Dark Knight Joker theory

It sounds like the internet must have some kind of obsession with turning heroes to villains and vice versa. Hot on the heels of a video essay saying that Daniel LaRusso was actually the villain in The Karate Kid, and a fanmade trailer that turns Harry Potter into the villain of the fantasy franchise, a new fan theory for The Dark Knight has proposed that The Joker could be considered the hero truly responsible for saving Gotham City instead of Batman.

The new theory lays out some pretty compelling evidence for how the seemingly anarchistic plans of The Joker are actually all part of a plan to clean up the corruption of Gotham City, from the police department to its latest vigilante.

Iron Giant 2

Just last week brought the trailer for The Iron Giant: Signature Edition, a new Blu-Ray release of the 1999 animated film from The Incredibles director Brad Bird, which will also be hitting theaters for a couple days this fall. And if one of the film’s stars is to be believed, this re-release of the movie might be a way of testing the waters for a forthcoming sequel.

For those who don’t know, Vin Diesel was the voice of the titular giant robot who crash lands on Earth and befriends a young boy, making for quite the charming and unique update of the familiar E.T. The Extra Terrestrial tale. And Diesel recently took to his Facebook page to post the Signature Edition trailer, and he teased that Warner Bros. might be on the verge of making The Iron Giant 2 happen. Read More »

Harry Potter as a villain

Just recently, a video essay turned the beloved 80s movie The Karate Kid on its be proposing that protagonist Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) was actually the villain in the movie, not Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka). There were some pretty convincing and compelling arguments to be made that LaRusso isn’t exactly a positive figure for a hero. But sometimes that’s how it works in storytelling.

Now a new fanmade trailer has taken a more modern hero and made him look like the villain. It’s no secret that Harry Potter is the hero of the book and film series that bares his name in each and every title, but a new fanmade trailer uses some clever edits to show Harry Potter as a villain instead.

Key and Peele Gremlins 2

Let’s get one thing straight: Gremlins 2 is a very funny film with a hell of a lot of energy, and one of the best jokes on the studio idea of sequel creation that has ever been made. I love the movie. You can’t ding Gremlins 2 for being ridiculous and excessive, because it knows it is excessive. That’s the entire point of the film.

That doesn’t mean this Key and Peele sketch about the creation of Gremlins 2 isn’t hilarious, because many of same jokes within could be applied to a lot of films that aren’t nearly as entertaining as Joe Dante’s 1990 sequel to his original 1984 film. Jordan Peele plays “the hollywood sequel doctor,” who goes from observing the Gremlins 2 writer’s room brainstorming session to taking it over and pushing things in absurd directions that will be familiar to anyone who has seen the film.

Iron Giant trailer

Brad Bird‘s first feature The Iron Giant didn’t make a big splash upon its release in 1999. Warner Bros. didn’t seem to know how to market the film, and with the internet publicity machine only in its first formative stage, some of the tools that can help raise awareness of a film in 2015 were not yet in place.

The Iron Giant resonated with nearly everyone who did see the film, at least, and over the years it has been celebrated as a new classic in hand-drawn animation and science fiction. The good news is that Warner Bros. is planning a brief new theatrical release for a version of the film called The Iron Giant: Signature Edition, with a bit of new footage. There’s a new Iron Giant trailer to advertise the September release, which you can watch below. Read More »

Mad Max Fury Road outline

For us in the audience, Mad Max: Fury Road felt thrillingly new when it raced into theaters this summer. But for director George Miller, it was the culmination of an idea that had been kicking around in his head for nearly two decades. A new book, The Art of Mad Max: Fury Road, shows us Miller’s original handwritten outline for the movie, dating all the way back to 1997.

Of course, now that Mad Max: Fury Road is actually out, it’s inspired its own wave of creativity, this time from the fans who fell for it in cinemas. One of the most stunning pieces of fan art we’ve seen retells Miller’s saga in — of all things — ancient Egyptian style. After the jump, see Miller’s original Fury Road outline and an Egyptian-style Fury Road reinterpretation.  Read More »
