BOOO MTV movie awards *or as I like to call them the Twilight Awards....though this year it will most likely be the Hunger Games Awards*
R888 - 5/25/2012, 7:21 AM
WOW this batman news just keeps getting better

@CatwomanTDKR

Hopefully avengers and the dark knight wins something but [frick]ing twilight will win everything you know why cause the audience there is teenagers so I think they be bored to death with the batman footage.
JackSass - 5/25/2012, 7:26 AM
IDC... there's no way I am watching that shit.

NO WAY!
95 - 5/25/2012, 7:28 AM
Post it online for me, k? Thanks a bunch.
TheBurnSays - 5/25/2012, 7:32 AM
Once more, we'll get to see Christian Bale sporting is grotesque beard and long air he seems to like so much when not filming.
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 5/25/2012, 7:32 AM
I remember when MTV was cool, and people actually watched the video and music awards. I remember one year they had Nirvana, Guns n Roses, Tom Petty, Metallica all preform. Now it's a station that glorifies teen pregnancy and whores from New Jersey. Still Lady Gaga did get her start on one of those shows.

HavocPrime - 5/25/2012, 7:34 AM
That banner official as it is pretty damn cool, Banes like 'Come at me bro"

Yea I will wait till its posted
Fogs - 5/25/2012, 7:37 AM
I loved when MTV had music on it. Today is just RSTV because of the [frick]ing amount of stupid ass reality shows it has.
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 5/25/2012, 7:39 AM
RIP MTV.

R888 - 5/25/2012, 7:41 AM
It full of twilight shit
Luther - 5/25/2012, 8:04 AM
Ehh, it'll post here. I'm going to spare myself the mental insult.

@RFBD - those were the days weren't they d;-)
the best one for me was when Elton John played piano with GnR for november rain, that was the sht! (Think it was mtv awards anyway, not the grammys)

@RamonSuarez

Read a Tale of Two Cities.



(That 99% crowd are all the inmates Bane released from prison).
Greengo - 5/25/2012, 8:21 AM
Does anyone else recognize how blatantly hypocritical it is for Grif to hate on the TDKR so much but then edit and post segments of the trailer?

Poor poor grif. Oh well I guess he's gotta keep up this charade.

But I do have to pick myself up off the floor any time he expresses interest in something.

RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 5/25/2012, 8:21 AM
Plus the movie was written and started filming before the Occupy Wall Street movement.
Greengo - 5/25/2012, 8:23 AM
@heisei: lmao

@Ramon: Don't like it don't watch it.

I hope it pisses all the 99%'er douche bags off.

I wonder if Bane will shit on a police car?

Greengo - 5/25/2012, 8:24 AM
'There's a shit-storm coming Mr. Wayne.'
dezdigi - 5/25/2012, 8:28 AM
Let the 8 week countdown begin!
GRYDE - 5/25/2012, 8:29 AM
Thats a waste of time. Everyone knows its coming. Everyone that will go has already made their minds up. Even the commercials are unnecessary. They are just burning money.
GoILL - 5/25/2012, 8:29 AM
MTV really wants people to watch their crappy award show I see.
GRYDE - 5/25/2012, 8:31 AM
@Greengo "
"Youre about to be a bitch, Mr. Wayne."
"There's a bitch slap coming, Mr. Wayne! "

@Ramon Haha! They were either prisoners or Bane's militia, nit civilians.
leftcoastpunk - 5/25/2012, 8:38 AM
@Tea - that's right, remote control! Damn that takes me back, love at first site all over again
sandsmontague - 5/25/2012, 8:40 AM
I still wont watch the award.
TonyChu - 5/25/2012, 8:42 AM
This is a great strategy for getting the demographic that spends the most money at the theaters, young adults.
Ranger14 - 5/25/2012, 8:44 AM
Intruder@ Great video! MTV is not really Music Television anymore. It should be Stupid Reality Show network. Carey nails it....Foghat...slams the Oscars (and that's how a lot of the Hollywood actors feel about the Oscars). Classic stuff.
TonyChu - 5/25/2012, 8:45 AM
Greengo - 5/25/2012, 8:46 AM
The 99%'s aren't poor just lazy. Their government subsidies are not enough they won't more money to not do shit.

I think varying the marketing platforms for TDKR is a good idea to reach a broader audience.

Prometheus will just have to tide me over until Bat's shows up to put a smack down on the Occupy Gotham crowd. LOL!
GuardianAngel - 5/25/2012, 8:47 AM
@Ramon Well I'm pretty sure they don't all dress exactly the same.
TonyChu - 5/25/2012, 8:49 AM
MTV is down right horrible! Its like they promote teenage pregnancy and gloriify being a douchebag from Jersey. I mean honestly these jerks on the Jersey Shore are [frick]ing disgusting and are disrespectful as hell towards women. I'm surprised none of them contracted AIDS yet.
GiantNerd - 5/25/2012, 8:57 AM
@maxikmus Holy shit man, we get, it you think it will be the movie of the year. You should just create a user name called TDKRmovieoftheYear so you don't have to repeat yourself in every post.
Greengo - 5/25/2012, 9:14 AM
@Just1: If they where a bunch of Right Wingers the liberal media and Obama wouldn't have embraced them so fervently. You are waaaaayyyyy off in everything that you said.

They espouse large government and an expansion of the entitlement society and promote and a division of society based on an individual's success.

These are hardly conservative principles.

And Ronald Reagan will go down in history as one of the greatest presidents in history, whether or not you as an individual liked him.
