Welcome to February's 28 Days Of Sequels! Every day throughout February one of our VIPers (Jenn, Susan Or Melanie) with occasional comments from the others will present a movie sequel complete with a trailer!
The big difference with this list is they aren't all winners that we loved. Some were disappointments and some just trainwrecks. Hollywood is short on original ideas so when one hits big, they milk it for all its worth and squeeze it dry. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
Day 21 - The Dark Knight - Susan
The Dark Knight is the second film in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy, and gets included in this list because Melanie told me I could not include The Dark Knight Rises, the third movie, which is my fave of the three because of a certain Mr. Tom Hardy!
The movie centers on Batman and his alliance with police commissioner James Gordon and district attorney Harvey Dent, as they try to take down an organized crime gang, but who also have to contend with The Joker, who wants to see how far he can push Batman in his attempts to save the city.
The film's release was bittersweet following the death of Joker actor Heath Ledger, who passed away after an accidental overdose. Portraying the Joker was one of Ledger's greatest performances, and is still one still stands the test of time to this day.
Melanie - I have to confess I stopped watching all the Batman things after Michael Keaton (except the one with George Clooney and I wish I hadn't watched that lol)
