'The Dark Knight Rises' movie premiere: Watch the live stream replay here!

The Dark Knight Rises may appear to be in part a parable about the dangers of conspicuous displays of excessive wealth, but in the case of the world premiere of the conclusion to Christopher Nolan’s record-breaking Batman saga, a little glitz and glamour seem perfectly called for.

Check out the live stream from the red-carpet event in New York City below to see stars Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, and Marion Cotillard alongside Nolan, fellow writers Jonathan Nolan and David S. Goyer, and fellow producers Emma Thomas and Charles Roven. The festivities start at 6 p.m. ET / 3 p.m. PT. READ FULL STORY

'The Dark Knight Rises': Christopher Nolan cements his place in Hollywood at hand and footprint ceremony

Christopher Nolan will leave big shoes to fill when it comes to future silver screen interpretations of the Batman story, but for now he’s letting his shoes leave their mark – in Hollywood’s most famous cement courtyard, that is. The Dark Knight Rises director was honored during a hand and footprint ceremony at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles today.

Nolan joins 261 other Hollywood luminaries – including Marilyn Monroe, Clark Gable, Julie Andrews and Steven Spielberg – immortalized in the Forecourt to the Stars since 1927.

“This is all a bit surreal for me,” Nolan told the crowd, which included his family, cast members of The Dark Knight Rises, frequent collaborators Wally Pfister and Hans Zimmer, and an assemblage of eager Batman fans. The director – who is also behind such mind-benders as Inception, Memento and The Prestige – then recalled his first visit to Grauman’s at the age of 16. READ FULL STORY

'Dark Knight Rises' TV spot: Catwoman to the rescue

Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman gets an extra-special showcase in the latest TV advertisement for The Dark Knight Rises, Christopher Nolan’s upcoming movie about steroidal anarchists with breathing masks or whatever. “You don’t stand a chance against these guys,” says Anne-Cat. “With your help, I might,” says Bale-Bat.

'Dark Knight Rises' TV spot: Getting strong now?

Fans of Batman are always digging though the Dark Knight’s comic book archives when trying to predict where Christopher and Jonathan Nolan are going to take their hero next. But as The Dark Knight Rises comes more into focus following the release of a third TV spot, it’s becoming clear they might be taking their cues from an entirely different source: the Rocky franchise.

I’m kidding, of course, but there are a few odd parallels between what’s been teased in the trio of recent clips and Rocky III and Rocky IV  — at least if you really want there to be. Most obviously, Bane is an amalgam of Clubber Lang and Ivan Drago, a brutally violent drug-enhanced freak. Like Rocky Balboa, Batman and Bruce Wayne are now enjoying the fruits of their labors and perhaps they’ve grown a little soft. Then, suddenly, Bane strikes, putting Commissioner Gordon in the hospital — read: Mickey’s death — and shaking Batman’s confidence. He’s got to get his mojo back to defend his honor and Gotham, but can he be that hero again? “You’re not Batman anymore,” whines Alfred, in the most recent TV spot. Ouch. That’s almost as harsh as Adrian shouting at Rocky from the top of the stairs in Rocky IV, “You can’t win!” Watch for more clues below. READ FULL STORY

'The Dark Knight Rises' poster: Catwoman leaves her mark

Judging by the brief glimpses of The Dark Knight Rises we’ve seen so far, we know that Batman is going to take a beating — likely at the hands of the muscled terrorist Bane. Anne Hathaway’s cat burglar, on the other hand, has been much more difficult to pin down. Is she part of Bane’s “liberation” front, a freelancer with her own scheme, or a potential ally for our aging hero. The most recent TV spot showcased the semi-playful costume-party banter between Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle, who shrewdly ended up getting her own ride home.

But the newest movie poster — uncovered on the film’s website by a hawk-eyed reader of Batman-News.com — hints that the feline vamp might not flinch from stepping on Batman’s neck, should the opportunity arise. True to the character’s ambivalence, though, she leaves her mark with a kiss. Check it out below.

'The Dark Knight Rises' TV spots: Catwoman? Me-YOW!

Two new TV advertisements released last night for The Dark Knight Rises don’t shine much new light on the closing chapter of Christopher Nolan’s Sad-Batman trilogy. But the clips are still fun, especially if you’re the kind of person who’s been obsessively dissecting ever new piece of DKR minutiae for the last year. The first video features Bruce Wayne talking to his old tech guru Lucius Fox. “I need you to get me back in the game,” he says, sounding like a man who has just returned to public life after a long sabbatical only to discover that the citizens of America have fallen in love with kinder, gentler, more colorful superheros.

'The Dark Knight Rises': Batman, Bane, and Catwoman get striking new character posters

TDKR-Bane-DOM

Turns out, yesterday’s sorta new The Dark Knight Rises poster was just a preamble to three completely new character posters for Christopher Nolan’s final Batman movie. Bane (Tom Hardy), Batman (Christian Bale), and Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) each get their own striking one sheets, featuring the character standing in some harsh rain that appears to transform into tiny sharp rocks as it bounces off their bodies. Behind them sits the word “RISE” in big letters, which for some reason makes me want to spend the rest of my day standing at my desk.

Check out the posters, which debuted today on Yahoo! Movies, below:  READ FULL STORY

'The Dark Knight Rises' trailer: A bleak vision of Batman's future

In four days, by all reports audiences will be streaming in droves to see The Avengers, a big, rousing, brightly-colored superhero movie filled with aliens, Norse gods, and giant green rage monsters. Before that movie begins, however, they’ll see the trailer for a very different kind of superhero movie, The Dark Knight Rises. That trailer was just released on the web, the culmination of a viral marketing campaign that began this morning. The preview paints a bleak, almost nihilistic picture of what awaits audiences on July 20 — check out the trailer below, and then let’s talk about our first impressions:  READ FULL STORY

CinemaCon 2012: 'The Dark Knight Rises' wages class warfare in new footage

The Dark Knight Rises is looking less like a superhero movie and more like a film about civil war or a populist revolution.

Take a look at the people who help you through your day — the store clerk, the hotel bellman, the waiter. Then imagine the working class rising up to attack the people they serve. That’s what the villain Bane appears to be orchestrating in new footage from The Dark Knight Rises, which screened Tuesday at the theater-owner convention CinemaCon.

“What defines cinema and gets people out of the home to watch it, is spectacle,” filmmaker Christopher Nolan said. “What we wanted to do with this story was finish it in the biggest way possible.”

Read a description of the footage after the jump. READ FULL STORY

'Crazy Heart' director nabs Christian Bale, Zoe Saldana, and more for 'Out of the Furnace'

The deals have been inked for Christian Bale, Casey Affleck, Zoe Saldana, and Sam Shepard to join the crime thriller Out of the Furnace. Crazy Heart helmer Scott Cooper wrote and will direct Furnace, which follows two brothers from the Rust Belt. Bale’s Russell Baze is sent to prison, leaving younger brother Rodney (Affleck) to fall in with a violent gang to devastating consequences. When Russell is released from prison, he must choose between retribution and freedom.

“This is a meaty script with characters as strong as they are complex, and we needed powerhouse actors who complement the story,” said Tucker Tooley, co-president of the film’s distributor Relativity Media. “Christian, Casey, Zoe, and Sam each approach everything they do with heart and conviction. We can’t wait to see what each of them brings to this film.”

Saldana plays Bale’s love interest, and Shepard plays the Baze brothers’ uncle. Furnace begins production in Pennsylvania later this month.
