During an interview with COLLIDER.COM, Gary Oldman had the following to say about Sir Michael Caine's tremendous acting skills...

“There’s an emotional scene coming up in the next Batman, which I am obviously, absolutely sworn to secrecy about… They would kill me. Well, I’d do the press junket and then they’d kill me. Watching Michael Caine work, as Alfred, was a great lesson for me. Just focus, concentration. He has this emotional scene. I’m kidding you not. It was tears and the whole thing. And it’s ‘Take 1.’ (Oldman snaps his fingers) He got it. ‘Take 2' (snaps his fingers again), Got it. Take 3 (snaps his fingers) Got it. He’s just on the money. Every single time. It’s just extraordinary...you get inspired by it.”

I wonder if the scene GO's referring to is the one we see in trailer #2 where Alfred tells Bruce he promised his parents he'd protect him and he had not? We'll find out soon enough as we're only about 5 months away from RISES' release!

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES -- starring Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotillard -- hits theaters on JULY 20, 2012!
