So I saw the latest and the conclusion to Christopher Nolan’s Batman Trilogy -The Dark Knight Rises at the 12:02 showing at 34th Street Loews in NYC. The line was HUGE!!!! by far the biggest I have ever seen for a movie premier. Luckily my boyfriend got there 3 hours early so we were close to the front. Plus I needed make sure I had a seat in the top back row. But ultimately we both had come early in hopes that we could take a few flicks of knock off Batman’s or other worthy cos-players. Sadly we were both disappointed all we got was a whole lot of nostalgic Batman tee-shirts, nothing we had not seen before. We still ended up taking a few flicks of the line! Check them out below.

Here’s some new stills from the Disney XD Tron: Uprising animated series. These still feature Olivia Wilde character Quorra – The last surviving ISO. A Isomorphic Algorithms aka ISO are a race of programs that spontaneously evolved on the Grid, as opposed to being created by users. Kevin Flynn and Clu 2 discovered the first ISO in 1984 while at the edge Tron City. Subsequent to his betrayal, Clu initiated a genocidal assault on the ISOs which was later referred to as the Purge. By the time of TRON: Legacy, Quorra is the last known ISO alive, after Kevin Flynn saved her from the Purge. ISOs differ from standard programs with distinctions in their appearance and capabilities, but where they are truly unique is in their code base. While regular programs conform to the rigid structure defined by their users. Check out more still below. An all-new episode of Tron: Uprising titled “Isolated” will premiere Thursday July 5, 2012 at 8:00 PM.
