The Golden Briefcase - The Dark Knight Rises

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim & Jeremy are joined by guest Germain Lussier of SlashFilm to first chat about their Picks of the Week, the newest in DVD & Blu-Ray releases, new trailers for for Sam Raimi's Oz The Great and Powerful and indie sci-fi Branded and much more. The main topic of the night was an extensive discussion around the mythology of Batman, in honor of Chris Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises arriving in theaters this Friday! The guys go over thoughts on the meaning of Batman to them, the history and media forms of the series and where they see the property going in the future. Enjoy!

The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Wednesday nights starting ~7:30PM PST. You can listen in via our Ustream page or by visiting our own live page right here on FS. The podcast is just as fun to listen to live while it's being recorded, with plenty of special guests, so I suggest you tune in the next time it records!
