Citizens of the western English town of Weston-super-Mare thought the construction of a dilapidated castle in their defunct water park was for the filming of a movie.

Nope, that's just guerrilla artist Banksy's newest massive-scaled project — Dismaland: Bemusement Park.



The large send-up of Disneyland will open Aug. 21 and will feature of the works of 46 international artist, including installations, workshops and events.

There will be a cinema, mini golf, a circus tent and instructional workshops 'on how to hack billboards'.



A Facebook page has been set up to welcome visitors and give a peek at what's waiting for them in the murky waters of Dismaland.



The site promises 10 new works from Banksy himself, as well as pieces from Damien Hirst, Jenny Holzer and Mike Ross.





Banksy spoke to the Weston Mercury about Dismaland Aug. 20.

"I always loved the Tropicana as a kid, so getting to throw these doors open again is a real honor, I hope that everyone from Weston will take the opportunity to once more stand in a muddle of murky water eating cold chips to the sound of crying children."





It's not too late to plan that summer vacation of your dreams.

Christian Bale's Summer of Being Awesome continues with a heartwarming story out of Ohio. Four-year-old Jayden Barber, who has terminal bone cancer, received a superhero welcome August 23rd in his hometown of Boardman Township, complete with a Bat Signal, Bat Mobile -- in the form of a $200,000 Maserati -- and an appearance by the caped crusader himself.

In even more awesome news, Jayden's cancer has since been declared to be in remission, which allowed the big screen Batman to fly him out to Disneyland -- a trip which included lunch at the exclusive Club 33.
