'The Dark Knight Rises' First Wave Of Reviews

As I'm combing through these reviews it's safe to say that Christopher Nolan has not only met the high expectations of fans and critics, but more importantly conquered the curse of the third film in a franchise. Which is something that eluded films like Godfather 3, Alien 3, Superman III, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and Toy Story 3, just to name a few.

Final The Dark Knight Rises Trailer Hits

Warner Bros. has released what will presumably be the final trailer for the film.  Entitled “Journey”, the latest trailer pulls clips from Batman Begins and The Dark Knight before showing how Bane’s arrival in Gotham will force Batman to join an all-out street war.  There are some new pieces of footage in this trailer, but it doesn't look like there are any major spoilers.

'God of War' Back Gets A New Writer Duo

The last update I heard regarding a big screen version of the hit video game God of War placed Brett Ratner as the adaptation's director when the project was still at Universal Pictures. Now, years later, Sony Pictures is starting fresh on the property and The Hollywood Reporter says that the studio has brought aboard Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan to draft a screenplay.

Awesome old School 'Dark Knight Rises' Midnight IMAX Poster

One final IMAX midnight poster has been revealed on Fandango (via that features Bane and nothing but Bane, played by Tom Hardy. I know we've seen an inordinate amount of The Dark Knight Rises posters and banners and photos recently, but we're down to the last few weeks—days, almost—so why not go all out, throw everything on the table, and end this thing with a bang. All 12:01AM IMAX moviegoers will get one.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey gets a Massive Banner!

Whoa, what kind of odd marketing is this? Entertainment Weekly (via ComingSoon) has unveiled a new banner for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit that, in 5000px of horizontal digital space, visualizes the entire story. Or at least, the entire story that I think we'll be seeing in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Lots of great visuals and imagery in this as a perfect tease for The Hobbit. Take a look after the jump!

13-Minute TV Special on The Dark Knight Rises!

For the next two weeks, avoiding spoilers for The Dark Knight Rises might be as easy as tiptoeing through a minefield. Press screenings have begun, which means fan screenings will soon start, too, and all the secrets to Christopher Nolan‘s highly anticipated conclusion of his Batman trilogy will be out in the wild. Thankfully, this brand new 13-minute featurette has very little in the way of new spoilers.

The video takes us through the obvious story arc following The Dark Knight, as it talks about cast, characters and gives a great behind the scenes look at several of the big action scenes that have been revealed to date. We see the plane, the football field, Wall Street, and more. Acting as sort of a catch-all to the previously released images, posters, trailers and commercials, this featurette is an absolute perfect way to increase your excitement for the film without ruining too much of the story. Check it out below.

Amazing International Trailer for 'The Tall Man' Horror

Thanks to Vlicious, we have an international (French) trailer for the film The Tall Man. The film is called The Secret in France, written & directed by Pascal Laugier (Martyrs), starring Jessica Biel and Jodelle Ferland, about a guy who takes children. This trailer is way better than I was expecting. It looks totally chilling and unsettling, but also surprisingly well-made. There's a very tense vibe to it, and I'm curious to find out what's really going on. Check this out!
