What is Movie News After Dark? This evening’s column, as evident in the above image and title, will be very Batman heavy. Because it’s impossible to live and work on the internet without running into a bunch of Bat-related stuff. So we might as well just get it out of the way. We’ll also mix in some Community. And Community/Batman crossover.
We begin tonight with one of two brand new photos from The Dark Knight Rises. This one features Bane, as played by Tom Hardy, staring down Batman, as played by Christian Bale. Guess what happens next…
The folks at Screenrant have published a fun list of 10 Badass Characters Neutered by Their Sequels, in which they recount all of the big time heroes who found their weakest moments in sequels. I’d bet that you can guess which masked man made the list.
Speaking of heroes, The Wall Street Journal has a great profile of composer John Williams, The Last Movie Maestro. One of the greats, indeed.
This stylish Dark Knight Rises poster, from artist Chaz Russo — aka Reckerhouse — absolutely blew me away. So much so that I pre-ordered a print for my office. Seriously, check it out and tell me you don’t want one:
David Thier of The Atlantic has an interesting, if controversially titled piece about Community being pulled from NBC’s midseason lineup. In I’m Glad Community Got Shelved, he is hopeful for the future of the brilliant show.
Speaking of Community and Batman, I found this via DeviantArt. Six seasons and a movie must include a season in which Abed is Batman. Of course:
John August has published an article and podcast episode about What Producers Do. It is an interesting example of who really runs the show when your soon to be favorite movies are being made.
At Badass Digest, Devin Faraci writes a New Cinematic Law – Only Geniuses Can Use 3D. Of all the crackpot notions Devin has spewed over the years, this is the one I can most easily get behind. Like any dangerous new format, tool or trick, only those who can handle it should use it.
In closing, I present two more pieces of Batman media. The first is The Dark Knight Rises trailer sweded by some resilient folks in an apartment. The second is an infographic from the folks at Screenrant featuring The History of the Bat-Suit.
