Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises won't be out until later this month, but if you're fiending for an early hit before then, you can try this low-budget film. I think it captures the essence of Batman and the other characters quite well.

The heated conversation between Bane and Batman might be the highlight of this video. Or maybe it's the snappy car scenes, watching the Batmobile and Batcycle zip through sidewa...I mean streets. Streets. Look how realistic they got Batman's abs, too.

Low budget? Could've fooled me. Enjoy your open thread in Kirk's absence.
