“The Dark Knight Rises” MTV Movie Awards footage features lots of Catwoman and Bane

Tom Hardy as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises

Posted by on

Though it wasn’t up for any awards, “The Dark Knight Rises” came out the true winner of last night’s 2012 MTV Movie Awards.

Director Christopher Nolan and stars Christian Bale, Gary Oldman and Joseph Gordon-Levitt were all on hand to present some heavily hyped new footage at the awards show. It was supposed to be for Movie Awards viewers’ eyes only, but managed to get their hands on the teaser, which is watchable in the video below. Make sure to view it while you can, because there’s a very high likelihood Warner Bros will yank it as soon as possible.

The minute-and-a-half long collection of scenes from “The Dark Knight Rises” heavily features Anne Hathaway‘s Catwoman, and we’ve got to say, we’re impressed. The trailer makes it seems like she and Tom Hardy‘s Bane are going to have a lot of screen time together, but we think that might just be clever cutting. It is interesting to see her and Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s character play opposite one another. And what about her prison scene flip!

We also get to clearly hear that Bane is now legible. His showdown with Bale’s Batman is teased towards the end of the video, and it looks freaking badass. Gotham doesn’t seem like it’s getting out of this one unscathed.

The big question for us is whether Hathaway is talking about Bane or Batman during her conversation with Gordon-Levitt. We want to think Bane, but considering Batman is a fugitive when we last see him in “The Dark Knight,” it could be that she’s talking about our favorite caped crusader. We’d be interested to hear your thoughts on this in the comments below.

Still, this looks like the movie event of the summer. None of the previous marketing for “The Dark Knight Rises” got us as excited as this sizzle reel did. And when that man says, “Oh boy, you are in for a show tonight, son,” we know he’s talking directly to us.

Directed by Christopher Nolan, “The Dark Knight Rises” also stars Michael Caine, Marion Cotillard and Morgan Freeman. It’s coming to theaters and IMAX on July 20.

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.
