The REAL Batman sues director Christopher Nolan

Absolutedk740302 From the stranger than fiction files: Huseyin Kalkan, the mayor of the southeast Turkey town Batman, is preparing to file a lawsuit against The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan and distributor Warner Bros.for using the Batman name without permission.

"There is only one Batman in the world," Kalkan told the British newspaper The Guardian. "The American producers used the name of our city without informing us."

Kalkan also claims the success of the blockbuster film contributed to a series of unsolved murders and a high suicide rate among females within the town.

No word yet whether other communities are planning to follow suit.

Monday Nov. 10

Milk (2008): Eerily relevant to the here and now, in ways that the filmmakers couldn't have envisioned while they were making it. Sean Penn: Your second Oscar is waiting.

Frost/Nixon (2008): I did not see the stage version, so maybe something got lost in translation. But try as I might, I cannot come up with one reason why this movie exists.
