I enjoyed this parody The Dark Knight Rises video more – much more – than I enjoyed the movie. The folks at How It Should Have Ended did an animated cartoon that pokes fun at all the silliness in Christopher Nolan’s last Batman movie. Share: Blog this!

While Cronenberg was promoting his latest movie, Cosmopolis, a reporter asked him about the trend toward [...]

Despite the shooting rampage at a midnight showing in Colorado that left 12 people dead and 70 people wounded, The Dark Knight Rises earned an estimated $162 million over the weekend, putting the movie behind only Marvel’s The Avengers and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 among highest openings ever (not adjusted for inflation).

Bane, famously, is the character who broke Batman’s back in the comic books. This has led to all sorts of speculation about what will happen in the upcoming Dark Knight Rises. Will Batman die?

Further fueling the speculation: Christopher Nolan has made it clear from the beginning that his third Batman movie as director/co-writer – the upcoming Dark Knight Rises – would [...]
