Movie promos aren’t always as honest as we’d like, but even the more misleading ones are generally more fact than fiction. At the very least, they look like they were crafted by folks with a passing familiarity with the film in question.
But I’m not so sure that’s the case for this TV spot promoting the ABC Family premiere of Christopher Nolan‘s Batman Begins. Or rather, a playful romantic drama that bears a striking visual resemblance to Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins. Because surely this “legendary hero” who “fights for family and lives for love” can’t be the Batman, right? Hit the jump to check it out.

One of the most famous scenes in Mary Harron‘s American Psycho turns in on itself in thanks to Funny or Die. The scene in question finds Christan Bale’s character Patrick Bateman pointing out the cultural and musical value of Huey Lewis and the News while preparing to murder a colleague.
Funny or Die’s version puts Huey Lewis into the Bateman role, turning the scene into a psychopathic cultural ouroboros. But why’s “Weird” Al Yankovic in this parody? I think you already know. Read More »
ScreenJunkies has done it again, creating another one of their funny “Honest Trailers” for the upcoming 3D rerelease of Jurassic Park. I personally loved the 3D conversion of this classic Spielberg film (probably the best 3D conversion I’ve seen so far) but its hard not to chuckle at this video lampoon. Watch it now embedded after the jump.

Didn’t get enough jokes on April Fools Day 2013? Here’s one of the better batches that popped up, on Funny or Die. The comedy site jumped on — or attacked — the Veronica Mars bandwagon and made Kickstarter pitch videos for movies based on classic ’90s TV shows. Shows like Sliders, Family Matters, Darkwing Duck, Wings and Dinosaurs. Check out the videos below. Read More »
Sorry, fans of the 2008 comedy Pineapple Express. There’s not a sequel in the works. Instead, what you get on this April Fools Day is a parody trailer featuring all the film’s original stars, and a few other guests. Seth Rogen, James Franco, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson are joined by Jonah Hill (playing someone else) in a trailer for Pineapple Express 2. Check it out below. Read More »
One of the best movie-related April Fools gags I can remember was from a few years ago: ThinkGeek’s Star Wars Tauntaun Sleeping Bag. It was a gross, hilarious idea that got so much attention, Lucasfilm actually allowed the company to make and sell the product.
This year, ThinkGeek is back with another batch of inspired movie related items that you’ll either really want because they’re so clever, or laugh at because they’re so mean. Items such as the Batman Family Car Decal above. Check out more below. Read More »

So much of the buzz surrounding Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers lies in the fact that these aren’t just any good girls gone bad. The film stars former Disney gals Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens as two of the central foursome, adding an even more scandalous edge to the already wild and debauched proceedings. Naturally, any theoretical sequel would have to kick things up a notch with even more wholesome stars getting even more corrupted.
Enter College Humor, who already has a great idea as to how Hollywood could accomplish just that. Their parody video Disney’s Spring Breakers imagines actual Disney princesses — specifically, Cinderella, Snow White, Ariel, and Jasmine — donning their skimpiest bikinis for the craziest trip of their lives. Tagline: “What happens in the Magic Kingdom, stays in the Magic Kingdom.”
Hit the jump to check it out, but be warned that the language makes this somewhat NSFW.

What’s the one thing a ruthless dictator needs if he wants to take over the world? Money, and a lot of it. In today’s modern, connected society, what better way to raise money than from like-minded people on Kickstarter?
On a hilarious new Kickstarter page, Cobra Commander — the leader of the evil terrorist organization Cobra — asks the public to help him raise $21 million needed to rebuild the organization after defeat at the hands of those real American heroes in G.I. Joe.
The page comes at a perfect time, with Jon M. Chu’s G.I. Joe: Retaliation rolling out on March 29. I have a feeling this is decidedly more tongue in cheek than the film. Check out the video below. Read More »
