As we predicted, all worries of Tom Hardy’s Bane being hard to hear when ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ hits theaters in July have been quelled. The five minute reel at CinemaCon looked and sounded absolutely gorgeous as we knew Christopher Nolan would make sure of.
Audiences are going to be blown away even more when Chris Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ hits in July as he’s topped himself once again with the final Batman film in his trilogy. It will also make everyone sad to see the Bat go away and wish more films could look this amazing. At CinemaCon, a five minute reel was unleashed that had footage no one had seen before, and it just blew us and everyone else away. As you’ve heard, the same can’t be said for Peter Jackson’s ‘The Hobbit‘, but when you see anything after the Nolan spectacle, it’s hard to enjoy it as much. If you remember seeing Christian Bale’s Batman on that vertigo inducing building in ‘The Dark Knight‘, well a new shot of the man on top of another building will just absolutely blow you away. IMAX does change everything!
As with most ‘hottest parts’ footage, the dialogue was kept to a minimum and showed off a lot of action in Gotham city, the Bat Cave and one scene that looked like Catwoman may be helping out our Batman which wouldn’t be such a surprise. It more than likely will have Catwoman working with Bane until he disrespects her and drives her into the wings of Batman. Everyone in the room was so anxious and leaning forward when Bane came on screen just waiting for him to speak, and his audio sounds great! You’ll understand him no problem, and he still keeps that raspyish/muffly tone which suits that Tom Hardy so well.
