Michael Caine impressions are a dime a dozen, but Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon have arguably the best Caine impersonations out there.
With The Trip to Italy set to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival this week, IFC Films has unveiled the first clip from the sequel. Unsurprisingly, it features Brydon and Coogan once again dueling with their Caine voices. This time, though, they also roll in several other members of The Dark Knight Rises cast.
Almost a month ago, Joseph Gordon-Levitt signed on to produce Sandman, a feature adaptation of the remarkable Vertigo Comics series that quite a few filmmakers have taken cracks at over the last twenty years.
Now the man who burned and pined in 10 Things I Hate About You so long ago is now sharing his thoughts on the ambitious project while still staying vague about his plans for Sandman.
Since the mid-90s, plenty of filmmakers have tried to crack Sandman, adapting author Neil Gaiman's brilliant Vertigo comic series.

Opening in theaters on December 6th is the new thriller from director Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart) entitled Out of the Furnace, which was co-written by Cooper and Brad Ingelsby (The Dynamiter). The film truly features an all-star cast that includes Academy Award-winners Christian Bale (The Fighter), and Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland), Academy Award-nominees Casey Affleck (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford), Willem Dafoe (Platoon), Woody Harrelson (The People vs. Larry Flynt), and Sam Shepard (The Right Stuff), and popular actress Zoe Saldana (Star Trek Into Darkness).
IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Christian Bale to talk about his work on Out of the Furnace. The Oscar-winning actor discussed his new film, Philbrick's visit to the set, Bale's research for his role in Braddock, Pennsylvania while shooting The Dark Knight Rises in Pittsburgh, what Sam Shepard said about working with Bale, why Bale liked working with Shepard, collaborating with writer/director Scott Cooper, and why Cooper would not have made the film without Bale's participation.
It's been some time since we've heard so much as a peep from Interstellar, Christopher Nolan's mysterious original sci-fi tale.
Today, though, new photos from the Los Angeles set of Nolan's first movie since finishing up his Batman trilogy reveal...well, not a whole lot actually. But these images do show stars Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway, as well as the bottoms of their space-exploration costumes.

A decade, Christian Bale and the other actors up for the role of Bruce Wayne in Batman Begins had to shoot tests proving to Christopher Nolan and Warner Bros. that they could believably play the Caped Crusader.
Excerpts from Bale's screen test have emerged online, showing the actor in a batsuit for the first time, taking his bat-growl out for its first test drive.
