Bizarre ABC Commercial Promotes "Batman Begins" as a Silly Romantic Drama

Posted: April 12th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Bizarre ABC Commercial Promotes "Batman Begins" as a Silly Romantic DramaSubmit Comment
Over the weekend, ABC Family aired a commercial promoting the upcoming showing of Christopher Nolan's "Batman Begins." But the dark and violent film was advertised more as a romantic drama or some TV series.

In the promo, Batman is labeled a "legendary hero [who] fights for family and lives for love." While there are ways to spin that to make it seem accurate, Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) hardly fights for his dead family and hardly lives for love. In fact, he keeps the women in his life as far from himself as possible.

Check out the promo below and let us know if this sounds like the "Batman Begins" hero that you're familiar with.

It's airing on a channel called "ABC Family", they promote things in different ways...they aren't going to really play up the 'intense, dark, and epic' angle...because they are trying to get FAMILIES who may not have previously seen it to give it a try.

You're a f*cking idiot, Alex. Of course he fights for his family, you f*cking dope. His entire career as Batman is, was predicated on the murder of his beloved parents. And the only thing keeping him in the game is his surrogate father Alfred. And then there's the hope he can one day finish his job fighting crime so he finally retire and marry Rachel.


Hands down, you write the absolute worst movie news articles on the internet, never actually understanding any of the movies about which you write, and thus it's only too fitting your one movie "reviewer" is a long-winded gay man who named his f*cking cat after a movie series intended for fat women and depressed, lonely, gay men.

Yeah, a family channel should advertise all their films as violent, sexual, sadistic flicks just to lure in the whitebred families and their straight-arrow, Honor Roll children.

Dumb ass.

Its not exactly huge news, and it is how you would expect a family channel to advertise such a movie. (Although I'm not sure why they would air that on ABC Family to begin with.)

It is interesting how you can take selected clips and with the right narration and music, make a movie seem like something it really isn't. Like that Forrest Gump horror movie thing that AMC did.

I need a drink.

I think everyone will agree this video is the most appropriate response to this idiotic article.

Voiceover straight from "South Park": "Premirs' tuneyt on ABCFemily".

On topic: the f*ck did you expect? It's ABCFamily, not FoxHardcore.

"His parents we killed in front of him, he fell in a f*cking bat cave, trained with ninjas, became a goddamn Batman and derailed a f*cking train".

^is this what you expected?
