The Dark Knight Returns

Posted Saturday, April 26, 2008, 8:08 PM

A new Batman film, by Christopher Nolan and starring Christian Bale, a sequel to their triumphant debut Batman Begins, is nearly here - The Dark Knight - and this is their latest poster for it. I am writing this post just because that poster is so cool!

This is the famous film that represents Heath Ledger's penultimate adventure before his death. It's going to get some amount of publicity just for that, but I think it would've been marked as a great performance even if he had not died, if the trailers are anything to judge.

I am very much looking forward to it - it's a good year for fantasy movies, but like last year the majority of them are sequels. The list of "I can't wait to see them so bad I'll even see them in a cinema" for me include:

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
Wall*E
The Dark Knight
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Hellboy 2
Prince Caspian

Iron Man is out next week, but unlike the rest of the world I really don't see what's so exciting about this film - it looks pretty regular to me. So I will most likely wait for DVD for this one. Along with:

Spiderwick Chronicles
Wanted
Lovely Bones
Get Smart
Quantum of Solace (Bond 22)

I'm sure there are more that I'll want on DVD, I usually buy about 50 a year, though many of those are TV shows and older productions that are finally getting a release.
