#253: Never Underestimate the Power of The Dark Knight

July 7, 2008

Notes from the Manager

Since, as you know, all of the movie news in Multiplex is absolutely true:

The exclusive Dark Knight trailer at the Domino's website can be seen by entering "000 000 0000" into the Domino's Pizza Tracker. There is currently one up, and it looks like a second one is on its way, presumably before the movie is released on the 18th. (I would guess sometime this week, actually.) It looks like the 000 number doesn't work anymore, but it's up at YouTube now.

The teaser and the two official full trailers can be found at Apple. The "alternate" Dark Knight trailer (originally available exclusively to Comcast On Demand customers) can be seen at Daily Motion. The viral Two-Face clip can be seen at YouTube.

As far as I can tell, the first six minutes that played at IMAX can only be found in ultra-shitty hand-held camera bootleg versions, and fuck that shit. (Besides which, despite all the trailers, I've avoided watching the first six minutes, because I don't want to see it until I'm watching the movie properly.)

P.S. Did you know I am on Twitter? Because I am. On Twitter.

UPDATE: Hey! Ryan Estrada drew Kurt into a guest arc for Alma Mater!

UPDATE AGAIN: Hey! AIR RAID, a new online mag about music and other cool shit, had a chat with me and a few other people about Multiplex (of course) and "underground and DIY comics" — which is a way cooler term than webcomics, honestly. Fuck "webcomics." I just draw comics.

UPDATE TIMES THREE: Multiplex has recently partnered up with a Chicago-area movie website, Hollywood Chicago. You can see their pretty little logo at the base of the sidebar. They currently have a give-away for some free passes to the new documentary, American Teen, so if you're in the area, hop over to their site and, you know, follow the instructions.

Leonard Nimoy (1931–2015)

Sunday, March 1, 2015

I was never a huge Star Trek fan, exactly. I love some of the early episodes, and I think Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is one of the greatest science fiction movies of all time. I enjoyed Star Trek III and IV, too, for what they were. I read a bunch of the DC Comics Star Trek stuff at that time, because my brother bought them. And I watched a bit of the Next Generation and then fell off the wagon. Kirk and Spock were my Star Trek, and the Star Trek 2–4 “era” was its peak for me, warts and all, because that’s the “era” that really hooked me. And really, for me, it was all about Wrath of Khan.

In addition to playing Mr. Spock, of course, Leonard Nimoy did a lot of other things. He was on Mission: Impossible. He directed a few movies (Three Men and a Baby!). He was a photographer. He was the voice of Civilization IV. But one thing I really loved of his was Standby: Lights, Camera, Action, on Nickelodeon from 1982–1987, which provided a behind the scenes look at movies like Star Trek III, Return of the Jedi, 2010, and more. Nimoy hosted and occasionally interviewed guests like George Lucas. As a budding film nerd in the pre-Internet Dark Ages, behind the scenes specials like Standby: Lights, Camera, Action were hard to come by. I ate that show up.

Anyway, as you’re undoubtedly aware by now, Leonard Nimoy passed away on the 27th. As cartoonists do when they’re sad about these kinds of things, I drew a picture:
