BREAKING BATMAN NEWS!!!

christian-bale-as-batman

Gary Oldman just dropped a bomb at Comic Con and said the next Batman movie will begin shooting next year “but you didn’t hear it from me.”  This is major news.  The big question remains whether or not Christopher Nolan will be back directing?  I remember him saying he didn’t want to make another one.  Please come back Christopher Nolan.  It wouldn’t be the same without you.  I guess they’ll need another broad.  Can I make a suggestion?  How about Rachel McAdams.  She’s a great actress (sorry Katie Holmes) and is actually attractive (sorry Maggie Gyllenhaal).

OSCAR ROUNDUP 2009

wallpaper_heath_ledger_the_joker_1

First and foremost congrats to Heath Ledger on his Oscar win.  It’s a tragedy he wasn’t around to accept the award.  Obviously if you’re a fan of chethondo.com then you know how I feel about The Dark Knight.  It was the best / biggest movie of the year and the director and film itself weren’t nominated.  What a crock of shit!

I can pretty much sum up the 2009 Academy Awards in 2 words: boring & predictable.  There were no real surprises and Hugh Jackman might as well head back to Broadway permanently.  If I wanted to watch the Tony Awards then I guess I would have waited until whenever the hell they come on.  We get it – the musical is back but please understand that doesn’t mean everyone wants to see a bunch of a-holes sing and dance for 3 hours.  What a waste of time.

CHRISTIAN BALE RANT

I know this clip is a couple of days old, but I couldn’t decide if I wanted to post it or not.  The language is NSFW.  The Dark Knight sounds kind of like a white douche.

This begs the question: why so serious on the set of Terminator Salvation?  Relax dude it’s like the 6th movie in the series.  It’s not Lawrence of Arabia.

NOLAN SAYS HE MAY NOT DO THIRD BATMAN FILM

The story can be found here.  I hope he’s kidding.  The Dark Knight is one of the best movies ever.  I think my good friend Will said it best when he told me “That would be the biggest disappointment in my life since . . . maybe ever.”  So true Will.  So true.

THE DARK KNIGHT RULES THE BOX OFFICE

I know everyone’s sick of me talking about The Dark Knight, but I can’t help it – it’s an instant classic.  This weekend it outperformed expectations by bringing in a record setting $155.34 million breaking Spider-Man 3’s record of $151.1 million.  Some other key figures to point out:

– Record opening in 4,366 theaters

– Mid-night viewing record of $18.5 million (Star Wars Episode III brought in $16.9 million)

– New opening day record of $67.8 million (Spider-Man 3 brought in $59 million)

– IMAX viewing record of $6.2 million (Spider-Man 3 took in $4.7 million)

Very impressive.  I know I’ll be going back again.

A FEW WORDS ON THE DARK KNIGHT

I just got back from the midnight screening of The Dark Knight. I’m tired and have to be up for work in 3 hours. Am I wishing that I waited until tomorrow to see this movie? Hell no! It was unbelievable.

It’s Heath Ledger’s movie. The other actors get out of his way and let him perform. See it this weekend.  I’m already planning on going back.  It does not disappoint.

I’d like to post a more thorough review of the film, but words can’t really do it justice. You need to see it. Thank you Christopher Nolan for reminding us how much fun it is to go to the movies.

It’s The Dark Knight’s day and weekend. See you on Monday.

NEW YORKER CRITIC SITS ON OWN BALLS

Not really, but this douche did give The Dark Knight a bad review.  Why you ask?  Because there was way too much going on – too much action he says.  I guess if it was in French then this douche might have enjoyed it more.  Apparently he liked Hancock but hated Iron Man.   That pretty much says it all.  To read the full review click here.  What a pretentious a**hole.

WE’RE ONE WEEK AWAY

The reviews are starting to come in.  It’s currently 100%  fresh on rottentomatoes.com.  I wonder who will be the first a**hole critic to give it a bad rating.  Someone asked me yesterday how I’d feel if it didn’t meet my expectations.  Seriously I can’t imagine how it wouldn’t meet my expectations.   I’m going to the midnight show next Thursday night.  I’ll try to post a review later that evening.  The countdown begins!

NEWEST DARK KNIGHT TRAILER

For some inexplicable reason, Dominos Pizza has an exclusive online trailer for “The Dark Knight” and it has some pretty good new footage.

By the way, could Heath Ledger look any scarier. I’m already fascinated by his performance. Oh and this is the first preview I’ve ever ever seen that actually gave me a total chub. I can’t wait to see this movie. I’m such a nerd.

NEW DARK KNIGHT POSTER

I can’t wait to see this movie. Yeah, I’m a dork – I know.

Also, check this clip out. I believe someone from the studio stole it and threw it on youtube.  Lucky us.
