I love independent film. A long time ago, in the time of dragons, I used to want to make movies myself. So when I see something special, I feel like it’s my job as a film nerd to plug the hell out of it. I’m elated excited to bring you an interview with Mr. Nicholas McCarthy who just recently returned from Sundance 2011 in support of his moody thriller “The Pact”. Growing up on horror films it takes a lot to make the hair on my arms stand up and having recently watched The Pact, I can say with total sincerity that Mr. McCarthy has the directing chops to scare the crap out of you.
Yes, a new Dark Knight Rises trailer is upon us. What can we gleam from it? Christopher Nolan likes to work with the same actors over and over again. Oh, you mean plot wise? Well it seems that Joseph Gorgon Levitt is playing a much larger role in the movie than possibly anticipated and Bane? He’s going to do what Bane does best, and that’s cause chaos and beat the ever living tar out of Batman. The story seems somewhat based on the Frank Miller CLASSIC Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. (a must read…seriously). Oh, and Batman has a (sort of) Bat Wing.
So watch in all it’s wonderful glory for yet another one of the many summer blockbusters about to crush box offices this summer.
