Talk about a big day in the entertainment world. We got the first ever look of Robert Pattinson suited up as Batman via some glorious test footage, which was then topped almost immediately by Billie Eilish randomly releasing her James Bond theme song, ‘No Time To Die’.
Speaking of Billie Eilish and her James Bond tune, the GOAT team dive into that very subject on It’s Been A Big Day For… below:
After having watched the footage of Robert Pattinson rocking his Batman suit before listening to Billie Eilish croon a bunch of depressing lyrics that strongly hints at James Bond dying (or someone else dying) on ‘No Time To Die’, I’ve come to two conclusions:
- Robert Pattinson and his jawline rock the shit out of the new Batman suit, and the musical score in the test footage is frigging brilliant.
- Billie Eilish’s song is decent and pretty depressing, but it gets infinitely better when paired with some footage from No Time To Die.
This led to a random thought: What would it be like if Robert Pattinson’s Batman test footage was set to Billie Eilish’s ‘No Time To Die’?
As it turns out, someone decided to make this exact thing happen after having the same thought and the result slaps. Hard.
You wouldn’t think a crossover between Billie Eilish and Batman would work, yet it seems like the stars aligned perfectly for this random remix.
The grim lyrics to ‘No Time To Die’ meshes surprisingly well with the dark and moody aesthetic of R-Batz’s footage, and the song syncs up perfectly with the visuals when it rises to a string-filled crescendo just as we see Rob’s Batman come into focus.
It works so well that you can easily see this Billie Eilish/Batman remix be the actual intro or ending to R-Batz’s Dark Knight flick.
Seeing as how No Time To Die is done and dusted and The Batman won’t be out in cinemas until well into 2021, perhaps Billie Eilish can now lend her voice to a R-Batz Dark Knight theme song. We have a stunning proof of concept already so let’s make it happen.
