umm… Spoiler Alert

By brendon August 15, 2011 @ 2:38 PM

There’s a new rumor going around the internet that says the Batwing, Batmans plane, makes an appearance in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’, and the basis for that claim is that you can watch the fucking thing chase Bane down the street in this video. And in the videos here and here, people with cameras just walk right up to it.

I suddenly miss movies like ‘Cloverfield’ where they went insane to keep any spoilers from getting out. If you asked them what their monster looked like, they’d say, “none of your god dammed business.” If you asked ‘Dark Knight’ if they had a Batwing, they say, “yeah, in fact it’s right over here. Come on, I’ll show you and then you can fly it.”

Bane has a weird voice

‘The Dark Knight Rises’ has practically become a play at this point as they continue to film right out in the open all over Pittsburgh, which has lead to quite a few heavy spoilers already. Hopefully this is not another one.

As G4 explains…

The scene in question takes place in Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field, where a game with the “Gotham Rogues” (who in the film, will be lead by Steelers quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger), gets taken over.
After a large explosion of some kind, Bane takes the field with microphone in hand and gives the crowd a bizarre manifesto-type monologue.
…But, the thing is, his voice is really…weird.

In the video, Bane says, “behold, the instrument of your liberation,” then someone is made to kneel before him, and then he says, “identify yourself to the world”. And for some reason he sounds sort of like Lemmy. On a side note, “the instrument of you liberation” is also what I call my penis on Thanksgiving when I dress up like a pilgrim and my girlfriend dresses up like an Indian and I pretend to rape her. This is gonna be a sexy movie.

its Anne Hathaway as Catwoman

catwoman

Christopher Nolan has tried to make his Batman moves seem grounded in reality, so you’ll never see a bad guy say “ICE to see you” and then spray you with ice and Batman doesn’t carry shark repellent on his belt. But I guess that get’s tiring and so when it came time for Catwoman he just said fuck it. “Cats love chasing those laser pointer lights, let’s just give her some glasses with those.”

(giant full size picture here. below are the pics of her on set yesterday in Pittsburgh.)

Batman fights Bane outside a courthouse, apparently

‘The Dark Knight Rises’ filmed in Pittsburgh over the weekend, and if you liked the first two Christopher Nolan Batman movies but thought they needed more fighting on courthouse steps, good news, because that shit totally happens in the third one. Specifically Batman fighting Bane on some steps. And though he’s not listed by the paparazzi agency and I can’t find any mention of him, that also looks like the first picture of Joseph Gordon Levitt, who plays a beat cop named John Blake.

Oh, um, “spoiler alert”.

Actually, after that Marion Cotillard arrived and ruined all kinds of shit that I probably didn’t want to know about, so, seriously, THERE MAY BE HEAVY SPOILERS HERE. Don’t keep reading if you don’t want to know.

HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS, PART 2 – basically broke every major box office record there is this weekend, including ‘first midnight showing’ ($43.5M), ‘opening day’ ($92.1M), ‘weekend: domestic’ ($168.5M), ‘weekend: worldwide’ ($475.5M), and ‘most malleable fanbase’. (mojo)

CASH CAB – is that game show where a taxi driver asks real customers trivia questions during their ride, and a producer for the Canadian version hit and killed a guy with the Cash Cab in Vancouver this weekend. Will he stick with one, or try and hit someone else and double his money? Find out after this break! (fox)

JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE – has accepted the youtube invitation to the Marine Corps Ball with Cpl. Kelsey de Santis. Or at least he’ll go, “If my schedule works out.” And she’ll go if she hasn’t been shot to death. Leave it to Timberlake to find a way to say yes yet still look like a pretentious jackass. (cnn)

THE DARK KNIGHT RISESfinally has it’s teaser trailer officially online, over on it’s facebook page. It’s still not available in 1080 full-screen like most other trailers though, because Warner Brothers seems to think this bullshit is cute. (facebook)

THE AVENGERS – doesn’t come out until next year, but it has a teaser trailer (maybe meant only for Comic-Con, which begins Wednesday night) that has leaked online. But don’t get too excited because this a bootleg, and it’s terrible. It’s like he hid the camera in a glass of chocolate milk. (youtube, megaupload)

LAURA CROFT – hosted a pool party at the Flamingo hotel in Vegas this weekend, and all I know about her is that she was the Playmate in July of 2008, her ass is terrific, and she has the laziest fake Playboy name ever. (wenn)

The Dark Knight Rises teaser sort of sucks

‘The Dark Knight Rises’, the third and final Batman movie from director Christopher Nolan, only began filming on May 5th, and won’t be released until July 20th, 2012, but Warner Brothers wanted a trailer for it in front of ‘Harry Potter’ today, and so the trailer they got is mostly footage from the first two movies. It’s not online yet, all there is are a few bootleg copies like this one, but the only payoff is two fleeting glimpses of Bane set to stirring music. But at least Warner Brothers got their trailer to make people aware of Batman 3. Otherwise it would have come and gone and no one would have even known.

LITIGIOUS UPDATE – I had to take the trailer down because Warner Brothers yelled at me about posting a bootleg. Because people were watching it. Which of course is the point of a trailer. It makes a lot of sense if you think about it.
