CAUTION: NERDGASM AHEAD!
Appropriate screen and keyboard protection required past this point!
You probably don't remember this, but ten years and about a hundred pounds of muscle ago, Tom Hardy was the scrawny philosophical villain in Star Trek: Nemesis!
Yeah, that Tom Hardy.
Don't believe us?
Ch-Ch-Check the super-sweet clip of big bad Bane from Dark Knight Rises squaring off against Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the U.S.S. Enterprise (above)!!
Tom and Patrick Stewart are both brilliant British thespians and the powerful acting in this gem of a find reflects that!
Seriously! First this screen test will blow your mind. Then it will swallow. And it won't even try and kiss you after!!
In the immortal words of Captain Picard, "engage!"

To call Rush Limbaugh's most recent controversial comment berserk is an understatement — it's batsh*t cray cray! And quite literally too.
The conservative radio host went out on a limb on Tuesday and implied that Christopher Nolan decided to include the character of Bane in The Dark Knight Rises so that Mitt Romney would lose the upcoming election.
You see, Romney made his fortune through his private equity firm, Bain Capitol, which is now under heavy media scrutiny because of his political campaign. In his reaching rant, Limbaugh describes the matter as a "make-believe controversy," but he continues to make up an UNBELIEVABLE controversy himself. Here's what he said about the movie and his theory:

Any Dark Knight Rises trailer is a good trailer, but the newest (above) is especially good!
Not only does it give us a glimpse of some sweet new footage, but it takes a nice little stroll down memory lane by using clips from Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.
We know U probably thought your anticipation for the epic conclusion to Christopher Nolan's trilogy had reached its limit, but you were wrong.
Christian Bale's journey as Batman ends (maybe) on July 20 and we can't wait to see how!

Holy Propaganda, Batman!
Ch-ch-check out the brand new poster (above) for The Dark Knight Rises in which villain Bane is presented as some kind of revolutionary leader!
What does this tell us about the wildly anticipated movie?
We have no idea, but this amazing piece of artwork gives us a huge Joker smile!
Viva la revolucion!

And unlike that sweet TV spot we posted earlier this week, this one is nice and longggg!
A new full-length trailer for The Dark Knight Rises has been released and it's got lots of cool new footage.
The newest glimpse (above) at this summer's most highly anticipated blockbuster makes us feel a little bit bad for Bruce Wayne. After just barely beating the Joker, it seems like he's really met his match and Bane is NOT going to take it easy on him.
We hope Batman triumphs at the end, but we honestly have no idea what to expect other than a VERY entertaining movie!

The Dark Knight Rises has ANOTHER 30-second spot for television and this one may be the best of them all.
The short, but sweet trailer (above) gives us a glimpse of Christian Bale and Tom Hardy exchanging blows as Batman and Bane. Plus, we get some spectacular visuals of the Batwing avoiding incoming missiles and creating subsequent explosions.
This peek at the upcoming blockbuster makes us VERY glad that we already bought our tickets for opening night! Did U?

Now these TV spots are getting good!
We showed you the first 30-second trailer for The Dark Knight Rises, but now we've got the second (above)!
There is some flirtatious banter between Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle (a.k.a. Catwoman), plus Alfred gives us the low down on bad boy Bane when he quips, "Born and raised in hell on earth."
So that's why he's so pissed off and wants to destroy Gotham. Ha!
Srsly, July 20 can't come soon enough. Do U think the third and final film in Christopher Nolan's trilogy will be the best of them all?
