The studio may not be releasing box office totals for The Dark Knight Rises, but lets be honest, this weekend – Colorado massacre aside – is all about the Batman! Hands down. Nothing short of a cataclysmic happening could knock the 3rd installment of the franchise from topping records.
And Letterman lied. Batman doesn’t arrive at his untimely demise, as he let “slip” during Anne Hathaway’s recent appearance and the rumored method of finalizing the trilogy.
The cast is stellar and above all one stands out – you guessed it – Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
And so this posting is to sing hotness’ praise, so let us delve straight into it.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt rules this film. And without giving too much away, his character suggests the rise of another character close to the films hero namesake. Don’t get us wrong, we were thrilled to see Hathaway hold her ground as Selena Kyle, but all in all its about Gordon-Levitt.
We anxiously await word on if the studio will be able to procure Christian Bale’s further participation.
Tom Hardy and his costars Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Will Estes, Morgan Freeman, Josh Stewart, Scare Crow himself Cillian Murphy and our beloved Joseph Gordon-Levitt were joined by Daughtry, Ron Howard, Dennis Haysbert and Penn Badgley at the world premiere of The Dark Knight Rises on Manhattan’s UWS, yesterday. And the crowd spanned a city block for a glimpse of all that testosterone.
And who can blame them? We ain’t going to complain about the men out-numbering the women at the Batman preview any. To us, that fact is some serious icing on a flavorful cake. A plus with party written all over it. We ain’t greedy or nothing, it merely serves for diversity and keeping busy is all.
We can’t imagine this truly being the end of the re-boot. It just can’t be. We imagine this will break box office records and Bale will be threatened with single-handedly being responsible for the break down of Hollywood itself if he doesn’t return and fulfill his duties.
Alright, that’s a bit much but he has taken the Batman role to new dark heights and for that we can all be eternally grateful.
We still remain with some reservations about the chosen party to take on Cat Woman but as the title suggest, this is about the MEN! Get set for a kick-ass weekend.
The Dark Knight Rises is to the Batman fan what water is to fish. And with director Christopher Nolan announcement that this is to be the last Christian Bale instalment of the series, well, it sorta puts the pressure on all involved to deliver a film of epic proportions. Judging from what we witnessed over the weekend on Wall Street, the flick will deliver this and more!
We just aren’t buying that it will be the last of the mega-blockbusters. Cuz holy Batman, it is about the money, honey!
Sure, there are detractros in the mix. Anne Hathaway, for one, being cast as Cat Woman, makes some folks queasy - less we forget how brilliant Michelle Pfeiffer delivered her purring. But to her defense the suit is sheer hotness. Just saying…
But, alas, to some, it’s merely about the Batman! And if you still want for more, this one has more bad guys than you can shake a 12 inch stick at – including Scarecrow (Murphy.) And 12 inches is a whole lot even for the most insatiable of folks.
We fought our own way onto the set to get a view of the caped crusader 1st hand, this Saturday – it wasn’t easy, just about all of NYPD was present – and managed to walk away with not only a few pics of Bale, in suit, but of his fight scene with Bane (Tom Hardy.)
And without further ado, here is an overview of our pics for y’all to enjoy.
The 2011 OSCAR nominations are out! And although there are really no surprises in who has garnered nominations – most well deserved, there are a few snubs – particularly one – noteworthy. But more gripping on that later.

Now back to our gripes!
What is up with overlooking Mila Kunis? She was just as thrilling in Black Swan as Portman – if not more so. That omission is just plain RUDE! And what about Mark Wahlberg in The Fighter? He is the top biller dammit!
It’s horrible when politics takes over what should be solely based on performance. You know why Portman was nominated – we needn’t supply you with a cause…
