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.

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.

But we digress. In the dying moments of the marketing campaign for "The Dark Knight Rises," a selection of new images has been released by Warner Bros, focusing principally on some of the supporting cast, including alleged show-stealer Anne Hathaway as Selena Kyle, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Gotham cop John Blake, the returning Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine as Lucius Fox and Alfred, and Matthew Modine as GCPD Deputy Commissioner Foley. And there's a few shots of Christopher Nolan himself, at least until the Nolanites declare that it's forbidden to print pictures of their idol.

The film is, according to our review, very good indeed, and it hits theaters on Friday, July 20th.
