April 17, 2014 // Franchising.com // Villains! They're what make your favorite heroes heroic. They're the engines that drive conflict in many of the greatest movies. And every now and again they're more interesting, more dynamic than the hero.
This May, the Alamo Drafthouse and Birth.Movies.Death. , the magazine centered on the monthly programming theme at Alamo Drafthouse theaters, are celebrating the truly exceptional bad guys -- the most evil, the most awful and the most awesome. We love villains and we're not ashamed to admit it, and this May is a good month for villain-lovers: Spider-Man's Sinister Six rogue's gallery begins forming in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the X-Men finally face mutant killing Sentinel robots in X-Men: Days Of Future Past and Disney offers us the secret origin of Sleeping Beauty's nasty, occasionally dragon-formed witch with Maleficent.
In addition to these new releases, the Alamo Drafthouse has planned its own salute to bad guys with screenings of The Wizard Of Oz, Big Trouble In Little China, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest and more!
Birth.Movies.Death. has put together a list of the top 64 movie villains of all time. The list, compiled byBirth.Movies.Death. and Badass Digest writers, Alamo Drafthouse programmers and Mondo and Drafthouse Films employees, is presented in no order. That's because we're leaving it up to you to fully rank these 64 crumbums. Head over to badassdigest.com this May, where we're pitting the villains against each other in a series of death matches, from which only one villain can emerge victorious. Head over now to make your voice heard and vote!
