The Dark Knight
While attending The Dark Knight press screening today, I was reminded of something that I dislike. Whenever there is a press screening of a high-profile blockbuster release, particularly in summer, suddenly forty new faces that I rarely if ever see show up to the screening. I'm sure that some of those people are entertainment media reporters who don't need to see everything but have a legitimate reason for showing up. Others just strike me as freeloaders, people who might have a blog but who don't write regularly about films except as a means to get in for the big things. How many of those people are going to be at Wednesday's Man on Wire screening? Yeah, exactly.
