New Dark Knight Trailer Gives Us Only Glimpses Of What Is To Come, And Gives Me Slight Shivers To The Idea Of The Conclusion Of Noland’s Run   Leave a comment

Hey Everybody,

All I can really say is I’m loving what I’m seeing from Dark Knight Rises so far. I’m thinking is going to be very epic finally to the Noland trilogy but I can’t see how interested kids will be in this compared to other fair in the theaters this summer. As far as I’m concerned though, I’ll be in the IMAX theater come July a few times to see the final time we’ll see Christian Bale dawning the cowl. You’d better enjoy it as well because it looks like Warner’s is looking to get Ryan Reynolds to replace Bale in the reboot coming soon I’m sure. So here’s the 3rd and latest trailer below:

Not seeing too much is probably a good thing. Always want to be some what surprised if that’s possible any more. It might be the first time in a long while if ever that a third movie actually works well or at all. My fingers are crossed for Batsy this time around.

Till Next Time. Stay Tuned.

The Dark Knight Rises Teaser Trailer Hits And Teases Hard. Still A Year Away Till We Get To See Noland’s Final Batman Film. It’s Going to Be A Long Long Year!!!   1 comment

Hey Everybody,

Attached to the prints of the final Harry Potter flick this weekend is the teaser trailer for director Chris Noland’s third Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises. Not being released until next summer and yet the anticipation is already quite high for Noland’s last go at the Batman franchise, and by all reports it looks to be a truly epic ending to the trilogy.  Check out the teaser below to get those bat juices a flown’:

I love that last shot of Tom Hardy as Bane walking into shot facing off against The Dark Knight. I am very very excited to see a proper Bane brought to the screen. Anyone who was a Batman comic fan in the 80′ and 90’s knows and is praying we get to see the Bat being broken by Bane, I know I am with out a doubt. As before the cast looks incredible for the epic final chapter, with more being added to every day it seems.   Official press release from Warner Bros. back in May:

BURBANK, CA, May 19, 2011 – Principal photography has begun on Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ “The Dark Knight Rises,” the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s  Batman trilogy.

Leading an all-star international cast, Oscar® winner Christian Bale (“The Fighter”) again plays the dual role of Bruce Wayne/Batman. The film also stars Anne Hathaway, as Selina Kyle; Tom Hardy, as Bane; Oscar® winner Marion Cotillard (“La Vie en Rose”), as Miranda Tate; and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, as John Blake. Returning to the main cast, Oscar® winner Michael Caine (“The Cider House Rules”) plays Alfred; Gary Oldman is Commissioner Gordon; and Oscar® winner Morgan Freeman (“Million Dollar Baby”) reprises the role of Lucius Fox.

 In helming “The Dark Knight Rises,” Christopher Nolan is utilizing IMAX® cameras even more extensively than he did on “The Dark Knight,” which had marked the first time ever that a major feature film was partially shot with IMAX® cameras. The results were so spectacular that the director wanted to expand the use of the large-format cameras for this film.

The screenplay for “The Dark Knight Rises” is written by Christopher Nolan and Jonathan Nolan, story by Christopher Nolan & David S. Goyer. The film is being produced by Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Charles Roven, who previously teamed on “Batman Begins” and the record-breaking blockbuster “The Dark Knight.” The executive producers are Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Kevin De La Noy and Thomas Tull, with Jordan Goldberg serving as co-producer. “The Dark Knight” is based upon characters appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. Batman was created by Bob Kane.

Behind the scenes, “The Dark Knight Rises” reunites the director with several of his longtime collaborators, all of whom worked together on the “The Dark Knight.” The creative team includes director of photography Wally Pfister, who recently won an Oscar® for his work on Nolan’s “Inception”; production designer Nathan Crowley; editor Lee Smith; and Oscar®-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming (“Topsy-Turvy”). In addition, Paul Franklin and Chris Corbould, who both won Oscars® for the effects in “Inception,” will supervise the visual and special effects, respectively. The music will be composed by Oscar® winner Hans Zimmer (“The Lion King”).

The locations for “The Dark Knight Rises” span three continents and include the American cities of Pittsburgh, New York and Los Angeles, as well as sites in India, England and Scotland.

“The Dark Knight Rises” is a presentation of Warner Bros. Pictures, in association with Legendary Pictures. Slated for release on July 20, 2012, the film will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

Till Next Time. Stay Tuned.
