See that up there? That’s video of production of the Dark Knight Rises. Cool, huh? I know there’s a lot of you guys out there who are positively nuts about this movie, so I tried to get everything together all in one little neat package for you to check out today. But what I really want to talk about is Christian Bale in the role of Batman. Appropriate? If not, who should be playing this new, updated Batman? Personally, I’m not a big Christian Bale fan. As far as I’m concerned, he’s the same in every role. My husband thinks Bale is the best Batman yet, but I don’t know, guys. I just don’t think so. These are some trying times, and I think it’s imperative that we make GOOD decisions in everything we do, you know?
So we’ve already kind of talked about the interesting choice of Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, so now have your say – who’s your favorite Batman?

Tod’s is a leather company based out of Italy, in case you were wondering, or thought maybe it had something to do with red vehicles, homelessness, or maybe even a research foundation for people who are missing half an arm, because as you can see in this top photo here, poor Anne‘s arm has somehow been Photoshopped away.
And here some of you were thinking that little Anne didn’t have a leg to stand on (you were wrong; it’s her arm).

And what a fierce fighting face she makes, eh folks?
Lots of people are all excited about the newest Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises, but to me it’s just another remake of another remake of another remake. I like Anne Hathaway – she’s grown on me (much like a fungus) over the past few weeks, but I’m not all that impressed with her Catwoman role. I think it’s going to be much like Halle Berry‘s take on Catwoman: forgettable. Sorry, Anne.
But let’s give the girl an A for effort and an A+++ for those faces, huh?

Hathaway, on playing a girl from Leeds:
One of the things I was struck by was that so often when people leave Yorkshire they don’t hang on to the accent, the accent evens out and starts to mimic some new sounds from where they’re from, so you can have 10 people from Yorkshire and they have 10 completely utterly different accents. But I worked with a dialect coach and just kind of tried my best.
Earlier this week, the Guardian gleefully reported that Anne Hathaway ‘perfected’ her accent by watching episodes of British soap Emmerdale. Now, I have no ear for accents at all—she sounds OK to your dense American ear, too, right?—but I guess she’s supposed to sound a little more like Scary Spice.
Now some folks across the pond are going apeballs thanks to an offhanded remark Hathaway made at the European One Day premiere on August 23. Hathaway’s crime? She wouldn’t be opposed to playing Kate Middleton in a bio-pic. Don’t you dare, Anne!
But most importantly, what Anne Hathaway was wearing on August 23, bleeeuuurrghhh! And the way she matched her lipstick and nail polish! Bleeeuuuurggghhh! Horf! (Cute shoes, though.)

Don’t you just love when celebrities do stuff like this? Stuff that’s just so totally out of character, you have to say “Wow, [fill in the blank] seems like a really likable person. I could be friends with [fill in the blank].” This is what happened to be with Anne Hathaway this morning (because duh, Conan‘s on way too late for me to stay up and watch), and I’m so glad this exists. I just love finding reasons to appreciate famous people I’ll never know and whom I’ve never cared about before. It’s like randomly learning you’re pretty good at knitting or something.

Why am I so stuck on Anne Hathaway lately? Sorry, you guys—I don’t know what’s with me.
Here’s Miss Hathaway with One Day costar Jim Sturgess. And she’s just so prim! Take her down a peg, Josh Horowitz!
By the way: Celebuzz is maybe none-too-keen on Hathaway’s black-and-white striped maxi dress (it has a train), and I am kind of with them on this. In reviewing the video a third time, I feel like Hathaway is stepping on the hem of her own dress constantly.
