Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I had no doubts. Just no real excitment about it. Mostly because of real life issues distracting interest and lack of details. Now I have LOTS of exictment!

Awesome!

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Very cool trailer, but for some reason I'm just not as pumped about TDKR as I was about TDK. All of TDK's trailers got me more excited than any of TDKR's, and I don't really know why. I'm sure the movie will be fantastic, and I am looking forward to it, just not with the same enthusiasm as before. Has this happened to anyone else?

I continue to be underwhelmed. The costume designs are just bad, Bane's voice is still awful, I can't stand Anne Hathaway, and the Batwing looks about as aerodynamic as a brick.

Hmm, not bad, but there was nothing new in that trailer to be particularly blown away by IMO

How's this for a new talking point.......

The new TDKR trailer has been released.
Sold!

Things I like: most everything.

Reserving judgement: Anne Hathaway as Catwoman. Not crazy about how she looks in costume, but I'll wait and see.

I feel the same way and I'm not sure why. I still don't have the same anticipation for this as I did for Avengers and as I do for Prometheus and Spider-Man. This trailer did help get me more excited though!

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Looking forward to this movie more than any other this summer. And this trailer just increased that anticipation.

But this trailer is not a particularly good trailer. It shows hints of a lot of things I want to see, but as far as selling the movie to an audience that might not be interesting in it? Doesn't work too well. I showed it to a group of high school and college kids that I work with and it left them cold, most tuned out after the first minute.

The moneyshots, the pacing, the music, nothing was here to make this a really A+ trailer.

But the movie looks fantastic.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I'm not exactly blown away either.... and Bane's voice now sounds very dubbed...

Well that was underwhelming. Was I watching a trailer for Inception 2 or the next Batman film? The music or lack there of was a killer.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

the third trailer wasn't as good as the second. But the movie still looks awesome. Bane really looks like he's going to be one bad-ass villain, a true challenge for Batman.

"You've given them everything!"

"No I haven't...not yet."

That exchange alone defines Batman to me. The single-minded drive to do good at any, and every, cost. Very excited.

And is it just me, or does Batman seem awfully small compared to the hulking Bane? They did an excellent job making Hardy seem indestructible.

That exchange leads me to believe that Batman is going to die.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Maybe. But that was clearly included in the trailer because it's so vague it can be interpreted to mean anything.

It could be more honesty about who he is. Whatever it means, whatever he is willing to give, does not mean it will actually happen.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Oh, sure. I'm not one to jump to conclusions. Trailers can often be intentionally misleading. For all we know that was an exchange about Bruce's new child friends Timmy and Jane.

"You've given them everything!"

"No, I haven't...not yet. They still need a Wii!"
