Christian Bale and Anne Hathaway in the first set video from The Dark Knight Rises
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
You gotta love those Brits. They do a great job of snapping set photos and videos of high profile films and posting them on the internet. In fact, it’s a little frustrating that everyone in LA has a camera and yet we don’t really get that many pics and videos from LA shoots. But anyway, the first footage from THE DARK KNIGHT RISES is now online and it features a plainclothes Batman (Christian Bale) and Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) having a discussion, probably commenting on the annoying people across the street taking pictures of them. This particular scene is taking place in Nottingham, England, the real home of Wayne Manor. And no, it doesn’t tell us anything and it’s not that great of quality, but it’s all we have right now.
I think at this point director Christopher Nolan should just push up the release date to December. Stuff like this is going to be leaked on the web for the next year and he might as well beat the rush. Plus, releasing the film in December gives him the chance to beat the all time box office record. Remember; AVATAR and TITANIC both had December release dates. As it is, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES opens everywhere on July 20th, 2012.
