New “The Dark Knight Rises” photos and plot synopsis emerge


Posted by on

The cast and crew of “The Dark Knight Rises” have been notoriously secretive about revealing too many details surrounding the upcoming Batman flick, but the new Entertainment Weekly cover story about it offers us some new looks at the film.

EW have released six new images from the film that show some scenes we haven’t seen before. There’s Bane walking through what looks to be a government control room, Bruce Wayne and Lucius Fox sharing a conversation over a newspaper, and Catwoman cracking into a safe. But what’s more exciting than the new photos is the way the cast has opened up about the movie.

“We wanted to show a character who is aging, who is damaged, who may not be in his prime,” Christian Bale told EW. “He has never encountered anyone with such blunt force as Bane, and this is not the best time for him to encounter him.”

The story also implies that there is no guarantee Batman will come out of “The Dark Knight Rises” alive. Anne Hathaway seemed to cement that concept by saying, “[Christopher Nolan] has created an epic disaster film.”

In addition, EW has got their hands on a new plot synopsis that adds some color to the previously released information, including the fact that Marion Cotillard’s Miranda Tate might be another love interest for Bruce Wayne. Here it is in its entirety:

“‘Rises’ is set eight years after the events of the ‘Dark Knight.’ Gotham City is at peace and prospering, but Bruce Wayne is still recovering physically and emotionally from the tragic battles with the Joker and Harvey Dent. Batman, who took the fall for Harvey’s crimes so Gotham could remain inspired by the lawman’s former idealism, continues to be reviled and MIA as the story begins. While old allies Alfred and Lucius Fox and potential love interest Miranda Tate try to revive Bruce’s spirits, two new threats to Gotham force Batman to end his exile.”

“The Dark Knight Rises” hits theaters July 20.

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.)

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.
