New 'Dark Knight Rises' clip debuts at MTV Movie Awards: Watch it here


Don’t be surprised if a line for The Dark Knight Rises has already formed at your local movie theater. The movie may not be out yet, but a sweeping new montage debuted at this weekend’s MTV Movie Awards upped the fan hype for the upcoming trilogy-ender.

“I think Bruce Wayne’s story is one of the great stories,” director Christopher Nolan — with Christian Bale, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Gary Oldman on hand — said before presenting the new clip, much of which featured never-before-seen footage.

The Catwoman-heavy clip begins with Anne Hathaway telling Gordon-Levitt, “A girl’s gotta eat.” This sets off a gloomy chain of events in Gotham: financial systems melting, twin bridges collapsing, villains villain-ing. And, of course, there was the chief baddie, Bane, looking more menacing and (and intelligible!) than ever. “Let the games begin!” he shouted, echoing Effie Trinket.

Would you pay money to see 'MacGruber 2'?


Shortly before the release of 2010’s Will Forte-starring action-comedy MacGruber, the Saturday Night Live star told this writer that he would definitely like to make a sequel. “That is a dream scenario,” said the comic.  “Just to be working with the same group of people would be awesome.

Jon Hamm lands first leading-man role in 'Million Dollar Arm'

EW has confirmed that Jon Hamm will headline Disney’s Million Dollar Arm, as first reported by Deadline. The Mad Men star will play sports agent-turned-reality show creator J.B.

Alice Cooper talks about his 'Dark Shadows' cameo -- and his many other memorable onscreen adventures

It doesn’t come as a huge surprise to discover horror movie-lovers Alice Cooper and Tim Burton had plenty to talk about when the rocker turned up to film a cameo in the director’s new, Johnny Depp-starring movie Dark Shadows. “We had dinner one night in London and we both knew every point of reference,” Cooper recalls. “If he would say, ‘Suspiria’ I would say ‘Dario Argento.’ I see the humor in horror as much as Tim or Johnny does, so we really do fit together.”

The “School’s Out” star plays himself in Burton’s big budget adaptation of the bizarre, supernatural soap opera, which opens May 11. It says a great deal about the eccentric nature of the rock star’s filmography that Dark Shadows is likely to stand as one of its less insane entries. In this week’s Entertainment Weekly, Cooper talks at length about appearing in such cinematic curios as the Mae West vehicle Sextette, the infamous musical Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, and the werewolf farrago Monster Dog — as well as his roles in better-received projects like Prince of Darkness and Wayne’s World. READ FULL STORY

Tribeca Film Festival: Elizabeth McGovern on playing English matriarchs

In Cheerful Weather for the Wedding — the kind of fun, exceedingly British film where the humor is the only thing drier than the Sunday roast — Elizabeth McGovern plays the matriarch of an English estate during the early half of the 20th-century trying to make sure her daughter gets married to the right man. Now if that sounds familiar, that means you’re a fan of Downton Abbey, in which McGovern plays Lady Grantham, the show’s Made-in-the-USA queen of the castle.

“It’s definitely in a style, a riff, that’s reminiscent of Downton,” says McGovern, who sports an English accent in the film. “And it’s great if that’s what people think.” READ FULL STORY

Jonathan Frid, original 'Dark Shadows' star, dies at 87

UPDATED: Johnny Depp comments below …

Just a few weeks before his most famous character was to be reborn, the original Barnabas Collins from Dark Shadows has died.

Jonathan Frid, the Canadian actor who brought the suave bloodsucker to life on the 1966-71 gothic soap opera, passed away from natural causes on April 13 in his hometown of Hamilton, Ontario, according to MPI Home Video, which releases the Dark Shadows DVDs.

Dark Shadows inspired a generation of boys — Tim Burton and Johnny Depp among them — to become obsessed with a show originally aimed at their mothers. On May 11, Burton and Depp will debut their passion project: a big-screen version of the tale, with Depp taking on the role Frid originated. READ FULL STORY

Owen Wilson, Zach Galifianakis to star in 'Mad Men' creator's feature debut

Mad Men creator and executive producer Matthew Weiner will time-trip back from the ’60s  — and road trip as well — for his feature debut, You Are Here, starring Owen Wilson and Zach Galifianakis. Weiner is directing the film, based on a script he penned eight years ago. The plot centers on childhood best friends who return to their hometown after Galifianakis’ bipolar character learns that his estranged father had died. Back home, he finds out that his father left him with a sizable inheritance and much more. (Parks and Recreation‘s Amy Poehler is also in negotiations for a costarring role.) The movie is slated to begin shooting in May, during Mad Men‘s hiatus, and marks Weiner’s first time in the film director’s chair, though he has helmed multiple episodes of the Emmy-friendly AMC drama, which aired its fifth-season premiere on Sunday.
