Earlier this month, June 15th marked the 10th anniversary of Batman Begins, the franchise reboot from director Christopher Nolan that launched the most acclaimed film franchise adaptation of The Caped Crusader to date. So what better time is there to dive behind the scenes of the film that gave Gotham the hero it deserves?
A feature-length assembly of special features from the Blu-Ray release of the film is available online to explore various facets of the film at nearly all stages of production, from early development to principal photography and even the final release. Plus, there are some good quotes from Nolan after the jump about how Batman Begins came to be.

Screenprinted movie posters continued to explode in 2014. I drool over so many posters every year, it’s very difficult to pick favorites. With movies, at least you know what you like and you don’t like. Why something works and why something doesn’t. Physical art is more subjective. Some art just hits people one way and others another. Such it is with pop culture posters. Maybe I love one subject more than another and that makes the art seem better. Maybe the art is absolutely incredible but, if I don’t connect with the subject, it’s harder to appreciate. Long story short, ranking them in any definitive ways seems futile.
That said, we figured it would be fun to at least call out a few of coolest screenprinted movie posters of 2014. Fifteen personal favorites that stand out, for one reason or another, to me. Posters are are beautiful, unique and make me remember their subject in a new, vivid way. Check out my favorite screenprinted movie posters of 2014 after the jump. Read More »
