It seems like every other update this week has to do with The Dark Knight Rises, but that’s bound to happen when we’re on the cusp of the year’s biggest release. And leave it to Christopher Nolan‘s final Batman entry to hide some casting until the last final moment. Today we’ve got a new TV spot revealing Dr. Lt. Dangle (er, Thomas Lennon), which shows off the most comedy thus far.
Following that we’ve got what has to be the final trailer for the film, which premiered on Comcast and ties together this last entry with Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. Much has been said in the first impressions from the film how beautifully Nolan concludes this one, so it’s nice to see a piece that reminds us where we started.
Lastly, we’ve got a poster (via Fandango) exclusive to folks attending the midnight IMAX screening. It features Tom Hardy‘s Bane, it’s terrifying and if you don’t already have a ticket to one of these showings, you’re probably out of luck on getting this bad boy. Check out all the last-minute updates below.
It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act.
But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.
The Dark Knight Rises, starring Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Morgan Freeman, hits theaters on July 20th.
In the case of evaluating David Cronenberg, — or at least forming the sort of career narrative seemingly essential to auteurist analysis — it’s inevitable to propose something of a rupture within his oeuvre: the very evident graduation from grindhouse to arthouse, and, with it, an ascension from body to mind. What dictated these labels […]
Every week we dive into the cream of the crop when it comes to home releases, including Blu-ray and DVDs, as well as recommended deals of the week.

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
