Thompson on Hollywood

Here's the rundown. Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises opens in theaters on July 20, 2012. The cast so far, pictured, is listed below, including newly announced Josh Pence, Daniel Sunjata, Burn Gorman, Diego Klattenhoff, and Katie Holmes (says IMDb). ThePlaylist reminds us that this will be an old-fashioned 35 mm 2-D film shot at 24 frames per second. With faces like these, who can complain? Let the plot speculation continue.

Christian Bale (Bruce Wayne), Anne Hathaway (Selina Kyle/Catwoman), Joseph Gordon Levitt (Alberto Falcone John Blake), Tom Hardy (Bane), Juno Temple, Gary Oldman (Jim Gordon), Michael Caine (Alfred), Marion Cotillard (rumored: Talia al Ghul Miranda Tate), Morgan Freeman (Lucius Fox), Daniel Sunjata (special forces agent), Burn Gorman (unknown), Diego Klattenhoff (rookie cop) and Josh Pence (young Ra's Al Ghul).
