Hmm...you thread regulars are slacking!

Will the lurkers be forced to find snippets of info as we get closer to the 20th!?

Apparently some lucky critics got to screen it and gave it a standing ovation.

EDIT: Ninjaed by Griever!

TDKR has screened for about 50 critics and advance reactions are leaking out:

(Some very mild spoilers).

Of note is this:

The Dark Knight Rises has just finished screening for the press and critics, receiving a STANDING OVATION!!! – Lauren Hiestand
And this:



I'm psyched. Bring on July 20th!

Ditto! I may have to set the groundwork on Monday the 15th to call in to work on the night of the 19th since I'm not yet able to take time off work...

Feel like it's a good time to bring this up again.

Didn't get to have a conversation with him, but it still boggles my mind that I somehow had the chance to personally meet one of the best directors of our generation. His name will be handed down like the greats before him and I can always tell people I had the privilege to meet him.

And I oughta print and frame this son of a ***** on my wall.

I'm so psyched for this that I'm not watching trailers or reading anything about it lol... other than the odd TV commercial I'm going in cold. Just want to experience it.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

With everything thats been spilled so far I think we have the (very) broad strokes of it except for the ending. I'm hoping we haven't seen the best stuff in the trailers which, if so, makes me rather giddy anticipating what we haven't seen yet.

If it delivers (which seems likely) then it'll be the best overall live-action take to date on a superhero across a number of films in the same continuity. It'll set a new bar with this kind of serious minded approach to the superhero genre. Seriously I don't see how Man Of Steel could be on this level, but we'll see.

And as much fun as The Avengers was it just isn't in the same arena as Nolan's Batman trilogy. That isn't say other superhero films aren't good and enjoyable in their own right, but Nolan has just really elevated the game.

I agree. If TDKR is on the same level of quality as the previous two, Nolan's trilogy will be seen for a long time as THE standard by which comic book movies are judged.

Nah, I don't know. It's Batman, a very different comic book hero. The tone and feel of the Nolan Batman movies work for Batman, but only for Batman.

Frankly if we're picking a comic book movie standard, I'd much rather go with The Avengers over Nolan's Batman movies.

They're two different animals. Nolan has taken his trilogy beyond the usual scope of comic book superheroes. Avengers is good and entertaining, but it doesn't have the same dramatic heft.

And while this trolgy has a similar feel to Frank Millers take on Batman it avoids the characterization of Batman as obsessed borderline psychotic.
