I know what I’m looking forward to! And I’m not usually a fan of summer action movies, but the recent Batman films directed by Christopher Nolan are done with such care, skill, and creativity that they truly are works not just of commerce but of art. The cinematography in particular is just gorgeous – every frame darkly
and richly lit, the color balanced beautifully for the dark palette the filmmakers are working in. Just watch the trailer.

I’ve also particularly enjoyed the design and roll-out of the posters – a brilliant blend of photography, illustration, photoshop, and graphic design.

There’s a rumor on the web that this could be the first film to gross $200 million on its opening weekend. Let’s see if all this care, commitment, and chutzpah pays off!
