If Matt and Trey can make it work, so can Nolan.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I mostly understood Bane's lines up to the point he said "crashing this plane". After that, I couldn't make heads or tails of his dialogue. It was just a garbled mess.

I've said this before but I find bits of dialogue in BB and TDK hard to understand at times too. There seems to be a common element of sound mixing issues in these movies. I really hope the studio pushes to have this addressed.

The fact that virtually every article or impression, feels the need to mention whether they did or did not understand Bane's voice, has shown they've already lost the narrative. Seriously, just make it clear, and say "hey we've fixed it for the main movie, don't worry!" - problem solved.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

It's actually quite clever. The hype is so enormous that it's pretty much guaranteed that everybody on the planet is going to see it. The only question is, how many times will we see it? If it takes multiple viewings to understand the dialog, that's the only way left to drive ticket sales.

The downside is that pirated dls will cost WB more wealth than exists in the world.

What makes you think you'll have a choice? If they can make you buy health insurance, they can make you see The Dark Knight Rises!

Nobody makes you buy health insurance. There are plenty of people that get by (for better or worse) without it.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Every now and then you might want to look at something other than the Entertainment section of the American news media.

There's this thing called the individual mandate that's got a few tongues wagging.

I didnt like Batman fighting in daylight in a crowd in the behind the scenes pics and like it even less in the trailer. Other than that I will reserve judgment and hope its better than the last one.

I've wondered about that. And...



Of course, if any of that speculation is true, then The Dark Knight Rises is going to have a lot of ground to cover in its 2-1/2 to 3 hour running time.

Guy- The mayor's going to dump him(Gordon) in the spring

Matthew Modine's character- Really? but he's a hero

If Nolan intended to have Bane's dialogue sound garbled then I trust him on it because he's yet to fuck up in my book.

That's in the trailer, which is out there in basically DVD quality.

People are specifically referring to not understanding Bane in the prologue.

It helps to have read the transcript, but even after having done so I still had trouble understanding "they expect one of us in the wreckage, brother".
