Before you get all hot under the collar about this “Raging Bull” sequel that’s in the works, keep in mind that Scorsese himself is being incredibly zen about all this.

Thanks to the new 3-D release of “Titanic,” those of us who saw the movie as perfectly credulous teenagers will now get to critique it as jaded, world-weary adults.

Cinematic cutie-pie Joseph Gordon-Levitt has a Tumblr blog that you should definitely follow, especially if you want to get the scoop on creative doodles such as this trailer for “The Dark Knight Rises” made entirely out of LEGO. (Remember, he has a small role in the actual film.) You can also still explore the world of LEGO Batman on the toy’s website.
