Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Christopher Nolan and more talk about The Dark Knight Rises in a new featurette
Less than two weeks, folks. That’s all we have before we can finally see THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. I know at this point the constant berating of new posters, banners, trailers, TV spots and featurettes is getting a little old, but the fact remains that America just can’t get enough of Batman and to keep us busy until July 20th, Warner Bros. is releasing everything they can without mailing Blu-rays to every fanboy in America. With that in mind, I present you with a 13 minute featurette that covers just about everything you’d want to know about THE DARK KNIGHT RISES without spoiling anything too major. I say that, but I still feel obligated to give you a minor spoiler warning because there may be something sprinkled in here that you didn’t know.
With that said, for those that are still interested in checking out the featurette, it’s pretty great as far as what it tells you and how much it shows you. If spliced together strategically, you could make a new trailer out of the new footage they show. We also get a lot of cool behind the scenes footage, which also sheds some light on plot details. I find it funny how much they’re willing to tell us about THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, which leads me to believe that a) the film is so great that it doesn’t matter what you know and b) there’s so many surprises that what we think are “spoilers” now won’t be anything when we see the final product. Two weeks from now, the world will know.
THE DARK KNIGHT RISES stars Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard and Juno Temple. This is the third and final Batman film for director Christopher Nolan and it finally opens in theaters on July 20th, 2012.
