A Pinterest account to protect the ocean – One World One Ocean

These photos come from One World One Ocean, started by “a family who has been making IMAX Theatre films for 35 years in far-off places like the top of Mt. Everest, the ice caves of Greenland, the Nile river, and the deep-ocean reefs of the South Pacific.”

Their goal is to inspire people about the ocean so they can protect it. These photos, from their Pinterest account, inspired me:

Mondo posters for John Carter, The Dark Knight Rises, Amazing Spider-Man

The Dark Knight Rises – Prologue – a special 6-minute screening clip from the movie

Dark Knight Rises – Prologue

A six-minute prologue sequence, that introduces Tom Hardy’s villainous Bane, will air before screenings of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol in select IMAX theaters in the U.S. and Canada this December (2011).

The clip, which received a PG-13 rating from the MPAA, was shot on the IMAX 15 perf 65mm/70mm film that Nolan used for key action sequences during the film.

Here is another version that is grainy and dark but contains multiple different scenes.

 

The Dark Knight Rises takes place eight years after the previous film, The Dark Knight, where…

Heath Ledger’s Joker blasted through the opening heist sequence with chilling conviction. Smart, scary and utterly riveting, Ledger’s character set the tone for the rest of the picture by blending ice-cold humor with utterly remorseless criminal smarts.

Director Christopher Nolan repeats that winning strategy in The Dark Knight Rises, as revealed in Thursday night’s press screening here of the first six minutes of the highly anticipated follow-up. This time around, intense British actor Tom Hardy, playing Batman nemesis Bane, sparks his own “Holy crap!” moment about three minutes into an Abu Ghraib-inspired airplane hijacking from hell.
