Bats frighten me. It’s time my enemies shared my dread.
The Art & Making of The Dark Knight Trilogy
Jessica’s mom works at the Chicago Ridge Library & told me about this book that she wasn’t aloud people to see until the 20th. So I asked her if she could bring it home for me to see & she did. I’m not sure why they weren’t aloud to put it out though because it revealed no spoilers of any kind.
I haven’t read it all because it’s gigantic, but what I have read has been very fun to read & very informative. The pages in the pictures were some of my favorites from the book. If you are a fan of the trilogy I highly recommend buying this book. If you aren’t a reader then buy it for the pictures alone, there were a ton of pictures that i’ve never even seen on the internet. The introduction was written by Michael Cain & was very pleasant. It’s a spectacular book. Check it out as soon as you can.
The following is one of my favorite passages from the book.
Having built up so much muscle, Hardy felt exceedingly confident about his first screen test with Christian Bale. ”I remember seeing Christian in the makeup chair, and he looked reedy.” Hardy said. “I thought to myself: ‘Oh, I can handle him. That’s not a problem.’ So I got changed into my Bane costume and went out and started flexing my muscles—and then Batman turned up. Suddenly, my arms felt really small, and I felt like I was aout 3 feet tall. He just didn’t look like Christian Bale anymore, and he was looking at me like, ‘Oh yeah, I’m Batman.’ And I was like: ‘Yes, you are. I underestimated you.’ “
The Dark Knight | Watched last night. I couldn’t breath at the end because I got so excited to see TDKR later tonight.
Hot Toys from Hong Kong has recently produced a set of vinyl Cosbabies from the popular Christopher Nolan Batman movies franchise. The Hot Toys Cosbaby series features characters from all three Batman movies.
This is exactly how people are being with Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman.
Let it be people! Your bitching & complaining wouldn’t & hasn’t changed a thing. Christopher Nolan has never steered you wrong before. So shut the fuck up!
