In Our Time Of Need: A Dark Knight Rises

This weekend like many of you, I went to see The Dark Knight Rises. It was an excellent end to Christopher Nolan’s trilogy and what I feel is the epitome of superhero movies. Batman is and always has been my favorite superhero. Sure he doesn’t have cool mutant powers like the X-Men nor did he get bit by a radioactive spider, Batman’s super powers stem from his humanity. Batman fans all have their favorite version of our hero but I think no one has captured the duality of Bruce Wayne/Batman better than Christian Bale. This is no doubt also a credit to Christopher Nolan for realizing Bale’s intensity matches his own dark vision of the superhero.

The build up to The Dark Knight Rises hailed it as an epic that could possibly dethrone The Avengers as this years top film, as well as this years top comicbook-to-film adaptation. The Dark Knight must return from his reclusive life in the halls of Wayne Manor to face an enemy that outdoes him in terms of both strength and intelligence- Bane. Batman must stop Bane from raising the city of Gotham while fighting his inner demons that have plagued him as well as dealing with his dark past, which has finally caught up with him. Does The Dark Knight Rises do justice for The Caped Crusader? Hit the break for the fullspoiler free review.

Not sure if Warner Bros should release any more clips from The Dark Knight Rises, heads are eventually going to pop before the movie’s July 20th release. We know Nolan is ending the trilogy with a massive bang but they need people alive and coherent enough to watch the final release (and buy those tickets)!
The recent trailer is labeled as an “Exclusive Nokia Trailer” however it doesn’t really matter because it’s 2:17 minutes of bone breaking awesome! Watch the clip but if you haven’t been paying attention or don’t know much of the Bane\Batman dynamic from the comics, you may find some spoilerish elements. Most of you geeks won’t be surprised but just on the safe side, you’ve been warned.
Hit the jump, peep the trailer and leave your thoughts in the comments…
Holy Dark Knight details Batman- the gritty details of the Dark Knight Rises

The director of the upcoming Batman film, the Dark Knight Rises, spoke recently to film magazine Empire about what the movie is all about and also the man who broke the Bat – Bane. By the way SPOILERS AHEAD! Nolan, who directed both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, told the magazine that the Dark Knight Rises will be about finishing Batman and Bruce Wayne’s story, whether or not it will end with Bane snapping Batman’s back we shall have to wait and see. As for the setting, Nolan said that it will in fact be set 8 years after the events of the Dark Knight with an older Bruce in a bad state. Batman Beyond film anyone?
As for Bane, the drug pumped, intellectual lunatic that Batman will have to face will be played by Tom Hardy, who played Eames in Inception (another Nolan film) and said a lot to the magazine about Bane’s character :
He’s brutal. Brutal. He’s a big dude who’s incredibly clinical, in the fact that he has a result-based and oriented fighting style. It’s not about fighting. It’s about carnage. The style is heavy-handed, heavy-footed, it’s nasty. Anything from small-joint manipulation to crushing skulls, crushing rib cages, stamping on shins and knees and necks and collarbones and snapping heads off and tearing his fists through chests, ripping out spinal columns. He is a terrorist in mentality as well as brutal action.
Lovely stuff ain’t it? The film will be released 20th July 2012, but Nolan has confirmed there will be a prologue which according the Nolan will be the “basically the first six, seven minutes of the film” which will give all ”an introduction to Bane, and a taste of the rest of the film.” Look for it to be shown in select IMAX theatres on December 21st.
