Clips and Bits

Greetings everyone! Welcome to another edition of the (rather sporadic) Clip and Bits, where I highlight some fun bits of information I have gathered over the past week or so.


1. Another Good Read

As far a aggregators go, one of the best ones (at least a favorite of mine) in the BBC Film iPaper. I may have mentioned it before, but the layout and snippets that this bulletin follow are great. This week (of course) has LOADS of information surrounding The Dark Knight Rises, but there are also some great general reads as well. Check it out when you get a moment.



2. Speaking of The Dark Knight Rises … 

On my way home from work on Monday, I ‘stumbled upon’ the setup for the red carpet premiere of the film. Honestly I had NO clue that it was playing at on of ‘my locals,’ so it came as a pleasant surprise. Here is an iPhone snap as I did my walk-by.


3. From a Distance … a Comic-Con Recap

While I was not cool enough to partake in the festivities in sunny San Diego, I was following the proceedings on the Internets. Here is a pretty good movie recap, courtesy of E!. For my part, I wish I could have been there for The Hobbit panel – it looks quite exciting actually. One film that I am getting more curious about is The Man of Steel. The poster looks kinda cool, but there is that rather prescient fear that it will again be a case of style over substance.

Needless to say I think I am going to join the queue of fanboys and fangirls in 2013 and participate in the festivities!


  1. I’d love to go to San Diego for Comic Con one day. The frustrating thing is that those who were there already saw Pacific Rim and Man of Steel trailers and I really can’t wait to see those. MoS poster is kinda standard, but I heard the trailer is awesome.

    • Yes I have been advised by my local ComicCon expert that 2013 probably will not have too much in the way of blockbuster surprises. But that is okay, I am sure that I can find ways of amusing myself 🙂

  2. I’m cautiously optimistic about the Man of Steel? Who’s directing it again? And who’s playing Clark Kent/Superman? It’s funny Superman Returns was a paradoxical film. It was actually rather well-made and mildly entertaining but has little to no re-watch value and wasn’t what most expected in terms of action (or lack there of). It was more of a rom-dram (yes, I made up a new term lol).

  3. I thought I couldn’t get any more excited about The Man of Steel, boy was I wrong!!! I so want to see Henry, er I mean Superman fly!! Can’t wait to see the real trailer instead of those awful bootleg ones.

  5. I am sorta looking forward to the Man of Steel now…for starters, I love the “niorish” color of the movie poster. I will see TDKR this coming weekend…I am hearing folks banter that it’s better than the TDK…hmmm, we’ll see about that! 🙂
