Alasdair Stuart writes for Bleeding Cool. The Dark Knight Rises press notes are out and we've had a look through them. Here are ten of the most interesting things that we found out when reading them. 1. Miranda Tate and John Blake are still distinctly suss The two characters get seven paragraphs between them and […]
Hans Zimmer once made it totally clear that he wouldn't be scoring Zack Snyder's Man of Steel. He said: John Williams, the greatest living composer – full stop. And that happens to be one of his greatest themes. So no. And I'm not thinking of rewriting Beethoven's ninth either. It just sounds like a thankless […]
A new promotion for Chris Nolan's third Batfilm is inviting members of the public to one-up Warner Bros.' marketing team and edit their own promotional trailers for the film. There's a whole website of resources, including some music stems, title cards, graphics and, best of all, some unedited footage from the film. Some of this […]
Whenever the first trailer for a big tentpole picture comes along, some nerd or another will spend an awfully long time going through it with a fine tooth comb, looking for clues. It really didn't take much combing to find one such "hint" in the first promo for The Dark Knight Rises, but it's still […]
A collection of clips from The Dark Knight Rises have been presented at Cinemacon, the Las Vegas convention for cinema exhibitors. According to pretty much everybody to share their opinion about the presentation online, the footage revealed that Chris Nolan and co. have fixed up Bane's distorted dialogue. Here's how IGN put it: Bane was […]
It's an image that raises more questions than it answers and gives one pretty honking great indicator of a moral choice Miss Kyle makes at one point.
Warner Bros. have "done an AMC" and spoiled one of their own surprises in a piece of internally-developed blurb.
he Wayne Enterprises factories are working over time to get The Dark Knight Rises merchandise ready to go and, as with Green Lantern, there are two very clear approaches being taken.
It's Batweek in the Batentertainment Batweekly, with three new Batimages cropping up online ahead of their Batspecial hitting the Batnewstands any moment. (Because the 1960s TV Batman habit of Batnaming Bateverything should never die, that's why.) I reckon these pictures are essentially crying out for unfunny captions. Where's Rich when I need him?
The Dark Knight Rises is the cover story in this week's Entertainment Weekly. Subscribers are probably receiving their copies right now, aren't they? As well as a cover shot of Christian Bale in his Sunday (night) best, there's more pics and an article inside. Chris Nolan apparently gets into conversations about – and you may […]
Without any kind of fanfare at all, tickets for The Dark Knight Rises have already gone on sale, over six months ahead of opening night. At the moment, only certain AMC cinemas across the US are selling seats, via Fandango, and only for the midnight screenings as July 19th becomes July 20th. Nonetheless, this particular […]
A good look at The Hobbit, Prometheus and The Dark Knight Rises as they duke it out on the internet.
Just to tidy up a loose end, here's an update on where we stand with the foggy Bane audio in the IMAX prologue for The Dark Knight Rises: exactly where we were when we first started. Despite original reports that the audio for the scene had already been remixed and reissued, it seems that this […]
It only took one preview of the The Dark Knight Rises' IMAX prologue for many minds to be made up. There was considerable doubt about the way Christopher Nolan and company had recorded and mixed the dialogue of Bane, who not only speaks through a mask but with an English accent...
So, why does Anne Hathaway's Catwoman wear those heels? Is it to tighten her calves, push her bottom backwards and her bosom forwards, accentuating the most notably female facets of her form? Yes, of course it is. But that's not all. This Sunday, The LA Times are to print a preview of 2012's bigger movies, […]
I had never seen any of these clips of deleted Dark Knight footage before, but I know they've done the rounds. However, I've been e-mailed the link a good dozen times in the last day or so, which makes me pretty sure lots of other folks haven't seen the video either. In that spirit, let's […]
Before we get to the more sensible claims of Easter Eggs and possible clues hidden in the marketing materials for The Dark Knight Rises, let's have a look at a couple of utterly preposterous and truly befuddling bits of conspiracy theory. Or, to put it another way, let's start by checking for hidden references to […]
On Saturday I asked: Will Christopher Nolan Have To Fix The Dark Knight Rises Prologue Before Releasing The Full Film? referring in particular to the muffled, accented voice of Tom Hardy's Bane. There was a pretty broad consensus amongst the first audiences of the 6-minute IMAX prologue for the film that some (if not all) […]
