FILE - This undated image released by Warner Bros. Pictures shows Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne, left, and Michael Caine as Alfred in a scene from the "The Dark Knight Rises." Studio executives expected their biggest summer ever this year. What they got were two colossal hits ("The Avengers" and "The Dark Knight Rises"), a solid slate of back-up blockbusters (among them "The Amazing Spider-Man" and "Ted") and plenty of duds ("Battleship," "Total Recall") that just didn't deliver.
