This Entertainment Weekly cover featuring The Dark Knight Rises’ Batman (Christian Bale) and Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) has been floating around online for some time. We’ve finally posted it.
One of the most eagerly awaited 2012 releases, The Dark Knight Rises is expected to become one of the year’s top grossers — if not the top grosser. Following his Batman stints in Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, Christian Bale returns as The Caped Crusader. Anne Hathaway, a Best Actress Oscar nominee for Jonathan Demme’s Rachel Getting Married, shows up in this one as The Masked Saracen or some such.
Directed by Christopher Nolan, and written by Nolan and his brother Jonathan Nolan, The Dark Knight Rises also features La Vie en Rose / Inception’s Marion Cotillard, This Means War / Wettest Country’s Tom Hardy, Looper / Inception’s Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Educating Rita / The Quiet American’s Michael Caine, Driving Miss Daisy / The Shawshank Redemption’s Morgan Freeman, Reuben Reuben / Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence’s Tom Conti, and Pacific Heights / Full Metal Jacket’s Matthew Modine.
Also: Juno Temple, Josh Pence, Daniel Sunjata, Nestor Carbonell, Joey King, Brett Cullen, Chris Ellis, Josh Stewart, Christopher Judge, Aidan Gillen, Adam Rodriguez, and Rob Brown.
The Dark Knight Rises opens July 20.
