Gotham Academy is a new title from DC Comics that finally deals with a question I know we’ve all had — especially while watching The Dark Knight — what is it like to grow up in Gotham? There is the mob scene, plus a bunch of strange, costumed criminals constantly breaking out of the insane asylum and running amok, and a really, really rich dude* who dresses up like a bat and tries to fight the tidal wave of crime. That has got to lead to a messed up childhood and adolescence, right? Written by Becky Cloonan and Brendan Fletcher with art by Karl Kerschl, Gotham Academy #1 hit shelves today, and it sounds wicked fun. Read the official synopsis, then watch this video interview with the creative team at Comic-Con.
Welcome To Gotham Academy! Gotham City’s most prestigious prep school is a very weird place. It’s got a spooky campus, »

The Oscars for Best Sound Mixing and Best Sound Editing tend to favor films that feature a lot of loud action, like past winners "Skyfall," "Inception," "The Hurt Locker," "The Dark Knight," and "The Bourne Ultimatum." The categories also tend to award the same films: in the past 10 years, Mixing and Editing matched six times, including last year's pair of wins for "Gravity." -Break- Will 'Interstellar' be the 'grandest adventure' ever on film? When the two categories split, it's usually because there's a musical in the running. Musicals tend to win the Sound Mixing award, but not Sound Editing, as has been the case for "Les Miserables," "Dreamgirls," and "Ray" in the past decade. Strong support from the academy overall also helps; these categories often go to the most action-packed Best Picture contenders, like "Zero Dar..."' »
Ben Affleck is continuing his promotional tour for the upcoming adaptation Gone Girl, appearing on Comedy Central's The Daily Show, where host Jon Stewart naturally turned the talk towards the actor's highly-anticipated turn as Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The interview segment doesn't include any concrete information about director Zack Snyder's superhero adventure, where Ben Affleck's Batman will square off against Henry Cavill's Superman, a battle that fans will likely be discussing for years after the film hits theaters in March 2016. However, Jon Stewart does offer his theory about why Superman will emerge victorious against The Dark Knight, using the logic that Superman's laser vision and the ability to fly is no match for Batman and his "utility belt."
Here's what Jon Stewart had to say during a portion of the interview.
"No matter how good you do, he can fly. You're in »
“Interstellar” will pit Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway against an extraterrestrial tidal wave — and it's scarier than any little green men that have populated the big screen in the past.

South Park is about to begin its 18th season in the UK, and despite nearly two decades of episodes, it doesn't show any sign of getting 'lame', as Cartman might say.
To celebrate its return, we have chosen our personal favourite 25 from its first 247 episodes.
25. Woodland Critter Christmas - Season 8
A thoroughly bizarre but memorable episode, in which Stan finds himself in the middle of the woods with a bunch of seemingly cute woodland animals. With an irritating voiceover narrating his every move, the critters turn out to be the most evil creatures known to man. Things are pretty f**ked right here, as he would say. Eventually, it is revealed that Cartman is the creator of such an awful story, and it's all just so »
So now we now Christopher Nolan's Interstellar will not only be 169 minutes long, but it will yet again be a PG-13 rated film from the director of The Dark Knight trilogy, not that that's much of a surprise and the rating reason itself isn't exactly all that exciting. Also in today's bulletin we have a pair of PG-rated animated features in Disney's Big Hero 6 and Dreamworks Animation's Penguins of Madagascar while the Keanu Reeves'-led hitman feature John Wick scores a rather hard-r rating. The complete bulletin follows. Big Hero 6 Rated PG For action and peril, some rude humor, and thematic elements. Release Date: November 7, 2014 The Blue Room Rated R For sexual content including graphic nudity. Freeway Crack In The System Rated R For drug content and language including some sexual references. God The Father Rated R For violent images. Note: Intends To Appeal Interstellar Rated »

Recently, MTV chatted up "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" Batman star, Ben Affleck, and served up some small description details for the movie by confirming that it's definitely taking notes from Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns" video (below). In the clip, they asked Ben if Batman v Superman was influenced by The Dark Knight Returns, and he replied with: "I do think Zack Snyder was heavily influenced by The Dark Knight Returns. Everyone’s influenced by that. It’s the seminal work. I don’t think there’s any Batman movies that have been made without drawing from that book because it’s so good. If you’re smart you steal from the best." Check it out,below. The movie stars: Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent and Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Ma Kent, »
Back in July during the San Diego Comic-Con, Warner Bros. gave fans in attendance in Hall H a sneak peek at 2016’s DC ensemble Batman v Superman by showcasing footage from the film, along with promotional images of Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel, Gal Gadot’s Amazon Princess and Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight. We’ve seen high-resolution, official versions of the character images for Superman and Wonder Woman, but so far Batman has been kept under wraps. Well, thanks to BatmanvSuperman2016 on Instagram (via Cbm), we now have a low-quality look at The Dark Knight in what appears to be a blue and grey Batsuit. Take a look…
To be totally honest, apart from the colouring it’s not much better than the snap that made its way online during Sdcc, so let’s hope we get an official release soon…

Ben Affleck is currently doing the press tour for his new film Gone Girl, and he can't escape the questions about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. That's got to be a little annoying for him, but he does throw a few little things here and there to make the fans happy. During an interview with MTV, the actor was asked about the influence of Frank MIller's The Dark Knight Returns on the film he's making, and he said,
"Yeah, I don't want to answer too many Batman questions because it is a Gone Girl thing, but I will say that I think Zack [Snyder] was heavily influenced by that. I think everyone's heavily influenced by that...that's the seminal work. So, I don't think that there's any of these which have been made that haven't drawn from that book because it's so good. So, you know, I think if »

After doubling as Gotham City in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy and as Metropolis in last year's Man of Steel, Warner Bros. is using the city of Chicago once again for the highly-anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Chicago's Fox 32 reports that the production will shift from Detroit to downtown Chicago in early November, with a shoot lasting four or five days, where both Ben Affleck's Batman and Henry Cavill's Superman are said to be "duking it out." The city will be doubling for Metropolis in these scenes, although it isn't known yet if they plan on shooting any Gotham sequences while they're in town as well. The shooting will then shift to surrounding areas of the Windy City for a week and a half.
It isn't known yet which "surrounding areas" of Chicago will be used in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. It's »

What’s up folks? Thanks to an overwhelmingly positive response from you guys on my last article, I started to wonder… why should Marvel get all the fun? Cited by many as the series that forever changed the comic-book movie industry, Christopher Nolan’s dark and gritty trilogy has always been a favourite of mine. Full of heartwarming emotion, clever symbolism, memorable quotes and some fantastic villains, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises all rank amongst my Top 10 CBMs of all time. Scroll down to check out some of my favourite moments from the trilogy below… Honourable Mentions Ra's Trains Bruce, Batman Begins “Theatricality and deception are powerful agents. You must become more than just a man in the mind of your opponents.” – Ra's Al Ghul Despite having always been the ‘forgotten child’ of the trilogy, I’ve always found Batman Begins matches up to its sequels in almost every department. »
