You know, with all the hype (deservedly) surrounding Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, I almost forgot Christopher Nolan’s third and final chapter in his Batman series was coming. The Dark Knight Rises has gone painfully quiet ever since the full length trailer arrived way back in December. I can only hope that Nolan and has bunch of PR people are conjuring up some fantastic marketing campaign as we speak, another trailer maybe? Some clips? Hell, anything will do.
The Dark Knight Rises is only released 6 weeks after Ridley Scott’s beast, so with the amount of advertising Scott has been up to, it is about time Nolan did the same. So, just to have an excuse to write about my first or second most anticipated film of the year (its a very close call between this and Prometheus), I have found some images to share. Some were revealed in Entertainment Weekly this week, and it is likely that you will recognise most of the images from the full length trailer, but who cares, it has Batman, Bane, Catwoman, John Blake and Lucius Fox in them!
Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ “The Dark Knight Rises” is the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, Leading an all-star international cast, Oscar(R) 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(R) winner Marion Cotillard (“La Vie en Rose”), as Miranda Tate; and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, as John Blake. Returning to the main cast, Oscar(R) winner Michael Caine (“The Cider House Rules”) plays Alfred; Gary Oldman is Commissioner Gordon; and Oscar(R) winner Morgan Freeman (“Million Dollar Baby”) reprises the role of Lucius Fox.
