After sitting through about a week of bootlegged cam versions of this we now have an official release of the full length trailer for The Dark Knight Rises. I’m continually blown away by Christopher Nolan’s work as a director. He has reached a level of perfection in his work that few directors have even come close to and I expect TDKR to be his best film so far.
Things that stand out to me in this trailer are Bane’s voice. It seems eerily similar to the strained growl of Bale’ Batman voice. No coincidence there I’m sure. Next is Cat Woman and her parallel to the OWS in her mini monologue. There was a lot of talk during the New York stage of production that they would mirror the Wall Street protest and it looks like she is right in the middle of it. Third is the quick shot of Joseph Gordon Levitt. I’m curious what role he will play in this film as rumors have had him playing everything from Robin to Night Wing to a new version of the Joker. All will be revealed when it hits theaters next year. I can’t wait!
Still refusing to let any details slip about his role as John Blake in The Dark Knight Rises, the actor has instead praised Christopher Nolan’s directing and storytelling, promising that fans are in for a treat… So far, all we know about Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s character in The Dark Knight Rises is that he’s a police officer, with any additional details we know of having come from what we’ve spotted in the various set photos and videos. (all of which have only served to make him all the more mysterious) So, when USA Today caught up with him in Toronto recently, what could he reveal about his role in the movie? “”Nothing,” he said.
Oh. Thankfully, he did go on to describe Christopher Nolan’s style of directing and storytelling, praising him and promising fans that all they need to do is have faith in him to deliver an amazing movie. “I can tell you that one of the things I admire most about Mr. Nolan is that he understands that the story begins before the movie does. He’s already telling the story that he’s got cooked up. He’s a master storyteller. Every little bit of information he lets out, he does it at the proper time.”
“Far be it for me to preempt the rhythm of his. I love that people are excited about it. I guarantee, as an audience member, one will have the best experience if one just trusts him,” he added.
