Bizarre ABC Commercial Promotes "Batman Begins" as a Silly Romantic Drama
From slashfilm, Over the weekend, ABC Family aired a commercial promoting the upcoming showing of Christopher Nolan's "Batman Begins." But the dark and violent film was advertised more as a romantic drama or some TV series.
In the promo, Batman is labeled a "legendary hero [who] fights for family and lives for love." While there are ways to spin that to make it seem accurate, Bruce Wayne (Bale) hardly fights for his dead family and hardly lives for love. In fact, he keeps the women in his life as far from himself as possible.
