Batkid Gets His Own Batkid Rises Movie Trailer

Posted By on Fri, Nov 22, 2013 at 10:45 AM


It's about time! It's been a whole week since 5-year-old Miles Scott imbued the nation with pure joy when he donned his little batkid gear and saved the city of San Francisco, aka Gotham City, right before our very eyes.

It was a stellar day for both Miles and San Francisco; thousands of people turned out to cheer on the Leukemia survivor as he fulfilled his wish to be Batkid for a day, thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

But now that animated day -- where Batkid saved Lou Seal, a damsel in distress on a trolley car, and arrested The Riddler -- comes equip with its own movie trailer, riffing off the Dark Knight Rises.

Who knows, Miles just might be the next Christian Bale.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
