Last November, 4-year-old Jayden Barber was diagnosed with a terminal case of myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) leukemia. Jayden's dying wish was to meet Batman, so friends and family teamed up to have local actors pose as Batman, Wonder Woman, Spider-Man and Captain America and meet Jayden as he rode in a Batmobile and flashed the Bat signal.
But shortly after that event, Jayden got a call from the "real" Batman, Christian Bale, who flew Jayden and his entire family to Disneyland, where the two finally got to meet. And you'll never believe what happened next.
'The Dark Knight Rises' was arguably the biggest movie of summer 2012, next to 'The Avengers.' Warner Bros. tortured us for what seemed like months on end with spoilery movie stills, trailers, TV spots, posters and random clips, but there's plenty more of this blockbuster to be seen.
There are two things Christian Bale seems to look for when he considers joining a film. First, he likes to work with an established, acclaimed director who'll surely pull the absolute best out of him (see Christopher Nolan, David O. Russell, Terrence Malick, Michael Mann, Todd Haynes, Werner Herzog and, um, McG). Secondly, he'll only play the role if it's a relentlessly grim character in an impossibly grim film where no one smiles or laughs. Ever.
As victims of last weekend's horrible shooting tragedy in Aurora, Co. try and recover from their terrifying experience, one actor has taken it upon himself to visit those currently receiving care at a local Denver hospital. Christian Bale flew out to Denver to visit those affected by the shocking shooting that occurred just a few days ago.
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?
One of the first posters for Christopher Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ promised that ‘The Legend Ends.’ And now, as we inch closer to Nolan’s third and reported final installment in his Batman franchise, the director and his star suggest it might be the true end … or it might not.
As if the first TV Spot wasn't enough, Christopher Nolan's 'The Dark Knight Rises' premiered a second TV spot tonight. And both are great! If you weren't excited for this film before, maybe this spot will get you revved up for the return and the end of Nolan's Batman trilogy.
