Batman fan film

05.29.2009

I won't lie -- I'm not crazy about "fan films." I would much prefer to see aspiring filmmakers spend their time, talent, energy and money on original concepts rather than simply present another version of something created and owned by others.

But I also can't argue with the astounding popularity of the Dark Knight himself, so here's a look at ASHES TO ASHES, a slick-looking French Batman fan film that also features Joker and Harley Quinn (and liberally emulates the gritty "living graphic novel" style of SIN CITY).

The finished film arrives this weekend. Check out the trailer below or in HD right HERE, and find out more about the project and its release at the official site.

"Grayson"

It's not a fan film, but a trailer. The screenplay is on the official website, and it is brutal.

A french surrender joke creamfinger? Just like an american to always be making jokes about stereotypes. (ba-boom)

Seriously why is that any reason to not like this? Production quality's good and sure it might look a little self indulgent but i think it shows genuined promise. I like fan films perosnally. I like it when people pay homage to their favourites and expand on a series in their own way. I like the look fo this one but then i suppose we'll just have to wait.

Also ocelot snake's

Also ocelot snake's lin was pretty amazing and i hope that is actually finished and not just a teaser cause it looked amazing.

Those nutty French people...

A French Batman makes perfect sense since the French have such a long history of stepping up to fight evil.

Looks too much like "Sin City."

Too much of a "Sin City" and "Spirit" vibe to this.

Hmm...

This looks like it could prove to be an excellent idea for a film, but I don't think it quite works as a Batman film.
