First, Warner Bros. released an image of Henry Cavill as Superman in the MAN OF STEEL reboot, and now they’ve done it again with this first look at Anne Hathaway as Catwoman in the Christopher Nolan directed THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Yes, there’s not much going on here (and there’s no way this is the final Cat-suit), but at least it’s a nice taste of what to expect from the third and final chapter in Nolan’s BATMAN trilogy.

Movie Review: SUPER

Rating: R Stars: Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page, Kevin Bacon, Liv Tyler, Nathan Fillion Writer: James Gunn Director: James Gunn Distributor: IFC Midnight Release Date: April 1, 2011 There is nothing whatsoever wrong with being part of a subgenre. For example, despite the existence of ALIEN, it’s perfectly possible to make a terrific new movie about scary extraterrestrials – which SUPER writer/director James Gunn actually did a few years back with his horror comedy SLITHER. Gunn’s new film SUPER fits into the non-super-powered superhero genre. The giant monolith in this field is obviously BATMAN, but SUPER belongs to an even smaller […]Read On »

The X List: Catwoman of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES: 5 Things You Need To Know

Well, now we know: The two villains that will square off against Christian Bale’s gravelly-voiced Gotham City crusader in the third Christopher Nolan-helmed Batman film DARK KNIGHT RISES will be Catwoman (purrfect) and Bane (snap!) played by Anne Hathaway and Tom Hardy, respectively. With a fan base not only devoutly dedicated to the many years of continuity in the Bat-comics, but impressed by Nolan’s unique, some might even say pseudo-realistic take on the surreal shenanigans of the cowled one and his extensive rogues’ gallery, how exactly do you handle reintroducing both of these antagonists in a way sure to please […]Read On »

CD Review: BATMAN RETURNS: LIMITED EDITION soundtrack (3500 edition)

Few composers have more fun unleashing their devilishly twisted side like Danny Elfman, especially when longtime collaborator Tim Burton truly lets his creativity go bats**t. But if one film takes that cake in their always-eccentric pairings, then it would be the shining piece of comic book coal called BATMAN RETURNS. Sure their first BATMAN was dark, but no one expected the moral bestiality that would result from the pairing of The Bat, The Cat and The Penguin, a ménage a trois complete with whip-wielding S & M, intended child homicide and a very bloody nose- all prancing about to the […]Read On »

Warner Bros. announced today that Anne Hathaway will strap on the leather to play Selena Kyle, aka Catwoman in the Christopher Nolan directed THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Frankly, it couldn’t be a better fit. She’s got the feline grace and the acting chops to pull it off. Meanwhile, Tom Hardy’s role in the movie has been confirmed too. He’s playing the villainous Bane. You’d think Warner’s would have split the two announcements, but hey, at least we have an idea and a direction of where the new Nolan film is heading. What do you think? Love the choices? Hate them? […]Read On »
