so i was all excited about seeing this puppy on Imax.

Had a discussion with some people at work and they told me to see it at Mann's Chinese, where I have yet to see a movie. or maybe i did, but it was AGES ago. the only movie movie I saw in Imax was The Stones documentary which was superb, loved it on the Imax screen.

I thought Batman would carry over well, but now I'm debating where to see this puppy first. I've heard Imax can be difficult to watch a movie on, as its nearly impossible to see everything going on at once, and you have to focus on one part of the film. This obviously didnt' bother me in shine A Light, but i could see it being a problem.

Guys at work said Mann's Chinese was a great theater, loud as fuck, good screen size.

I'm now thinking mann's Chinese at midnight for the first show, then second view on the Imax.

thoughts?

Well certain scenes of the film were filmed with Imax cameras. A first for a mainstream movie, i.e. non Imax film, so i would say that for that reason it is very worthwhile to see it at an Imax. But the Manns Chinese is a great theater, so you can't go wrong either way, as long you see it on the Imax at some point in time.

That's my plan. Probably third viewing will be on the Imax, but yeah. I haven't been in years, but the Chinese is always fun for first showings. Caught first showings of X2 and the Matrix Reloaded and opening day shows of Batman Begins, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secretions, etc there. Epic screen and sound.

I never got to see any Star Wars movies there, since the last prequel inexplicably opened at the Arclight instead. Arclight is my fave theater, but yeah, the Chinese gets all the crazies. Are you okay with waiting several hours in line for a good seat?

Oh yeah, for Batman Begins, they had the Batmobile outside the Chinese.

The Village in Westwood also has fun midnight showings. And the Vista, from what I hear, but I have yet to see anything there.

If I decide to go to the midnight showing, I'm either going to see it at Century City or one of the Westwood Theatres. Fuck driving into Hollywood.

do you know to what extent IMAX film was used for the movie? I heard someone say it was just the first 10 minutes that were filmed in IMAX but he wasn't sure about that.

I imagine it could be a bit jarring, watching a film go from IMAX to normal aspect ratio.

It's been awhile since I read about it but a few of the action sequences, and the scene when they introduce the Joker. Maybe a couple other scenes too, I don't really remember much except that.

so its a rehash of the other rehashed ones? gotcha.

the original with catwoman and joker was the best one. even the video game for that one was better than any after it. really i cant say much about the other movies, i havent seen them. except for the one with penguin. that was dumb. then i saw part of the one with arnie in it. yeah, part of it.

Blinken

Oh by the way, it is 4 scenes shot in the Imax ratio. So when those scenes come on the screen fills up vertically, while the rest of the movie is in letter box because of the hieght of the screen.

06-20-2008, 03:18 PM
I like Batman Forever....the others not so much. Batman Begins was okay I thought. It was definently a fresh and new take on the subject, but I thought the movie had a lot of lame parts and didn't utilize some of the characters very well (Like that Lucious Fox character played by Morgan Freeman. That just totally felt forced, and didnt seem like it was really needed. It felt more like let's just cram a token black guy in the movie that everyone will love, which turned out to be of course Morgan Freeman, just like when NFL teams are required to interview a black coach for the head coach position, they turn to Dennis Green).

You're talking if you view the movie in an Imax theatre right? Cuz no way, if viewing in a standard theatre with the 2.35 ratio screen, could that ever happen.

Blinken
06-20-2008, 03:22 PM
The "original" (non adam west) did not have Catwoman. Unless you are talking about the Adam West one but that had the penguin in it to. To compare the new Batman movies to Batman and Robin is just plain wrong the only thing is that they both have a batman the similarities end there.

of course only in Imax theaters, the ratio changes to 1.4:1 or something like that for those scenes. Apparently they played a scene before I Am Legend on the Imax and it was amazing.

Ok - to set another record straight - Robin really wasn't gay. Haven't you ever been that friend that so dug the makeup of another friend that you were just perpetually on board? No? What about if you were friends with Batman. Just think about it. This is your fucking buddy - and he has such a boner for justice and vengeance that you're just indubitably on board. I mean, come on. This is your boy. He has this crazy conviction. The largest conviction you can come up with in your heart is the fury that Three's Company went off the air. So - you know - you're on board. For better or for worse - this is your buddy here. He's your inspiration. Hot chicks in fuck-me bikini tops come up and, yeah - maybe that would be nice - but you believe in a higher cause here. You believe in your friend.


Just not as gay as it always seems.

http://www.news.com.au/entertainment/story/0,26278,23926550-7485,00.html

Robert, 18, from Sidcup, Kent, had already recorded his role as teenage wizard Marcus Belby in Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince when he was stabbed in a street attack as he tried to protect his brother.

Many of the mourners wore pink shirts and ties after the family specifically asked for the ceremony to be as colourful as possible in his memory.

Robert's heartbroken mother Sally led the congregation in opting for colourful clothes instead of the traditional dark hues.

Dressed in a bright pink bolero-style cardigan, matching shoes and a polka dot dress, Mrs Knox had to be supported as the procession arrived for the service.

The ceremony in Eltham, southeast London, was just 5km from the bar where Robert was knifed days after finishing shooting the film, which is due for release in November.

A private funeral at the local crematorium was followed by a memorial service at St John the Evangelist Church in Sidcup.

A tribute-laden cortege led by a grey Rolls Royce made its way from the family home, followed by dozens of his close friends and family, ahead of the service.

Before the cortege set off, Mrs Knox and Robert's younger brother Jamie stood close by the hearse with their hands clutched and their heads bowed in sorrow.

A mourner, who did not want to be named, said: "Rob would've wanted us not to be sad but it's impossible not to be on a day like this."

His father Colin delivered a eulogy at the service and his mother read out a poem.

The teenager, who had been an actor since the age of 11, completed filming the latest Harry Potter movie five days before his death and had signed to appear in the next film.

He had also appeared in The Bill, the 2004 film King Arthur, and with actor Nicholas Lyndhurst last year in the BBC sitcom After You've Gone.

It is believed he was trying to protect his younger brother Jamie, 17, on the night he was killed.

His death on May 24 brought the total number of teenagers murdered in London this year to 14.

Sometimes the super-big screen theaters in LA will reserve rows for VIP's. They'll be taped off for industry suits/celebs/theater friends/whatever. I remember one time I was at a theater watching something on a weekday (maybe Star Wars?) and 10 minutes before showtime the row behind me was cleared out and blocked off and then a big group came in and sat down as the lights went out. I didn't recognize anyone, but I'm terrible at that.

When I saw Return of the King, Megan Fox demanded that everyone in her row move down so her group could be in the middle, or some such nonsense. I was in the next row.

Then told to go back inside. Then the alarm goes back on. Eventually they start it up again. But as we were leaving we were told to save our ticket stubs and we could exchange them for a ticket to any movie, no restrictions.

that's incredible. so it was the entire theater, not just lucky number 15? I was in 15. 12:15 show. people were pissssssed. We couldn't tell if it was all theaters or just ours. I must say, i have never had a movie experience like this. it felt more like a concert at times. Getting out of there was ntus too. I didn't make it home till 4:20. The walk from parking structure to theater was insane. And that fire alarm was such a buzz kill. Easily the biggest day in Arclight's history. They couldn't have picked a worse day for this too happen. I don't like how it took 15 minutes to get one of the ushers into theater 15 to tell everyone not to evacuate.
i thought i lost my ticket but i'm happy I just found it.

movie itself was epic. I was exhausted by last act, so look forward to watching the movie again when I'm a bit more alert.

Batman's voice was fucking bad. Way more than Batman Begins. People were laughing when he would talk. It just looked silly.

The Dark Knight Sets New Midnight Record!
Source: Variety
July 18, 2008

Record #2? Check!

The Dark Knight grossed the most ever for midnight shows, earning a massive $18.5 million from 3,040 theaters. The number did not include the 3:00 a.m. and 6 a.m. showings.

The Batman Begins follow-up broke the previous midnight record set by 20th Century Fox's Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith which grossed $16.9 million from 3,663 theaters. "Sith" went on to make $50 million in its first day, which was a Thursday. The highest single day opening record is currently held by Sony's Spider-Man 3, which made $59.8 million.

This morning, The Dark Knight expanded into a record 4,366 theaters.
