Quick Movie Notes

Submitted by on July 11, 2011 – 10:58 pm 4 Comments

Here’s the first poster for The Dark Knight Rises. It’s clever in that Magic Eye way, which, come to think of it, I was never good at. But I figured out the trick in this one right quick so I was pretty proud of myself.

Below is the full trailer for The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn (man, that is a pain to type). I’m still iffy on whether I’ll love it but I remain hopeful. The movie opens December 23.

UPDATE: Finally, here’s the trailer for Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (what is WITH these long-ass titles??), which opens December 16. Once again, Downey is nekkid. OK, maybe only half-nekkid but it works for me.

Which are you most looking forward to?



  • Looking forward to the Sherlock Holmes film — even though I’ve yet to see the first one!

  • Reader#9 says:

    Loved the poster for the new Batman! Very cool!

    Have to admit, neither the trailer for Tintin or the brief peek at the new Sherlock movie worked for me.

    The Tintin movie looks great whenever we see the fabric of his trademark coat buffeted by a breeze or a close up of the texture of a door frame, but the faces kinda creep me out.

    The scenes with Downey and Law in the “new” Sherlock look like they came from the previous version they did together. Same intense scenes in which the speak quietly as though they are having a staring contest while Law seems to be daring Downey to keep trying to get the British accent right.

  • I actually love The Dark Knight Rises poster. I think it’s really really cool.


    Downey nekkid? Yes please. I hope it’s as fun as the first, though I hope it’s a better storyline.

  • Much as I’m curious to see TinTin, there’s really no contest for me. Robert Downey Jr: Nekkid.
