While posting these rarely seen pieces of concept art from “The Dark Knight,” that were created by Rob Bliss (“Watchmen”), I realized there was a segment of Christopher Nolan’s recent Q&A session that was pertinent and that I hadn’t yet posted. To catch you up, Nolan was at the Water Reade Theater in New York’s Lincoln Center as a special guest of the Film Society, he discussed working with Heath Ledger and specifically the filming of the opening scene where we are first introduced to Batman’s nemesis. You can either watch the video below or just read the transcript, both are provided.
Anne Hathaways back was front and center in London at the Wednesday Nov. 5 (sec) premiere of Les Miserables.Hitting the red carpet for the epic film musical based on the classic Broadway show, the newlywed star, 30, made a dramatic appearance in a white Givenchy gown featuring pearl details, draped, off-the-shoulder sleeves — and a rear hemline that completely exposed the actress back, famously slimmed down from rigorous dieting for the intense role.

Anne Hathaway gears up for her third round as host, with musical guest Rihanna on SNL this Saturday
Before playing Chris Nolan’s sadly uninspired angry and bitter version of Selina Kyle, Anne Hathaway sparkled with life and energy whenever she appeared as herself. Her promos for her third time hosting Saturday Night Live are strangely off-kilter and lacking in magic. We hope it returns soon, before she begins promoting her role as Fantine in Les Miserables.

Can’t blame Kim Kardashian for wanting to dress as Catwoman for this year’s Batman-themed Halloween shindig when she went as Poison Ivy to a non-theme party last year. Also can’t fault her for rejecting Christopher Nolan’s angry, bitter version of Selina Kyle in favor of the Michelle Pfeifer costume, sporting claws instead of a gun, and an attitude more befitting the queen of Gotham’s Night.
Kim Kardashian flaunted her best assets in a skin-tight Catwoman PVC suit. The reality star joined boyfriend Kanye West and her family for a Halloween bash at LIV at Fountainebleau in Miami Beach on Wednesday, October 31 night.
Kim was into the character so much that she posed for the photographers with her claws on and her lips pouted. She arrived at the party in a gold Lamborghini with Kanye who was dressed as Batman. Kim’s version of Catwoman is more of the design worn by Michelle Pfeiffer in 1992’s “Batman Returns” while Kanye kept his costume simple with a Batman mask and a balaclava to cover his face.
Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s “Thor” and “Marvel’s The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.
Starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano and Jaimie Alexander with Rene Russo and Anthony Hopkins as Odin, “Thor: The Dark World” is directed by Alan Taylor, produced by Kevin Feige, from a story by Don Payne (credit not final) and screenplay by Christopher Yost and Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely(credit not final) and is based on Marvel’s classic Super Hero Thor, who first appeared in the comic book “Journey into Mystery “ #83 in August, 1962.
“Thor: The Dark World” is presented by Marvel Studios. The executive producers are Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Stan Lee, Victoria Alonso, Craig Kyle and Nigel Gostelow. The film releases November 8, 2013, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
