Batman vs. Gladiator

Two modern acting legends, Christian Bale and Russell Crowe clash in the Opening Gala film of the 15th Titanic International Film Festival on the 3rd of April in Uránia cinema.

The western, 3:10 to Yuma is the first among the 60-something bold-spirited independent films that Titanic is offering to its audiences between April 3-13.

The film - the remake of a 1957 classic - is set in the bleak scenery of 19th century Arizona, where wooden-legged veteran Dan Evans (Bale) is struggling to survive after a devastating drought. In order to save his family with the 200-dollar remuneration, he agrees to escort some headhunters who are transporting the legendary bandit, Ben Wade (Crowe) on the train to Yuma, which would carry him all the way to prison and the gallows. However, when Wade’s men become aware of the mission, Evans and Wade, as well as all the gang members soon find themselves in a classic life-or-death encounter.
The gripping western of James Mangold, director of Johnny Cash film, Walk the Line, will also screen on the 4th of April, which is the second day of the 10-day-long event.

Titanic’s festival audience can also check out Christian Bale in Werner Herzog’s war story, Rescue Dawn, giving one of the best performances in his career.
