Here's your first official look at Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, in the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises, from director Christopher Nolan.

On the heels of my post yesterday, announcing that it would make its world premiere as the closing night film at the 59th San Sebastian Film Festival in Spain next month, as well as a reminder that of the fact that Harvey Weinstein and his Weinstein Company have acquired both stateside distribution rights to the original film AND, more noteworthy, the English-language remake rights to the film... we now have our first look at the film via a teaser trailer.

After 19 years and 391 episodes playing Lt. Van Buren on Law & Order (and no doubt collecting residuals until the end of days), S. Epatha Merkerson can pretty much take it easy and do whatever she feels like when she wants to.

Since she's practically a walking cartoon herself it rather makes sense that she would be in one. So with that, it was announced that rapper (that's what she is isn't she or so I've heard) Nicki Minaj and comedian JB Smoove (Curb Your Enthusiasm) will lend their voices to the next Ice Age animated film for Fox Animation and Blue Sky Studios

Speaking of Clifton Powell, whom I just wrote a post about starring in Psalm 23rd: Redemption, he also stars in The House of Malik, set for release December 1, 2011. The film, a coming of age tale about a New Jersey trumpet prodigy, is written and directed by Jesse James Jackson Jr. and produced by Jersey Style Films Inc. Along with Powell, the film also stars Sean Taylor, Xiaofei Wang, Thomas C. Bartley, Jerry Ross and Anthony Warren.

So maybe a fantastical tale about CG apes gone wild isn't really your thing, and you'd prefer something with more of a neo-realist touch; then I've definitely got what you need :)
