TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN

There are two more TV spots available on YouTube ...

Producer Don Murphy told Sci Fi Wire reasons why people should check out the sequel. "[Director Michael Bay] sat down with the screenwriters. He knew that there was a possible strike. He had his ideas, which are always very exciting, and he managed to get the script done and get the film done, strike be damned. For that, we end up with a really cool movie."

THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS

The rumor from Batman-On-Film is that Christopher Nolan is not locked in for a third blockbuster sequel. Their source said, "The death of Heath Ledger in January of 2008 rocked Mr. Nolan hard. So hard that Chris was convinced that 'TDK' was going to be it for him and Batman on film ... You are correct in reporting that he is developing story ideas with [Jonathan Nolan] and David Goyer, but it will be until AT LEAST 2012 before we see the Caped Crusader back [in theaters]. And that is only an EARLY ESTIMATE at best right now. They are even saying it might not be until 2013."

No release date announced.
