You hear that sound in the distance? That sinister rumbling that quickens the pulse and raises goosebumps? It's the Warner Bros. marketing department beginning to leg out the final stretch for the campaign for "The Dark Knight Rises," and after two TV spots last week, a third has now arrived, giving a glimpse of even more footage from the film. And that's not all -- the carefully planned/embargoed set visits and interviews from various outlets also landed online over the weekend with more bits and bobs spilling out.

Sick of "The Dark Knight Rises" and its relatively secret campaign? At least compared to say, Fox's "Prometheus," which seemingly has revealed every secret it has? (Probably not, but it sure feels that way). Well, you shouldn't be. Trust In Nolan (someone should make a T-shirt of that and give me some props).

Nobody Tells Tom Hardy Anything: 'Mad Max 4' Starts Filming In A Week, Says Charlize Theron

Poor Tom Hardy. First the actor is forced to grow an unwieldy beard as prep for his starring role in the upcoming “Mad Max” reboot, only to have the start date pushed back countless times. Then, while in Cannes this week helping to promote John Hillcoat's “Lawless,” Hardy confessed he still had no clue when shooting began. However, it seems Hardy was either off trimming his beard when news struck, or co-star Charlize Theron is just more aware of these things, because the actress today revealed the film is set to shoot very soon, as in next week.

Ah, character posters. Once an innovative spin on movie marketing, now they're dragged out needlessly for any film on release. Want Jonny Lee Miller in "Dark Shadows" hanging on your wall? Or Alexander Skarsgard in "Battleship?" You got it. We've never seen any evidence of a Tom Wilkinson one-sheet for "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," but we're sure one's out there somewhere.

Status report check-in time. If you've paid attention to interviews with Charlize Theron, you'll know she almost didn't star in Jason Reitman's "Young Adult" because she was supposed to play the female lead in George Miller's "Mad Max: Fury Road," the long-awaited continuation of the Mad Max saga, this time with Tom Hardy in the lead instead of Mel Gibson. She was also set to be the star of "Prometheus," but had to bail on that role that Noomi Rapace eventually took because of "Fury Road" once more (she instead, eventually took a smaller role in the film).

An arty period piece from the director of difficult material like "The Proposition" and "The Road"? Such could be the case when John Hillcoat's bloody prohibition drama "Lawless" hits theaters at the end of the summer, but you wouldn't know it by the marketing of the film. If The Weinstein Company has their way, you're going to hear about this film over and over again until it hits August 29th. They're beating the drum loudly thus far (as is their wont) and nothing seems to be off the table so far. Character posters have already arrived and maybe we'll see some corportate tie-ins later in the year? Makers Mark? Some kinda yummy whiskey?

Cannes Review: The Bondurant Boys Deal Moonshine & Violence In John Hillcoat's Lively 'Lawless'

"It's not violence that sets men apart, it's the distance they're willing to go," Forrest Bonduarant (Tom Hardy) tells his youngest brother Jack (Shia LaBeouf) in "Lawless." And with a set of brass knuckles in his pocket and a pistol in his waistband, he knows what he's talking about. That theme is one that has carried John Hillcoat through his last two pictures "The Proposition" and "The Road," and once again he explores men and their relationship with violence in "Lawless," a picture that while highly entertaining, doesn't quite match the heights of his previous efforts.

So here's a little anecdote for you. This writer has seen the latest "The Dark Knight Rises" trailer in the theaters a few times now, and unlike the usual chattering that accompanies most movie spots, the audience has been mostly reverentially silent. Has anyone else experienced this? It's eerie and kind of cool. Either way, it's pretty clear that "The Dark Knight Rises" will be aiming to smash the $1 billion worldwide box office of its predecessor "The Dark Knight," but can Christopher Nolan's film achieve that feat?

While "The Avengers" officially kicked off the summer movie season to the tune of $200 million dollars this weekend, Christmas for arthouse fans is just around the corner with the Cannes Film Festival. Granted, it's one of the more mainstream movies hitting the fest, but anticipation is running high for John Hillcoat's "Lawless." And one movie that wasn't ready in time, but that is also being eyed is Joe Wright's "Anna Karenina" and for both, some new pics have arrived to stoke the flames of ancipiation.
