We’ve seen plenty of footage from The Dark Knight Rises so far this year, but Warner Bros. has a record to break, and The Avengers isn’t going down without a fight. So here is a new TV spot for Christopher Nolan‘s third and final Batman movie. The focus here is on the interplay between Bats (Christian Bale) and Catwoman (Anne Hathaway), and there’s some new footage to show off their occasionally lightweight banter. Well, lightweight for this series.

In addition, after the embedded spot below is what seems to be confirmation that one long-rumored character will indeed appear in the film. If you’d rather not know the details, just check out the spot and don’t scroll down any further. Read More »

If you’re holding fast for the mid-summer release of Christopher Nolan‘s third Batman film before watching any more footage from The Dark Knight Rises, I applaud your effort. For everyone else who has given in, here’s the 90-second trailer shown tonight at the MTV Movie Awards. It features quite a lot of new footage, including a good bit of Selena Kyle (Anne Hathaway) and a few good new shots of Joseph Gordon Levitt‘s character and Tom Hardy’s villainous Bane.

I expect this will lead to even more conversation about just what role JGL’s character has in the film, and how it relates to the original comic book storylines featuring Bane. I won’t go into more detail here so as to not spoil anything (note: I would be guessing just as much as anyone else at this point) but I expect the comments will end up full of good, informed speculation.

Just yesterday, we got a big batch of promising photos from the set of Tom Hooper‘s Les Misérables, and today we have something even better: the first teaser. While we’ve seen video of the cast on set before, this is our first time seeing actual footage from the movie. Expectations for this project have been sky-high ever since it was first announced, thanks to its beloved source material and A-list talents. This first video, at least, has no trouble living up to them.

Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe lead the cast as Jean Valjean and Inspector Javert in Hooper’s adaptation of the classic Victor Hugo novel and smash Broadway musical. Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Samantha Barks, Eddie Redmayne, Helena Bonham Carter, and Sacha Baron Cohen also star. Watch the video after the jump.

The release date for Tom Hooper‘s Les Misérables is still seven months out, but Oscar buzz has been surrounding this project from the get-go. No surprise there — it is, after all, a splashy cinematic adaptation of a beloved Broadway musical and classic Victor Hugo novel, with the Oscar-winning director of The King’s Speech at the helm and A-listers like Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, and Anne Hathaway among its stars. Regardless of how the finished product turns out, any film with that kind of pedigree is bound to attract a fair amount of attention.

Fortunately, what we’ve seen of it so far suggests that Les Misérables actually stands a chance of living up to all that hype. The first set photos of Jackman and Crowe (as leads Jean Valjean and Inspector Javert, respectively) hit earlier this spring, and today we’ve got a fresh batch of official stills that show, in addition to Jackman, Crowe, and Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried as Cosette, Eddie Redmayne as Marius, and stage vet Samantha Barks as Éponine. Check out the new images after the jump.

There’s one word to accurately describe the four new banners that have just been released for The Dark Knight Rises. That word is “woah.” People certainly didn’t have that reaction for the latest poster, and though most fans liked the character posters more, these banners raise the stakes. They represent our best look yet at the massive scope and size of Christopher Nolan‘s latest. Bane and his army take center stage here leaving us to wonder, how can Batman possibly triumph? Check out the images below. Read More »

Though he’s not even old enough to watch The Dark Knight Rises by himself, Bart Simpson’s got the kind of ex-girlfriend roster most of us can only dream about — and many of them, including Zooey Deschanel, Natalie Portman, and Anne Hathaway will be back in his life for the upcoming 24th(!) season. Also after the jump:

  • Has HBO started casting for Season 3 of Game of Thrones?
  • TNT’s Southland and Showtime’s Borgias renewed
  • AMC orders two more murder mystery pilots
  • Dish Network will drop AMC, IFC, Sundance, and WEtv

Oscar-winning director Tom Hooper‘s big budget, musical adaptation of Les Miserables made my top ten anticipated films of 2012 because behind all the geek stereotypes, a good musical really gets to me and Les Miserables is one of my favorites. So when I say these newly leaked set videos featuring stars Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway singing are among some of the best I’ve ever seen, it comes from a place of passion.

One of the videos looks to be the grand finale of the story, the reprise of “Do You Hear The People Sing?” performed the entire company. Another is of Jackman’s character, Jean Valjean, storming out of a church singing and a third is of Russell Crowe‘s character Javier, who is hunting Valjean, riding to set on a horse.

Okay, so the videos get less exciting as they go along but they do provide a unique glimpse at the filming of such a massive musical. Check them out after the jump. Read More »
