A film becomes instantly dated when technology changes. If your movie takes place in the woods where the characters have nothing electronic, you might be safe. I can already tell my iPhone4s is going to be laughable in a few years time, so the kids on the bus will tell me. Some movies avoid the use of certain technology to be more timeless, but sometimes it can’t be avoided for narrative reasons.
Many great movie moments involve phones – showing off some retro or outdated handsets. Here we look at some classic phones from movies, let us know your favorites and the many we didn’t list:
James Bond’s phone – Tomorrow Never Dies
James Bond always has gadgets, but this cell phone is awesome. It comes equipped with: a stun gun, a fingerprint scanner/analyzer/transmitter, a lock pick, and last but not least – a remote control for operating his BMW. He had a lot of fun using the steering pad and firing a rocket all at his fingertips.
Here is what they call a 90-second sizzle trailer for The Dark Knight Rises Blu-ray, highlighting scenes from the film and special features that you will find in the collection.

December 3rd is the date, and as you might have heard on the Internet (typical), there actually WON’T be a director’s cut; people were saying there would be an extra 30 minutes of Bane backstory. We don’t know what special features will be included on the Blu-ray so stay tuned.

Christopher Nolan set a standard with Batman Begins in 2005. He set out to make a comic book movie (or superhero movie if you want) that could be taken seriously and for adults (finally).
