Who doesn’t love a good stop motion animated trailer made out of LEGO. Though it is already out on DVD and Blu-Ray, this Dark Knight Rises trailer done in minature has me wanting to see an entire movie done this way.
We’ve intentionally not talked about the theater shootings in Aurora, Colorado for a number of reason, but mainly because there has been nothing positive to come from the “news” and speculation/pundits outlets to provide anything of real meaning. However, when someone does something positive, not for their own image, but to make those suffering feel better, it does deserve some attention.
That’s why we are giving Christian Bale the Major Spoilers Hero Award. Mr. Bale took it upon himself to visit the hospital where survivors of the shooting are recovering. According to reports, the actor spent time with each of the patients, and also spent time with those that were the first responders to the crime scene. According to Warner Bros., “Mr. Bale is there as himself, not representing Warner Brothers.”
Regardless of what you think of the actor or the movie, it is Christian Bale’s actions that speak volumes. This is yet another example of someone who didn’t have to do anything, but did it for the right reason.
The conclusion to Nolan’s Batman trilogy is finally here!
Nearly a decade after taking the fall for Harvey Dent’s death and disappearing into the darkness, a fugitive Batman (Christian Bale) watches from the shadows as the Dent Act keeps the streets of Gotham City crime free. Meanwhile, an elusive cat burglar seizes the chance to strike, and a masked anarchist plots a devastating series of attacks designed to lure Bruce Wayne out of the shadows. Determined not to abandon the people who he once risked his life to protect, The Dark Knight emerges from his self-imposed exile ready to fight. But Bane (Tom Hardy) is ready, too, and once Batman is within his grasp, he will do everything in his power to break Gotham City’s shadowy savior.
Did you go see the movie? Why or why not? What did you think? Was it everything you thought it would be, or did Nolan betray you like that spinning top at the end of Inception?

As Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy comes to a close, Batman faces his toughest challenge yet in Bane. Does the final film provide the proper ending for an epic trilogy or has Nolan run out of gas? Major Spoilers has the review.
This gets a little on the weird side before the big pay-off, but I think Friday is a perfect time to inject a smile on your faces.
Looking for a trailer that ties all the Nolan Batman films together? Here it is.
Last night actress Anne Hathaway made an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman. There is a lot of talk about the movie, and toward the end, Letterman throws out the ending for the film that may or may not be true (though I think it just might be).
Better watch it now, before someone decides the video violates something or other…
Here’s a trio who got it right.
Of course, not being at the show, I couldn’t tell you how many people dressed as Bane and Batman are running around, but I’m gonna bet the number is quite large this year. The bigger question is, how many are dressed as Catwoman?

Some Not Safe For Work language in this humorous take on The Dark Knight Rises, but it is worth it.

There was a low quality version of the new television trailer for The Dark Knight Rises that was floating around the last couple of days, but we prefer the high quality version that arrived today.
