I’ve added new event photos of Christian Bale attends ‘The Flowers of War’ Bejing premiere at the assembly hall of CPPCC on December 11, 2011 in Beijing, China.
Thousands of film fans responded to the survey, which was posted on Fandango.com during the first weeks of December. According to male moviegoers, the most anticipated blockbuster of 2012 will be Warner Bros’ The Hobbit, while for females, it’s Summit’s Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2. When it comes to remakes, men are most anticipating Sony’s Total Recall while women are most looking forward to Warner Bros’ The Great Gatsby. Several studios are missing from these lists, so it looks like some marketing departments have to play catch-up in the coming months:
THE MOST ANTICIPATED BLOCKBUSTER IN 2012:
According to Men:
1. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (Warner Bros)
2. The Avengers (Marvel/Disney)
3. The Dark Knight Rises (Warner Bros)
4. The Bourne Legacy (Universal)
5. Men in Black III (Sony)
With The Dark Knight Rises IMAX Prologue hitting theaters next week in front of Mission Impossible 4, Warner Bros. decided to world premiere the footage tonight at the IMAX theater at Universal Citywalk in Hollywood. As you might imagine, the theater was filled with journalists from around the world, as well as some of the Dark Knight filmmakers like director Christopher Nolan, producer Charles Roven, Jonathan Nolan (Chris’ brother and a screenwriter on the film) and producer Emma Thomas.
As the lights went down and the film started to play, you could feel the energy in the room rise as we were treated to the first look at the opening six minutes of The Dark Knight Rises and a montage of short clips from the rest of the film. So you’re probably wondering what I thought….it was fucking awesome. Hit the jump for more including a video blog recap.
Before going any further, it’s important to note that WB asked all the reporters to refrain from writing a blow by blow account of the footage. They really want everyone to walk into the theater next week knowing as little as possible. Like we did tonight.
All I can say is…I’m so happy I went in cold, and if you’re smart you will avoid any article that reveals the specifics of the footage. That way you’re enjoying the footage exactly the way Christopher Nolan wants you to. • Read full story »

I’ve added new magazine scans of Christian Bale and Director Zhang Yi Mou featured on the cover of “The Hollywood Reporter” to the gallery. Thanks to baleheads blog for the scans!
“In terms of box office, I don’t feel any pressure,” Bale told 24 Frames. “I never saw Batman and Bruce Wayne as a big tent pole. It was just another character I love playing. But I do feel a creative pressure. It would be wrong if I didn’t feel that.”
When Oldman was asked how he was handling potential pressure surrounding the final Batman chapter, he says:
“It’s more pressure on Chris [Nolan] than on me. If they feel disappointed with Gordon, that’s one thing. If they feel disappointed with the movie, that’s another.”
“Chris is too classy to make a movie just for the sake of doing a third one,” he said, adding, “It’s a terrific story, and it’s going to be epic. fans will have a chance to decide for themselves when new footage is shown at some Imax screenings of “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol”
