As the summer movie season has officially come to a close after the release of Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation, it’s that time once again to give you fine folks out there a list of my top ten movies of 2015, so far. Going over my list, it seems I have seen 49 new movies so far, and once again, this also includes older movies I have seen for the first time. And as I prepare my list, the easiest cut, is getting rid of the older movies, and then the real fun begins.
And so, I bring to you My Top 10 Movies Of 2015 (So Far).
Warner Brothers has released an official trailer for Batkid Begins, the documentary telling the story of young Miles Scott, better known now as Batkid, a boy battling leukemia whose request to the Make-A-Wish Foundation to become Batman for a day turns into a worldwide sensation so massive it’s unclear whether or not the organization will even be able to pull it off.
You can read more about Batkid Begins and check out the official trailer and a poster for the documentary below.
Batkid Begins: The Wish Heard Around the World Directed by Dana Nachman
Written by Dana Nachman and Kurt Kuenne
Starring: Miles Scott, Natalie and Nick Scott, Eric Johnston, and Mike Jutan
Running Time: 87 Minutes KTF Films
Release Date: June 26, 2015
A few years ago, in mid-November, you may have found yourself locked into your favorite social media to witness a little wish come true as Make a Wish gave little Miles Scotthis wish to be Batman for one day. They transformed parts of San Francisco into Gotham, and what started as a small project turned into something much, much bigger than anyone had expected.
A few years later, thanks to Dana Nachman (Human Experiment) and Kurt Kuenne, we get a look into how that idea turned into something that affected everyone who saw or heard about it in the documentary Batkid Begins: The Wish Heard Around the World. I can say just thinking about seeing him the first time, the emotions begin to flow and the goosebumps and the teary eyes are soon to follow, which is sort of ironic considering the same could be said for another movie that Kurt Kuenne was involved with, Dear Zachary, a movie that will tug and pull at your emotions as well.
Julia Roberts will produce and star in Batkid Begins, a feature film based on the Dana Nachman documentary Batkid Begins: The Wish Heard Around The World.
The documentary, which is scheduled to make its world premiere tomorrow, Saturday, January 24, 2015, at the Slamdance Film Festival in Park City, UT, follows the real-life story of BatKid Miles Scott, the 5-year-old boy suffering from leukemia who made headlines in 2013 when the Make-A-Wish Foundation granted his wish to become Batman for the day.
By now you’ve likely heard ofMiles Scott, the 5-year-old boy who battled and beat leukemia, and who, through the Make-A-Wish Foundation, was able to see his dream of becoming Batman become an amazing reality thanks to the volunteer work and support of thousands of people.
Now comes Batkid: The Movie—a documentary of sorts that runs ten minutes in length and looks at the entire event that was put on for Miles. It’s really something to see, and the amount of passion and care that went into making it all happen never gets old.
