With “The Dark Knight Rises” right around the corner, of course you should keep an eye out for cast interviews and early reviews, but how about getting a different perspective on Batman?
BenBella Books is known for producing nonfiction material, a significant amount of which has roots in the entertainment industry, and one of their latest puts the focus on Batman himself, Christian Bale. Bale’s former publicist and assistant Harrison Cheung and seasoned entertainment reporter Nicola Pittam join forces to give fans a closer look at what’s really going on with the man behind the mask. “Christian Bale: The Inside Story of the Darkest Batman” runs through it all from how Cheung got his job by writing Bale a fan letter, that infamous tantrum on the set of “Terminator Salvation,” the financial troubles that arose from Bale’s father mismanaging his money and more.
Head on over to BenBella Books to snag a copy and, while you wait for it to arrive, check out our interview with Cheung and Pittam on the floor of San Diego Comic Con as well as a letter exchange between Cheung and Bale when Bale discovered someone found his personal address.
