It’s been around two and a half months since we posted any story directly relating to The Dark Knight Rises — and it was a slightly minor one, at that — but with the hotly-anticipated closer to Christopher Nolan‘s superhero trilogy being just over three months away, things are starting to heat up again.
The first, more official preview comes in the form of an EW cover story, which gives us Christian Bale and Anne Hathaway in full latex glory. There are some comments about Bane and Catwoman to be found inside — the latter of which was, in my opinion, covered in a more interesting manner months ago — with Tom Hardy even chiming in on the whole voice controversy. He feels that, while his interpretation might either be “laughed at” or come out “very fresh and exciting,” we ultimately “mustn’t be too concerned about the mumbly voice”; the hope of involved parties is that audiences will “tune to its setting” as time progresses.

The Dark Knight Rises 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 […]

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 […]
