This year's MTV Movie Awards delivered one of the most awesome surprises for nerds everywhere, and I'm not talking about K-stew having a solo make out party. I'm talking about new "Dark Knight Rises" footage!
The promo revealed at the awards gave us a few new snippets of info, further confirming Batman and Catwoman's dynamic duo-ness, and hyping up Bane all the more; but what I took away from the trailer was the siege upon Gotham. From a pile of GCPD cars 20 feet high, to a band of rebels flooding the streets led by Bane, and of course we can't forget all of the bridges being destroyed in one fell swoop, never have things looked so grim for Wayne's hometown.
"The Dark Knight Rises" is looking to go down in the books as one of the most epic siege movies ever, so in order to whet your appetite before the film's premiere, here are five other totally siege-worthy films.
Do you like awesome movies? Good, because right now the summer of 2012 is shaping up to be one of the most overly-awesome awesome movie summers of all time!
What movies are coming up, you ask? How about a little movie called “The Dark Knight Rises.” Ever hear of it? No? Does "Prometheus" ring a bell, or "The Avengers" (known in some circles as "Fury's Seven")? If none of these flicks get your blood pumping, then you've come to the wrong place. But if you want to see a video that highlights what could be the most awesome summer for movies since 1996 (“Independence Day” anyone?), then click below for this week's Talk Nerdy!
Do you agree with our picks? Is there a contender we overlooked? Did my jokes fall way too flat this week? Let us know in the comments below!
So there I was, staying up way past my bed time, gallivanting around "Arkham City" as the World’s Greatest Detective, when I had my first run in with Mr. Freeze. Suddenly it dawned on me: this guy totally exudes essence of Cranston.
My mind began to whirl with the possibilities and I marveled at how awesome Bryan Cranston would be as Mr. Freeze. I even wrote it down in my iPhone, where all my best ideas go. So with "The Dark Knight Rises" just about wrapped, it’s only a matter of time before Batman is once again rebooted... and this time, I’d like to see the Caped Crusader face off against a Cranston-driven Freeze. Here’s why.
"Kaneeedddaaaaaaaa!!!! Help meeeeee!!!!!"
Those might be the words going through your head when you hear news related to "Akira," director Jaume Collet-Serra's adaptation of the classic anime and manga about a massive nuclear detonation in a future Tokyo and its ramifications fifteen years later. Some major changes from the source material have been made so far, such as Neo-Manhattan subbing in for Neo-Tokyo.
No matter how you feel about the changes, the movie is certainly heating up. Some serious A-list talent is lining up for "Akira," including "Twilight" actress Kristen Stewart, who has reportedly received an offer for the female lead. With casting firming up, now's as good a time as any to take a look at the folks who are supposedly assembling for this sci-fi romp.
Prepare yourselves for magic! The Sorcerer Supreme himself, Dr. Strange, is no doubt on his way to starring in one of your next favorite Marvel movies, but we at MTV News aren’t the only ones with our sights set on the enigmatic master of the mystic arts.
Stan Lee has long been a proponent of the film's creation, and the character even has Patrick Dempsey practicing his incantations in front of his mirror at home. However the newest fan to join the fray is none other than Doc Hammer of "Venture Bros." fame, who recently spoke at New York Comic Con about his lifelong dream of bringing everybody’s favorite magic slinging surgeon to the big screen.
Henry Cavill is putting the man back in Superman. Not only is he sporting a wily muff of facial hair, but he’s rockin’ a gnarly chest beard. These new pictures just released today, courtesy of Crave Online, show the Man of Steel in all of his shirtless glory. Maybe they should change his name to Man of Marble, because he looks like he is cut out of it, amiright?
[Editor's note: That's the last time you'll see "amiright" on Splash Page. Maybe.]
It would seem Superman is getting an early start on his Novembeard. Actor Henry Cavill was recently seen on the "Man of Steel" set sporting a beard that would make even Jack from "Lost" bristle with jealousy.
But just what could the notoriously too-clean-shaven-to-be-human (he's not after all) super hero be doing sporting such scruffy face locks?
The new pictures, courtesy of Socilalite Life, show the Man of Steel not only sporting a beard, but donning a full-fledged hobo ensemble to go with it. Not only that, but he appears to be kickin' it with a mangy street dog. Just what in the name of Krypton is going on here?
