‘The Batman Complex’ – When ‘The Machinist’ Dreamed of Being Batman


A fanmade trailer for a fake film titled The Batman Complex is making the rounds in which Christian Bale’s character from The Machinist has been dreaming of being Batman, all from an idea planted in his head by Leonardo DiCaprio’s character from Inception. The trailer uses footage from The Machinist, Batman Begins, Batman (1989), The Dark Knight, Inception, Shutter Island, Equilibrium and The Prestige. If there are other films used I missed them, but overall it’s a pretty fun watch as it uses Clint Mansell’s score from The Fountain to tell its story.

The “I’ve done it before” part is my favorite aspect of the whole thing.
