Plus Watch The Film In Real Time, And Nolan's Structure Drawing When you think about it, there's really no way that "Inception" should have worked. A film of ludicrous ambition, a $200 million dollar passion project, attempting to combine the arthouse and the blockbuster at one fell swoop, and, unlike virtually every other tentpole, not based on a comic book, video game or airport novel. Not to mention that the history of directors being given carte blanche following a megahit doesn't always work out for the best -- right up until the film started screening, we were still concerned that it could turn out to be Nolan's "Heaven's Gate."

"It’s A Little Bit Like Guilty By Association," The Composer Says Of False ReportLast week when it was reported that Hans Zimmer was tapped to score Zack Snyder's "Superman: Man of Steel," we knew something was off (hence the fact we didn't report it; it just smelled hinkey).

Latest Rumors Link Tom Hardy To Role Of Dr. Hugo Strange After a couple of years of speculation as to whether he would make the film, and after one passion-project turned box-office-blockbuster, Christopher Nolan finally confirmed that he would be directing the third, and final, film in the Batman series a few months back. We know that it's going to be called "The Dark Knight Rises," we know that "Bronson" star Tom Hardy will reteam with Nolan, who directed him in "Inception," by joining the regular cast, and we know... well, not much else really.

Right now, it seems we know more about what won't be happening in Christopher Nolan's upcoming "The Dark Knight Rises" than what actually will be happening. The film won't be in 3D, won't feature the Riddler, will not feature a CGI Heath Ledger as the Joker, and now we can tell you you one more thing that won't be happening.

An alternate poster for "Inception" has been revealed and well, it's pretty clear to see why it was an alternate. The stars remain figures in the distance as the cityscape curls up around them and really, it's not as striking as the official one sheets and character posters that got the thumbs up. But an interesting look at the creative process regardless.

Old Rumor Surfaces Once AgainPerhaps running just as long as the rumor that the Riddler would be the villain in "The Dark Knight Rises" (which was one of the first things the secretive Christopher Nolan denied about the project) the second persistent tidbit about the forthcoming film was that Christopher Nolan and his regular DP Wally Pfister were strongly considering shooting it completely in IMAX. Of course, Nolan utilized the format for certain segments for "The Dark Knight," but due to the camera's bulky nature and noisy operation, at the time it was largely limited to exteriors or brief action sequences (notably, the opening bank heist).

Rachel Weisz, Naomi Watts, Blake Lively, Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway & Keira Knightley In The Mix; Tom Hardy Reportedly Playing A VillainHere we go again. We probably could have broken this story ourselves as every one of these names have cropped up in recent casting rounds, but the most intriguing part of this story are not the names attached, but the revelation that Christopher Nolan is seeking two female leads for "The Dark Knight Rises": one, a love interest for Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale), the other, for a villain. This really only leaves a few possibilities for the potential foe of Batman (unless Nolan is going really obscure): Catwoman, Poison Ivy or as some of our readers have suggested, Talia al Ghul.
