The Cinematic Batman

Batman first appeared in 1939 in Detective Comics issue 27 fascinating young readers with his dark façade and unquenchable thirst for justice. A few years later in 1943 Batman would make his first appearance on the silver screen, cementing his place in pop cultural history. Since then, there have been many different incarnations of Batman on the big screen; from the campy portrayal of the cape crusader in the 60’s to the dark and realistic portrayal of Batman in the Christopher Nolan Dark Knight movies, Batman seems to be a character that is constantly being reenvisioned and who’s story is constantly being retold.

 

The most recent actor to dawn the infamous Batman cowl was Ben Affleck in the box office hit Batman V Superman. There were mixed feelings about Affleck taking up the Batman mantel. Some fans (myself included) were disappointed that Affleck’s Batman would be yet another incarnation of the iconic character and not a continuation of the Dark Knight saga. Many fans assumed that Gordon-Levitt would be reprising role as John Blake as the next Batman effectively typing in the Christopher Nolan universe with the Man of Steel franchise.

 

Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy is arguably the best and most accurate portrayal of Batman to date. A big reason for the Dark Knight’s success is not only the brilliant work done by Nolan in creating a realistically dark and gritty universe—largely inspired by Frank Miller’s graphic novels—but also its “finite narrative”. In a recent interview promoting his new movie Snowden, The Dark Knight Rises’ actor, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, was asked about whether he had hoped to be the one to take up the cowl as the next Batman. Gordon-Levitt argues that The Dark Knight Rises was a perfect ending to the Dark Knight trilogy. Nolan set out to tell a story, a finite story with a begging, middle, and end. Batman may be a symbol of justice, but having anyone but Bruce Wayne don the cape and cowl is unimaginable. Although bittersweet to fans that would have enjoyed seeing more of Nolan’s Dark Knight universe, the definitive end of The Dark Knight Rises is arguably why the movies are so iconic.

Hidden Figures Scores Big on Opening Weekend

A new film telling the story of the African-American women who were instrumental in early NASA missions opened with a surprising outcome last weekend. In a surprising move, new release “Hidden Figures” beat out fan favorite, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” by nearly $1 million.

 

“Hidden Figures” received an audience score on Rotten Tomatoes of 94 percent. It tells the previously untold story of three female scientists who worked behind the scenes at NASA to launch the first astronaut into orbit. Arguably, this is the event that won the space race for the United States and inspired the country. Despite this, African-American women at this time were largely unrecognized in the scientific fields, regardless of their achievements. For decades, the impressive work of these women has gone unrecognized. For the first time, “Hidden Figures” gives audiences a glimpse into the behind-the-scenes work required to make the space program everything that it became.

 

Early Sunday, weekend estimates had “Rogue One” continuing its reign at the top of the box office. Indeed, “Rogue One” performed admirably, grossing over $20 million for the fourth week running. Hidden Figures nudged it out of first place Sunday, however, possibly due to a significant weather pattern that brought snow across the country. Word of mouth has also contributed to a fast spread of love for the two-hour movie.

 

This was only the first weekend of shows for “Hidden Figures,” but it looks to be an early fan favorite. With relatable women played by phenomenal actresses, the move tells a larger-than-life story that even more inspiring today.
