Christopher Nolan's THE DARK KNIGHT simply can't arrive in theaters soon enough. Every poster is beyond gorgeous, all of the trailers are completely ass-kicking, and the film is poised to become a massive critical and commerical success.

I think this poster is very cute and the trailers for WALL-E have been terrific. This is a film that was not on my radar at all and now I'm quite anxious to see it. I have heard that much of the film is silent; very curious to see it later this month (it opens 6/27). My favorite Pixar film, to date, has been THE INCREDIBLES. Last summer's RATATOUILLE was fantastic as well. This one looks pretty darn cool.

I'm a Hunter Thompson freak so anything having to do with the Good Dr. is worth my time. Last year's documentary BUY THE TICKET TAKE THE RIDE was excellent; I'm hearing that Alex Gibney's new doc GONZO: THE LIFE & WORK OF HUNTER S. THOMPSON is even better. It's a trippy poster, that's for sure. I still think that Terry Gilliam's masterpiece FEAR & LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS is one of the most misunderstood films of all-time.
