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!
