They should lay off the CAPS but batlabels.tumblr.com makes me wanna bust out the LABEL MAKER.
Finally, the Star Wars footage you’ve been waiting for… or maybe not. Episode VII director J.J. Abrams is giving fans a huge tease of the return of the Millennium Falcon, but all isn’t exactly as it appears. The clip is actually a surprising mashup of Star Wars and Batman. Zack Snyder, who’s directing Batman v. Superman, has been mashing up the two films on Twitter for a few months now, and now Abrams’ production company is finally responding with an elaborate mashup of its own. Let’s just say that what follows is one of the last things we’d expect to see on the underside of the Falcon.
Generally when I walk around I feel like Batman.
We are bowled over with the amazing detail in this collection of forgotten Dark Knight promo shots. Specifically these gorgeous images of The Joker — the detail on Heath Ledger’s costume, face, gloves, it’s beautiful. There’s even remnants of white face paint on his coat, and the orange lining inside it’s all amazing.
I miss that Keith.
The previews (commercials for the 2012 Batman movie, the ones at the theater?)
They don’t even show the Bruce Wayne character as Batman and there’s not a single word saying “Batman”. It just shows the graphic logo of the bat head and wings, after the 90 second spot.
[It’s an article in itself that comments on how popular and powerful Hollywood and it’s minions are. No name mentioned or needed.]
This morning, on the bigassweb, they said a bleaker, darker, Batman would round out Chris Nolan’s trilogy.
As I watched the coming attractions, I wondered what’s going on that we have such a thirst for the “worst case scenario”?
The villians are vile and there doesn’t seem to be too many good guys. The previews seem to suggest that some allies have gone over to the dark side. Even Albert seems lost in angst.
Marvin sang it and Cyndi Laupner covered it nicely, but…
WHAT’S GOIN’ ON?
I’m gonna write another on the cinematography of “bleak-chic”, or: I mighta enjoyed that movie if someone turned on a light somewhere. Sheesh! Surely someone remembers that photography requires the measurement of SOME light.
