A new image of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ villain, Bane has hit the net! The big man, who isn’t too keen on Batman, is being played by Tom Hardy (Inception, Bronson), and new images of him on-set and in his costume in Pittsburgh have been released. Check out the one I thought to be the best glimpse, below:
So, what do you reckon? Intimidating or what? You wouldn’t wanna cross this guy in a dark alley. Tom Hardy, who became especially popular after his portrayal of the character Eames in Christopher Nolan’s 2010 hit Inception, has reportedly gained 30lbs in weight in order to play the venom-filled beast who is apparently set to deal big damage to the Dark Knight in the upcoming third and final Batman installment from Christopher Nolan (who just turned 41 yesterday, if you didn’t know). Shooting is currently taking place in Pittsburgh, with numerous images and videos being caught, including this video of a few Tumblers getting ready for action:
Looks awesome, don’t you think? There appears to be three Tumblers, each with a slight difference to them. Has Bane managed to get his hands on them? Or is Batman just calling on ol’ pal Commissioner Gordon (Gary Oldman) to get behind the wheel again? Or is there a totally different explanation?
Numerous others have been seen on set, too, including Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Blake and Marion Cotillard as Wayne Enterprise Board Member and possible love interest to Bruce Wayne, Miranda Tate. Much more will be heading our way soon, so keep an eye out for constant updates.
The Dark Knight Rises is set to hit cinema screens on 20th July, 2012…less than a year away!

There have been numerous pandemics and health scares in the past, with many fearing that they would catch a life-threatening disease going around. Contagion, directed by Steven Soderbergh (Ocean’s Eleven, Twelve & Thirteen), sees the world-wide outbreak of a deadly disease that can be caught merely through contact. The virus spreads across the whole planet, killing masses of humans in just days. A team of medics is all that stands between the mutating virus, and the certain death of the human population.
With a great cast, consisting of Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Gywneth Paltrow & Jude Law, this movie seems promising. Also starring, are more top actors, including Laurence Fishburne, John Hawkes and Marion Cotillard (who starred in Inception and is in the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises). Comedian, Demetri Martin, also appears to be part of the cast, too, and although I’m not sure what he’ll be doing in the movie, he is a favourite comedian of mine, so that’s a plus. Check out the trailer for this sci-fi/action-thriller below:
So, what do you think? Is this a future classic, or just another mediocre movie to be added to the pile? Share your opinions with us. Contagion, is set to hit to hit US theatres on the 9th September, and is released in the UK on the 21st October.

The upcoming sure-to-be-smash-hit of 2011, The Dark Knight Rises, directed by Christopher Nolan, is currently in the process of filming. But for those of us such as myself, who cannot wait for this movie, a little present is in store, to keep the anticipation and excitement flowing.
An image of the character, Bane (Tom Hardy, Inception) has been leaked online. Bane also featured in one of the previous pre-Nolan Batman flicks, Batman & Robin, which we all know was an utter failure. Many believe that The Dark Knight Rises will fail to live up to expectations in comparison to its outstanding predecessor, The Dark Knight, but I simply beg to differ; Nolan, is an amazing director and producer, and I know he has big things in store for us – and this little image is merely a miniscule crumb of the delicious pie that is to come…
The Dark Knight Rises hits cinemas on 20th July, 2012.

The latest news is that French actress Marion Cotillard, has joined the cast for the upcoming Bat-flick, The Dark Knight Rises. Cotillard, who played Mal, in blockbuster, Inception, is reported to have joined the cast, although there is no news as of yet as to what her role will be in the highly anticipated movie.
Cotillard will be joining Tom Hardy and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, both of whom also starred in Inception, directed by Christopher Nolan, who will also be directing TDKR. So, another cast member of Inception is brought into TDKR. I feel that this cast is definitely an interesting selection, and I have a good feeling that the movie will turn out to be an amazingly brilliant one, just like its predecessor, The Dark Knight Rises (for those of you who don’t know; although, if you didn’t know that, there is no hope for you).
This lovely bunch will be working alongside Anne Hathaway, who will be playing Catwoman. The Dark Knight Rises, will begin shooting this summer in Los Angeles, and is set to hit the big screens on 20th July, 2012. This will be a movie not to be missed. Guaranteed.
