Warner Bros. releases their 2009 preview kit, containing new images from 'Watchemen', 'Whiteout' and the (allegedly) graphic-novel based 'Sherlock Holmes'. Also, award buzz continues with more kudos for 'The Dark Knight' and 'Iron Man'. Here's your Comics2Film news wrap for December 15th.

 

 

DARK KNIGHT and IRON MAN gather honors

The award buzz continues for the biggest superhero movie of all time.

The Boston Society of Film Critics is the latest group to confer honors on 'The Dark Knight'. The group met Sunday to vote on their 2008 awards.

Heath Ledger was named supporting actor for his performance as the Joker in the film.

Check out the article for the complete list of winners.

 

 

The American Film Institute has also finalized their list of selections for the 2008 awards.

AFI was created to protect and preserve the legacy of the moving image art form so that future generations will have a greater understanding and appreciation for the proud heritage reflected in the realities of a new modern day.

Each year, AFI AWARDS honors excellence in the moving image arts within the context of a Year in Review. This is the next chapter in AFI's national mandate — specifically, the creation of an annual almanac that records and preserves the evolution of the moving image arts in the 21st century.

Yeah, hopefully it gets the Oscar Best Picture Nomination and the Ledger win.  If Brolin or Michael Shannon or Dev Patel get in the way of Ledger's win I'll be pissed!!

 

btw, for those that have seen Slumdog Millionaire, is it's Cinematography and musical score really better then The Dark Knights?  I mean, I know that Slumdog is the leading favorite right now, and awards always like to praise the favorites with awards it doesn't necessarily deserve, but I can't see Slumdog's Photography being better the Pfister's, especially with the IMAX shots.

Thankfully Pfister won Cinematography at San Fransisco's Critics Awards, but still...that's like one out of ten so far that Slumdog has beaten it in that category.
