Meh - what a spectacularly unimpressive trailer/teaser. No money shot (and iffy effects in the only pseudo money shot - the football field). Bane is hard to understand. Yet people all over the Internet (and here) are falling over themselves to praise it. What gives? It seems like Nolan can put out whatever trailer he wants, slap on a "dark knight" label on it, and people will declare it to be sublime. Ridiculous.
This.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Eh, I thought the trailer was great. Did exactly what I hoped it would: teased me, leaving me wanting more.

My only gripe with the teaser trailer was the poorly rendered text they used. And yeah the CGI on the sinking football field was pretty bad as well. All in all I'm still pretty stoked for this film!

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I just happened to think both were pretty amazing. It is reasonable to say that the special effects for the field were shoddy looking considering Nolan himself has stated they just completed filming and i think he said he hasn't had a chance to work on too much since he's been focused on getting the prologue out.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Again, why rush to have a promo if it gives off a shaky vibe?
Not only is Bane hard to understand, if at all, but unfinished f/x?

I know it's Nolan and I hear fanboys excusing this but if it were Michael Bay the same people (maybe not here) would be ripping Bay a new one for releasing a subpar teaser. I'd love to hear Joe Q Public's take on this. What impression are they getting?

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

The impression so far has been overwhelmingly positive if you've been reading the reviews and reactions. You read one or two negative reviews here and go with that take? The minor problems stated are entirely fixable and no doubt will be.

The film is six months away. Do you expect the film to have completed special effects in that time? Regardless, I thought the special effects in the football stadium scene looked great. I'm sure they will look even better come July 20th.

"Subpar teaser" being your opinion. I've seen the prologue twice now, and every time people are cheering and clapping. I haven't seen the trailer in a theater yet - and I plan to soon - but nearly every bootleg I've seen has people in the theater clapping, cheering and clearly very excited. I think my favorite reaction has been a huge round of applause followed by someone shouting out "THANK YOU, NOLAN!" Clearly people have been enthralled by what they have seen from the prologue and trailer.

I'm not sure if this prologue is better than The Dark Knight's, but I loved how

I think that was very intentional. And I love it, too.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Also, the HD version of the trailer should come online in about 30 minutes. I'm gonna try and see if I can spot myself in the football stadium scene.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

First why wasn't there a separate thread for the trailer. I feel like a complete doofus for starting one.

Second, Am I in the minority for not liking the trailer. Michael Caine sounds really tired of saying the "You are a unique snowflake" speech he does in the past two movie. Ann Hathaway sounds awful. Like she's just phoning it in and reading her lines (why is Catwoman even in this?) and Bane. All he does is walk around (I guess the prologue will establish his character). And yes we see the flying Batmobile but it looks so fake. You can tell that it's suspended from wires.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Why would there be a separate thread for the trailer? This is the anticipation (news) thread and you posted a link to the leaked trailer in that other thread which I believe is against board rules.

I think it would just make sense since some people might just want to talk about the trailer in order to reduce spoilers or speculate on certain scenes. This thread covers EVERYTHING with TDKR (including the prologue) and you can get lost in a hurry and 170+ pages seems a little daunting.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Fair enough...and logical but we have been discussing somewhat the trailer and prologue for the last couple of pages. Lots of people obviously haven't seen them yet.
