Cat’s Out of the Bag

At long last, Warner Bros. has given us fanboys what we’ve been waiting for: A pic of Anne Hathaway in her Catwoman getup from the forthcoming film “The Dark Knight Rises.” Well, sort of. Rather than a revealing, purr-inspiring, full-body shot, what we got is a photo of Hathaway’s Catwoman … riding the Bat-Pod? What […]

Bat Fight!

Pittsburgh is under siege. “The Dark Knight Rises” is filming there the next few weeks, and already we are getting leaked set photos that give us a glimpse into some of the action. No fewer than three Tumblers — still camo colored, not black — have been spotted, as well as a Batpod. There was […]

Okiedokie. This image is of the cast of BATMAN LIVE, which opens in Manchester this July and threatens to invade the shores of the Americas in  Summer 2012. BATMAN LIVE is a $20 million “arena spectacular,” which usually means beer will be sold. And it’ll come in handy. I’m actually kinda’ down with this. I […]

Podcast: Play in new window | Download | EmbedThis week, we ponder the concept of government: Is it getting more corrupt, or has it been corrupt since the first caveman wanted the second caveman to share 40% of his fire? Also, BP spills something else, Batman getting the ol’ reboot and we get Sucker Punched. […]

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is Alberto Falcone in TDKR (maybe)

A few weeks back TOT reported rumors emanating from MoviesOnline.com which quoted an “insider” as saying that Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s role in The Dark Knight Rises would be that of Alberto Falcone, aka the Holiday Killer. This rumor was followed recently by actor Gary Oldman, who plays James Gordon in the Christopher Nolan-helmed film series, saying […]
