Better batten down the hatches! "The Dark Knight Rises" has now landed an official rating and it's not that shocking, fully expected PG-13. The MPAA warns viewers the movie contains "intense sequences of violence and action, some sensuality and language." In other news, the sky is blue and grass in green.

This summer Katy Perry makes her big screen 3D debut in the concert doc/glorified "ET" profile "Part Of Me." But had things gone another way, she would've starred in "The Help." No, really. She tells Teen Vogue: “There was a time when I was going to be involved in The Help — just a small part, I wasn’t going to be Emma Stone or anything — but I couldn’t because the shooting schedule conflicted with the release of my record.” Something tells us the role of Celia Foote (played by Jessica Chastain) -- the blonde, busty, dimwitted housewife -- would've been the perfect fit.

Here's a fun piece of movie trivia: Stellan Skarsgård worked with the late great Ingmar Bergman on the 1983 TV movie "Hustruskolan" and on stage in "A Dream Play," and he was not a fan of the director's methods. "Bergman was hyper-intelligent but I never liked him as a person. He was not a good man. All directors are control freaks but he was extreme. He did things to people that were not kosher. He didn't destroy people to make them better actors: he destroyed them to utilise his power." [Guardian]

While Bella had some trouble figuring out whether she wanted to bang a vampire or a werewolf, when it comes to undead creatures, master filmmaker Martin Scorsese has a clear winner: "The vampire thing always works for some reason. Always works. I happen to like vampires more than zombies. A vampire, quite honestly, you could have a conversation with. He has a sexuality. I mean the undead thing... Zombies, what are you going to do with them? Just keep chopping them up, shooting at them, shooting at them." [GQ via Vulture]

Finally, did you see Whit Stillman's "Damsels In Distress" this weekend? Do you want to learn to dance The Sambola? Well, you can thanks to the instructional video directed by Stillman below.
