today, so you can reread this in the meantime.]

Welcome back to a special ongoing look at Warner Bros. and how it's handled its DC Comics properties. It's going to be a weekly, ongoing miniseries here at Lrm.

It's suggested that you read the previous entries in the series, as they all build upon one another:

Column #1

Column #2

Column #3

Column #4

Last week, we left off with the arrival of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. The film that began its first real rounds in the cinematic pop culture lexicon way back in 2002, and which gave birth to Batman Begins and Superman Returns– despite the fact neither of those films ended up factoring into the final evolution of the project- finally arrived on March 25, 2016.

Entertainment Weekly #664, back on July 26, 2002 when the project was first being buzzed about.

The film, based on a story by David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight Trilogy) and a final script by Chris Terrio (Argo), was »

Star Wars, Terminator 2, Fantastic Beasts and more: they all have scenes in the trailer, that never made the final film...

More often than you might think, scenes that appear in movie trailer don’t turn up in the finished film. This can leave trailer-loving audience members confused as the credits roll, wondering if they dropped off and missed something important.

A couple of massive movies have done this recently, and the internet has been quick to fill in the blanks with speculation. Fingers have been pointed at tinkering studio bigwigs and extensive reshoots, when the reality is often a little less dramatic: filmmakers always chop some footage in the edit, and they rarely have much involvement in the trailers. »

Warner Bros, DC, The Batman and its director problem

31 January 2017 10:04 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Feb 1, 2017

Ben Affleck’s the latest in a series of directors to bow out of a DC comic book movie. We take a look at a familiar pattern...

In a ninja-like move worthy of the Caped Crusader himself, Ben Affleck has bowed out of The BatmanAffleck will, of course, still star in the title role and serve as producer, but the standalone Batman movie will now need a new director - leaving the position empty mere months before filming was supposed to commence.

The outlet that broke the story, Variety, adds that Affleck’s decision wasn’t related to the recent performance of Live By Night, the period crime film produced, written, directed and starring Ben Affleck. Rather, Affleck says, “I cannot do both jobs to the level they require. I have decided to find a partner in a director who will collaborate with me on this massive film. »
