THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Easter Eggs. Did You Catch Any Of These?

When we go to the movie we all expect some form of Easter Eggs in the films that we see. Normally in Marvel films there are plenty of them. And now Christopher Nolan has stepped up to the plate with his own in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES . cinemablend went above and beyond the call finding these Easter Eggs in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES . One of the greatest things about Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy is that it’s clear that the director is a real Batman fan. Over the course of his three films, Nolan paid tribute to some of the greatest Caped Crusader stories ever written, including Alan Moore’s “ The Killing Joke ,” Frank Miller’s “ Batman: Year One ,” Joseph Loeb and Tim Sale’s “ The Long Halloween ” and, most recently, Doug Moench and Chuck Dixon’s “ Knightfall .” But for obvious reasons the filmmaker wasn’t able to stick the entirety of the Batman universe into the series, so he did the next best thing: he littered his movies with easter eggs.

THE WATCH Movie Review By: MattInRC

THE WATCH Movie Review By: MattInRC Does the Ben Stiller/Vince Vaughn/Jonah Hill bro-fest THE WATCH inspire laughter or demands for your money back? THE WATCH  is the kind of film which mirrors the times in which we live: it's gross, raunchy, and even a bit degrading at points. Yes, I'm saying society has become dependent on these facets to get anyone's attention. Add any other adjective/adverb that Google will spit out if you wish to complete the experience. The problem has been that Hollywood hasn't consistently come up with truly funny raunch, giving us 3-4 terrible efforts for every Hangover or Ted . The transition to this new lower-brow form of entertainment has not been without its bumps. Luckily  THE WATCH  doesn't fall into the abyss of terrible mishaps; instead, it's a hilarious romp through the world of alien invasions, low sperm counts, male genitalia, and underage drinking. Ok, that doesn't sound as appealing as I write this, but f

Director Talks A Good Day To Die Hard

Empire got the chance to talk to John Moore who is the director of the upcoming fifth Die Hard movie, A Good Day To Die Hard. The plot of the fivequel - if you're comfortable using the term - sees Bruce Willis' John McClane facing off against angry Russian foes after his son, Jack (newcomer Jai Courtney), gets himself into some "serious international trouble" in Moscow. Many fans of the franchise will be concerned about the idea of another sequel, but Moore - who's previously directed Max Payne and the 2006 remake of The Omen - is aware of the anxious question mark hanging over the film. What's more, he's also keen to downplay idea that the fifth Die Hard could be a light-hearted romp - this is a Die Hard movie, pure and simple. In other words, no glib jokes then? No "How can the same shit happen to the same guy five times..." lines? "No, because that’s preposterous! I don’t know whether it’s post-financial crash or whatever, but

Win Tickets To An Advance Screening Of TOTAL RECALL In Sacramento

IN THEATERS AUGUST 3 Win your tickets to see an advance screening of   TOTAL RECALL ! We have passes to the special advance screening on Aug 2, 2012 at 7:00 PM in Sacramento. TOTAL RECALL  is an upcoming 2012 American science fiction action film remake of the 1990 film of the same name, which is based on the 1966 short story " We Can Remember It for You Wholesale " by Philip K. Dick. Unlike the original 1990 film, the plot of this new version lacks a trip to Mars and contains strong political overtones. In addition, the film also blends Western and Eastern influences together, due to the fact that the two nation states, New Shanghai and Euroamerica are battling for political power. It is directed by Len Wiseman, written by Mark Bomback, James Vanderbilt, and Kurt Wimmer, starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, John Cho, and Bill Nighy . In a futuristic political setting of 2084, after being devastated by war, Earth is divided into two

The Hobbit To Be Made Into A Trilogy?

Peter Jackson is looking to return to Middle Earth yet again. Sources close to the production of The Hobbit say the filmmaker has concluded that he wants to turn his upcoming two-film adaptation of the J.R.R. Tolkien epic into a trilogy. That would require additional shooting that sources say could take place next summer for about two months in New Zealand. Jackson teased the idea at Comic-Con on July 14 , telling fans that he wants to shoot more footage. But since then, sources say that studio Warner Bros., Jackson, producer Fran Walsh and writer-producer Philippa Boyens began exploring the logistics of what it would take to make another movie. Those talks are said to have accelerated in recent days, with the studio on board if the right financial arrangements can be achieved. That includes securing new actor deals for the expansive cast as well as shoring up certain rights associated with the property (The Hobbit has a long a tortured rights history.) “If we’re going to do it
