Members from the all-star ensemble of "The Dark Knight Rises" are speaking out on the tragic shooting in Colorado on Friday, including Batman himself. News of a gunman opening fire at a midnight showing of "Rises" in Aurora, Colo., killing 12 and injuring dozens, rocked the country on Friday morning. Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway and director Christopher Nolan are speaking out. "Words cannot express the horror that I feel,” said Bale in a statement. “I cannot begin to truly understand the pain and grief of the victims and their loved ones, but my heart goes out to them.” Hathaway, who plays Selina Kyle and her alter ego Catwoman in the film, is struggling to make sense of the horrors allegedly carried out by 24-year-old James Holmes.

The Dark Knight might need a little extra time to rise, as Christian Bale had a late one this weekend. It's not the Soho House cavorting or Chateau Marmont bungalow-hopping one might imagine. Bale burned the midnight oil Friday at work on the mystery-shrouded new film from director Terrence Malick. At Hollywood's Supperclub guests were greeted with posted notices from Dogwood Films, Malick's production company, informing them they'd be filmed upon entering the venue. The Ministry was present and spotted Bale immediately.

Is there anything Christian Bale can't, or won't, do in service of his art? I swear, if the role called for a 4-foot-tall woman, he'd schedule surgery. Don't even think about how his chilling serial killer in "American Psycho" was constructed. While it may seem like there's a madness in his method, there is certainly a method to his madness. Take his Oscar-winning portrayal of Dicky Eklund in "The Fighter. " So completely does he inhabit the twitchy small-time boxer who swings between smoking crack and staying clean, that when we see the real Dicky in the credits, he seems like a paler, pretend version of Bale.

"Batman" star Christian Bale will not face charges relating to an alleged assault last month on his mother and sister, London prosecutors said Thursday, suggesting their decision was based in part on the family members' wishes.
