I used to clean offices at a cheese factory. My employer was an outside contractor. We all had to sign confidentiality agreements. That we would not reveal intellectual property we heard or saw to outsiders.That was actuallyl more limiting than than this situation. They eventually are allowed to reveal what they saw. This is common and no big deal.
LOL, am I seriously the only one who sees the difference between reviewing a finished product and releasing internal information?
Actually, at this point, the story and contents of The Dark Knight Rises would be considered internal information for WB. Until a movie is released the only people that are supposed to know what exactly happens in it are the studio and the handful of people they allow to see it, or know the story. So if you reveal information about the movie before it's released, you would be releasing privileged internal information from the studio.

Violating their independence, LOL, that's absurd. They are not told what they have to write, they are free to BBQ the movie in the most scathing terms if they want to.
No they aren't free to write what they want. They are specifically instructed to omit certain items. Your misunderstanding is equivalent to saying that government censorship isn't a violation of free speech if they just require that the articles omit any mention of certain facts.
Actually they are free to write whatever they want. If they want to they can rip the movie to shreds, they just aren't allowed to publish the review, good or bad, until the studio says so.

Good choice. The only thing their employees are able to watch in the break rooms is Fox News. I can tell you that is influencing some of their workers beliefs. It likely the main source of political info they get.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

For those "concerned" about the lack of reviews...Warner Bros has lifted the embargo and we have two critics tv spots to start off the week.

http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=92569

Reviews are popping up all over the place now. IGN's.

http://ca.ign.com/articles/2012/07/1...t-rises-review

I'd suggest avoiding the Hollywood Reporter one since it contains a lot of spoilers.

I assume you've read one of these confidentiality agreements then, or can provide a link to an article documenting these restrictions that film critics must follow? I've never heard anything along these lines from professional film critics, and I would be surprised if they existed.

But it would certainly be intriguing if your claim was true, and I'd be interested in reading more about it if you can find something backing it up.

On the subject of corruption among film reviewers, if it were as bad as you suggest, why would Sony go to the effort to invent an imaginary film critic? Wouldn't influencing actual film critics just be easier?

One of my friends is going to a 5AM showing and then the one straight after at 8:45AM.

I was going to try and see it on Friday, but I'm going with a few friends so looks like I'll have to wait until Saturday night. I saw Empire gave it 5 stars, but I'm trying to avoid all reviews and spoilers, Friday and Saturday are going to be hard to get though.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

From what I've read there seems to be almost universal praise for TDKR. From that I guardedly expect the film to be good if not excellent. A big takeaway from most is the sense that this film is on.a different level than the Marvel based movies, the feeling Nolan has aimed for something more than summer blockbuster escapism while still delivering it.

If so then Bravo!

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I need to enforce my own personal embargo on reviews. I started reading one linked from Twitter this morning and instead of reviewing the themes or ideas of the movie, the author began recounting the plot, scene by scene. I closed it. I want to let the movie unfold on the screen rather than know everything in advance.

I have read some of the reviews and that is the consensus. While the Avengers is good mindless fun, TDKR is on an entire different level. I think Nolan is raising the bar once again for superhero movies. You can have great action with a deep and engaging story.

Great as the Nolan films may be in many ways, I wouldn't call the action in them great. It was just ok.
Maybe TDKR will be better in that department.
