Of course, Nolan utilized the format for certain segments for "The Dark Knight," but due to the camera's bulky nature and noisy operation, at the time it was largely limited to exteriors or brief action sequences (notably, the opening bank heist)...

    Review: 'Skyline' Is A Bore & Brain-Sucking Dreck

    In the opening moments of "Skyline," the new bargain basement sci-fi flick from the geniuses behind "Alien vs Predator: Requiem," glittery plumes of otherworldly mist drop into stock footage of a placid, sleepy Los Angeles.

    Rachel Weisz, Naomi Watts, Blake Lively, Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway & Keira Knightley In The Mix; Tom Hardy Reportedly Playing A VillainHere we go again. We probably could have broken this story ourselves as every one of these names have cropped up in recent casting rounds, but the most intriguing part of this story are not the names attached, but the revelation that Christopher Nolan is seeking two female leads for "The Dark Knight Rises": one, a love interest for Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale), the other, for a villain.
