Those that enjoyed the 2008 family adventure movie Journey to the Center of the Earth might notice that Brendan Fraser is a no-show for the sequel, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. In Fraser's place next to Josh Hutcherson's character of Sean Anderson, however, is Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, which seems like an upgrade, at least in terms of potential action scenes and certainly in the "pec pop" department (though Fraser will always reign when it comes to awkward clapping).
In Mysterious Island, Hutcherson discovers a coded distress signal that leads him to a, well, mysterious island that doesn't exist on any map. Johnson, Hutcherson's new stepfather, comes along for the ride, as well as a tour guide pilot (Luis Guzman) and his daughter (Vanessa Hudgens). Michael Caine plays Hutcherson's missing grandfather. watch the trailer >> Posted 11.10.11 by Ryan
Production on The Dark Knight Rises formally began in mid-May, but as new set photos have revealed, work for Michael Caine has just begun.
In a recent interview with Collider, Caine spoke about working on the highly-anticipated sequel, but, like every Christopher Nolan-directed movie of late, there wasn't much Caine could reveal.

It’s fantastic. I started filming last week and I film next week. As the butler, I do a load of filming at the beginning, and everybody goes off and does all the adventures and they all come home shot to pieces and I patch them together when they all get back. Christopher Nolan, I think, is one of the greatest directors in the world and I’ve been lucky enough...this is my fifth movie with him. It’s such a pleasure to work with him and he’s so clever. We’ve all signed the Official Secrets Act. I’m lucky to be able to tell you the title of the movie. I remember I did an interview and someone said to me, "What are you doing next?" I said, "I’m doing Batman." I saw Chris and he said, "Why did you tell them you were doing Batman?" I said, "Because I am." He said, "You’re supposed to keep it secret." I said, "I couldn’t keep that a secret." Let me tell you…the plot is extraordinary...really extraordinary. I know why he wants to keep it a secret. You really need not to know till you see the movie.
Is it real or not? That the question lurking behind the supposed teaser trailer for director Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises.
According to Comic Book Movie, the bootleg trailer was shot in an Italian theater before showings of Green Lantern, but the MPAA rating screen that starts the trailer would seem to discount that. With no more information to go on, we consulted the Internet. Slashfilm doesn't think the trailer is real, while The Playlist isn't sure, and HeyUGuys thinks the trailer is the real thing. watch the trailer (and judge for yourself) >> Posted 06.18.11 by Ryan
In the months and years following the debut of The Dark Knight (TDK), the void of news about a possible sequel was often filled by legendary actor Sir Michael Caine, who played Bruce Wayne's (Christian Bale) butler and surrogate father, Alfred Pennyworth in Batman Begins and TDK. Caine started the rumor, now debunked, that Johnny Depp would be starring in The Dark Knight Rises (TDKR) as the Riddler, and was the first to announce that the sequel to TDK would go into production in April, which is only one month earlier than the expected start date. In a recent interview with E! News, Caine once again chatted about Batman, discussing the TDKR script and what he thinks about the recent cast additions. what did Caine have to say? >> Posted 02.15.11 by BrentJS
ReelzChannel Celebrity Rundown
During shooting for the comedy Wanderlust — set for an October 2011 release — Malin Akerman developed a massive girl-crush on single co-star Jennifer Aniston, telling People "Jennifer is one of my favorite people now. Not only is she an extraordinary actress, she is such a loving, genuine woman and fun. You want her to be your best friend. She's amazing." Akerman also exhorted men to "get out there! Nab her!" and claimed that "she's every guy's dream." Brad Pitt, Vince Vaughn, British model Paul Sculfor, and singer John Mayer were all unavailable for comment.
Batman fans looking for any news about The Dark Knight Rises — set for a July 20, 2012 release — got a morsel yesterday from Sir Michael Caine, who told Empire "script in January, shoot in May, finish in November." Caine neither confirmed nor denied rumors that Eddie Murphy will be cast as The Riddler.
No Joker, of course, for the Dark Knight sequel, but the SoHo apartment where Health Ledger died is finally back on the market, nearly three years after the actor's drug overdose. The 4,400-square-foot loft, located at 421 Broome Street — completely gutted and renovated — can be yours for $5M.
That's chump change compared to the True Blood house. The three-story, 12,045-square-foot Malibu pad overlooks the Pacific Ocean and is on the market for $35M. Posted 11.19.10 by reelz

Ask anyone who saw Christopher Nolan's Inception and you'll likely get several different opinions on the ending. Sir Michael Caine, who appeared in the movie, has his own theory about what the ending meant, which he shared with BBC Radio (WARNING: Spoilers ahead).

[The spinning top] drops at the end, that's when I come back on. Young people say to me, "At the end, when you're there, is it a dream or is it real." If I'm there it's real, because I'm never in the dream. I'm the guy who invented the dream.
Whether he has actually been in-the-know or not, legendary actor Sir Michael Caine has been pretty loose-lipped about the highly anticipated sequel to The Dark Knight (TDK) in the past. In 2008, Sir Michael started the rumor that Johnny Depp would be starring in Batman 3 (working title) as the Riddler, a rumor that he was forced to retract one year later. In November 2009, Sir Michael said that Batman 3 might not happen after all. Then, in July, he said that the movie would go into production in April 2011, even though director Christopher Nolan said only last week that there is still no green light for the date. Now, Sir Michael has revealed that Batman 3 could very well be the last time he plays Bruce Wayne's (Christian Bale) butler, confidante and father figure, Alfred Pennyworth, the character he played in both Batman Begins and TDK.
