I swear I've seen marketing for this film for over a year now....

Hopefully, it will live up to the hype

Don't be surprised if parents with young kids come to this, and then request a refund or pass after half an hour. It's not just dark, it borderline PG-13/R territory. How they can put this type of film on cereal boxes and market it toward children is beyond me. Then again, anyone bringing under 13 children to a PG-13 movie shouldn't expect to see BAMBI.

That said, it's gonna make a bundle of money.

I'm with you, Transit. Unfortunately, more than ever, parents are ignoring the "-13" portion of the "PG-13" rating. I've never liked the PG-13 rating since it's conception because it still implies that it's similar to PG. They need to rename it "YA" for Young Adult or something instead of just attaching a number to PG. The line between PG-13 and R is really being stretched lately. I feel a morality rant coming on, so I'll stop now.


I think the bat light idea is an excellent one, Mike! I wonder if it's possible to cut a bat shape from a piece of steel to put in front of the light. Hmmm... I did a mini version of a batlight for my son's birthday party last year using a View Master projector and a cardboard bat cutout and it was amazingly realistic.

The spotlight idea sounds really neat. We use to own one several years ago, even though we hardly used it. We did light it up one night in front of the theater and we had lots of cars drive by to see what was going on.

A little research found that it's not possible. The light would need to reflect off of something (cloud, fog, building) to be seen. Here is one that is being used to promote The Dark Knight:

Now, THAT is cool!

I wonder how many drive-ins could put a bat-signal on the back of their screens?

Batman opened Wed in Australia..we were sent night vision goggles to check for cameras..have to send them back on Friday...They must have spent a fortune sending them to all cinemas who had it though!!
Batman is doing reasonably well..but we have sold out the last 3 nights for Mamma Mia instead of Batman..will be interesting to see how batman goes for Friday night though as thats our busy night

apparently/ making the bat signal is not all that easy. Especially with a 60" carbon arc moster putting out a fair share of btu. I'll report on how it draws. M

We did the Bat signal for the opening and the engagement at the Mann's Village Theatre in Westwood. We had Mole Richardson setup a spotlight to shoot from the Bruin Theatre across the street on to the tower of the facade of the theatre. And we also had them do that on to the curtain of the theatre at the Village, Bruin and Chinese Theatres.
