    OT: Didn't you say at one point you were working on a fanfilm?

    ^ A government initiative to educate stupid people on the ratings system? How pathetic would such a suggestion even be? How "M" does she think her 8-year-old is?

    Just another reason I'm glad the Swedish ratings board decided to go with a 15 rating for it. Woohoo no whiney kids! :D

    I remember that the FCC recommended that the US Government authorize them to do just that a few years ago (but that was for the TV Rating System).

    The M rating here is classified as this:

    The mother is at blame here, the law here states that movie isn't for people who are just over 15. When I saw it yesterday, there were children in the cinema, who were 12 and younger, and them seem to enjoy, but the film was classified right here. There no need for a MA15+ or an R rating.

    I stumbled across this earlier today, and I have to agree that this is my favorite poster for the film. That is, if it's a legit creation. Heck, even if it's just fan art, I think it's pretty sharp.

    It is legit. It is, just like the movie, truly awesome.

    I completely agree. I wondered though how long it would take for someone to start complaining that the film was too violent for little Johnny who is five. My brother went to see it at 12:01 and he called while in line and said that there were kids younger than ten in line at our local theatre to see it (I'm scheduled for a 3:00am showing).

    I'm going tonight at 10:00pm. Could those who have seen it indicate whether there is anything special after or during the credits? I hate to leave a movie during the credits just to learn that I missed something...Thanks!

    Nothing at the end.
    Maxwell Lord doesn't show up post credits to talk to Bruce about putting a team together.

    Brandon Routh has a cameo at the end as Clark Kent. He tells Bruce that he's putting together a team.









    Not really. People who've seen the movie say there's nothing after the closing credits.

    There's indeed nothing after the credits.

    Stay about half-way through them if you want to see Ledger's dedication, though.

    I'd love to see a scene with Christian Bale going to a support group meeting surrounded by Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer and George Clooney. Kevin Conroy could be there on speakerphone.
