Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn (Blu Ray/DVD)
Two new posters for upcoming films were released today. Above is the new Man of Steel poster showing a Superman allowing himself to be detained. This was the exclusive that was released in conjunction with the The Dark Knight Rises Blu Ray/Man of Steel Facebook ‘Share’ campaign done these past two weeks.
Below is the newest poster from Star Trek:Into Darkness showing what appears to be Benedict Cumberbatch’s chararacter (assumed to be Kahn but still unannounced) as he look out at the world before him.
I didn’t want to write about this because honestly it just seemed dumb to me be it news or not but it’s denouncement makes it an easier pill to swallow. Rumor was going around yesterday via some well respected movie news sites that Joseph Gordon-Levitt was in talks to be involved in the upcoming Justice League film as Batman potentially. While Christopher Nolan has parted ways after completing his Batman trilogy, Levitt was signed to a Warner Bros. contract and could have potentially taken the role if both parties decided to go that route. For all intents and purposes Levitt was Robin in The Dark Knight Rises as if he took on the Batman role in The Justice League it would be a non Bruce Wayne, Batman. That’s dumb. If DC is wanting to get things rolling in a positive way that would have been a horrible first step.
Representatives of Levitt said via Hollywood.com today that this is definitely not going to happen and that it was a case of a rumor becoming more than it is. I like Levitt but he would not be my pick for Batman and his inclusion would only distract from whatever new vision and path they want to take with the JLA team. So for now there is nothing too solid to report on this film other than speculative conjecture and wishful thinking.
The Dark Knight Rises will be out for purchase and download on December 4th. You can expect the Blu Ray to be packed with bonus features. Here are two clips fro those bonus features dealing with the visual effects and the overall work and ideas that went into making this film.
A lot has been said about The Dark Knight Rises, Bane, his look and Tom Hardy’s performance. Some poisitives but many more negatives. I’m not too big a fan of the final film but I appreciate what Nolan has done in this alternative take on the Batman mythos. As with any translation from one genre to the next there will be people unhappy with the decisions of look and character or choice in actor and so on. A lot of people didn’t like Bane’s translation from comic to film. He’s not big enough. It doesn’t look anything like him. Blah Blah Blah. We got a different take on a known creation just like all the characters in these films. We got the mask in the photo above but below you can see other ideas that may have been along with the design for the scars Bane sports that we never get a really good look at.
There is a new tie in going on with the upcoming release of The Dark Knight Rises. By clicking the lower left of the image above you can help unlock an unknwon exclusive for next summer’s The Man of Steel. It’s not specifically said what it is but we could be getting a trailer teaser or new poster or some such of Superman and the film. It was announced today that a trailer for Man of Steel will be attached to The Hobbit. A teaser of the trailer is most likely much like the Iron Man 3 trailer tie in thing. So click on that button/link and help unlock this lockd up thing…whatever it is. Up, up and away.

One of the recurring bits on The Jimmy Fallon Show is him redoing movie trailers while impersonating Pee Wee Herman. While I am not a big fan of Fallon and his comedy these have been pretty good. His newest Hermanized Trailer is for World War Z. You can check that out above along with Hermanization of Lincoln and The Dark Knight Rises below. Maybe I’m a dork for liking this….but….I know you are but what am I?
