‘Alien’ Designer H.R. Giger’s Insane Unused Batmobile Concept Brought to Life in 3D Model

A fun piece of trivia is making the rounds again, and since we’ve never written about it at /Film, now’s as good a time as any to share it. H.R. Giger, one of the designers of Ridley Scott’s sci-fi classic Alien, was hired to create some Batmobile concept art for director Joel Schumacher‘s 1995 film Batman Forever – and Giger’s design is just as odd as you’d expect from the man whose mind birthed the Xenomorph. Take a closer look below. H.R. Giger’s Batmobile Concept Art As you can see ...

A New Enemy Attacks the Dark Knight in the First Batman: Hush Trailer

Unlike Batman’s previous adversaries, Hush seems to know everything about Bruce Wayne’s double life. And Hush is using that knowledge to strike at both Wayne and Batman, while the villains of Goth...

Free Comic Book Day: 10 issues you’re going to want to get

Free Comic Book Day was always one of the fun days of the year for me and my littlest daughter before she got big. The annual event held on the first Saturday of May meant we’d get up early, head out to the comic book shops around us, and try to hit as many as we could until we either ran out of energy or shops or both. You had to go to more than one because traditionally there’s a limit on how many each store will allow each customer to get, and different stores order different quantities and t...
