Yesterday marked the beginning of the end of 'The Dark Knight Rises,' as all the stars and crew behind the final Christopher Nolan-directed Batman trilogy came out to New York City yesterday for the premiere. And what better location to host the 'Dark Knight Rises' premiere than the so named real-life city of Gotham.
Remember that awesome ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ footage Christian Bale, Gary Oldman and Joseph Gordon-Levitt brought to the MTV Movie Awards? The one that was pulled offline immediately after Warner allowed it to be screened as part of the program? Well, it’s back online – in HD – and you don’t have to endure thousands of screaming ‘Twilight’ fans to enjoy it.
Has ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ official site not existed before today? Maybe when the entire Internet is dedicated to every aspect of your film production, you really don’t need a 'Dark Knight Rises' official site. After all, what can you put on it that hasn’t been leaked to another site, already?
Why didn’t ‘The Devil Wear Prada’ get a sequel? Even ‘Garfield’ got ‘A Tale of Two Kitties.’ And ‘Prada’ was a flat-out hit. It earned $326M worldwide (on a reported $35M budget). It nabbed Meryl Streep yet another Oscar nomination. And it elevated the already rising stars of both Anne Hathaway and Emily Blunt. All of these factors should have led to a sequel. Now, 6 years later, it just might.
Yesterday you got to see some photos of the 'Les Miserables' cast so you know how they look as your favorite characters, but what do Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe sound like when they're singing your favorite 'Les Mis' songs? The 'Les Miserables' trailer is here and you can find out.
Tom Hooper caught a lot of grief as his ‘The King’s Speech’ rode the Oscar campaign trail two years ago, primarily because his excellent film was deemed “not as excellent” as David Fincher’s ‘The Social Network’ by vocal film columnists. But in the process of arguing for ‘Network’ (which is great), most overlooked the fact that ‘Speech’ is deftly directed and superbly acted. Hooper’s the real deal, and he’s the perfect fit for ‘Les Miserables,’ which we get a good look at today.
