One of yesterday's most talked about stories sees a followup of sorts today. Gendy Alimurung opens her cover story for this week's La Weekly, the one with the two-sentence title, "Movie Studios Are Forcing Hollywood to Abandon 35mm Film. But the Consequences of Going Digital Are Vast, and Troubling," with Edgar Wright's recollection of a private screening late last year of the first six minutes of Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises, which, of course, won't open until July: "'I have an ulterior motive for bringing you here,' the British director announced. And then he made a plea for 35mm film. Nolan pointed out that The Dark Knight Rises was made on celluloid. That he is committed to shooting on film, and wants to continue doing so. But, he warned, 35mm will be stamped out by the studios unless people — people like them — insist otherwise."
