We are entering a powerfully synchromystically, yes, synchrocinematically significant weekend. Veterans Day (old style, November 11; new style November 12), plus the opening of Skyfall, Lincoln, Citadel, and even A Royal Affair, is one of those conjunctions of metaphors we have grown to view with some caution.
Midnight showings on November 9th, hopefully, for Skyfall will be without any Aurora surprises or undertones, which occurred when The Dark Knight Rises opened.
Colorado's Aurora shooting appeared to have been a "red dawn" event, a milestone awakening incident of which we can only guess what it might mean in the future. The word, Colorado (red) and Aurora (dawn), were a rather meaning combination, a lexilink of some note, as it turns out.
You may recall, Skyfall was there from the beginning. Literally.
I went to see The Dark Knight Rises with my 22 year old son, at 3:15 pm, on Friday, July 20, 2012. One of the first visuals that stuck me, before the film, was what I saw in the preview to the then-forthcoming James Bond movie, Skyfall. At the 39-40 second mark of the trailer, quite readable on the IMAX screen, a frame appeared with a vivid skyline. Right there, up front was a building with a red sign that read clearly, Aurora.
The Norwich Aurora [of Connecticut]...reported that Mr. Lincoln had been beaten for Congress in 1848 by Thomas L. Harris, a "glorious Norwich boy" and then beaten for the Senate in 1858 by Stephen A. Douglas. Democrat Harris had indeed been elected to Congress from Springfield in 1848, but he defeated Mr. Lincoln's former law partner, not Mr. Lincoln. But the facts did not get in the way of the Norwich newspaper's tirade against Republicans "and the other eminent prophets and saints of the abolition." Source.
This Lincoln movie is not to be confused with the project that the late Tony Scott had been working for the National Geographic Channel, entitled Killing Lincoln. The two-hour Killing Lincoln, which was being produced by Ridley and Tony Scott's Scott Free Productions, is based on Bill O'Reilly's best-selling book Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination That Changed America Forever. The film is due to air in early 2013 and production began in Richmond, Virginia in July 2012.
This Citadel is not to be confused with the Mass Effect fantasy site that is a space station named Citadel, where the Task Force Aurora is located, headed by Dr. Garret Bryson, a group created to investigate ancient legends about the Reapers.
President Obama was declared the winner of the election at 11:12 pm on Tuesday. I think someone said Nate Silver predicted MSNBC would declare Obama the winner of the Electoral College at exactly 11:12 pm.
