Extras! How to be Bane, Professor X is clueless, Jack Reacher is a gaijin and more!

Welcome to The Extras! A daily dose of all the smaller movie related news, clips and just plain cool stuff that you might have missed!

Hey, did you walk out of The Dark Knight Rises and say to yourself “Boy, I really wish Anne Hathaway would star in a Catwoman movie on her own, gee willikers!”

Well, while the only way to make that possible would be to flash trailers of the Halle Berry version of that feline felon in front of people, Anne Hathaway is certainly up for it, as she explained to Access Hollywood;

No one’s talked to me about it. I would love it. Actually, it’s so embarrassing, I was at a press Q & A thing the other night for a screening of The Dark Knight Rises, and the moderator asked me, ‘So what was it like to say goodbye to the character?’ And I burst into tears, because I miss her.”

“It just makes me cry. I miss her. I love Selena so much and I love her presence in my life and getting to… I’m crying again. So assuming there was enough Kleenex in the world, I would love to do a spin-off.

Screw it, let’s get Michelle Pfeiffer back instead! She’s still alive, right?

 As we’ve all pointed out before, nothing beats having your life narrated by some Japanese bloke with a deep voice. And that’s just what’s happening here for Tom Cruise, as the latest international trailer for Jack Reacher goes heavier on the plot for the land of the rising sun.

Os!

 Skyfall is now the biggest film to ever hit the UK, since James Cameron released his crossover between Smurfs and Dancing with Wolves. Surpassing the  £93.8 million record set by Avatar, the latest 007 movie is now sitting on a few pretty pennies that have a combined total of £94,277,612.

James Bond will return? More like James Bond will ka-ching, amirite? Right? Anyone? Hoo boy, tough crowd…

 Patrick Stewart is kind of surprised about X-Men Days of future past. Especially the fact that he’s in it despite knowing next to zero about the plot, as he explained to Entertainment Weekly:

I don’t know that we’re doing it. I have not signed a contract yet. I know there is a project in development, but we have no dates. No detailed casting. Thrilled to hear that my dear friend and colleague Ian McKellen is on board, but I’m sorry, you know, you need to understand, I’m not being cute. I know nothing.

George Clooney’s next film, Monument’s Men is starting to shape up nicely, and it’s looking even better now that he’s roped in his former heist partner Matt Damon to star alongside him in it.

If he signs, that is. While Damon is currently in negotiations for a role in the flick, if he joins, he’ll teaming up with a heavyweight cast that includes Daniel Craig, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett and John Goodman.

 What would it take to be Bane? Unlike Kervyn who believes that shaving his head, wearing a headphones sideways on his face on and breaking my spine every morning that I walk into the office counts, the reality is much harsher.

Here’s an infographic from Warner Bros to make that point clear. Here’s also my latest X-Rays and doctor’s bill Kervyn.

 Tis the season for trailers! Specifically ones directed by people who get weak at the knees for lens flares. Yep, Star Trek into the Dark Knight Rises Reloaded into darkness will be getting a special web-exclusive trailer, showcasing 60 seconds of most likely more unanswered questions than usual!

Oh J.J Abrams, one day we will hunt you down and beat the answers out of you!

Time for another European director to hop across the pond to the state formerly run by the Governator, Cal-lee-forniyah. This time it’s Morten “Headhunters” Tyldum who’ll be directing The Intimidation Game, which is based on the real life exploits Alan Turing, the man who broke the Nazi enigma code during world war 2.

When I hit it big, keep an eye out for my Hollywood film, The Gatvol Game which will be based on the real life exploits Leon Schuster when he decided to break an entire nation with terrible films after 1998.

Hey, it’s been an entire day since we had a poster revealed on this site! Rectifying that, is a new one for Park Chan-wook’s Stoker, which stars Matthew Goode with a massive tomato sauce stain running down his face.

 And here’s something to end the day off for all you Pupaphobiacs out there. If you’ve ever wanted to see Neil Patrick Harris’s trouser weasel, here’s your chance to finally indulge that fantasy.
