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.

The sand in the hour glass continues to grow smaller and smaller as by this time next Friday, fans will have already stumbled out, bleary eyed from the Batman trilogy marathon at theaters around the country. But as is the case with "The Dark Knight Rises," until then, we only know as much as Warner Bros. and the secretive Christopher Nolan wants to tell us about what's in store for Bruce Wayne in his final outing. So until next week, these images will have to suffice.

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.

Given that the two films in the franchise are the number one and number two R-rated comedies of all time, it's no surprise that studios are desperately attempting to recapture the formula of "The Hangover." Whether it's in set-up, like Sundance comedy "Bachelorette", or in spirit, like last summer's "Horrible Bosses", there are all kinds of spiritual successors to Todd Phillips' smash hit in the can or in the works, but they've all been lacking in one obvious thing: old people! Old people doing young people things are always funny! How else do you explain Betty White?

While Warner Bros. has yet to push out the final leg of the "The Dark Knight Rises" marketing campaign, this will certainly suffice in the meantime. We don't know who you are anonymous internet comedians, but this is fucking gold.

While making the rounds for his Sundance drama "LUV," rapper/actor/chick magnet Common told Movieline (via Shadow & Act) that he's joined the cast of Louis Leterrier's awesome-sounding magician heist movie "Now You See Me." "I'm about to film this movie called 'Now You See Me,' which stars Jesse Eisenberg and Isla Fisher and Michael Caine and Mark Ruffalo - I'd say it's an action movie, about these magicians," Common told Movieline. "It's dope." Dope indeed!

Danny DeVito's film career has hit somewhat of a pause for the last couple of years (presumably as a result of his commitment to FX comedy series "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia"), but it looks as though he'll soon be returning in a big way with a directorial effort planned for the adaptation of author Avi's young-adult novel "The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle."
