It’s that time of the week again: a time when I completely overlook the plethora of coverage we’ve provided our readers with in the preceding week, all in the name of bringing you the best stories we have to offer. In this week’s “Top 5″ installment you’ll find all kinds of premium content such as Michael Caine’s potential The Dark Knight Rises spoiler, our set visit coverage of The Muppets, the first images from Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit, producer Dean Devlin talking about potential sequels for Independence Day and Stargate, and our exclusive interview with Frank Darabont and producer Gale Anne Hurd regarding AMC’s The Walking Dead.

Hit the jump to find brief recaps and links to each.

1. Michael Caine Talks THE DARK KNIGHT RISES; Did He Give Away a Spoiler?

When projects are as shrouded in secrecy as Christopher Nolan films typically are, just getting actors to admit that they’re shooting the film is quite an achievement. Michael Caine does that and a little bit more for Steve at the Cars 2 press junket.

2. THE MUPPETS Set Visit Coverage

Let’s face it: getting older kind of sucks. That’s why you should take a break from the “real world” and revisit your youth with our set visit video blog for director James Bobin’s The Muppets starring Jason Segel (who also co-wrote the pic) and Amy Adams. If that is to your liking, I’m also recommending that you read Steve’s set interviews with Jason Segel, Amy Adams, James Bobin, and co-writer Nicholas Stoller.

3. First Images from THE HOBBIT

So, you may have heard that some guy named Peter Jackson is returning to J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic work to film a couple of pics based on The Hobbit. In case you’re familiar, I suggest checking out the first images from the film by clicking here.

Although we won’t get to partake in Season 2 of AMC’s The Walking Dead until October, hearing showrunner Frank Darabont and producer Gale Anne Hurd talk about gore, their favorite characters, and the future of the series is the next best thing. Click here to read (or listen) to our exclusive interview at the Saturn Awards.
