Yesterday afternoon I went to see The Dark Knight Rises. The ever-longer previews were rudely interrupted by what was not so much a trailer but a brief image of Atlas holding up the world and a release date of October 12, 2012. Apparently the producers (more likely looters and moochers) of the movie are under the impression (delusion?) that they can somehow influence the outcome of the presidential election.
The consensus here seemed to be that the first movie was such a box-office flop that the next two would never see the light of day. However, the producers were apparently able to raise $16 million through a private debt sale (or was it a credit default swap?). I wonder if any of the Tea Party zombies who will slobber all over it will notice that there is an entirely new cast of no-name actors.
May this movie be an even bigger bomb than the first!
