THE MOVIE "The Dark Knight Rises"
THE DEAL Warner Bros. has been parceling out glimpses of this breathlessly awaited, all-but-guaranteed blockbuster, but earlier this week came the biggest sneak peek yet. The entire soundtrack, by composer Hans Zimmer, is now streaming for free at empireonline.com and will be available there exclusively through Sunday. It's not the same as actually seeing the film, but you may pick up some clues from track titles like "Despair," "Mind If I Cut In?" and "Imagine the Fire." The movie arrives in theaters July 20.
THE MOVIE "Fifty Shades of Grey"
THE DEAL Two producers of 2010's Oscar-winning drama "The Social Network," Michael DeLuca and Dana Brunetti, have signed on for the movie adaptation of E.L. James' best-selling erotic novel, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The story of a college graduate who becomes involved with a bondage-loving billionaire, "Fifty Shades of Grey" began as a work of "Twilight" fan-fiction but quickly became a word-of-mouth sensation; it has since sold about 20 million copies. There's no official word on casting, though Chris Pine recently dashed many a hope on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" by saying, "I'm not doing it, no."
THE EVENT "Childhood Nightmare Fodder"
THE DEAL Skip Elsheimer, founder of the A/V Geeks Educational Film Archive, currently home to 24,000 16-mm films, returns to Long Island next week with a collection of cautionary tales that most likely "warped the minds of impressionable children during the golden age of educational filmmaking." The lineup includes such worrisome-sounding titles as "Dead Is Dead," "Cipher in the Snow" and "Toothache of a Clown."
