'Gang Related' premiere: Every hero has a dark side, and a lot of exposition to get through

If you’ve seen Martin Scorsese’s The Departed, then the plot for Gang Related may sound a little familiar.

'RoboCop' premiere, On the Scene: 6 epic moments from the black carpet (with bonus Batman!)

The carpet might have been black at the RoboCop reboot’s Los Angeles premiere Monday night, but the festivities were anything but dark. Read on for our favorite moments of the night:

2. Batman meets the new Commissioner Gordon. Gary Oldman rolled onto the carpet at the TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood with a story about how he and Keaton “pinched each other” when they realized they were both in Batman movies. Oldman said he told Keaton, “You know, I’m Nolan’s last Gordon and you’re Burton’s first Batman.” Keaton played Batman/Bruce Wayne twice, while Oldman played Jim Gordon three times. And oh, Oldman was also Dracula. Pretty awesome.
