Tom Cruise debuted Jack Reacher with the world premiere at London's Leicester Square last night. He posed with Nicole Scherzinger and Lewis Hamilton when he wasn't busy signing autographs and greeting fans. Tom's leading lady, Rosamund Pike, hit the carpet in a glamorous yellow Alexander McQueen gown while his pal Tom Hardy met up with David Haye on their way inside. Tom's gearing up for the Jan. 3 release of his action film, but he's also juggling other projects. He's been filming All You Need Is Kill around the UK with Emily Blunt in recent weeks and is also featured in the new trailer for Oblivion. Tom and Emily broke from the cameras to dine out together last week, before Emily headed to LA for the weekend.
The stars of The Dark Knight Rises gathered in London yesterday evening for their UK premiere. Anne Hathaway wore a Gucci gown with an intricate neckline to pose on the carpet with co-stars Tom Hardy and Christian Bale. Marion Cotillard, one of Dior's spokeswomen, showed her brand loyalty in an ensemble from the Christian Dior Couture collection designer Raf Simons sent down the runway just two weeks ago. The event also had a royal touch with Prince Harry and Princess Eugenie in attendance. Both Anne and Marion changed up their looks since Monday's NYC debut of The Dark Knight Rises. For the Big Apple screening, Anne wore white Prabal Gurung and Marion also donned a light, poufy Dior creation. The final instalment of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy is out in Australia today, and so far, critics are nearly uniform in their praise for the finished product.
After eons of waiting, The Dark Knight Rises is finally out tomorrow! We were fortunate enough to see the final instalment of Christopher Nolan's epic Batman trilogy yesterday (here's our review), and heaps of fans have bought tickets for midnight screenings. Until you make your way to the cinema, we have several photos from the film for you to pore over, including looks at Bale in the bat suit, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a dapper cop, new love interest Marion Cotillard, and Anne Hathawayin her Catwoman costume. Take a look now before the film hits cinemas July 19.

The guys and girls of Lawless hit the red carpet for a premiere of their movie at the Cannes Film Festival last night. Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy, and Guy Pearce appeared on the Croisette in tuxes, while their leading ladies Jessica Chastian and Mia Wasikowska donned gowns. Special guests like Sean Combs and Bérénice Bejo walked the press line as well. Shia, Tom, Jessica and Mia had a busy day, chatting up the press and posing for pictures at a morning photocall. The film, based on the book The Wettest County in the World, is out in September, and the Lawless reviews are so far good. Shia spoke about Lawless and how it's a good representation of the movies he'd like to be making. He said, "I'm going to be doing things that I like for a while, until the business says, 'No, we need you to do this, or you can't work.'" Jessica has been especially busy around the festival since she has another film screening. Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted premiered, she wore Armani for that event alongside costars in the animated picture like Jada Pinkett Smith and Chris Rock.
The third (and most likely final) trailer for The Dark Knight Rises is here, and it's just as eerie as the first two. However, there's a lot of new footage here and plenty of new clues about what we're in for when the film hits cinemas July 19. Here are the top five reasons we're excited about the latest preview:
- Joseph Gordon-Levitt does, in fact, speak in this movie. We're still not entirely sure about JGL's role in this film, other than the fact that he'll play a cop, but at least now we see more of him in action. This is the first time we've heard any of his lines, and it appears that he'll be one of the good guys — and maybe even in cahoots with Anne Hathaway's Selina Kyle. Which brings me to my next point . . .
- Catwoman might not be a villain. We've all assumed that Selina would be another nemesis for Batman (Christian Bale), but now it appears that she might be a new sidekick instead. Not only does she seem sympathetic to Bruce Wayne, but she voluntarily gets in the batmobile. Perhaps we were a little too quick to accuse of her grand theft batpod.
- The batmobile takes flight. That's right — Batman's ride has always been pretty badass, but now it can actually fly!
- Bane (Tom Hardy) might be understandable after all. Granted, he doesn't speak too much in this preview, but I still found him to be a lot easier to understand in this trailer than he's been in the past.
- Bruce Wayne and Miranda Tate lock lips. Bye bye Maggie Gyllenhaal, hello Marion Cotillard. Cotillard's Miranda still doesn't have any lines in this preview, but we do see her and Bruce in a pretty serious embrace. I'm grateful for a bit of lightness in the midst of all this terrorism, but it does raise a new question — if Selina isn't a villain, might we have a love triangle on our hands?
Check out the preview and tell us what else you're excited about when you keep reading.
We really couldn't be more excited for The Dark Knight Rises, and the July release date can't come fast enough. Until then, we have several photos from the film to pore over, including looks at Batman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a dapper cop, the villain Bane, and Anne Hathaway in her Catwoman costume. Take a look now!

Reese Witherspoon joined her This Means War leading men on the red carpet at their LA premiere last night. She was decked out in a strapless dress from Miu Miu to sign autographs for fans and pose for pictures with "Piney" and Tom, who brought along his British actress fiancée Charlotte Riley. Yesterday, Reese talked about having more kids, saying, "I would love that!"
Chelsea Handler, who plays Reese's BFF, didn't pose with her co-stars. Instead, she made her way solo down the press line, and joked about her relationships with Reese, Chris and Tom. When asked which actor, Chris or Tom, she would pick if given the choice, Chelsea went with Mr. Hardy since she's a big fan of muscles. We will likely see more of the foursome before the film hits cinemas next Tuesday, Feb. 14, on Valentine's Day.
