Major spoilers for The Dark Knight Rises throughout
You’ve got to give it to Christopher Nolan. When I saw The Dark Knight Rises, I was pretty confident I knew what happened at the end of the movie. Bruce Wayne fakes his death, fulfills Alfred’s dream of seeing him in Italy, and he passes the mantle of Batman – a symbol – to John Blake. Say what you want about the rest of the movie (and we have) but I still think that ending is fantastic. By far the best thing about the movie.
But like I said, you’ve got to give it to Christopher Nolan. Years later and people are still debating what happened in those final few scenes. Case in point, Christian Bale was doing an interview for Exodus: Gods and Kings and was asked his thoughts on the ending. Listen to The Dark Knight Rises ending explained by Christian Bale below.

The first trailers for Ridley Scott‘s new film Exodus: Gods and Kings spent a lot of time on the familiar relationship between Moses (Christian Bale) and Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton), in order to let us know that this isn’t just another retelling of the story of Exodus as it has been told on the screen before. But that story is definitely here, and this final Exodus trailer opens the floodgates that held back the wrath of God.
This trailer focuses on the darkness that threatens to fall over Egypt if Ramses decides not to free Moses’ people. And we all know how that story plays out. We’ve seen bits of the visualization of the Red Sea in past trailers, and hints of the plagues that beset Egypt, but this trailer offers up a lot more spectacle. Read More »
Update: Christian Bale has pulled out of Danny Boyle‘s Steve Jobs movie. THR reports “Sources say Bale, after much deliberation and conflicting feelings, came to the conclusion he was not right for the part and decided to withdraw.” Seth Rogen is in talks to play Apple co-counder Steve Wozniak, but with Bale out of the picture the film’s casting could change dramatically.
Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin has said that the lead actor in the film will be in every frame of the movie, which makes this a very demanding project for any actor. We’ll report on the new choice for the lead when that information becomes available. Boyle is reportedly in Los Angeles this week to meet with actors, so casting may be reported within days. Our original story on casting the film follows. Read More »
