A movie called “The Woman in Black” appeared in my Direct TV queue the other day and because of my unnatural obsession with all things paranormal, there was little I could do to combat its pull. Now, before you get all “OMG, I can’t believe you didn’t know about it” or “Ugh, isn’t that the one with Harry Potter not being Harry Potter” on me, hear me out. This film was quite good. Yes, it can be difficult to see Daniel Radcliffe as anything other than the brooding kid with glasses and an owl, but the way the movie progressed from first conflict to denouement was outstanding. I literally screamed at a couple key points in between, so the thrill factor was certainly present.
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.
