CHICAGO – Before 1998’s “The Big Lebowski” there was 1996’s “Kingpin”, the Farrelly brothers bowling comedy that didn’t have the narrative intricacies of the Coen brothers’ classic, but had plenty of jokes about middle-aged men playing the sport. Today finds the release of “Kingpin” to Blu-ray for the first time, coming with only one new special feature.
On the Set: Into the Wee Hours of the Morning, ‘The Dark Knight’ Lights Up
CHICAGO – I told Phil Tadros (my on-the-street Hollywood cameraman) that his first two “The Dark Knight” video segments were good but could be better.
I encouraged him to dig deeper. This time, we bring you what you’ve been asking for: set footage. As in his second segment, he again uses the access-a-friend’s-apartment route.
This video was shot around 1 a.m. on Friday, June 15 at Clarendon and Cuyler in Chicago. At the 1:29 video mark, Gary Oldman (who plays Lt. James Gordon) can be seen in the black suit.
