The Dark Knight Rises IMAX TV spot promises to destroy Gotham, plus a few new pics

Jul. 6, 2012by: Paul Shirey

I've heard many people complain about movies being shown in IMAX that don't belong there (i.e. weren't shot with IMAX cameras) and I tend to agree, although seeing even an upconverted pic in IMAX still trumps the smaller screens for my money. That said, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES will feature more than an hour's worth of IMAX shot footage (THE DARK KNIGHT featured 28 minutes of the same), which makes the IMAX experience for the film that much more enticing. I'm sure once they are able to make the IMAX cameras a little smaller and easier to use then we'll start seeing full-on features shot in the format, but until then, I'll gladly take a full hour of a big-budget epic to keep me satiated.

Check out the IMAX spot:

And here's a few new pics:

The final installment of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, opens in traditional and IMAX screens on July 20, 2012 (that's two weeks to the day!)

Well, the only movie I saw in real film IMAX was V for Vendetta and it was incredible. After that I've seen a couple of digiMAX movies and the comparison between them leaves the digital IMAX in the dust. That said I got a 4 hour drive and who knows how long of a wait in line for me coming in only 12 days because I had to pony up and get some real IMAX midnight screening tickets. I'm sure I won't be disappointed on any level.

Anne Hathaway looks gorgeous in that photo. With that Gotham City backdrop, it truly feels like Catwoman,

I'll probably eat my following words upon viewing TDKR, but every time I see Hathaway in that outfit I just can't help but cringe. She just really doesn't look in sync with the rest of Nolan's Gotham.

I've always thought the outfit was fine, but had initial reservations about her hair and the cat ears, but I'm warming up to it. Her ass looks so good in the suit itself though, I don't see what's not to like ;).

Anyone else think it's awesome that Chris Nolan ALWAYS wears a suit, even when directing. That's a classy move and I like it.

Anyone else?

Anyone else think that Marion Cotillard would have been interesting as Catwoman? Not that Anne Hathaway won't be great, but Marion looks like she'd be a bit better for the part.

That is the best picture of Catwoman, perfect mysterious view with the Gotham City backdrop. Who cares who is better between her and Michelle, because this will put the 2004 CINO far in the rearview mirror.
