Bet you didn’t expect to see a new full-length trailer for The Dark Knight Rises this morning, complete with some great new flourishes from the score and a good dollop of new footage. But here it is.
While this trailer does feature a good amount of stuff that we’ve seen before, including a few more shots from last winter’s IMAX prologue, it hints more at one big fight between Batman at Bane, and makes the villain even more ominous than he’s seemed before, which is saying something. It also offers up one great line from Christian Bale: “I’m not afraid; I’m angry.”
Check out the trailer below. If you’ve thought the previous theatrical trailers have been too dry, this one might be just what you’re looking for. Read More »

If we posted every single TV commercial for a superhero movie coming out in the next few weeks, every single story on this page would be exactly the same. But once in a while a spot pops up that isn’t just the same 20 recycled shots, it’s chock full of new footage. That’s the case with this new spot for The Dark Knight Rises.
The finale of Christopher Nolan‘s Batman trilogy opens July 20 and stars Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Anne Hathaway, Morgan Freeman and others. If you want to see some more of its goodies, check it out below. And yes, Mr. Wayne, it does come in black. Read More »
One classic ‘either or’ question is: would you rather have fortune, or fame? I always go for fortune, because for the most part it looks like fame really sucks. There is real power in being able to do the stuff you want to do, but still walk down the street in total anonymity.
Terrence Malick, director of films such as The Tree of Life and Days of Heaven, has always sought that sort of lifestyle — he could have given J.D. Salinger lessons in avoiding the press — and now we know he has truly achieved it. Because when he and Benecio Del Toro were out walking, TMZ caught up to them, and the tape of the encounter proves that the crew had no idea they had stumbled into a stupendously rare interview with one of the most reclusive talents of the past fifty years.

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 when you though they were out, they pull you back in. For the past several years both Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale have more or less said that The Dark Knight Rises was their final Batman film and that it completed a trilogy. Done. End of story.
Or is it? In the new Empire, which has a lot of great stuff in it, Bale has very carefully worded a statement that says he’d be open to the challenge of a fourth movie if Christopher Nolan came to him with the right story. We all know that’s a big, big “if.”
After the jump, read that quote and check out a brand new TV spot for The Dark Knight Rises, which features a heavy dose of Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman) and the reveal of The Bat.

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 »
Today Warner Bros. released a new poster for Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight Rises, and it is an attention-getting design that helps put the original teaser poster into perspective. Here we see the same bat-logo outline established by a crumbling Gotham City, but with the addition of a fiery explosion and tense, determined Batman (Christian Bale).
