The new Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises, hits cinemas today, and it has inspired me to make an update relating to Nicole’s Batman film, Batman Forever! Nicole starred in the 1995 movie as Chase Meridian, a criminal psychologist who allies herself with Batman, who in this movie was played by Val Kilmer. Nicole described her character as someone who has “the perfect blonde hair and the red lips and wears these sort of tight black dresses … [and] … dresses like Jessica Rabbit.” She added that “It is one of those movies where you just go ‘let’s have fun’”, and admits that she found some of the scenes un-believable whilst filming. The movie made $336m at the box office worldwide, including over $184m in the US.
I was reminded of something that our fantastic visitor Hamish sent me ages ago, that I have accidently kept forgetting to add, and thought this would be a good time. Hamish kindly sent us scans of the extremely rare full set of Batman Forever promotional photoshoot pictures. Nicole is seen posing seductively with Batman himself, and against the Riddler’s question mark prop. Some of these photos are scans of the original transparencies of the shoot, and others are in perfect high quality, but all photos are certainly worth a look. A really huge thank you goes to Hamish for sending us these – they are super duper rare, and such a fantastic addition to our site!!
As I said, these are rare and exclusive, so please be nice and don’t re-post them elsewhere – thank you!
