Tom Hardy is currently in New York City filming Animal Rescue, which sounds like a terrible romantic comedy along the lines of This Means War, but don’t worry, fans of Bronson and The Dark Knight Rises. According to the plot summary, this film is right in Hardy’s badass wheelhouse:
A crime-drama centered around a lost pit bull, a wannabe scam artist, and a killing.
Simple enough. But just in case it wasn’t as easy as walking up to any woman in New York and saying, “Hi, I’m Tom Hardy, star of Inception and the new Mad Max”, before making her panties vanish, Hardy decided to take a break from filming to hang out with a little kid dressed as his Bane character from The Dark Knight Rises.
This also comes just a few weeks after he was walking around the set with a tiny pit bull puppy. I guess what I’m trying to say is that if we don’t stop him now, Hardy is going to get every girl in America pregnant by Friday.
With just 4 days until it’s release, Warner Brothers is finally giving critics who have seen ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ permission to publish their reviews, and according to the few that are online now, it seems Christopher Nolan is still really really good at making movies. Empire gives it 5 stars, saying:
”With spectacle in abundance, this is superhero filmmaking on an unprecedented scale.”
“Big-time Hollywood filmmaking at its most massively accomplished, this last installment of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy makes everything in the rival Marvel universe look thoroughly silly and childish.”
“…one of the year’s most impressive efforts so far in any genre, on any subject … Whoever Warner Bros hires to reboot the “Batman” films a few years from now, I wish you luck. The bar is as high as it could possibly be.”
It’s still almost two months until we can see The Dark Knight Rises (July 20), but Christopher Nolan was at the MTV Movie Awards last night to introduce what was essentially a new trailer, at least half of which was all new footage with Catwoman and Batman setting up how scary Bane is. At least to people who refuse to carry guns.
The final trailer for ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ will premier in front of ‘The Avengers’ on Friday, but Warner Bros. put it on youtube last night (you can also watch it in 1080 on a Warner Bros. link here, or I put the 1080 version on mediafire and rapidshare which you can download here or here) and it shows a lot. Maybe even more than you want to know.
POSSIBLE HEAVY SPOILERS UNDER THE CUT. OR ME JUST BLINDLY GUESSING. ONE OF THOSE TWO:
We still have 3 days to wait for the trailer to ‘Prometheus‘, the sorta ‘Alien’ prequel from director Ridley Scott, but today the trailer for ‘Wrath of the Titans‘ showed up. That of course is the sequel to ‘Clash of the Titans’, and it returns to Greece (which has a secret rocky desert that only Hollywood knows about) so Sam Worthington can yell at scary CGI monsters before stabbing them.
And if you didn’t see it, the trailer for the Dark Knight Rises was finally released yesterday too. Now the only questions are if they’ll ever put the 7 minute prologue online, and does the touchdown by Hines Ward still count. Hopefully not, or else Jerry Jones might try that exploding field thing.
