  6. Celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Tim Burton’s Batman With a Behind-the-Scenes Video Made to Promote the Movie

    Sorry, Adam West, but they made the right call.

    Back in 1989, the superhero movie wasn't exactly a thing like it is now, many of today's ardent Batman fans were much too young to see Tim Burton's movie, and most people's Batman knowledge was dominated by Adam West. So, Warner Bros. needed a way to prove to investors that Burton's darker take on Batman could sell tickets, and they created this fascinating video to explain what went into creating the movie and why it was the right direction for Batman.

  7. Enter to Win a A Limited Edition Collector’s “Package” of Penis Museum Documentary The Final Member

    Competition will be stiff.

    Here's the firm truth: The Final Member is a documentary about penises. Or, well, the world's only penis museum. Even if you're not into weird science (or, for that matter, penises), it's still an excellent, surprisingly heartfelt film about identity, legacy, and obsession. And we're giving away a copy of the "Collector's 'Package,'" out today on DVD and Blu-ray from Drafthouse Films.

  9. Director Of X-Men Documentary Talks About How Chris Claremont Made Socially Conscious Heroes

    The Mary Sue Exclusive

    Rogue. Shadowcat. Mystique. Emma Frost. If you're thinking of a an iconic female character from the X-Men (or just a certain ragin' Cajun), chances are, you're thinking of a Chris Claremont character. Claremont, whose legendary run on the X-books spanned over 16 years (from approximately 1975-1991) and many of our childhoods, is also responsible for many of the series' famous -- and now, movie adaptable -- story arcs, including "Days of Future Past,"and "The Dark Phoneix Saga." He's the man responsible for turning Wolverine into the fan favorite that he is, and for bringing the X-Men back to life after their initial near-commercial-death in the 1960s. Now, Claremont's the subject of a new documentary, Comics in Focus: Chris Claremont's X-Men, from the same team that brought us Grant Morrison: Talking with Gods, and Warren Ellis: Captured Ghosts. No strangers to the subject of women in comics, they're also the ones currently in production on She Makes Comics, a new doc that will focus on exactly what it says on the tin, women who make comics, both in independent circles and in the larger industry. We took a few moments of director and editor Patrick Meaney's time to talk about the importance of female characters to Claremont, what makes his run on X-Men so memorable, and how that decade and a half shaped the way we still look at comics from the Big Two today.
