Dark Knight

JULY 18 "Mamma Mia!" vs. "The Dark Knight" The adaptation of the smash ABBA musical boasts a surprisingly good cast: Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, Pierce Brosnan and Christine Baranski. But the Batman sequel "The Dark Knight" has an even better pedigree: director Chris Nolan, with Christian Bale as the Caped Crusader and Heath Ledger as the Joker. With another "Superman" movie on hold, we're taking superheroes over Sweden.
