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.

Given that it was masterminded by filmmaker Danny Boyle, one shouldn't have been surprised by the presence of a number of movie clips and icons throughout last night's opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics. Clips from "A Matter Of Life And Death" and Boyle's own "Trainspotting," appearances from Mary Poppins and Voldemort were all in the mix (we'll have a full review of the event up soon). But what would a British opening ceremony be without an appearance from the country's most iconic character: James Bond himself.

It seems folks are still divided on Joe Wright's undeniably audacious take on Leo Tolstoy's "Anna Karenina." After a trailer and a generous six minute clip, some haven't cottoned to Wright's approach, while this writer, at least, has fallen for what has been on display so far, something that at least looks like a fresh approach to literary drama tropes. And with the film just over a month away from its U.K. release and festival bow on this side of the ocean, another peek at the movie has arrived.

Granted, we don't keep up with Rosie Perez, but that doesn't mean she hasn't been keeping busy. While the last time this writer saw her was in "Pineapple Express," just over a year ago, a fellow Playlist-er caught her awesomely praising (and then leaving) a screening of "The Fighter." You go Rosie Perez....anyway, she's landed a gig in what will be her first real substantial drama in quite some time (sorry, the feel goodery of the upcoming "Won't Back Down" doesn't count).

Way back in 2008, J.J. Abrams teamed up with Universal to produce an earthquake movie -- not a remake of the 1974 Charlton Heston flick -- and tasked the original "The Omen" writer David Seltzer to pen the script. And then....that was pretty much the last we heard of it. But now a new writer is on board and it's not exactly the most obvious name you would think of for a blockbuster.

'The Master' Moves Up To September 14th & 'Killing Them Softly' Shuffles Back To October 19th

Well, this is interesting. It was just this morning that the The Playlist honchos were talking "The Master" over cups of coffee, and wondering what Harvey Weinstein's gameplan would be. With the film not appearing in the Venice or TIFF lineups, and with rumors of a Fantastic Fest showing, would it be possible that Paul Thomas Anderson's highly anticipated film would be skipping the festival circuit altogether? While Harv knows how to work festivals to his awards season advantage, PTA has never been that huge on the whole process, pretty much forgoing it entirely for "There Will Be Blood" (save a premiere at the aforementioned geek haunt in Austin). But now there's another twist...

We're always up for a good little thriller or a piece of noir, and while buzz on "I, Anna" has pretty much been muted at this point despite premiering at the Berlin Film Festival earlier this month, the cast and material is compelling enough that we're eager to give this one a shot.

With the wondrous “Hugo” behind him now, director Martin Scorsese is looking to head back to chronicling the sort of seedier pastimes that helped make his name, with the upcoming “The Wolf Of Wall Street” now in the works. Based on a true story, the film follows a New York stockbroker who goes on a downward spiral of sex and drugs, and refuses to take part in a large securities fraud case. Scorsese has already lined up top talent like frequent collaborator Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Jean Dujardin (“The Artist”), Jon Bernthal (“The Walking Dead”) and Kyle Chandler (“Friday Night Lights”), and the film continues to bring out names the way only a new Scorsese project can.

To say that this movie isn't exactly in our wheelhouse would be an understatement. The only time we've ever talked about "Silent Hill: Revelation 3D" has been in a feature about unnecessary sequels, and another about whether or not video games can make good movies. But it doesn't matter what we think, because there is a core of fans who enjoyed the first movie for whatever merits it supposedly had, and pushed it to over $100 million worldwide. A brand is a brand, and thus we have a sequel on the way.

The acting comeback trail for former California Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger has been a bumpy one marred by a scandal (which seems to have been forgotten), an attempt at a completely self-indulgent cartoon, but mostly just a dearth of solid projects worthy of bringing the lumbering talent back to the screen. One project has been shaping up quite nicely, with writer-director David Ayer (“Training Day,” “End of Watch”) behind the camera of police thriller (shocker) “Breacher.” Previously known as “Ten,” the film will follow 10 DEA agents who are marked for death following a heist during an drug enforcement operation. The production recently added Sam Worthington in an undisclosed role, and now has two more recognizable faces to add to the mix.
