The Dark Knight Rises: New Interviews and Photos


Hitting newsstands today is Entertainment Weekly’s annual Summer Movie Preview.  As expected, the cover of this year’s issue features none other than Batman and Catwoman — courtesy of Christopher Nolan’s third (and final) film in his Batman trilogy, “The Dark Knight Rises”.

Batman-News.com posted excerpts from Entertainment Weekly’s article, while EW.com posted seven brand new stills from the film.


Christopher Nolan on Bane and Selina Kyle/Catwoman

[Bane] represents formidable physical strength, combined with absolute evil of intention. [Selina Kyle] has a very strong way of protecting herself and those she cares about, which implies an underlying darkness.

Tom Hardy on Bane and his voice

It’s a risk, because we could be laughed at — or it could be very fresh and exciting,” says Hardy, adding that the voice he developed was influenced by many factors, including a desire to honor the comic book character’s brains and Caribbean heritage. “The audience mustn’t be too concerned about the mumbly voice,” says Hardy. “As the film progresses, I think you’ll be able to tune to its setting.


Anne Hathaway on training for Catwoman

I had to physically transform,” says Hathaway, calling from London, where she’s currently shooting Les Misérables with Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe. “Chris sat me down at the beginning and said, ‘Joseph Gordon-Levitt did all of his own fighting in Inception. That one zero-gravity fight? He trained for two months.’ I basically left his office and went to the gym and just came out about five minutes ago.

The Dark Knight Rises opens on July 20th of this year.
