Hype for The Dark Knight Rises at MTV Movie Awards

After last night's MTV Movie Awards show, social media is buzzing about 'The Dark Knight Rises', which took centre stage when new footage was shown during the ceremony.

The sudden and tragic death of Heath Ledger was also something that reflected deeply on the cast, and in particular Christian Bale. The actor who attended the MTV Movie Awards alongside Christopher Nolan became teared up as the presentation of the new film started. The journey for the cast and crew of the last 3 Batmans has been an immense one, and as we can see the final outing for Christian Bale in 'The Dark Knight Rises' has a lot of expectation, not just from the fans, but from the creators too.

Other highlights of the night included a 'sex act with an ax' between Joe Manganiello and Matthew McConaughey, and a string of commercials and previews for this year's big movies. 'The Hunger Games' and 'The Twilight Saga' got their fair share of award attention, but wasn't that predictable?

Every year the MTV Movie Awards is seen as a highlight of the year's succesful movies, and what's yet to come for big blockbusters.
