The first time I had ever heard of Assassin’s Creed was during Christmas vacation several years back. I had taken my three grandsons to the Mutter Museum in Center City Philadelphia. Granny was trying to impart some knowledge into her grandsons, but they had other ideas. While we visited the many display cases that held a multitude of medical and biological oddities, I constantly found myself alone and the boys missing. Where the heck were they?
The other visitors in the museum that day would constantly point towards one of the hallways and smirk whenever they heard me calling out for the boys. It took several round-ups before I figured out that they were playing their own version of Assassin’s Creed. So, what exactly is Assassin’s Creed and did the game successfully transfer to film?

There have been enough articles written on Batman to wallpaper every home in America, but for Batman’s big 75th Anniversary I wanted to cover the women from television and film who had crossed paths with the Dark Knight.

The Dark Knight Rises To The Top – Biff Bam Pop’s Box Office Wrap-Up Report, Weekend of July 20th, 2012
In light of the horrific incident in Colorado Thursday night/Friday morning, Warner Brothers is refraining from reporting the weekend box office numbers for The Dark Knight Rises until Monday. However, estimates have come through via Deadline.com which we are going to post below. For this week, Biff Bam Pop is going to not spend any time even attempting any sort of box office analysis. It’s just not right. Instead, you can see the numbers below. And if there’s anything I can say about the events in Colorado, it’s simply this: don’t let the actions of a lunatic hurt anybody else. Go to the movies. Remember the folks whose lives were lost, but keep living your own.
Here were our predictions:
1) The Dark Knight Rises – $200.5 million
2) Ice Age: Continental Drift – $22 million
3) The Amazing Spider-Man – $18 million
4) Ted – $13 million
5) Magic Mike – $7 million
Here are the estimates (things may change come Monday):
1) The Dark Knight Rises – $161.1 million
2) Ice Age: Continental Drift – $20.2 million
3) The Amazing Spider-Man – $10.7 million
4) Ted – $10.2 million
5) Brave – $5.9 million
Finally we have a trilogy that not only maintains the same director for all its iterations, but that also maintains and exceeds the quality of each subsequent film.
Congrats, Christopher Nolan. For this fan, The Dark Knight Rises is my favourite entry in your Dark Knight trilogy.
