THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
Following on the heels of yesterday’s UK theater list, Spinoff Online has the names of the US theaters equipped to play the six-minute prologue in front of “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” from December 16th. Click through for the complete list, but I will say that folks in Palm Springs, CA should consider themselves lucky. Meanwhile, a Superhero Hype Messageboard user spotted this rather curious picture of Tom Hardy in his Bane attire:
Say, that pose looks familiar …
Release date: July 20th, 2012

While talking with Commingsoon.net, Kenneth Branagh was asked if he would be involved in the “Thor” sequel as a producer. “I think that really it’s over to the guys [at Marvel] with that,” he answered. “They’ve made a great choice in [director] Patty Jenkins. I’m very excited about that choice. I’ll be speaking to the guys when I get back. They’re shooting in Shepperton near me, so no doubt, we’ll be hooking up and I’ll be as little or as much of it as they’d like.”
Release date: TBA
WE MORTALS ARE
According to Heat Vision,Tom Cruise is in talks to star in the Hollywood adaptation of Hiroshi Sakurazaka and Yoshitoshi Abe’s graphic novel “All You Need is Kill.” Cruise will play a “soldier defending Earth from attacking aliens. Killed in battle, he is then stuck in a time loop that causes him to relive that day over and over while gaining strength and skill each time as he tries to change his fate.” So it’s MMO Grind: The Movie?

AKA JESSICA JONES
Melissa Rosenberg tells Popcorn Biz that she hopes the series will get picked up by ABC. “It’s dark material. It’s not ‘Captain America.’ I mean, it is some pretty gritty, adult-themed stuff. So we’ll have to see how that fits [on network television],” she explains. On the topic of other Marvel character appearing in the series, should it get picked up, she says, “Jessica and Luke Cage – as long as I have those two guys, I don’t care who else!”
THE WALKING DEAD
The lads at Comic Book Movie spotted this now deleted tumblr post from would-be actor Dupree R. Stansell:
The other day I got caste[sic] to be an[sic] feature extra in the television show “The Walking Dead”. I didn’t know what my role is but I was excited when I found out that I was playing a Michonne Jaw-less Pet Walker. Now those of you who read the magazine know’s[sic] what that is. For those of you who don’t, just know it’s a dope charter to the new season three. I will be in episode 13, the season final[sic] of season 2. I’m not going to give away too much details, but know it was three hours of make up ($2,000 dollers[sic] worth) me shirtless and cold, looking super gory but cool. And a whole lot of taping, running and screaming. Ending in a lobster dinner :).
Stansell hopes to return to the series next year. I hope his reveal of Michonne doesn’t hurt his chances.Of course, this could still be a bunch of hooey. Time will tell, it always does.

Get me a large pot of coffee and cue up some chase music — It’s the weekend and boy do I have a ton of stuff to do! Hopefully the power will return so I can get half of it done. Meanwhile, if any of you in the great, wide Internet discover something awesome, disheartening, or just plain weird, let us know! Take credit, come up with a clever nickname, or go anonymous. The choice is yours. Fresh rumors and movie news every weekday morning. I am Erik Amaya, bracing for the future threat the days ahead.
