The Dark Knight Rises with some new images and info from the cast and crew

3 years agoby:

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES camp has been quiet of late, save for the expected rating announcement, so here are a few bits to help generate that hype buzz you've been missing (or haven't). 

First up is the cover to the Summer Movie Preview issue of EW, which features Christian Bale's Batman and Anne Hathaway's Catwoman. 

Director Christopher Nolan shared some info with the magazine, but was hesitant to say too much. "What can I not tell you about my film?" he said.  Nolan did comment on Bane, the primary villain of the film, saying, "he represents formidable physical strength, combined with absolute evil of intention."

Actor Tom Hardy, who portrays the hulked-out bad guy commented on the muffled voice brute, saying, “It’s a risk, because we could be laughed at — or it could be very fresh and exciting."

Hardy attributes Bane's voice to the "comic book character's brains and Caribbean heritage," saying, “The audience mustn’t be too concerned about the mumbly voice.  As the film progresses, I think you’ll be able to tune to its setting.”

Anne Hathaway is Catwoman/Selina Kyle and Nolan views her as a different incarnation than has been seen before, like a "shifty cipher, calloused survivor, and world-class criminal."

“She has a very strong way of protecting herself and those she cares about, which implies an underlying darkness,”  said Nolan.

“I had to physically transform,” said Hathaway, "Chris sat me down at the beginning and said, ‘Joseph Gordon-Levitt did all of his own fighting in INCEPTION. That one zero-gravity fight? He trained for two months.’ I basically left his office and went to the gym and just came out about five minutes ago.”

Lastly, we have a hi-res promotional shot of Catwoman, featuring mostly the B-side.  I know there are a lot of fans up in arms over her appearance, due largely to her not looking exactly like her comic counterpart.  While I agree it would've been cool to see the goggled version, I'm game for Nolan's vision.  He's never been a traditionalist, yet has been able to revolutionize the Bat-universe, while still remaining true to it.  I feel like we're in good hands.

And, also, Anne Hathaway is pretty damn hot in my book. 

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES on July 20, 2012.

 

 

Extra Tidbit: I am already rolling my eyes at the people who will complain about not being able to understand what Bane is saying. Half of them will be checking their Facebook notifications or chit-chatting through the "slow" parts of the movie anyway.

Damn I am excited for this movie. It has kinda cooled down with all the Prometheus and Avengers stuff, but damn I can't wait for this.

I've been saying from the beginning Hathaway was the wrong for this and I'll stick by that. She's OK looking-and that's being generous. To me, she just doesn't fit in and she on the border of looking ridiculous in that costume. Seriously, who's kicking ass in heals??!!

Anne Hathaway Is Soooooo...

.. Unattractive. In any case, I like Chris Nolan but he doesn't choose his leading ladies very well lately. Katie Holmes and Maggie Gyllenhaal in the previous Batman films and Ellen Paige in Inception were just miscast. I'm tentatively adding Anne Hathaway as Catwoman till I see the film. But I am not holding my breath that she'll be removed from the list.

So far Anne Hathaway and Catwoman have been the least interesting part about this film. I think there is a bigger role or story for her in this movie than Nolan is giving us or is at least hinting at. Because right now it just seems like she is just "filler" when compared to Bane, but I am thinking she is going to be a bigger character in this film than we all think.

Nice suit. Not sure about the headgear, reminds me a bit of cheesy Poison Ivy.
Most of all I wish they had cast somebody as mean as Gina Carrano and as sexy as Newmar...

Oh Wow......

Anne Hathaway is looking good in that Catwoman suit. I'm most excited about seeing her in the film than anyone else.

Jesus Christ. Anne Hathaway never looked so beautiful. Gorgeous. She has the most striking hair, too! Love the outfit. This PG-13 sensuality thingamajig better bring in the goods.

P.S. Less than 100 days!

Love the actress, don't really like the boots, don't like the lack of cowl, love everything in-between.

The Julie Newmar look was great for the show but that was a different tone and it didn't matter that we could recognize her. It also reminds me a bit of Uma Thurman's Poison Ivy costume with a different color scheme, another look meant for a different tone. I just don't think that costume fits particularly well for Nolan's universe.

So they went with Julie Newmar

I kinda dig that...I mean I did like how Jim Lee redid her look in Hush to look more 'realistic yet sexy', but that's the classic look from the 60s updated right there...and the one MOST people are familiar with (purple suit? that grey one piece from Year One? Purple suit ala long halloween? All black? Black with goggles? Hush version? Julie Newmar SCHWING!)...

Also doesn't look like Widow's costume from the Avengers...just hoping they go with the reformed hooker/possible daughter of the

Also doesn't look like Widow's costume from the Avengers...just hoping they go with the reformed hooker/possible daughter of the Roman combo from Year One and Long Halloween...imo, the two best incarnations of the character in her history....and done 'edgey' before it was just a hook to sell shit.

I am pretty sure her "ears" flip down and are goggles (probably night vision). With those flipped down she may look more like the modern Catwoman comics, but I for one dig the retro Julie Newmar look to the suit and ears. Simple and sexy.

I saw the prologue attached to the IMAX Mission Impossible 4.
The voice wasn't that bad if you are actually paying attention. The only problem was the unusually loud background noise that won't be present throughout the movie.
So I have little sympathy for people who had a hard time with it.
I hope it encourages people to shut up and listen closely.
