If you were fortunate enough to watch The Avengers in theaters yesterday you probably got to see the new The Dark Knight Rises trailer. Although this trailer was released April 30th I wait until after The Avengers week to post about it. Also there are still a lot of Avengers and Comic Book things I am going to post coming soon until I actually see The Avengers movie so look for that.
The previous Christopher Nolan Batman, The Dark Knight, is considered by many to be the quote: "Best Comic Book" movies of all time. While I do think that The Dark Knight is overrated, it is still ranks at around 26th on my All Time Favorite Movies list, which is really high and I highly recommend watching the first Chris Nolan Batman movie Batman Begins. Before this trailer I really was not really excited about The Dark Knight Rises but after watching the trailer, I really excited for the movie! Although it will probably be overrated no matter how good or bad the movie actually is. I think it will be the fourth best movie of the year after The Hobbit, The Avengers, and The Amazing Spider-Man. This trailer is great in terms of structure and not showing too much. There is a large noticeable change with Bane's voice from the previous trailer (watch below) compared to the current trailer. He is much easier to understand than in the other trailer. It was said that his voice would change and I really lad that they did because trying to watch a full moive with two guys, who sound like a garbage disposals. It is not clear how this Bane will be anything like the one from the comic since Bane uses a chemical named "Venom" to give him enhanced strength and size, but he does not look very similar to the comic although Nolan never really stayed true to the comics. What I like the most about the trailer is the action. It looks like it will finally have some decent action, which the previous movies serverly lacked. The action the other Batman movies were really poorly choreographed and were did not use enough lighting. The cast for The Dark Knight Rises is phenomal incuding returning cast members: Christian Bale, Michael Caine (Inception), Gary Oldman and Morgan Freeman. Plus some new names like: Tom Hardy (Inception), Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Inception) and Marion Cotillard (Inception). Hopefully Christopher Nolan has learned how to direct action better since his master peice, Inception. It looks like Inception meets The Dark Knight with the casting choices. While I do not read any spoilers about movies, I do know that The Dark Knight Rises takes place 8 years after the end of The Dark Knight. Overall the trailer looks great and I am excited to see the movie.
Below are some custom screen shots and my thoughts about each picture.
It appears that Bane defeats Batman and that is why he is captured in the later clips.
This looks like the bad guy version of the Tumbler Batmobile.
I guess this is Catwoman's verison of the Batpod.
This looks like it should be on a poster. Batman looks awesome.
I really like how Catwoman is going to help Batman in the movie and not just the villain in the movie.
Batman vs. Bane, this looks like an awesome battle.
I have no idea what this person is doing in that part, it is very odd.
No this is what The Dark Knight needed some fully lit day time action scenes. The only question is what are the cops not using guns?
Marion Cotillard from Inception will be playing a original character to the Batman universe Miranda Tate, who will be the romantic interest of Bruce Wayne/Batman in the movie.
This is one my favorite shots from the trailer Batman and Catwoman fighting some thugs.
Basically Bane during the big Battle of Gotham, this looks like it is going to be good.
It seems that Bane has a few copies of the Tumbler and a good shot of the Batwing in action.
This appears to be one of Batman's new gadgets. It looks like a eclectic shock gadget, similar to one used in the Arkham City video game.
An under shot of the Batwing. Maybe it is like a helicopter.
