Wes Anderson's new film Moonrise Kingdom, starring Edward Norton, Bruce Willis, Tilda Swiinton and Bill Murray, will open the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival, appearing at the top of a lineup that includes such buzzworthy films as David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis, starring Robert Pattinson, Walter Salles' On The Road, starring Kristen Stewart, John Hillcoat's Lawless, starring Tom Hardy and Shia LaBeouf, Andrew Dominik's Killing Them Softly, starring Brad Pitt, and Lee Daniels' The Paperboy, starring Zac Efron and Matthew McConaughey, among others.
Perhaps Dark Knight Rises director Christopher Nolan was not satisfied with the reception his new Batman movie got at last week's CinemaCon in Las Vegas, when he showed the audience still footage from The Dark Knight Rises, which will star old mainstays Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, and Morgan Freeman, as well as Batman newcomers Liam Neeson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, and Marion Cotillard (three of whom starred in Nolan's well-received 2010 summer flick, Inception).
The Dark Knight Rises, directed by Inception's celebrated Christopher Nolan and featuring a staggeringly star-studded cast that includes Anne Hathaway (Catwoman), Tom Hardy (Bane), Liam Neeson (Ra's Al Ghul), Gary Oldman (Jim Gordon), Morgan Freeman (Lucius), Joseph Gordon-Levitt (John Blake), Michael Caine (Alfred), Marion Cotillard (Miranda), and of course Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne / Batman himself, promises to be one of the biggest blockbusters of the summer.
In This Means War, Chris Pine, 31, and co-star Tom Hardy play spies (and BFF's) who discover they've fallen for the same woman, played by Reese Witherspoon. At the UK premiere of the movie, the blue-eyed Pine said he could empathize with the conflict but didn't have any personal experience with it.
Not everyone in "the biz" is as smitten with late night talk show host-turned sitcom comedian Chelsea Handler, 36, as she is with herself. She was just publically dissed by funnywoman veteran Joan Rivers, 78.
Chelsea Handler can't stand Reese Witherspoon. That's the gag in the latest episode of Handler's show After Lately, on which Witherspoon will made her second cameo this weekend, according to Pop Sugar.
July can't seem to come soon enough for those of us anxiously awaiting the release of The Dark Knight Rises. Fortunately, some kind soul was nice enough to bootleg an amazing two minute trailer of the final installment of Christopher Nolan's Batman franchise.
If you happened to catch I Am Legend in IMAX four years ago, you may remember being one of the first people to get a glimpse of the opening bank heist scene of Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight — and of the late Heath Ledger's Oscar-winning performance as Joker.
As production on The Dark Knight Rises nears its end (the movie is set for a July 20, 2012 release date), so-called "spy pictures" from on-set in New York City ... well, rise. In addition to photos and videos of a large-scale riots and hostages adorned in bright-colored blazers, from MovieWeb.
While all the talk seems to be about Tom Hardy and Anne Hathaway, new additions to the Christopher Nolan-led Dark Knight franchise, Christian Bale is still its hero. Reprising his role as billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne and his masked alter-ego Batman, Bale was in New York City on Friday shooting the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises.
America loves heroes. More than apple pie, baseball, Elvis Presley, and pretty-boy vampires combined, America loves a winner. Drunk so much of the time on its own rose-tinted mythology America loves underdog stories.
Captain America's Chris Evans is not the only one who's been beefing up for his movie role. Take a good, long look at British actor Tom Hardy, 33, the star of the forthcoming Warrior. Co-starring Nick Nolte and directed by Gavin O'Connor, Warrior features Hardy as the son of an washed-up, former fighter (Nolte) who relies on his dad's training to become a competitor in a hardcore, mixed martial arts tournament.
Having already served as a tantalizing appetizer before the feast to the legion of Muggles that helped Harry Potter shatter the opening weekend box office record – ironically a record previously held up until now by The Dark Knight – the teaser trailer for director Christopher Nolan’s much-anticipated conclusion to his exhilarating, ultra-violent superhero saga now makes its way to the Internet.
