I totally forgot just how impressive this scene is from Batman (1989) and with Jack Nicholson in the role as the Joker doing a fantastic dance to Partyman by Prince. It really is just one of those scenes where the music fights so perfectly with the characters and film as a whole.
Tonight starting at 7:30pm I am heading to the cinema to see the 1989 Batman film on the big screen. Something that really does excite me considering my love for this film and Batman/Bruce Wayne. As much as I love the Nolan trilogy this was the film that really kicked off my love for Batman watching it as a kid and adoring it. Baring in mind I had not long turned 2 years old when it was released in the cinema I am very much looking forward to seeing it on the big screen after all this time!
As we are all more than aware a lot of kicking off has been going on within England and the UK about the changes to when and where you have to wear a mask. Yes, it is all being done four months too late. But seriously what big issue is it when they have changed the rules and from Friday we have to wear a face covering within shops? I don’t really understand what the issue is for doing this for the 15/20 minutes you will possibly be in said shop? Don’t even start by saying you cannot breathe with it on, as I am sure in the winter you will cover your face with a scarf/snood!
Come on listen to Batman and why Bruce Wayne decided to wear the mask!

Today Cinema First released a list of films that can be used at cinemas when they reopen in July. With Cineworld being the first to announce a date for England on 10th July they will then need films to show. The list has a very wide variety of genres as well as from all decades. I personally hope to see a lot of older films on the big screen for the first time, I don’t want recent ones given a release! Let’s appreciate some amazing films on the big screen for what could well be the very first time (Yes Casablanca and Some Like It Hot I am talking about you, not forgetting my all time favourite When Harry Met Sally!)
Here are the 450 films that could be shown in July at a cinema near you!

That’s right the truly incredible start to Christopher Nolan’s darker Batman trilogy was released 15 years ago today, I don’t know about anyone else but that makes me feel incredibly old!?!? I adore this trilogy and Batman Begins is an incredible film. Christian Bale as Batman/Bruce Wayne is very different to what we had previous seen and then you add in Michael Caine as Alfred! Cillian Murphy as Scarecrow is haunting as well!
Prop Store – one of the world’s leading film and TV memorabilia companies has today announced it is to hold the UK’s largest annual live auction of film and TV memorabilia for the sixth consecutive year this September, with the items on offer expected to fetch in excess of £6 million ($7.5 million). The auction is to be held at London’s BFI IMAX proudly presented by ODEON, Europe’s largest cinema group.
900 rare and iconic lots will be sold during Prop Store’s unique Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction over two days on Monday 30th September and Tuesday 1st October 2019 in Waterloo, London.
The legendary actor who is Lando Calrissian in Star Wars and is even coming back for the next to be released (Rise of Skywalker). For me he is Harvey Dent in Batman and it makes me so sad that we never got to see what he could have done with the turn to two face!
Ice Man and Batman all rolled into one as Val Kilmer was part of Top Gun and Batman Forever. He has had health battles with throat cancer and rarely makes public appearances. So for him to still attend this London Film & Comic Con event really was a very special occasion.
Other film credits include The Saint, Heat, The Ghost and the Darkness, Red Planet, At First Sight and so many more!
Since my announcement post back in March (here) I have spent a lot of time glued to the Showmasters forum and Twitter feed for any more announcement of guests that I would just love to meet and gaining understanding of how a Comic Con works. It does sound totally nuts at times but I am sure I can survive and work it all out!
I have now booked more photoshoots to go along with the Jason Momoa and I am now going on the Saturday as well!
