TOP MOVIE NEWS: TUESDAY 12 JUNE
New Dark Knight Rises promo, Tom Cruise gives Top Gun 2 update, JJ Abrams acquired Wunderkind
For anyone who wasn't watching the football yesterday -or for anyone who was but went to the loo/bar/different channel at half time, here is the latest Dark Knight Rises TV spot, which appeared during the England/France match yesterday, after a cryptic note was posted on the film's UK Facebook page.
The note featured a series of numbers - 11.06.12 17.45 - or, to be more precise, half-time of the Euro 2012 game between England and France.
There's not much more here than what we've already seen, but there is a distinct focus on Catwoman, and a glimpse of what could be a kiss between Bruce Wayne and Marion Cotillard's character.
Inception actress Cotillard is officially playing Wayne Enterprises executive Miranda Tate but is heavily rumored to be playing Talia al Ghul, daughter of supervillain Ra's al Ghul — a rumour bolstered by the fact that child actress Joey King has confirmed she is playing a young Talia.
Tom Cruise gives Top Gun 2 Update
Tom Cruise, who is starring in this week's Rock of Ages movie, has reignited rumours about reprising his role as Maverick in a possible Top Gun 2.
He told MTV News: "We're working on it."
"We'll see what happens, if I can figure out the script and we get it. It would be fun getting into those jets. I want to get in those jets!"
Val Kilmer has also said that he would be interested in returning for the sequel.
Paramount executive Adam Goodman has confirmed that Top Gun 2 is in development, with The Town writer Peter Craig working on the script.
J J Abrams acquired Wunderkind
Paramount Pictures and J.J. Abrams's company Bad Robot today announced that they have optioned the script for Wunderkind, a Nazi thriller set in the 1970's.
Wunderkind, according to the Hollywood reporter, follows two spies, one with the CIA and another working for Israeli intelligence unit Mossad, as they hunt down Nazis. The two become reluctantly intertwined in their hunt and shocking twists result.
The Lost creator's company is co-producing the project with Paramount Pictures. Bad Robot has so far produced several highly successful films, including Mission Impossible: III, Cloverfield, Super 8 and Star Trek.
