The Dot and the Line: A Romance in Lower Mathematics

This is brilliant! YouTube user moviemaestroten took the audio track from the latest trailer to Christopher Nolan’s upcoming film The Dark Knight Rises and skillfully matched it to scenes from the 1994 animated adventure, The Lion King. The results are amusing to say the least, and Scar makes for a wondefully incomprehensible villain. Check out The Lion King Rises.

The Dark Knight Rises releases on July 27th in South Africa. The Lion King, now 18 years old, was re-released in 3D in September 2011, and earned a whopping USD 30.2 million in its opening weekend!
