It would be funny if they did a viral comedy piece akin to the cafe scenes of How It Should Have Ended.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Warner Bros. has issued an official press release announcing the commencement of production on The Dark Knight Rises.

PRODUCTION BEGINS ON "THE DARK KNIGHT RISES"

Filming will take place on three continents, with an all-star cast working under the direction of Christopher Nolan.

BURBANK, CA, May 19, 2011 – Principal photography has begun on Warner Bros. Pictures' and Legendary Pictures' "The Dark Knight Rises," the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy.

Leading an all-star international cast, Oscar® winner Christian Bale ("The Fighter") again plays the dual role of Bruce Wayne/Batman.

The film also stars Anne Hathaway, as Selina Kyle; Tom Hardy, as Bane; Oscar® winner Marion Cotillard ("La Vie en Rose"), as Miranda Tate; and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, as John Blake.

Returning to the main cast, Oscar® winner Michael Caine ("The Cider House Rules") plays Alfred; Gary Oldman is Commissioner Gordon; and Oscar® winner Morgan Freeman ("Million Dollar Baby") reprises the role of Lucius Fox.


In helming "The Dark Knight Rises," Christopher Nolan is utilizing IMAX® cameras even more extensively than he did on "The Dark Knight," which had marked the first time ever that a major feature film was partially shot with IMAX® cameras. The results were so spectacular that the director wanted to expand the use of the large-format cameras for this film.

The screenplay for "The Dark Knight Rises" is written by Christopher Nolan and Jonathan Nolan, story by Christopher Nolan & David S. Goyer. The film is being produced by Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Charles Roven, who previously teamed on "Batman Begins" and the record-breaking blockbuster "The Dark Knight." The executive producers are Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Kevin De La Noy and Thomas Tull, with Jordan Goldberg serving as co-producer. "The Dark Knight" is based upon characters appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. Batman was created by Bob Kane.

Behind the scenes, "The Dark Knight Rises" reunites the director with several of his longtime collaborators, all of whom worked together on the "The Dark Knight." The creative team includes director of photography Wally Pfister, who recently won an Oscar® for his work on Nolan's "Inception"; production designer Nathan Crowley; editor Lee Smith; and Oscar®-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming ("Topsy-Turvy"). In addition, Paul Franklin and Chris Corbould, who both won Oscars® for the effects in "Inception," will supervise the visual and special effects, respectively. The music will be composed by Oscar® winner Hans Zimmer ("The Lion King").

The locations for "The Dark Knight Rises" span three continents and include the American cities of Pittsburgh, New York and Los Angeles, as well as sites in India, England and Scotland.

"The Dark Knight Rises" is a presentation of Warner Bros. Pictures, in association with Legendary Pictures. Slated for release on July 20, 2012, the film will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.


I'm a little worried that James Newton-Howard, who co-composed the scores for the previous two Batman movies with Hans Zimmer, was not listed on the press release but hopefully he will once again co-compose the score with Zimmer.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

There's some kind of interesting activity on the Dark Knight Rises webpage already!

It sounds like a group of people chanting. I wouldn't be shocked if this was identified as Arabic and connected to Ra's

That's... pretty badass. I wonder what "The Fire Rises" means.

No, a spectrogram analysis of the audio file revealed the hashtag. All that was needed was to pop the file into Adobe Audition or whatever and run the filter.

Oh.

I thought they had to pulse an inverse tachyon stream into a reverse modulation of the biomimetic gel packs.

There was also a reversal of the polarity of the neutron flow involved.

I got that off the article, but still, the fact that it was an Easter egg is pretty cool. Did they cross the streams? Coz Egon says not to.

Bah I just realized you guys were referencing trek and not ghostbusters. Silly me.
