Over at SuperHeroHype, they’ve unearthed a nifty little bit of viral fun for Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight Rises at the recently-launched DewGothamCity site (and we thought this promotional tie-in was only going to give us sad Batman soda displays) – a press release announcing the signing of the so-called Dent Act (in honor of the memory of the dearly departed Harvey Dent).

It’s Movie News After Dark! And, man, is it tired. I won’t bury the lede here, folks, some people love Peter Berg‘s Battleship. Our Cole Abaius is not one of them. But guess who is! Huffington Post’s Mike Ryan! The scribbler has penned a love letter to the film, and while I can’t quite agree with the sentiment, he brings up some interesting and articulate points.
