“The Dark Knight Rises” New York shoot features Batman brawling with Bane mid-riot

It seems like Bane hasn’t broken the Bat yet. Tom Hardy and Christian Bale were caught brawling again on the set of “The Dark Knight Rises” over the weekend, and judging by the pictures and videos released, it looks like Batman was giving as good as he was getting. But they weren’t the only people roughing it on the streets of NYC.


At long last, Christopher Nolan filmed the big battle sequence on Wall Street over the weekend. Originally the plan was to bring in extras from Occupy Wall Street, but that idea was later scrapped. Based on these images from the set, though, it looks like bringing protesters in to film the big brawl sequence would have been a good way to get out some of their pent up aggressions. Cameras by the New York Stock Exchange also caught Joseph Gordon-Levitt doing crowd control as one of Gotham City’s finest.


This isn’t the first big showdown between the cops and the masses that has been filmed for “The Dark Knight Rises.” Clearly tensions have reached a peak in the final installment of Nolan’s Batman trilogy. It’s unclear what part of the movie these scenes take place in, but at least fans can look forward to more than one epic showdown between Batman and Bane. But where are Anne Hathaway and Marion Cotillard in all of this? Maybe they don’t want to risk the pain Bane is sure to bring in this battle sequence.


“The Dark Knight Rises” hits theaters July 20, 2012.

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
