What is Movie News After Dark? Like a giddy schoolgirl come home to tell her diary the news of the day, it’s excited to share with you all that has happened while you were paying attention to other, more important things.
We begin with the news of the night: Marion Cotillard has confirmed that she’s not Talia Al Ghul in The Dark Knight Rises, her long rumored role. She will instead play Miranda Tate, a ecologically minded businesswoman who “is fascinated by Wayne Enterprises. They go through difficulties, and she wants to help provide the world clean energies. She’s a good guy.” Or a good lady. Which is it, Ms. Cotillard?! If that is your real name!
The folks at the AARP want you to know that this summer is a summer of movies for old people, made with a bunch of old people, all of whom get discounts at movie theaters.
BAD’s Devin Faraci explores The Dictator‘s Canned Press Conference and wonders aloud whether or not Sacha Baron Cohen can even do improv anymore. It stands to reason that he’s all schtick these days. That, or the folks at Paramount are crazy about controlling the message around this movie. It could be a bit of both.
In the future, DVDs and Blu-rays will now be saddled with two unskippable anti-piracy warnings. The problem with this strategy, some are want to point out, is that pirates don’t care about warnings. In fact, I’d be willing to bet that most pirates won’t ever see these warnings. Although an ICE spokesperson said that these warnings aren’t designed to deter pirates, but to educate (and annoy) everyone else. Sounds awesome.
