Tonight On AOTS: Jason Biggs Talks Grassroots, The Dark Knight Collectibles At Mattel

Tonight on Attack of the Show, Mo Mandel and Candace Bailey bring you Jason Biggs live in studio for his new political film, Grassroots, and a look at the new Batman collectibles at Mattel. Plus, we discuss whether or not The Dark Knight Rises is a political film on The Loop and Weston Scott flies a Vietnam era helicopter at OFASTS. Tune in tonight 7/6c for more.

Warning: Bad Language.

How can we expect the The Dark Knight to "rise" if he can't even grasp such a simple concept?

The answer is that we don't. This, above all else might be why Batman ended up taking the blame for Two-Face's crimes. It was a better fate than letting the entire world know what a dumbass he really was.

This is not surprising considering that even Batman doesn't know that he's really Bruce Wayne.

As we gear up for The Dark Knight Rises this weekend, it certainly won't hurt to take an evaluative look at its predecessor, The Dark Knight.

He's the hero Gotham deserves...to spy on people in the bathroom and take blame for stuff based on shady logic convenient to a plot point about silent sacrifice and other complex Kierkegaardian concepts that make you want to mope around the house and shoot jaywalkers in Grand Theft Auto IV all day.

If there's anything that the film has taught us, it's that what evil fears the most is high-tech gadgets of questionable feasibility and grizzled voices. -- The grizzlier the better.

Superman: Man of Steel Teaser Poster

The panel for Superman: Man of Steel wowed fans at Comic-Con over the weekend with a yet-to-be-released teaser trailer. Fans not at the Con got to take some solace with this new killer teaser poster, showing close details of new Superman, Henry Cavill's new, seemingly mesh-armored super-suit.

Director Zack Snyder was still playing coy about the villain situation, even though it is widely-known (or believed, anyway,) that Michael Shannon is escaped Krytonian war criminal, General Zod and Antje Traue is his super-powered lady-friend, Faora. However, this new poster and the reception of the Con footage seems to imply that the Last Son of Krypton is in good hands.

Superman: Man of Steel crashes into theaters with one fist forward on June 14, 2013. Check out the full poster below!

I'm just about as sick as the next person of the barrage of parodies for Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe." However, this one has Star Wars.

Speaking on behalf of the demographic who reads and contributes to this site, we, for the most part, like Star Wars. Therefore, it is rendered okay by virtue of the presence of Star Wars.

So, here's characters from Star Wars edited to sing "Call Me Maybe." 

...Did I mention Star Wars?

Lobo Movie: The Rock Confirms He Could Star

In a bit of news that almost slipped by the barrage of Comic-Con reveals over the weekend, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson revealed via tweet, that the rumors which have him in the running to play DC Comics' badass intergalactic bounty hunter, Lobo are indeed true.

If he does get the part, it would reunite Johnson with his director in the recent 3D effort, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, Brad Peyton, who was appointed to helm Lobo's big screen debut back in April.

Could The Rock be ready to drop the People's Elbow on some of the galaxy's nastiest candy-ass jabronis?

Dirty Laundry: Thomas Jane Returns As The Punisher!

Thomas Jane's one-time go in 2004 as Marvel's gun-toting, tortured, trenchcoat-sporting vigilante, The Punisher was a rather underrated affair that would not end up being continued with a proper sequel, but rather, with a highly-panned reboot effort in 2008 starring Ray Stevenson.

However, it seems that eight years later, Jane has reprised the role...in a ten-minute fan film called Dirty Laundry.

Check it out below, but be warned, it is full of bad language, gushing gore, and even Ron Perlman. But really, how could a Punisher film NOT have those things?

It looks like the recent viral hit of a guy having a conversation with his 12 year-old self wasn't the only one out there to use video recorded for posterity for a bit of time-bending self-dialogue.

Darth Vader has apparently done the same thing at the beginning of his Jedi training, still in his annoying, "Little Ani" phase, and hanging around with the likes of Jar-Jar Binks.

While just about anyone would probably be induced to a few facepalms by some of the things that your younger self was into, Vader has a little more on his plate than most people when it comes to the "embarrassing pasts" department.

This brilliantly-done parody also includes a cameo from the original video's star, Jeremiah McDonald.

Just as with the guy who had a conversation with his 12-year-old self, the latest trend in viral videos seem to involve interactions with yourself over the course of years. (Not to give porn any ideas.)

This one, however, is more of a timeline in this girl's life, as she lip-syncs the same Aaron Carter song from ages 17, 20, and 23, becoming a proverbial one-girl party across the space-time continuum.

Now, all she needs is one more frame at age 26 to do a proper homage to the 2000 movie, Timecode.

Flies Didn't Read The Warning

Posted July 13, 2012 - By Joseph Baxter

Flies Didn't Read The Warning

Flies are on this Earth purely to spoil our picnics, bite us, and play in poo. On top of that, they never ever bother learning how to read.

Well, now, that's finally come back to bite this little swarm of rebel flies as they stick to this paper, waiting for merciful death to come, knowing that Admiral Ackbar's words went unheeded with the utmost of hubris.
