I always love it when a few random videos pique my interest and then a third comes along and I can throw them all together into a single post.
Batman: Dark Knightfall
Directors Derek Kwok and Henri Wong created this impressive stop-motion animated tribute to Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy using Hot Toys action figures. I’m not sure what’s more impressive the effort or the incredible detail of the figures.
Batman: Puppet Master
This fan film picks up where The Dark Knight left off. Batman is “is pushed to his limits as a new crime wave hits Gotham. Batman’s search to find who’s responsible leads him to a showdown with the masochistic serial killer Victor Zsasz. Meanwhile Gotham’s newest crime boss, a mysterious figure known as Scarface, has an meeting with Edward Nigma, an FBI agent, sworn to bring down Batman at all costs.” [via]
The 1930’s Film Noir Inspiration for Batman
According to Uproxx, The Bat Whispers, a 1930 noir thriller, is thought to have been Bob Kane’s inspiration for the Batman character. So of course, someone went and dubbed in Hans Zimmer’s score onto the existing footage of the movie to make it more Batman-y.
In all three videos, it is evident that Hans Zimmer’s compositions for The Dark Knight Trilogy was the real star.
