Newest Stills from TDKR

Last week saw a few new stills from The Dark Knight Rises, touted as “the first view of the Batcave.”  It isn’t exactly.  But it’s Christian Bale in front of the Bat Suit in its case and Gary Oldman in front of a brown stoneish wall.  Tom Hardy again.  We think Bane is a promising villain but we can’t really see the fascination with another close up.  Or another long shot for that matter.  We get it.  He’s… Bane.

“Sorry to spoil things, boys…” Did LA Times overstep on Anne Hathaway Catwoman interview?

LA Times Online’s “Hero Complex” is running an interview with Anne Hathaway where she “Talks The Dark Knight Rises Catwoman.”  As was noted on Twitter, what she actually does is perhaps more reminiscent of her Princess Diaries past, for as was said of the late Princess Diana, she demonstrates the art of saying (almost) nothing with great distinction.

Hathaway talks about the origin of her character in Batman #1 (and narrowly misses insulting Bob Kane in the process!) and its inspiration in screen actress Hedy Lamarr, said to be the most beautiful woman of her day, how she studied the actress for her performance, etc.  Standard actress stuff.  She repeats her defense of the disappointing costume, but she reveals no specifics about her character or the plot.  She merely makes general comments about Selina and her ties to Gotham City, and how any individual Catwoman ties to a creator’s version of the city.

LA Times Interview with The Dark Knight Rises Catwoman Anne Hathaway contains major spoilers

Hathaway herself spoils nothing.  LA Times columnist Geoff Boucher, on the other hand, describes a scene and plot point in detail.   He opens with it so you’ve read it before you knew what was coming.  (An advisory has since been added to the top of the article.)

Could Warner Bros., Christopher Nolan and producers have known this was coming when they gave him access?

Readers are advised to avoid this interview and remain unspoiled, but if you absolutely must, follow the link to the full Hero Complex material.

Dark Knight Rises Set Photos: More pics from TDKR location shooting in NYC, LA and Pittsburgh

Everyone who is anyone knows Gotham City is New York, but creating the imagery for The Batman’s City is too big a job for one city to handle.  Christopher Nolan primarily used Chicago for the first two films, but for The Dark Knight Rises has used parts of London, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, and of course Manhattan.

Below find assorted pictures from the multi-city location shooting to supplement those archived elsewhere throughout this blog.

Wayne Enterprises on Fifth Avenue

(AP) – The entrance to Trump Tower, renamed Wayne Enterprises, is shown on Fifth Avenue, Friday, Oct. 28, 2011 in New York. The building, or at least this one entrance, will stand in for part of the new Wayne Enterprises HQ in The Dark Knight Rises, Christopher Nolan’s third and final installment in his Batman trilogy, starring Christian Bale (Bruce Wayne/Batman), Anne Hathaway (Selina Kyle/Catwoman), Tom Hardy (Bane), Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotillard.

Many cities, including London, Pittsburgh, and parts of Los Angeles have stood in for sections of Gotham in this installment, while previous Nolan films have relied mostly on locations in Chicago.  Since Gotham is New York City, it is fitting that at least some location shooting was finally done here.

Top Posts of the Week: Arkham City’s 15 minutes are up. TDKR back on top. Interest keen in Batman-Bane fight and all Dark Knight location shooting.

Looks like Arkham City’s 15 minutes are up.  The week was full of interest in The Dark Knight Rises filming, particularly the Batman/Bane fight, and the  unflagging interest in anything involving Anne Hathaway, Catwoman and the word ‘sexy.’  Old pictures from the location shooting in Pittsburgh months ago are getting more requests than anything pertaining to the game released only last week.  It is quite an anti-climax after their months of relentless  hype.

Production Images from #TDKR NYC Locations | Examiner.com

Nothing dazzling, but Examiner.com has a few images from NYC filming of The Dark Knight Rises, Christopher Nolan’s third and final installment of his Batman trilogy.   Morgan Freeman (Lucius Fox) and Marion Cotillard (Miranda Tate) are said to be on set, but not pictured.  Most interesting among the pics is the Batwing on a rooftop, although the Examiner does not seem aware that we saw a lot of it in action in Pittsburgh, as well as some suspiciously high-quality stills to glean details and a video of Batman (Christian Bale) and Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) filmed in front of it.  So no scoop here on the ‘Wing, but still new pics.

The filming has continued in Newark, New Jersey at the City Hall building. The images show that the hallways have been filled with cots possibly for infirmary type scenes and notices were posted to be careful of fires and small explosions. Actors Morgan Freeman and Marion Cotillard were both on location filming scenes. Parts of the building where also converted into a ghetto, where extras were carrying machine guns, bright lights were shining, and chairs were lined up everywhere.
