Hannibal Lecter meets Bruce Wayne in the new Batman movie.
Since Batman movies score well in the box-office there is no need to stop shooting them right? Maybe this is how the Hollywood studios think. But how long is there until there is no more to tell about this comic character? In the new Batman movie NY needs again the help of the black bat. Although there are no more bad guys coming out of a comic book there are still plenty of options. So, a terrorist -wearing a mask like the one Hannibal Lecter in the Silent of the Lamps used to wear- comes along to threaten New Yorkers. Batman will rise again when he hears a call of duty, but what he also hears is a call from a mysterious woman in black. (That’s a good first sign of common interests!).
From the movie trailer one can tell that many elements of the original movie and comic are mising. Instead of Batman a policeman or an agent could do the job. But could there be something beyond the trailer’s first impression to make this movie special? We’ll be waiting for the whole movie to rise.
