New Batman 3 movie photo features Bane football field explosion killing spree. We recently extracted a new angle,screen cap,photo of the amazing football field, explosion, scene in the upcoming "Dark Knight Rises." As you can see, it kills off all the players except Hines Ward,who runs in to score a touchdown,along with a few more minutes of Life as the scene was quite disastrous. The movie stars: Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard,and Juno Temple. In the flick, the great Batman will be called back into action when his most formidable opponent Bane arrives in Gotham City,and starts messing up shit. He's seen taking out a whole bunch of men on a plane,beating the crap out of Bruce Wayne,and just wreaking all kinds of havoc in general. Batman will have one hell »
As 2011 comes to a close it’s hard to say whether it was a good or bad year for movies. It started out a bit slow but the latter half of the year produced some of my favorite movies in recent years. The following, is the list of what I think are the 10 best films of the year, in order. I will preface this, by saying I did not yet see a few(Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, Martha Marcy May Marlene, etc) which based on most reviews might bump their way into my list once I’ve seen them.
At a point where comic book movies are churned out every few months, 2011 brought us the best one since The Dark Knight three years ago. One of the films I was legitimately worried about, turned out to be what was one of the best summer blockbusters »

A little over two years ago, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel graced the screen together in what became one of the best indie sleeper hits in years, (500) Days of Summer. The two were already rising stars at the time, and the brilliance of the film boosted their careers even further, with Gordon-Levitt going on to star in Inception, this year’s 50/50, and next year’s The Dark Knight Rises, and Deschanel starting up her own Golden Globe-nominated TV series, New Girl.
One of the many great things about (500) Days of Summer was its soundtrack, which included both of the two stars – Gordon-Levitt providing a drunken rendition of Here Comes Your Man, and Deschanel singing Sugar Town solo and Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want with her band, She & Him.
To celebrate the coming New Year, which is just a few hours away, the duo have reunited for »

HollywoodNews.com: This time, it’s the best of the best. Of course ‘best’ is a subjective term, so you might want to consider these my ‘favorites’. Despite what everyone likes to whine about at the end of every year, 2011 was in fact one of the better years in a good long time. Maybe it was the effects of the 2007 WGA strike wearing off, maybe it was just dumb luck, but on the whole, movies, especially mainstream movies, were pretty on-spot more often than they weren’t. But just as important, most of the year-end Oscar bait was actually quite good, so this is a year where I don’t have to half-heartedly apologize for having a list filled with movies nobody saw and mainstream pictures that no one admits to liking. Even if it took 1/3 of the year to really get cooking, 2011 was an uncommonly solid »

In 2011, I saw more new movies than I ever have in the past. Previous years I'd flirted with roughly two per week but, this year, thanks to a full Sundance Film Festival, Fantastic Fest, Butt-Numb-a-Thon and other events like AFI Fest and the Los Angeles Film Festival, that number jumped up to 167. Several of those won't be released until 2012 and others won't get released at all, but it's still a more than sufficient cross section of 2011 releases to adequately speak on the state of film in 2011 and give my top ten movies of the year. (Note: Any film that didn't get an Oscar qualifying 2011 theatrical run did not qualify for this list. That's just my personal rule.) For me, 2011 was the year of "good, but not great." You know the type. A film that does everything right, is entertaining, emotional, but doesn't stick with you once you've left the theater. »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel sing a sweet two-part harmony on Nancy Wilson’s “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve.” Why aren’t they dating? Oh… that’s right Scarlett Johansson.

Those two stars of 2009's bittersweet romantic comedy (500) Days of Summer, Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, have reunited - just in time to ring in 2012. With a ukulele in her hand and a guitar in his, the attractive costars strum and sing composer Frank Loesser's 1947 "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve," which, even Deschanel admits, was most famously rendered by Grammy-winning jazz great Nancy Wilson. In a message accompanying their decidedly low-budget video on her HelloGiggles website, the New Girl Golden Globe nominee notes that she and Gordon-Levitt have known each other for nearly 12 years, after meeting during »

The Dark Knight Rises, one of the most highly-anticipated releases of 2012, is currently in post-production, working towards a July 20 premiere date. A brief description of what appears to be a key scene has been released, which finds Bruce Wayne being kidnapped by Bane and Catwoman.
There are spoilers ahead, so read on at your own risk.
"Gotham City is a war zone. A ruthless madman named Bane has ripped away any sense of security and the citizens, haggard and clutching suitcases with refugee anxiety, sit behind barbed wire waiting to see what will blow up next. A hooded prisoner is dragged in - it's Bruce Wayne, one of Gotham's most famous faces - but the eyes of the crowd go instead to the woman in black standing at the top of the staircase.
'Sorry to spoil things, boys, but Bane needs these guys himself,' says sultry Selina Kyle, »

The "New Girl" star teamed up with her buddy Jgl, whom she costarred with in "(500) Days of Summer," for the latest installment of Video Chat Karaoke on her website for girls, HelloGiggles.
The pair, dressed in their holiday finest (or maybe their everyday finest, who knows what celebs wear in their daily lives), strum the ukulele (her) and guitar (him) while harmonizing together.
We highly suggest watching the video above, though we recommend building in some time to swoon in front of your computer screen before you get anything else done today. »

[flv custom_thumbnail="http://youtu.be/aSq1cez_flQ1325202175896" width="600" height="450"]http://youtu.be/aSq1cez_flQ[/flv] We're having flashbacks to '(500) Days of Summer' with this amazing duet all about New Year's Eve plans. Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are too cute! If this doesn't melt your heart, we don't know what will. Zooey Deschanel teamed up with her former (500) Days of Summer co-star, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, to sing the sweetest duet we've heard. While Zooey, 31, plays the banjo and sings, Joseph, 30, strums his guitar and harmonizes. The whole point of the song? Asking Zooey's Hello Giggle readers what they are doing for New Year's Eve. Although Joseph is reportedly dating Scarlett Johansson, we have to admit, we'd love for Zooey and Joseph to be a real couple -- especially because she recently split from her husband. What do you think? Aren't Joseph and Zooey perfect together? Sound off below! »

Everyone together now: Awwwwww. 500 Days of Summer stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel reunited to sing a song about New Year's Eve, and it's just as adorable as the film that first paired them up as a couple on screen. Now they're back together, dressed to impress and staring lovingly at one another while they belt out the old tune, "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?" The song, originally written by Frank Loesser back in 1947, has been covered by many artists over the years, most notably Ella Fitzgerald, Barry Manilow and, more recently, Katharine McPhee. And now we have the Gordon-Levitt/Deschanel version, which, if anything, just serves as one more reason why these two need to keep making out on the big-screen for our...
