Film News: Official ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Teaser Poster Released

CHICAGO – “The Dark Knight Rises” director Christopher Nolan on Monday continued his trend of keeping things perplexing and provocative with the release of the film’s first official teaser poster. Fans didn’t even have to crack a viral marketing code to reveal it.

Ramona and Beezus

CHICAGO – With junk like “Marmaduke” and “Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore” pitching themselves to children like bad fast food, it can be hard for an honestly-good and genuine family film to find an audience. “Ramona and Beezus” is the kind of family offering that will hopefully find a large audience on Blu-ray and DVD.

Ramona and Beezus

CHICAGO – “Ramona and Beezus” may not be the perfect film that Beverly Cleary fans hoped for when they fell in love with these characters but it is successful on its own terms in its refusal to talk down to its pre-teen audience and through the massive future star-power of its talented young stars. I admittedly have a soft spot for any film that places teachers on a higher pedestal than businessman and effectively teaches young viewers to stick to their creative visions. It’s flawed, but “Ramona and Beezus” works.
