Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I really like the Catwoman costume. It's fits into Nolan's more realistic universe, but at the same time it's still recognizably Catwoman. I think the goggles as ears thing is a really good idea.

I love this picture. She's cute and has a bit of a vulnerable side showing.

Very Julie Newmar. I approve.
Agreed. Newmar was clearly the inspiration for this look, with logical updates to fit within Nolan's universe. Love the pull-down goggles too, very practical.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I've got two things to say about that second news story:
1) Anne Hathaway is THE AWESOME for knowing who Harley Quinn is and trying to bring her to life
2) Nolan once again proves how great he is by recognizing Anne as the best fit for one character based on her attempt to channel another

Shouldn't we getting a new trailer soon? Or is it just me feeling that the two trailers we've seen were underwhelming?

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

We can probably expect a third trailer sometime in May. Some thoughts have been that it could be attached with "Avengers" but the more likely movie is "Dark Shadows" which is a Warner Bros produced film.

^ It will be curious for those of us of a certain age to see a Batman film featuring Catwoman being advertised before a Tim Burton movie, which co-stars Michelle Pfeiffer.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Indeed so. I thought about that...but don't see why they wouldn't attach it with "Dark Shadows". Marvel and DC have advertised each others films in various of their comics...so it is possible that a trailer could be attached with "Avengers". That seems a little early to me (yeah I know, there are a lot of people impatient with the marketing campaign...but the Nolan has a plan).

^ Oh, there's no reason not to attach it - indeed, I would have thought that the two movies will appeal to a broadly similar audience. It's just a funny little coincidence is all.

It's funny you say that. The trailers show interesting things happening I guess, but they really don't get me too pumped to see the film. they are a bit lazy....

This, exactly. I'm getting more pumped by the behind the scenes leakes we've been getting then from the trailers really.

It may be early, but it's the same thing they did with The Dark Knight, whose second trailer was attached to Iron Man. And so far, they have kept pretty close to the marketing of the last film (teaser in the summer, first trailer + prologue in Decembre). Plus: definitely more people will see the trailer if it's with The Avengers than with Dark Shadows.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

http://insidemovies.ew.com/2012/04/1...ce-its-a-risk/

To play Bane, a willfully evil and possibly unstoppable force of mind and might, the British actor wanted to develop a distinctive voice, one that evoked (albeit elliptically) the comic book character’s erudition and ethnic heritage (Bane hails from a fictional Caribbean country). Hardy sought a sound befitting a man steeped in malevolence and old soul wisdom and who could trace his roots to ancient Latin culture. “There were two doors we could walk through,” says Hardy. “We could play a very straightforward villain or we could go through this very quirky door, which is totally justified by the text but may seem very, very stupid.” Not surprisingly, Hardy decided to go for the second option. “It’s a risk, because we could be laughed at—or it could be very fresh and exciting,” he says. While some found his dialogue incomprehensible in the IMAX-exclusive sneak peek attached to Mission: Impossible—Ghost Protocol last December, the actor asks for patience. “The audience mustn’t be too concerned about the mumbly voice,” says Hardy. “As the film progresses, I think you’ll be able to tune to its setting.”
Bane’s motivation as a villain remains one of Rises’ best-kept secrets—although the trailers suggest his master plan requires the razing of Gotham and the death of Bruce Wayne. Does Bane represent a specific political or philosophical complaint? The answer is… maybe. “I think the politics of the film are going to be hotly debated one way or another, as they were in the last film,” says Nolan. Listening to Hardy compare Bane to the scarred, clown-faced villain who terrorized Gotham City in The Dark Knight, you almost get the feeling of a revolutionary usurper with tremendous resources. “The Joker didn’t care—he just wanted to see the world burn, and he was a master of chaos and destruction, unscrupulous and crazy. Bane is not that guy,” says Hardy.“There is a very meticulous and calculated way about Bane. There is a huge orchestration of organization to his ambition. He is also a physical threat to Batman. There is nothing vague about Bane. No jokes. He’s a very clean, clear villain.”
