At this point in time, Christopher Nolan must have actors lining up around the block to work with him. For someone who works, these days, on the scale he's accustomed to, for all the spectacle he puts on screen, he also doesn't forget to draw out stunning performances from his actors, from Guy Pearce's indelible turn in "Memento" to Heath Ledger's Oscar-winning Joker in "The Dark Knight."

If you're one of the many who are strongly anticipating "The Dark Knight Rises," you've likely already bought your IMAX ticket, booked the day off work/are planning to call in sick, told your significant other your cellphone will be turned off and you'll be unavailable, circled the date on your calendar, and have been quietly ticking off the days until it hits theaters.

It's only been 24 hours since our last bit of info on "The Dark Knight Rises" so don't worry, the movie hasn't been canceled or push back. Phew. Kidding aside, the clock is winding down on the film with just over a month to go before we see Christopher Nolan's epic conclusion to the series -- and at 2 hours and 45 minutes long, he's not kidding.

One of the most anticipated features at Cannes this year is Jacques Audiard's return to the Croisette with "Rust & Bone," an adaptation of Craig Davidson's short story starring Marion Cotillard and Matthias Schoenaerts. The last time the helmer was here for "A Prophet," he earned immense critical acclaim for himself and his film's star, Tahar Rahim, leading to the film's eventual Oscar-nomination in the Foreign Film category. From the sounds of our review this morning, "Rust & Bone" is another huge success for both the director and his lead actress.

What is it we do to survive? Who is it we love? Who is it we fight? What are the forces seen and unseen that push our lives in directions we could have never expected? These are the questions that Jacques Audiard tackles in his latest "Rust And Bone," a beautiful, moving story of two fractured lives that somehow, together, combine into a single (if unconventional) whole.

Spoilers ahead! Seriously, don't whine about anything if you read past this point. Anyway, if anything has matched the secrecy around "The Dark Knight Rises," it has been the rumors, with everyone on the Internet tossing around their ideas for just what Christopher Nolan will be bringing to the epic conclusion of his Batman movies. One of the most enduring so far is that Marion Cotillard's Miranda Tate, reported to be a Wayne Enterprises board member eager to help a still-grieving Bruce Wayne resume his father’s philanthropic endeavors for Gotham. Many assumed that rather vague character description was a bit of misdirection, and that she could possibly be playing a villainess. Once Liam Neeson's cameo as Ra's al Ghul was rumored and later confirmed, many assumed Tate was going to be playing Talia al Ghul, looking to seek revenge (possibly with League Of Assassins). Well, according to Cotillard, the fanboys are wrong.

While Jean-Baptiste Mondino might not be a household name, you've likely seen his work. A director and photographer, he's helmed music videos for a variety of folks like Madonna, David Bowie, Prince, Bjork and Tom Waits and recently got behind the camera for the Dolce & Gabbana ad featuring Scarlett Johansson. Mondino also worked extensively on campaign for "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" for David Fincher, shooting the breast baring teaser poster as well as the memorable spread for Le Monde featuring Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig dressed as their characters, but in new images not from the film.
