If there's one thing we unapologetically love about the ambitious and occasionally irksome "The Dark Knight Rises," it's Tom Hardy and his deliciously evil voice as Bane, the muscular zealot behind much of the movie's jumbo-sized mayhem. While some audience members still claim that his voice was indecipherable, this was a much bigger problem a few months ago, when the IMAX-shot aerial prologue was shown attached to select prints of Brad Bird's "Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol." Now someone has done a compare-and-contrast, while details of a brief deleted scene have also emerged.

Occasionally it takes a bit of time for a film to cross the pond, even if its European box office hit like Guillaume Canet's "Little White Lies." But the film finally arrives on U.S. shores later this summer, and it will certainly be helped by the raised profile of its very strong ensemble cast.

Over an unexpected and sad weekend, "The Dark Knight Rises," a film anticipated by millions for several years at this point, finally came to theaters. And judging by the film's opening weekend, thought to be around $160 million and the biggest ever for a 2D film, most of you caught it this weekend, unbowed by the sad events of early Friday morning in Colorado.

One of the biggest question marks and most exciting prospects of this coming fall is the potential return of New York writer-director James Gray who, after 2008's underrated drama "Two Lovers," reunites with Joaquin Phoenix and teams with Marion Cotillard and Jeremy Renner for an untitled 1920s set drama formerly known as "Low Life."

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.
