Did Tom Waits Inspire Heath Ledger’s Joker?

Heath Ledger’s portrayal of The Joker in “The Dark Knight” is one of the most chillingly original performances on screen — but perhaps the late actor was influenced by other characters in pop culture? Like, say, gravely voiced singer-songwriter Tom Waits? Watch this 1979 interview with Waits and try and tell me the vocal inflectio…

Marion Cotillard Rises High Above The Rest At “The Dark Knight Rises” Premiere

The cards are stacked undeniably in Marion Cotillard’s favor, but she always manages to surprise me with her impeccable sartorial choices. It’s incredible how one woman can go so long without wearing anything boring or even erring on the questionable side: she kills it, and she’s so believably dynamic that it’s never like, “oh, it&#8217…

Apparently, when most of us take off for the holidays to hang out with our families, the internet’s cat population takes over. Witness this trailer for the new film “The Dark Knight: Rises” — the latest in the Batman series — as performed by cats. Ironically, incredibly, the role of Catwoman (as played in the actual movie by…

It’s no surprise designers are looking to superheroes for inspiration this season. This summer saw the release of five superhero movies.

The Dark Knight Is Bad For Small Bladders

Over on the Los Angeles Times blog All the Rage, Monica Corcoran complains that The Dark Knight is too long for its female fans. At 2 hours and 32 minutes in length, the movie is tad lengthy, and when Monica watched the movie on Sunday, seven women took bathroom breaks at the two hour mark.

Slideshow: Maggie Gyllenhaal Doesn’t Need Your Fashion Approval

I heart Maggie Gyllenhaal. She’s badass, number one, for having the cajones to breast feed in public, inciting serious controversy among those who are more uptight. She is also super cool for her film choices — Sherrybaby was brilliant, and we can’t wait to see her show Katie Holmes how acting is done in The

A new trailer for Batman: The Dark Knight is out and it looks crazy freaking good.
