THE LION KING RISES: Dark Knight Rises Trailer Parody

Can you hear that? That’s the vibrations I’m making as I try to contain my excitement sitting here at my desk, failing to quietly count the days until Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises is unleashed on the silver screen this Summer.

The almost unbearable wait is helped when you have wonderfully crafted Parody trailers like this one by Movie Maestro Ten, who has mashed up the 1994 Walt Disney Lion King theatrical trailer with the audio from the Dark Knight Rises. Give it a look, it’ll make you smile.

Behind the Scenes: Batman (1989)

A big tip of the cape and cowl to Quint over at Ain’t It Cool News as well as to Andrew Jackson who provided the behind the scenes photo of Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman. I feel that Batman has been unnecessarily vilified over the years, especially since Christopher Nolan’s films have done such a wonderful job of retelling the mythology. I still defend this film though, Nicholson and Keaton did a fantastic job…it also allowed me turn around and see one of my favorite comic book characters on nearly every product in 1989!
