"Why. So. SERIOUS?" Remembering THE DARK KNIGHT One Decade Later...

Batman (Christian Bale) surveys the wreckage following the death of Rachel Dawes (Maggie Gyllenhaal) in THE DARK KNIGHT.

Today marks 10 years since Christopher Nolan unleashed The Dark Knight onto movie theaters nationwide. Click here to read my review for this game-changing comic book epic! The Dark Knight returns to the standard big screen on August 3 and 4, while it will be shown in four IMAX theaters around the country on August 24 for a one-week engagement. (In regards to where I live, the nearest IMAX screen showing this is at AMC Citywalk theater in North Hollywood.) I plan on watching this masterpiece on both re-release dates! Carry on.

Photos of the Day: The Costumes of ANT-MAN AND THE WASP...

Posing with the Ant-Man, Wasp and Ghost costumes used in ANT-MAN AND THE WASP...on July 8, 2018.

Yesterday, I drove down to ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood to check out the costumes worn by Paul Rudd (as Ant-Man), Evangeline Lilly (as Wasp) and Hannah John-Kamen (as Ghost) in Ant-Man and the Wasp. This comes less than two months after I last visited the ArcLight to see the costumes worn by Ryan Reynolds, Zazie Beetz and Terry Crews in Deadpool 2. In regards to what I thought about the Ant-Man sequel, here are my quick notes:

- Ant-Man and the Wasp was such a fun and action-packed film! It retained the comedic spirit of the original movie.

- The Ghost kicks ass. She's a lot cooler than Yellowjacket (played by Corey Stoll) in the original film.

- The Wasp versus Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow or Black Panther's Okoye: Who'd win?

- Definitely stay for the mid-credits scene if you wanna see how Ant-Man and the Wasp ties in with Avengers: Infinity War and foreshadows 2019's Avengers 4! In regards to the scene at the very end of the end credits: Eh.

Happy Monday!

CAPTAIN MARVEL Has Wrapped Filming!


Earlier today, Brie Larson tweeted the image above celebrating the completion of principal photography on Captain Marvel...which took place last Friday (July 6) after a 75-day shoot. Last Friday, of course, also marked the opening day for Ant-Man and the Wasp—which is the final Marvel Studios movie of 2018 (though Sony Pictures will be releasing the Marvel antihero flick Venom this October, and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse in December). March 8, 2019 is the date that Captain Marvel will be unleashed in theaters nationwide, while Avengers 4 is set to follow less than two months later on May 3. Awesome! Can't wait to see how Larson's Carol Danvers will factor in the defeat of Thanos next spring...

And in regards to Ant-Man and the Wasp, I'll post photos that I took of three of its main costumes at ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood tomorrow. Carry on.

EDIT (July 9): Pics that I took of the Ant-Man and the Wasp costumes are posted here!
