The Giant Lego Batcave

So, you really love Batman.  You also, as it happens, really love Lego.  What’s the result?

Well according to Carlyle Livingston II and Wayne Hussey, the answer is simple.  Construct a huge – and I mean huge - LEGO Batcave, complete with lighting effects.

Batman Inspired Home Theater

Recession?  What recession.

It’s when you see things like this that it occurs to you that some people maybe have a little too much spare cash.

Elite Home Theater Seating have posted their Theater of the Month and it’s inspired by The Dark Knight Rises.  Although they didn’t build it, they did help design it. 

I dunno about you, but I think this is insane.

“For this months “Theater of the Month”, we bring you our newest concept, the Dark Knight Theater. Our goal was to fuse together the cozy elements of Wayne Manor, with the Art Deco styling of Gotham City.”

Bale visits shooting victims

The Dark Knight Rises star Christian Bale – who plays Batman – has dropped in on some of the victims of the tragic shootings in Colorado last week.

According to Warner Bros, the visit was entirely Bale’s choice.  He was not acting on their behalf, and indeed, Bale personally contacted the hospital and asked to visit, and specifically requested the media not be notified.

Aurora Medical Center’s President Bill Voloch said, “The patients were really happy to meet Bale. They are obviously big fans of his movies.  It was good for the patients. We hope it was therapeutic for them, and all the staff really appreciated him coming.”

The Batman actor spent over two and a half hours at the Aurora medical facility.

Christopher Nolan’s Inception Poster Released

If you’re looking for how to copy one of your previous movie’s publicity material, look no further than the example of Christopher Nolan with his new movie Inception.

The poster above is strikingly similar to another poster produced for his last hit, The Dark Knight.  See below.

Featured Discussion: Is ‘The Dark Knight’ overrated?

jokertrailer2l
This  featured discussion is an experimental idea on Sci-Fi Heaven.  It’s intended to be like a forum thread rather than your traditional blog post.

It’s been a few weeks since The Dark Knight splashed onto our home screens in DVD and Blu-Ray glory, and so hopefully those of you who didn’t see the movie an unhealthy number of times in the cinemas now have had the chance to do so.

Now that the hype has settled, and the dust begins to form on top of what is widely considered to be a modern day masterpiece, there have been one or two voices in the distance crying out to be heard.  They proclaim The Dark Knight to be overrated: a over-hyped piece of cinema that’s simply too dark to be enjoyed.  Some say it’s just not that good.

So what’s it to be?  Is The Dark Knight truly a 21st Century wonder that will sit atop the favourite lists of film critics for decades to come, or is it simply much ado about nothing: a film made famous in no small part by the very tragic passing away of Heath Ledger.  Is that too cynical?

Discuss.
