Would you like to see a magic trick…on your blu-ray?

For those expressing disappointment over the inadequacy of special features on the blu-ray release of “The Dark Knight”, this might cheer you up.  Remember that Jokerized trailer reel that fans received during the viral marketing event for the release of the 3rd trailer (including the teaser)?  Well, it looks like it has snuck itself into the blu-ray release as a cleverly-hidden easter egg.  Here’s what you have to do:

1. Pop the Special Features disc into your player.
2. Access the Galleries section and play Trailer #3
3. While it’s playing, enter the following numerical code on your remote (spelling out “JOKER”): 56537

Tada 🙂

Note: This only works on the blu-ray release, not the DVD.

Heath Ledger For Your Consideration…Or Else >:(

Warner Bros has posted a “For Your Consideration” ad in Variety magazine for Best Supporting Actor for Heath Ledger’s performance in “The Dark Knight”.  Academy Awards ballots will be mailed on December 26th, with polls closing on January 12th.  The final nominations will be announced on January 22nd.

Other contenders include:

Michael Shannon – Revolutionary Road
Philip Seymour Hoffman – Doubt
John Malkovich – Changeling
Ralph Fiennes – The Duchess
John Malkovich – Burn After Reading
Brad Pitt – Burn After Reading
Robert Downey Jr. – Tropic Thunder

Now I may not know how these other actors prepared for their roles, but I do recall Mr. Ledger spending 6 weeks locked inside a hotel room scribbling some pretty crazy sh*t into what’s been called “The Joker Diary”.

So what do you guys think?  Does Heath have a chance?fycheath

An Early Look at Waves 3 and 4 of “The Dark Knight” Movie Masters Figures

ATTENTION: We have moved!  Posts and comments will be redirected to our new location at http://angryweb.net.

Well, a picture of Waves 3 and 4 of the highly sought after “Dark Knight” MM’s has finally surfaced!  Wave 3, set to hit stores in January 2009, will include Battle-Damaged Batman (w/ white sonar lenses) and the Scarecrow (in business attire).  Wave 4, set to hit stores in March 2009, will include Harvey Dent, Two-Face, and Bank Robber Joker.  While there is still no confirmation on a “Chase” figure, I’m having the slightest hunch that the Two-Face MM will be another grueling Joker MM hunt with relentless fanboys once again scouring through Wal Marts and Toys R’ Us’s, hoping to bask in that utter nerdgasmic bliss.  However, it certainly wouldn’t be a surprise for countless others to be left empty-handed and bitterly frustrated.  Mattel had better up their game this time around.

In the all-new, hardcover original graphic novel JOKER, writer Brian Azzarello (100 BULLETS) and artist Lee Bermejo (HELLBLAZER covers) – the creative team behind the acclaimed miniseries LEX LUTHOR: MAN OF STEEL – show an even darker and more disturbing side to the most dangerous man in Gotham: The Joker.

After yet another stint in Arkham Asylum, The Joker finds “his city” divided among mobsters and costumed villains. Not content to settle for a piece of the pie, The Joker vows to take back the whole damn enchilada by any means necessary. Look for appearances by a slew of Gotham’s most wanted, including gritty takes on Two-Face, Riddler, Killer Croc, Penguin, Harley Quinn and even Batman!

Not since THE KILLING JOKE have you seen such a powerful tale of The Joker – you won’t want to miss this one!
