Michael Caine routinely threatens retirement, and there's always the possibility that his next film will be his last (especially after the actor turned 80 last week; read our pick of his best performances here), but frankly we don't see it coming any time soon, nor can we imagine him ever saying no to Christopher Nolan. As well as Louis Leterrier's "Now You See Me," Caine has Sandra Nettelbeck's ("Mostly Martha," "Helen") "Mr. Morgan's Last Love" set for release in 2013, and now we have some new posters, images and one very interesting new update about the project

When asked what he thought about "Jaws: The Revenge," Michael Caine (born Maurice Micklewhite in London on March 14, 1933) famously said, “I have never seen it, but by all accounts it is terrible. However, I have seen the house that it built, and it is terrific.” That would seem to give the impression that Michael Caine's career choices have often been driven by paychecks, but that would be a false one. While he's done his fair share of bill-paying, the prolific British actor has, across a fifty-year career, remained one of the best-loved and most enduring stars we have, as well as a wonderful -- and all too often underrated -- actor.

Quentin Tarantino has a stable of familiar actors he works with, but for his latest film, "Django Unchained," the director switched it up, casting two actors he's never worked with before for prominent roles: Jamie Foxx as the lead and Leonardo DiCaprio as the villain (arguably there are lots of new faces including Kerry Washington, Don Johnson and more).

"The Dark Knight Rises" may be on home video for your viewing pleasure, with plenty to dig into among the extras, but that doesn't mean there still isn't more to discover about the film. The promotion for the movie continues and over at the Warner Bros. UK YouTube channel, they've thrown up an interview with Michael Caine (aka Alfred) and there are some choice revelations that will please diehard fans.

Michael Caine Says, Yes, Alfred Really Did See Bruce Wayne & Selina Kyle At The End Of 'The Dark Knight Rises'

Perhaps the open ending of "Inception" is to blame, but for whatever reason, a segment of audiences seemed to be baffled by the conclusion of this summer's "The Dark Knight Rises." At least one blogger surmised that Bruce Wayne was actually dead at the end of the film, and when Alfred looks up in an Italian cafe and sees him along with Selina Kyle, leading a new, quiet and happy life, it's his imagination (or something). But just like he did for "Inception," Caine has put all conjecture to rest about what those final moments really mean.

Next summer is, as usual, going to be competitive; there's the usual mix of superhero sequels ("Iron Man 3," "The Wolverine"), animated sequels ("Monsters University,""Despicable Me 2"), R-rated comedy sequels ("The Hangover Part III") and just general sequels ("Star Trek Into Darkness," "Fast & Furious 6," "Kick-Ass 2"). As such, original fare is going to have a trickier time of it, but Summit is getting started early with their magician heist movie "Now You See Me," debuting a trailer in front of their golden goose "Twilight" this weekend.

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.

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."

Well here we are. 48 hours or so to go until "The Dark Knight Rises." In fact, it rolls out in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and elsewhere tomorrow, so it comes even sooner if you're in that part of the world. The reviews are out, and they're mostly good, although as has been discussed at length already, good isn't apparently enough for the army of infants whose mental well-being depends on the film maintaining a Rotten Tomatoes score above 90%, and who treat Marvel and DC like Sunnis and Shi'ites not realizing that normal people don't care, and are capable of enjoying films from both companies, as well as, shock horror, some that aren't even based on comic books at all.

There are few directors as secretive as Christopher Nolan, so when a little nugget of info that drops seemingly be accident, it tends to get latched on to. And while Nolan hasn't said what he plans post-Batman -- he recently told "Nightline" he didn't have anything immediate (see below) -- it looks like his closest collaborators may have an inkling.
