Is it inappropriate to squeal like a girl in a professional office setting? Or, is it inappropriate to sqeal like a girl if you are not a girl? Should definitely have asked the second one first. Also, asking for a friend.
Same question, except replace professional office setting with library.
I love how scared and exhausted Batman looks in that final shot.
Clearly, Batman could use a 5 Hour Energy.
When I saw this in the theater (jealous?) I actually felt real human emotions bad for Batman in that shot.
Well, he is fighting Bane who is super strong, so I guess thats why he would look like he’s in pretty bad shape. I wonder if Nolan is ballsy enough to take the film in this direction:
The messages in the trailer made me assume that’s exactly where the film is going.
Seriously, between that and Steve Rogers jumping on the grenade we have some sweet trailer money shots.
Absolutely LOVE that grenade scene. Kinda gets me right in the chestal region.
Conversation overheard when this played before Harry Potter:
Girl [indignant]: They didn’t show anything!
Guy: That’s why they call it a teaser.
Yeah, remember the Dark Knight teaser? They LITERALLY didn’t show anything aside from the logo.
I wish they’d just show us the whole movie already.
Hahaha, I love it. “Coming Summer 2012,” then the entire movie.
Back in 2009, there was a screening of Wrath of Khan in Austin (Alamo Drafthouse, I believe) wherein the projector “broke down” about 10 minutes in and Leonard Nimoy himself came on stage and asked the audience if they didn’t mind just watching the (at the time) unreleased JJ Abrams reboot.
I mean, that’s going to happen again with The Dark Knight Rise, right? “Sorry folks, ‘Crazy Stupid Love’ isn’t going to play today. Who wants to see the new BATMAN?!”
If Christopher Nolan weren’t directing this, I would be expecting it to be not so great solely because Anne Hathaway is in it. However, I am betting she will be filling the same role Ellen Page filled in Inception, which is the normally-painfully-annoying-actress-who-actually-does-a-good-job role.
I have ALWAYS thought the female casting decisions in Nolan’s films are the weak link! Katie Holmes/Maggie Gyllenhaal–neither one was really “right” for the Batman movies, and I don’t think Anne Hathaway is right for Catwoman—side note–do we even really care about Catwoman?? Fingers crossed it’ll work out!!
I think it will. I absolutely despise Ellen Page, but found her to be quite likeable in Inception. I thought her performance in that movie was decent to very good, probably because everything she said didnt have to be the MOST clever thing in the world (as it was in Juno, the first of an extremely long list of problems I have with that movie) and also because Inception was ridiculously good with or without her. I think Nolan can pull off the same thing with Anne Hathaway, where she isn’t her usual crappy annoying rom-com self and more just a person who happens to be playing the role of Catwoman. Basically make her as un-Anne Hathaway as possible. But yeah I think (hope) it won’t matter because the rest of the movie is holy crap so amazing.
I heard the villain in this one is going to be Venom.
So THAT’S what’s up with Topher Grace!
“Hey, What’s Up With Joker Grace? The That 70′s Show star has been cast to continue the role of Ledger’s Joker in the upcoming [gunshot] [thud].”
Batman: Turn Off The Dark Knight
In the dark early days of Gotham, a young Bruce Wayne goes on school caving expedition with his class and, most importantly, his crush, Rachel Dawes. While in the cave, young Bruce is bitten by a radioactive bat. Soon after, he notices that his body is changing. His voice drops considerably. He starts getting pimples. His Adam’s apple protrudes from his neck, and some other things happen to his body which are not PG-13 so we’ll let your imagination handle it. “You’re going through puberty,” says Alfred, somewhat condescendingly, and very Britishly. “You’re becoming a man.”
Several years later, Bruce Wayne, now a man, but also with the whole radioactive bat thing, finds out he is able to fly, but not terribly well, so many of the actors who portray him end up falling and getting very injured. The villainous force which threatens Gotham and whom Batman must face are the Irish Assholes, a terrible frightening duo of crazy, pompous dorks who only go by the names Bono and The Edge.
With great pie comes great responsibility.
Evidently Dark Knight Rises is going to be one of those “A Look Back” episodes, like in Three’s Company when Lucille Ball hosted and they just rolled clips of the gang’s previous shenanigans.
This is not the teaser we need, this is just the teaser some of us wanted because some of us are just impatient.
…so is Robin going to be in this one? Because someone of us love Robin…
According to Wiki, you’re outta luck.
“Nolan explained that as long as he is directing, Robin will not be appearing in the franchise because Christian Bale is still portraying a “young Batman,” which meant “Robin’s not for a few films.”"
Maybe someone will make Miller’s Batman Returns and we’ll get a bad-ass girl Robin that we deserve.
The title is actually The Dark Knight Returns.
Batman Returns was the Burton film.
I gotta say, I really love the muted, nearly monochromatic look of some of the shots.
i already got my spot in line. good thing i get internet here. i don’t think i could go a full year without it.
I’ve got a leaked copy of the script. Here’s a sample:
Bane: “I am Bane, and I could kill you. But death would only end your agony.”
Batman: “I am not what you (unintelligible) but only (garbled) when (can’t understand) you can (something)”
Bane: “Speak up, I can’t hear you.”
(turns around and Batman is gone)
“Oh, this fucking guy.”
MORE LIKE THE DARK KNIGHT SUMMARIZES! Also: I’m still unsure as to why The Joker, possessing the foreknowledge that Commissioner Gordon had faked his death in order to goad him into a failed assassination attempt, consciously turned that failed assassination into a complex chase sequence featuring rocket-propelled grenades/a successful double abduction with the conscious intent to be apprehended and escape via a cellphone activated explosive placed mindfully within a lunatic’s stomach by lunatic surgeons and then to have that sewed-up lunatic placed mindfully in a holding cell by a crooked police force while simultaneously holding two public officials hostage in warehouses filled with barrels of explosives? Like, the margin for error there is ~zero. A huge amount of fastidious preparation is put into scores of untrustworthy and mentally-unstable hands? On top of all that OH WAIT I FORGOT CHAOS.
“I’m just a dog chasing meticulously studied cars that are actually driven by a series of my own henchmen which serve as double agents working for the dog catcher to lure him out into a one-on-one final battle in which I will be accidentally ran over but I actually intended to be run over the entire time. I wouldn’t know what to do if I caught one!” is probably my favorite quote from the last film.
You know what I hate? Suspension of disbelief.
Well, that’s why you’re not a criminal mastermind.
um…..why so serious?
I don’t think anyone’s ever said TDK was a perfect film (Actually, I would bet people have said that before), it actually has plenty of problems. But it is a lot of fun. It’s got like, 7 acts or some crazy amount of acts, and the set pieces are nuts, and it’s fun.
Todd Alcott wrote a really in depth analysis of TDK over on ComicsBeat.com that I found very worthwhile.
He wrote it two years after its release, and it actually made me appreciate the film much more, having felt extremely lukewarm about it after seeing it in the theater.
EXCUSE ME, MOVIE TRAILER, BUT I’LL DECIDE FOR MYSELF WHETHER OR NOT THIS CONCLUSION IS EPIC.
Also, I thought we put a reprieve on the use of the word “epic,” because the internet ruined it. (much like the internet ruins everything)
