We all remember the viral video from 2007 in which a young boy is bitten by his baby brother, Charlie. “Charlie Bit Me” quickly became an internet sensation and was even remixed into various musical interpretations.
Well, seven years later, late night host Jimmy Kimmel has put together an epic trailer for a mock-film entitled, Bitman Begins — a clear knock-off of Christopher Nolan’s, Batman Begins.
Bitman Begins tells the story of the older brother, years later, as he now seeks vengeance upon Charlie for that fateful day when they were mere children. The trailer stars brothers, Chris Hemsworth and Liam Hemsworth, as well as Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks. Check the video out below!
The Gold Box spotlight deal of the day over at Amazon today is Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy box set for 62% off on Blu-ray for $19.99 (down from $52.99) and DVD for $14.99 (down from $38.99).
Both sets contain all three films in the Dark Knight Trilogy — Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises — along with bonus material for each title, as well as a 64-page version of The Art and Making of The Dark Knight Trilogy book.
Hitting stores on Tuesday, The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector’s Edition Blu-ray box set features each movie from the Christopher Nolan-directed trilogy that broke global box office records and became one of the touchstones for the modern superhero event movie and their original BR bonus features spread out over five discs. Exclusive to this collection is a bonus sixth disc containing several newly-produced supplements including a 25-minute conversation between Nolan and director Richard Donner (Superman: The Movie) and the feature-length documentary The Fire Rises: The Creation and Impact of The Dark Knight Trilogy.
In the section of the new doc devoted to the casting process for the trilogy fans of Nolan’s Bat-films will be surprised to find Christian Bale‘s audition for the title role in 2005’s Batman Begins. You can watch it here below.
If you were the one of many who watched The Dark Knight Rises in glorious IMAX, then you may have noticed the genius music and the booming sounds coming from explosions, The Bat hovering over Gotham City, and Bane’s terrifying voice. And all of that came together perfectly thanks in part to director Christopher Nolan, music composer Hans Zimmer, and sound editor/sound designer Richard King. Now Soundworks Collection has released a video of how it all came together and you can check it out below.
King reveals that Nolan was playing this one pretty close to the chest, and went as far as not revealing the last few pages of the script to those who were involved with the filmmaking process. Despite not knowing how the film was going to end, King praises Nolan for being very involved with the science of the sound for The Dark Knight Rises. The sound editor also talked about how the different sounds pieced together the different elements (The Bat, Bane, etc.) of the film.
The book also contains removable blueprints, cards, stickers, a bonus disc containing 14 high-resolution images, and something that’s guaranteed to be of great importance to the hardcore Bat-geeks out there: a detailed map of the cinematic Gotham City.
