'The Dark Knight Rises': Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway talk 'End of a Legend' in Blu-ray featurette -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

The finale to Christopher Nolan’s caped crusader triptych, The Dark Knight Rises, may be about redemption, but it’s also about endings. Finalizing Nolan’s trilogy, Christian Bale’s broken down Batman rises up from the depths, physically and emotionally, to defeat his own resignation and kick Tom Hardy’s evil Bane behind.

Check out this exclusive clip from the featurette The End of a Legend, one of the many extras included in the movie’s upcoming Blu-ray combo pack. The Dark Knight Rises Blu-ray, DVD, and digital download touch down on Dec. 4. Hardy, Anne Hathaway (Catwoman/Selina Kyle), Morgan Freeman (Fox), Michael Caine (Alfred), and Gary Oldman (Commissioner Gordon) sound off on working with Nolan. READ FULL STORY

Casting Net: Robert Pattinson set for 'Hold On to Me.' Plus: Tyler Perry, Amy Adams, Tom Hardy

• Tyler Perry will star in (as well as write, produce, and direct) Single Mom’s Club, about a group of single mothers who come together after an episode at their local school. No word on what Perry’s role would be, but hopefully it does not involve hunting ruthless assassins a la this weekend’s Alex Cross — that would just be weird. Lionsgate is in final talks to distribute. [Variety]

Amy Adams is attached to play legendary rocker Janis Joplin in the biopic Janis Joplin: Get It While You Can, which Lee Daniels is in negotiations to direct. First time feature screenwriters Ron Terry (who is also producing) and Theresa Kounin-Terry penned the script. [THR]

• Tom Hardy is attached to an untitled drama about an ex-special forces soldier who tries to stop illegal poaching in Zimbabwe. Sheldon Turner (Up in the Air) is penning the script, with Hardy, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Tobey Maguire among the producers. The trio of actors is also keen on a separate film that also tackles the poaching industry from a Traffic-like ensemble perspective, but no writer is yet set for that project. [Deadline]

• John Leguizamo is in talks to costar with Ice Cube and Kevin Hart in Ride Along, a comedy about a teacher who accompanies a cop — who is also his fiancée’s brother — on a day’s patrol. Leguizamo would play an undercover police officer. Tim Story (Think Like a Man) is directing. [Variety]

'The Dark Knight Rises' out on Blu-ray, DVD on Dec. 4 -- EXCLUSIVE

Holy smokes, Batman. The rumors, speculation and general chit-chat can be put to rest.

Christopher Nolan’s Batman epic The Dark Knight Rises will be released on Blu-ray combo pack, DVD, and digital download on Dec. 4, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group announced exclusively to EW.

The last film in Nolan’s dark, gritty Gotham City trilogy, starring Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, and Tom Hardy as brutal villain Bane, will also be available in a limited edition Blu-ray Bat Cowl collectible package — not quite in time for your Halloween costume, but there’s always next year.

The Blu-ray combo pack is stuffed with a bunch of extras, from a documentary about the Batmobile, where all five Batmobiles are together for the first time, to Ending the Knight, an in-depth look featuring about 17 featurettes at how Nolan and his production team made The Dark Knight Rises, from Batman vs. Bane to totally demolishing a city street. Both the Blu-ray and DVD include a featurette called The Journey of Bruce Wayne. There are also trailers and art galleries.

'Lawless' red-band trailer: Booze, bullets, blood, and bosoms! -- NSFW VIDEO

Before the Internet, it was nearly impossible to get a true sense of what a hard-R rated movie was like from its trailer, which the MPAA insists must be palatable for all audiences. But thanks to the proliferation of the online red-band trailer — which can only be shown in a movie theatre before R-rated movies, and even that rarely happens — we can get a far more accurate idea of what’s in store for a movie like, say, the upcoming Depression-era thriller Lawless, starring Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf, and Jason Clarke as the bootlegging Bondurant brothers. And indeed, the new red-band trailer makes clear the film, which opens Wed., Aug. 29, is chockablock with confrontations both savage and sexy. Check it out below:  READ FULL STORY

Gary Oldman talks 'Dark Knight Rises' ending, and Tom Hardy spills on Bane inspiration

At the star-studded premiere of Dark Knight Rises last night (check out a compilation of live-stream footage here) the stars were ready to talk about the final film in Christopher Nolan’s epic trilogy — but they were tight-lipped as far as plot specifics. (No big details are given away, but for those that want to remain totally spoiler free, here is your SPOILER ALERT!)

Gary Oldman, who plays police commissioner Gordon in the films, told EW when asked about the ending, “It packs an emotional punch, this one,” Oldman said. “And it’s got hope. [Dark Knight wasn’t so hopeful.] But we still had another one to make. [This one] has got a nice, uplifting theme to it.”

Christian Bale agreed with Oldman’s assessment of the tone. He told EW, “There’s a lot of complexities to it.” But as to whether or not Dark Knight Rises would feel different from Dark Knight, Bale didn’t want to distinguish. “I kind of feel like [the trilogy] is one movie anyway,” he said.

'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.

'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
