Warner Brothers has just released a 13 minute plus Featurette for “The Dark Knight Rises,” this has a little new footage but mainly features interviews with the cast and crew plus a lot of behind-the-scenes footage from the final part of Christopher Nolan’s Batman Trilogy. Look for “Rises” to make its mark in Box Office history on its opening day on July 20th.
All I can say is WOW! I can’t WAIT for this to hit the theaters! I’ll be getting tickets online tonight, even though the movie doesn’t come out until July 20th. Tickets will sell out quick most certainly.
I celebrated the Oscars myself by going to see Act of Valor for the 2nd time in its first opening weekend. I implore you… if you have not yet seen this movie, do yourself a favor and go see it soon! You will not be sorry. Both screenings I went to gave standing ovations at the end of the film, and in both theaters, sobbing could be heard at certain moments, as well.
Okay, I didn’t want to post a huge segment of last week’s CSI: NY episode, so I just grabbed the sweetest and best part of it. Former female lead, Melina Kanakaredes, was an Obama zombie so I wasn’t sad to see her go. This season in her place is the lovely Sela Ward. I’ve read somewhere that Ms. Ward is a conservative Republican, and I know that Gary Sinise is at least a very patriotic American. Sela’s new role this season is a demure yet very intelligent psychologist, I believe, and she has a very sweet southern accent.
So, some background for this episode: One of the lab techs was sneaking peaks at a webchat site similar to Chat Roulette (I think they called it “LookinAtChu”), when he starts watching a pretty girl play music and dance around the room. Suddenly someone enters the room and strangles her. That’s the background of the video so you’ll understand it.
At the end of the episode, Sela’s character is about to close up shop for the night, but she still has her “Chat Roulette” site up from having used it before during the investigation. The following scene then takes place, and I gotta tell you, I’ve watched it more than once. This was so outstanding I just had to grab it to share with others. Watch and enjoy.
Stallone appeared on O’Reilly’s show last night, and Bill asked him what he thought of some liberal elites slamming the movie as too “pro-America” and too rah-rah cheering for the United States. Stallone quickly dismisses that, saying “The Expendables” is a movie about American heroes – that’s it. If someone wants to skew that to be off-putting, then so be it. But nay-sayers should be weeping at this point, as this upcoming weekend looks to have “The Expendables” remain at #1 at the Box Office.
“I’m innocent. I didn’t do nuttin,” Stallone joked Thursday night on “The O’Reilly Factor.”
Stallone was responding to an assertion in the Los Angeles Times that “Expendables” was exploiting patriotism in order to put American-made butts into movie theater seats.
All that pro-American schmaltz where right is right and wrong is wrong should be left to country music and Fox News, not Hollywood, suggests Steven Zeitchick in the Times article. He writes, “When times are confusing, we want movies to reflect that confusion, and even to make sense of it. But we probably don’t want to pretend that confusion doesn’t exist.”
