ADV: RICOH Aficio™ SP 100 e Series Printers


Opens in Malaysian cinemas on 19 July 2012
Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/ Batman
Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/ Catwoman – gorgeous!!!

Thanks to the nice folks at Ricoh Malaysia, I got to attend their premier screening at GSC Signature at The Gardens, Mid Valley together with Chammaine, Povy, Sarah, Casey, Adrienne and Sandy from Malaysia’s Hottest Bloggers on 18 July 2012 (a day before the movie opened in cinemas).

Here’s a little info on the movie:

Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ “The Dark Knight Rises” is the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy.

Leading an all-star international cast, Oscar® winner Christian Bale (“The Fighter”) again plays the dual role of Bruce Wayne/Batman. The film also stars Anne Hathaway, as Selina Kyle; Tom Hardy, as Bane; Oscar® winner Marion Cotillard (“La Vie en Rose”), as Miranda Tate; and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, as John Blake.

Returning to the main cast, Oscar® winner Michael Caine (“The Cider House Rules”) plays Alfred; Gary Oldman is Commissioner Gordon; and Oscar® winner Morgan Freeman (“Million Dollar Baby”) reprises the role of Lucius Fox.

The screenplay is written by Christopher Nolan and Jonathan Nolan, story by Christopher Nolan & David S. Goyer. The film is produced by Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Charles Roven, who previously teamed on “Batman Begins” and the record-breaking blockbuster “The Dark Knight.” The film is based upon characters appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. Batman was created by Bob Kane.

The movie is nothing short of awesome with in-depth character development, stunning cinematography and a well thought out storyline. Do yourself a favour and watch it in IMAX if you can.

Before the premier screening, Ricoh who is the official partner of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ unveiled their latest range of consumer printers! What? Consumer printers?

  1. How about toner? Price & how many pages print per cartridge? Thanks!

    • Hi Dawn,

      I have not needed to change to a new toner yet. I don’t do heavy duty printing. About 200 pages so far.

  2. ezlyamused

    Please advise about the toner cartridge – Cost? Pages printed per cartridge? I have read reviews that don’t sound good for the toner price. I’m also having a hard time finding the toner online anywhere. Thank you!

    • I’m sorry but I can’t advise on that as I’m still using the toner that came with the printer.

      • ezlyamused

        Can you tell me the number on the toner cartridge so I can look for it online? Thanks!
