These funny movie synopses feel totally wrong, but are sort of on point. They read like someone who just started watching movies for the first time badly trying to explain a plot. It's fun to try and think of other movies you can sum up in just a few sentences with crude reductionism. Beauty and the Beast? A young woman makes friends with some furniture and falls in love with her kidnapper. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory? Creepy rich guy lures families into a building and kills kids in front of their parents. Inception? A group of colleagues take some epic naps together.
Take a look at some of these hilariously bad (but not wrong) plot summaries, and if you want more funny movie-related content, try this!
Even though Justice League's only 31 days into the 111 scheduled for production, Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. still managed to show off a clip from the film at last weekend, on set in London.
The scene opens on Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) entering his dark lit apartment, and shortly thereafter all the lights come on to expose Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) sitting there, waiting for him.
“Barry Allen… Bruce Wayne,” Bruce says addressing a stunned Barry Allen. “You say that is if it’s normal to have a complete stranger sitting in my second favorite chair,” Barry responds to several laughs from a few press members that are around to watch the epic introduction.
Bruce proceeds to whip out a surveillance shot, which was Flash's cameo appearance in Batman v. Superman; and continues to question Barry about what he was doing during the footage. Barry responds saying that sure, it's someone who looks exactly like him, but is probably just an 'attractive Jewish boy.'
Bruce undeterred by Barry's expectant reluctance to reveal his identity, chucks a Batarang at Barry, who easily sidesteps the assault, launching the scene into slow motion and capturing that moment when Barry learns Bruce's true identity (and vice versa).
Time falls back to normal pacing, and Barry says, "You’re the Batman,” to which Bruce responds, “And you’re fast.” Then Barry tells him Bruce he thinks that way of thinking about the matter is an “over-simplification.”
Scene closes with Bruce recruiting a very eager Flash, who says he needs and friends, and also asks to keep the Batarang.
Bruce Wayne's residence from Batman v Superman is available to explore on street view in Google maps. It's a pretty cool house. He's got a view, some obviously expensive furniture although, that's a lot of glass for a Superhero's protective fortress...
And what does he even do in there? Does this house even have a bathroom or is it all windows? It's not enough to just look around, if you walk in the right direction you'll discover this:
Jimmy Kimmel stars in this 'deleted scene' from the upcoming Batman v. Superman movie. They must have just cut this out for the trailer. What a shame, it probably would have been a very different movie if the superheroes were allowed to stop pretending they don't recognize each other out of costume.
And, of course Ben Affleck managed to sneak his bestie Matt Damon on the show.
Batman and Superman both think they're right to fight each other. It doesn't seem like we're getting anything new in these 30 second TV spot trailers but they are definitately encouraging you to pick a side.
But before he put on the iconic cape and cowl to film "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," his predecessor, Christian Bale, offered him some advice.
His first tip: beware bathroom breaks.
"Be able to take a piss by yourself," he said, according to the NY Daily News. "I found it to be ridiculously unheroic between takes when I said, 'Excuse me, I need to pee, could somebody undo me please?' "
His second tip: that mask is really heavy.
"I took three people 20 minutes with tools in order to take that cowl off (my) head," says Bale.
Bale also recently admitted his initial reaction to Affleck being cast was jealousy.
The rumors can end, it's not Bryan Cranston. Instead Jesse Eisenberg from The Social Network and Zombieland is joining Zack Snyder's cast as Superman arch-villain Lex Luthor. He seems a little young, small and not bald to play the part, but then again I never thought Gene Hackman could do it either.
Rounding out the casting news, veteran actor, Jeremy Irons (from everything ever made) has been cast as Bruce Wayne's stalwart butler, Alfred. This is much less shocking and pretty alright in my book.
