"Dark Knight Rises" Teaser Trailer Leaked Online! 

It's mostly shots from the last two "Batman" films, but it's still intriguing. Lots of Gary Oldman hospital drama, a little Bane (Tom Hardy) shot here and there, but nary a Catwoman (Anne Hathaway)! Here's the trailer by way of Vulture:

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2" Casts Magical Box-Office Spell Worldwide! 

The final film of the "Harry Potter" franchise shattered box-office records easily landing on top with $168.55 million opening! ("Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2" movie review)

How many records did the last "Harry Potter" installment break? Let me count the ways:

1) Biggest opening weekend of all time beating previous record-holder, "The Dark Knight" (also from Warner Bros.) which made $158.4 million in its first weekend

2) Biggest opening day of all time with its $92.1 million one-day take on Friday

3) Biggest midnight box-office opening when it opened Thursday with $43.5 million

But wait, there's more! The final chapter also has the biggest IMAX opening both domestic and worldwide, and "Harry Potter" beat "Harry Potter" in international box office. Previous crown holder, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" bowed down to "Deathly Hallows Part 2" which earned a smashing $476 million box-office debut!

Previous weekend's box-office champ, "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" slipped to No. 2 with $21.25 million. So far, the third "Transformers" movie featuring Shia LaBeouf has pushed its total past the $300 million mark. At No. 3 is the funny "Horrible Bosses" collecting $17.6 million.

Having a bad weekend was "Winnie the Pooh." The Disney hand-drawn animated tale only earned $8 million debuting at No. 6. Oh pooh :sad

Meanwhile, Woody Allen is enjoying the popularity of "Midnight in Paris." It's now officially his highest-grossing movie ever!

Here's the Top 10 box-office films for the weekend of July 15:

1. "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2," $168.55 million
