THE DARK KNIGHT RISES trailer: Catwoman for the Oscars?

The Dark Knight Rises trailer Catwoman Anne HathawayThe Dark Knight Rises trailer: Anne Hathaway's Catwoman to steal latest Batman movie. "You don't know a thing about me," Anne Hathaway / Selina Kyle / Catwoman tells Christian Bale / Bruce Wayne / Batman in the latest The Dark Knight Rises trailer. (Please scroll down.) Bruce Wayne may be clueless, but we do know a thing or two about Anne Hathaway, who has come a long way since her The Princess Diaries and Ella Enchanted days. Heck, Hathaway has come a long way since even her Brokeback Mountain and The Devil Wears Prada days.

Anne Hathaway's Catwoman: Film noir dame

Christian Bale's Batman whisper reminds me of Clint Eastwood in Dirty Harry (and just about everything else, all the way to Million Dollar Baby and Gran Torino). That's not exactly a good thing.

Anne Hathaway's sultry speech patterns, however, remind me of Ava Gardner or Rita Hayworth or Jane Greer or some other film noir (and not-so-noir) dame of '40s Hollywood movies. Considering the noir look of Christopher Nolan's Batman movies – verify that for yourself by checking out the Dark Knight Rises trailer below – Hathaway's performance seems to be (judging by the countless TDKR trailers and TV spots) right on target. Here's wondering if Nolan had her watch Lauren Bacall in To Have and Have Not, or perhaps Veronica Lake in The Blue Dahlia.

Now, the big question: Will Anne Hathaway be nominated for an Oscar for her Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises or for her Fantine in Tom Hooper's Les Misérables? Both (Best Actress / Best Supporting Actress)? Neither? Oh, c'mon. Well, stay tuned.

The Dark Knight Rises cast

Written by Christopher Nolan and his brother Jonathan Nolan, in addition to Anne Hathaway and Christian Bale The Dark Knight Rises features Marion Cotillard, Tom Hardy as Bane, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Gary Oldman, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, and Tom Conti.
