It has been suggested that we make a thread used strictly for updates. So basically, whenever there is a bit of new news out - photo, tv spot, poster, viral marketing, interview - you can post that in here. There will be no discussion in this thread - that will all happen in the respective threads.

This way people won't have to search through 20 pages of the trailer or poster threads to find the latest original update.

So here are the rules:

1. Only new updates may be posted.
2. No duplicate updates.
3. No discussion.
4. Link to the original source of the update.
5. If you want, link to the respective discussion thread at the end of the post.

This could be really helpful and cool if we make it work guys, so please participate and participate properly. Think about it, whenever there is new news, you will know because there is a new post in this thread!

Thanks. Please send any question or suggestions via PM or post them in the Suggestions and Comment section of the board.

The Dark Knight Rises presents "The Tumbler Tour"


Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures have announced the launch of a special Batman-themed "Tumbler Tour" to promote the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises.

Fans who have been eagerly awaiting the July 20th release will have an opportunity to get a firsthand look at the Tumbler and the Bat-Pod, which are rolling out on a coast-to-coast tour, sponsored by Mountain Dew and IMAX.

Both the Tumbler and the Bat-Pod have served as high-powered modes of transportation for Batman in Christopher Nolan's earlier blockbusters--with the Tumbler first appearing in Batman Begins, and the Bat-Pod being introduced in The Dark Knight. They will both be featured in different ways in Christopher Nolan's hugely anticipated finale to his Batman trilogy.

"The close-up image offers an unparalleled look at his freaky facewear. Part Hannibal Lector mask, part Predator mandible and wholly unlike the lycra luchador look he sported in the comic, it's destined to make the character an instant icon.

And those eyes… there’s something deeply unsettling about the manic stare Hardy’s locked in here, hinting a level of feral intensity not yet revealed in the trailers. Pray you're not caught in that line of sight...

On the mask, Hardy told us: “It’s not as bad as you might think. You just put it on. Work out where you drool goes. That’s it. Mask work is good fun. This one wasn’t painful; there was the stunt mask and there was the up-close on for the sexy glam shots.”

And he also shared some startling insight into the unforgiving regime he stuck to when we asked: what was required to attain the Bane bulk? “Eating entire villages of chickens.

“When I started I was about 160-something pounds. When I was done I was 190. You lift weights. You eat. You lift some more weights. You don’t run anywhere because if you do cardio, you drop weight. So it’s really good for heart attacks!”
