Maybe you are crazy like Gary McCoy and you stayed up all night to see the new Batman edition that started just after midnight. Gary actually watched all three Batman films back to back last night—CUH-RAY-ZEE! If you aren’t that dedicated, hit the theaters at a more respectable hour over the weekend to go to Gotham City. More new movies!
