Holy shit this is cool! What is it? Another fan movie similar to BATMAN: DEAD END. This features Robin coming back to find Batman's killer. It's actually done in the form of a trailer for a non-existant movie. It's super sweet and features many DC characters. Quicktime MOV format, just follow the links:
There's also a preview for BATMAN: MADNESS which isn't as cool but worth checking out.

Look out, Bone... you might crap your pants watching this. I know I almost did.  
If some dudes can put something like this together for free just to promote themselves, why can't Hollywood pros make a sweet TV series like this? Can you imagine if HBO did a high-quality adult DC Universe series like this?

I'm at work now and I can't get the film to open. I'll check it out when I get home. I'm eager to crap my pants.

I watched it - it was pretty cool. I would actually like to see a full movie instead of a "preview" version. I do kind of like the Superman guy they chose. Dunno about Robin, though, he seems like Gay Social Worker Robin. He somehow manages to look silly in that suit even though he has a pretty decent build.  
I actually thought the MADNESS preview looked every bit as sweet as Grayson, if not better. Granted, there was a fight scene where Batman looked like Neo meets Captain Kirk but I still thought it was sweet overall.

Yeah, the Batman fight was very Capt. Kirkish, wasn't it? That was my main turn off.  
Regarding Robin: Dude, how can anyone NOT look silly in the Robin costume? All bright yellows and reds and greens... maybe if they darkened it up more...  
Lots of cool bits in the GRAYSON preview though. And it's LOONG... There's no chance of an actual movie behind this, is there? Obviously a lot of work went into this -- seems a shame not to have a full movie.

I agree, it actually looks like an interesting movie. The only downside would be more of that shitacious dialogue. I have to say, this is definitely a step beyond the olden days of a crappy Betamax camcorder in the back yard, with some buddies dressed up in their PJs.  
As for Robin, yes, the costume is gay. But that's only half the gayness factor. Maybe it's the beard.

I'll have to wait and see it at Zilla's. It'll take too long to down load on my dail up.  
Sounds like it could have been sweeter if they would have had Grayson in his Nightwing costume instead. Still, I want to check it out.

See, and that's what they have in the MADNESS movie - Nightwing vs Batman, if I'm not mistaken.

I watched them both again, and I have to say that although there is that one questionable fight move (basically a slow, deliberate series of punch blocks that looks terrible), the Madness preview looks way cooler than the Grayson preview. Also I will give the nod to Grayon's version of Superman. But other than that, it's Madness all the way. Can't wait to see the full version of that one!  
Also, I have to admit that I watched the behind the scenes of Grayson, and I find it to be sweeter than the actual movie. The guy who made it is also the guy who played Robin, and he's a very intelligent and articulate guy, with tons of interesting anecdotes about what it takes to make a movie on the sly like this. Fascinating stuff.

Just watched the BEHIND THE SCENES of GRAYSON and it was pretty cool. The whole thing was done for $18,000 or so. Check it out.  
I also downloaded the WORLD'S FINEST preview (by the same guy that did BATMAN DEAD END) and that was kinda cool too. I still say GRAYSON is the better of the three new ones.

I loved the World's Finest preview! Is it like Grayson in that it's only intended to be a preview, not a preview for a full feature? I would love to see that movie. Damn, it really shows what people who are passionate about the material can do, without the blessing/curse of a corporation behind them. I like this one better than Grayson too! :)

Grayson was sweet as hell, Bert. I don't know what the hell you're talking about.
From: Ross Entered on: July 28, 2004 9:58 AM
I didn't say it wasn't sweet, just not as good as the other previews I saw. And there were some turdy aspects. But overall it was pretty good.
