I’ve come to realize that movie logic is pretty much a more grown up version of cartoon logic. In a movie or cartoon, just about anything could happen. While cartoons typically gloss over inconsistencies, movies sometimes offer a quick line or two to explain these gaping plot holes. Sometimes, they don’t. While it’s pretty much universally understood that what happens in the movies doesn’t actually happen in real life, we can’t help but nitpick.
Enter CinemaSins who continue to point out film flaws that have been bugging many a viewer since a film’s release. This time around, they point out everything wrong with The Dark Knight. Does this lessen my enjoyment of the movie? No, but I’m glad there’s other people in the world who noticed all this inconsistencies.
Can they do the Dark Knight Rises next and just rip apart Bruce Wayne’s prompt return to Gotham City? Because really, that was messed up.
Redditor Sparked94 claims to have found a photo on 4Chan where one anon looks exactly like Christian Bale.
The anon apparently dressed up as Patrick Bateman, Bale’s character in American Psycho. The resemblance is uncanny and we would be obligated to call this a photoshop job if it weren’t for a few things.
The anon’s eyebrows and nose seem slight bigger, and his face a little wider. He’s also missing Bale’s wart-thing on the bridge of his nose near his eye.
What do you guys think? Photoshop job or have we found Christian Bale’s doppelgänger?
Proving that he’t not just a superhero on the big screen, Christian Bale has set out to make a four-year-old boy’s dream come true.
Jayden Barber, who was diagnosed with terminal bone cancer, received a hero’s welcome August 23rd in his hometown of Boardman Township, complete with a Bat Signal, Bat Mobile and an appearance by Christian Bale himself!
But since it has been announced that Jayden’s cancer is in remission, Christian has sent the little boy on a dream vacation to Disneyland.
It’s nice to see celebrities taking their time to help others who look up to them. Christian Bale, you ROCK.
PLEASE. DONT. EVER. CHANGE.
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Christian Bale visits the survivors of the Colorado shooting, and LMFAO is accused of firing a bikini girl for being big boned.
HIT: Christian Bale visits the Colorado theatre shooting memorial and meets the survivors
The Batman star and his wife visited the Aurora, Colorado hospital where seven survivors are being treated for their injuries after the mass shooting during a screening of The Dark Knight Rises. He asked staff beforehand not to notify the media as he wasn’t there to represent the studio, but instead, himself. Bale reportedly spent two and a half hours at the hospital and also paid a visit to the memorial near the movie theater. It’s nice to see that he went beyond his duty as the star of the franchise, by answering the pleas of the Facebook campaign asking him to visit. He became a real hero to all Batman fans. We can now add Bale to the list of “celebrities who are awesome.”
MISS: Justin Bieber, Drake Bell Twitter drama
Former Nickelodeon star Drake Bell tweeted it was ridiculous for artists to have autobiographical films when they haven’t been around for all that long, referring to Katy Perry. Later, he said his account had been hacked and he “… wouldn’t randomly bash @katyperry….bieber however lol.” Then things went CRAY. Fans tweeted the expected “you’re just jealous” comments, but one also sent him a photo of a knife and he received threats of death by stoning. This is why you don’t upset Beliebers people! They mean business.
HIT: Rupert Grint runs with the Olympic Torch
I hate watching sports on TV, but I love the Olympics. I also love all things British, and that includes Harry Potter. I was super stoked to see Rupert Grint run with the torch and it brought a happy, proud tear to my eye. Now, if the Olympic Committee has Doctor Who’s David Tennant run with the torch like he did in one episode, I may just start bawling. Please higher beings, make it happen.

In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Ryan Gosling is the perfect son at his mom’s grad and One Direction fans hide in the garbage for FOUR hours.
HIT: Ryan Gosling goes to mom’s graduation, brings Eva Mendes
Ryan Gosling continues to show the world just how perfect he is, by showing up at Brock University to watch his mom cross the stage to scoop up another degree. Gosling also brought girlfriend Eva Mendes for the occasion. He made an appearance at McMaster University last year, yelling, “love you, mom! You’re the best mom, ever!” as his mom picked up her a bachelor’s degree. He loves his mom, he saves journalists, and he stops fights. Perfection.
MISS: One Direction fans hide in garbage bins for four hours
My favourite thing about reading One Direction news is reading all batshit crazy stunts fans pull just to catch a glimpse of their idols. Take for instance, hiding in garbage bins for four hours (they were caught, Zayn told the The Mirror). Or, kayaking across a lake. Or, ripping clothes off of Niall and Liam, and starting a riot in New York. Teenage girls everywhere: control thy hormones.

After months of speculation of who Joseph-Gordon Levitt will play in the new Batman film, “The Dark Knight Rises”, fans can finally release a sigh of relief as the name of his role has been released.
In March, it was reported that Gordon-Levitt would play Albert Marcone, the son of major Gotham crime boss Alberto Falcone, played by Tom Wilkinson in the first of Christopher Nolan’s films, “Batman Begins.”
According to to a Warner Bros. press release, the actor will instead play John Blake, “a Gotham City beat cop assigned to special duty under the command of Comissioner Gordon.”
On the other hand, Marion Cotillard, who was long assumed to be part of the cast, was also made official on Tuesday. She will play Miranda Tate, who according to Warner Bros. is a “Wayne Enterprises board member eager to help a still-grieving Bruce Wayne resume his father’s philanthropic endeavors for Gotham.”
Gordon-Levitt and Cotillard will join three-time Batman Christian Bale and Anne Hathaway, who will play Selena Kyle/Catwoman and Tom Hardy, who will serve as Bale’s nemesis.
This will be the final Batman film Nolan will direct. After the film, Warner Bros. will reboot the series, in which Nolan will produce.
With this star-studded cast,there will be high expectations for this film!!
But with rebooting of the series? That, I am not too sure about.
How many Batman films do they need??
According to PerezHilton.com, Christopher Nolan has been confirmed to direct the next Batman film, currently titled, The Untitled Batman Project.
After Nolan’s success with Batman Begins, The Dark Night, and more recently, Inception, it would seem silly for him to turn down the completion of the trilogy. Warner Brothers is being very quiet about the project. Perhaps they have another media stunt up their sleeve akin to the mystery surrounding Inception.
Christian Bale will reprise his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman and Michael Caine is still Alfred, but who is going to play the Riddler? People are dying to know who will play the character. It is rumored that Joseph Gordon Levitt will play the Riddler, but again, this could be a riddle in itself. I guess we will have to wait and see!
The film is in pre-production and Nolan is in final stages with the script. However, we probably won’t see this film for another couple of years.
“Terminator Salvation” showed off some serious box-office muscle in its debut, with early estimates suggesting the Christian Bale-starer took in more than $3 million domestically in midnight Wednesday screenings alone.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the movie played in 3,450 theatres Thursday, though data on total Thursday earnings won’t be available until Friday.
The pic is projected to fetch $70 million or more over its first five days in theatres. The big haul is expected thanks in part to the long Memorial Day weekend in the U.S., which traditionally bodes well for the box office.
A caped crusader and a mysterious island lead the pack of nominees for the 2009 Saturn Awards.
The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror announced on Tuesdays its nominations for the annual awards, which recognize the year’s best in genre film making.
“The Dark Knight” received 11 nods to top the movie categories, including best film actor for Christian Bale and best action/adventure/thriller film. The Christopher Nolan-directed pic will compete in the latter category with “Changeling,” “Gran Torino,” “Quantum of Solace,” “Traitor” and “Valkyrie.”
Christian Bale’s verbal attack on Shane Hurlbut, the director of cinematography for “Terminator Salvation,” has been viewed by thousands on the web.
When Hurlbut interrupted a scene the actor was shooting, Bale went on a three and a half minute rant where he said things like, “I want you off the set! You p—k! No, don’t just be sorry! Think for one f—ing second! What the f— are you doing? Are you professional or not?”
Bruce Franklin, associate producer and assistant director for “Terminator Salvation” told E! News, “If you are working in a very intense scene and someone takes you out of your groove … It was the most emotional scene in the movie and for him to get stopped in the middle of it … He is very intensely involved in his character. He didn’t walk around like that all day long. It was just a moment and it passed.”
Franklin said to E! News Bale is a “consummate professional”.
Christian Bale is a free man.
According to E! News, “The Dark Knight” star will not face any charges in regard to his highly-publicized arrest on suspicion of assaulting his mother and sister last month.
“We can today confirm that we have advised the Metropolitan Police Service that the actor Christian Bale should not face any charges,” the Crown Prosecution Service said in a statement. The CPS also said there was “insufficient evident to afford a realistic prospect of conviction” on the charges and that “the police have been advised that no further action should be taken against Mr. Bale.”
Bale has denied the allegations set against him. After the star was arrested and questioned, he was released by police on July 22.
Christian Bale had huge success at the box office this weekend – but his personal life may be falling apart.
The “Dark Knight” star is being sued for assault by his mother and sister, reports the UK Sun. Bale is said to have lashed out at his family members on Sunday at Park Lane’s Dorchester Hotel in London.
Bale faces questioning, but police are giving him the benefit of the doubt; they even held off their investigation to allow Bale to attend the huge premier of the new Batman flick.
A source told The Sun, “It was a very difficult situation but it would have been wrong to have wrecked the premiere over a complaint which we don’t yet know is founded in truth. But Mr Bale will be contacted at the earliest opportunity and be asked to provide an account of anything that happened.”
A Met Police spokesperson confirmed they had receive the allegations from Bale’s family.
After rumours that Christian Bale would play either John Connor or the Terminator in the fourth film of the franchise, CHUD.com is reporting that Bale will play a completely new character.
Due for release in June of 2009, no real casting has been set in stone. Warner Bros. will release the film, with McG directing. The running title is “Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins.”
According to IMDb, this will be the basic plotline: “After the drastic effects of Terminator 3, the story continues as John Connor and soon to be wife Kate Brewster realize they must create a resistance organization with Earth’s remaining survivors against the army of robots slowly being built up by Skynet. As they are building this resistance, one survivor happens to be a traitor in disguise, and has a secret that nobody would ever come to suspect.”
John Connor was played by Nick Stahl in the previous “Terminator” instalment.
Actor Christian Bale (“Batman Begins”) is set to star in a remake of “3:10 to Yuma,” the classic Western film from 1957.
Russell Crowe has already signed on to co-star in the James Mangold-directed project, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The plot of the movie follows that of the original: rancher Dan Evans (Bale) captures a dangerous outlaw named Ben Wade (Crowe) and has to clandestinely transport him by train to Yuma for a court appearance.
Originally, the role of Evans was played by Van Heflin while Glenn Ford took on the part of the criminal.
The movie is slated to film this fall.
As Christian Bale, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine all sign on to a Batman Begins sequel, Katie Holmes’s name is noticeably missing.
Bale as Batman was the first to sign on, followed by Caine and Freeman. However, Holmes won’t reprise her role as district attorney Rachel Dawes – reportedly because Warner Bros. is angry that her engagement to Tom Cruise is getting more media attention than their summer blockbuster is.
A source told pagesix.com that “she won’t be in the sequel … the next romantic interest will be a much stronger actress. Warner is happy that people are now focusing on who’ll be playing the Joker rather than Katie and Tom.”
Meanwhile, Steven Spielberg, director of War of the Worlds, told Newsweek he thinks the media has blown the relationship out of proportion.
“Tom lost his cool because he was deliriously happy, and now he was being punished for his public display of happiness. What Tom did on Oprah was exactly what Tom did with me when he first told me about Katie Holmes. But the press didn’t like the way Tom bared his soul,” he says.
But now Spielberg seems to have changed his tune. The latest reports say he dropped out of today’s “War of the Worlds” junket at the Essex House.
Some reporters speculate Spielberg is tired of the ever looming shadow of TomKat over each War of the Worlds promotional event.
A representative for DreamWorks responded by saying, “he was never absolutely fixed to do the press conference. It still could happen.”
