The Number Seven

Since the beginning, the number seven doesn’t really need any introduction.
God single-handedly created it.
David Beckham inked it.
Iron Maiden foresaw it.
David Fincher ended it with the head-in-the-box.
You somehow abused it.

But what’s it got to do with Batman doing The Seven Year Itch pose?
Here’s why:

1. They are icons in the entertainment industry:
Marilyn Monroe has 13 letters.

Batman has 6 letters.
13 – 6 = 7

2. Movie titles:
The Dark Knight Rises has 18 letters.

The Seven Year Itch has 16 letters.
18 + 16 = 34
3 + 4 = 7

3. The year these two movies were released:
The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

The Seven Year Itch (1955)
2012 – 1955 = 57 (When converted to Roman numerical system: LVII)
L = 12     V = 22     I = 9     I  = 9 (e.g. L being the 12th letter in the English alphabet)
12 + 22 + 9 + 9 = 52
5 + 2 = 7

4. Directors’ date of birth:
30/7/1970 Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight Rises)
22/6/1906 Billy Wilder (The Seven Year Itch)

8 (Dates: 30-22) + 1 (Month: 7-6) + 64 (Year: 1970-1906) = 73
73 X 7 = 511
5 + 1 + 1 = 7

5. Duration of filming:
The Dark Knight Rises was shot from May 6 to Nov 14, 2011 (193 days)

The Seven Year Itch was shot from Sept 1 to Nov 4, 1954 (65 days)
192* – 65 = 127
127 X 7 = 889

8 + 8 + 9 = 25
2 + 5 = 7
*I took one day off because of the accidents occurred during the production.

6. The location of The Seven Year Itch iconic pose:
586 Lexington Avenue and East of 52nd Street, Manhattan.

586 Lexington Avenue
586 multiply by 7 =4102
4 + 1 + 0 + 2 = 7

East of 52nd Street
5 + 2 = 7

7. Private screening of The Dark Knight Rises (first six minutes):
Christopher Nolan invited:

1. Edgar Wright
2. Michael Bay
3. Bryan Singer
4. Jon Favreau
5. Eli Roth
6. Duncan Jones and
7. Stephen Daldry

8. 2012 Aurora Shooting:
The incident took place during the midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises inside of a Cinema 16 movie theater in Aurora, Colorado.
Cinema 16
1 + 6 = 7

The last point was heartbreaking. My thoughts are with them and their families.

Tonight is the premiere of the long-awaited Batman V Superman.
I pray that nothing bad will happen.
