Welcome to TV's only source for all the stuff you care about from the coolest viral videos to the hottest new gadgets, comics and movies. Attack of the Show gets it before it gets out.


We have not quite made our way through the storm of parodies for Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" just yet.

However, after the version in which the Star Wars films were edited to sing the song, you just knew that a Star Trek version was as inevitable as the sunrise.

Thus, we have this Star Trek: The Next Generation-centric, mashup, which is everything that you would expect...and is still so damn funny, you'll swear you saw "five lights" instead of four.

The Avengers 2 Could Have A Release Date

The sequel to Marvel's $1.5 billion-grossing powerhouse mega-franchise, The Avengers might just have a date set.

According to insiders speaking to MTV News, May 1, 2015 could be the magic date that the team once again assembles to combat...whatever gigantic threat, possibly of cosmic proportions that could be in store for Earth in the Marvel movieverse.

While director, Joss Whedon is set to return, the dance cards for each member of the team are pretty much set with Iron Man 3 (May 3, 2013), Thor: The Dark World (November 8, 2013), and Captain America: The Winter Soldier (April 4, 2014), each of which will likely have cameos from other members like Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury, Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye, and Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow. A three-year-window from this past May's first film would be reasonable and realistic considering all of that.

Marvel apparently has it all worked out, but how?

Not All Star Wars Tattoos Are Cool

"Nooooo" is exactly what any sane person would scream after waking up hungover and seeing THAT resting on their cheek.

It always gets said that extremely visible tattoos limit one's career options, but in this guy's case, seeing as the Galactic Empire doesn't actually exist in real life, success in his career prospects are about as likely as Alderaan surviving the Death Star.


The Sound Of Bane

The Sound Of Bane

Notable numbers like "How Do You Solve A Problem Like Batman?," "These Are A Few Of My Favorite Reckonings," and "Climb Every Prison Wall" helped Bane's new musical relax Gotham's ears as they faced annihilation at his hands.

You all have his permission to die...trying to get to the nearest limited-engagement performance as quick as possible.


Stormtrooper Having An R2-Becue

Stormtrooper Having An R2-Becue

After finally finding one of the droids he was looking for, this Stormtrooper decided to take advantage of its features and throw a celebratory barbecue with the other troopers stuck guarding sand, scum, and villainy on Tatooine.

The beers and bantha burgers were served all through the night until someone thought it was a good idea to hold a shooting contest. -- That pretty much ended the festivities.


Warning: Some spoilerish stuff.

At this point, one's first reaction to a parody of Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" is something along the lines of "really? again?!"

However, this one focusing on the show-stealing character of The Dark Knight Rises, Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Blake deserves its place among the best of the ever-growing "Call Me Maybe" genre.

The nosy, idealistic cop leads you on a Gotham-tastic musical number as he tries (as he does in the film) to get Bruce Wayne off his lazy, creepy shut-in ass and fight some bad guys, already.

It's Okay Since Bane Says It's Okay

Worry not if the prices at this store are your wallet's reckoning.

Sure, high prices for stuff you could get online for way less are powerful agents to the uninitiated, but according to Bane, who IS initiated, it's okay to lift your disposable income and break it over your knee because of an ancient philosophy taught to him in the League of Shadows called "YOLO."


If this epic stop-motion fan-film proves anything, it's that ridiculously-expensive Hot Toys action figures, a video camera, and some ingenuity can make one hell of a Batman story...in which he turns out to be a cyborg with cannons on his hands.

Filmmakers, Derek Kwok and Henri Wong do an amazing job capturing the action in this dream-like tribute to Christopher Nolan's Batman films, even including a nod to the groundbreaking 1989 Tim Burton rendition that dances with the devil in the pale moonlight.

The cheating scandal that has left the world of emo-vampire-film fans devastated and inconsolable may actually have a reasonable explanation.

Now, thanks to impressionist, Laura McDonald, some light may have been shed on why Kristen Stewart threw away the greatest thing to ever happen vicariously to teenage girls and middle-aged-women living with 80 cats who are into incense candles.

Perhaps, a blessing in disguise, this tragic parting of the ways may shed light on "boneritis" awareness.

Batman Breaks Out The Batplow!

Posted August 6, 2012 - By Joseph Baxter

Batman Breaks Out The Batplow!

In the nonexistent fourth Batman film, The Dark Knight Rices, Lucius Fox tenders his resignation from Wayne Enterprises, leaving Batman's crime-fighting gadgets to take a bit of a tumble in the departments of "coolness" and "effectiveness."

Although, in keeping with consistency, this vehicle he's pushing is also "not a car."
