“The Dark Knight Rises” trailer now live

Yes, Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises” is so much more impressive when you can see what the hell’s going on.

New “Avengers” trailer, anyone?

First things first – it’s in German.  So, if you’ve ever entertained the notion of Scarlett Johansson having an even huskier, European accent – your Christmas has arrived early.

For everyone else, there are a few different sequences herein than seen in the earlier teaser trailer – the aforementioned ScarJo meeting Mark Ruffalo in pre-Hulk mode is new.

Scarlett. What else do you need to know?

There’s also a good sense of how sensitive, thoughtful, character-centric geek auteur Joss Whedon gets down when given the opportunity to blow things up:

Stitch that, Michael Bay!

There’s some seriously nice eye-candy for most viewers of this trailer, whether your taste runs to hot Nordic dudes swinging their hammers:

Imagine a Captain Hammer vs Thor battle. Oh, the possibilities....

Or bad-ass captains of industry out for a night flight:

This is, I believe, the Mark 3,987 Iron Man suit. Give or take.

It’s all kinds of sweet, even when you can’t understand a bally word those nice German voice over actors are saying.

I won’t lie – I’m super-hyped for this one.

For Rich Nerds Only…

Well, it's a conversation piece, I guess?

Over at Topless Robot today there’s a story guaranteed to give you pause for thought.  In these financially challenging times it boggles the mind slightly that there’s a market for a $7000 Cylon replica, but I guess that rich nerds need interior decor just like the rest of us.

I can’t imagine being able to drop that amount of cash on stuff which is basically – with the best will in the world – pointless and exists mostly to demonstrate that you’re the kind of geek with enough disposable income to buy elaborate props, movie costumes and collectible ephemera.

If that’s your bag and you’ve got the cash, more power to you.
