The Dark Knight Rises continues its viral marketing campaign with the release of three pages from The Gotham Observer and it’s all about Harvey Dent!
The fictional paper reads: “Many hold the masked vigilante responsible for Dent’s death,” reads the article, “though authorities have never announced their efforts to make an arrest. While Batman still tops the Gotham City Police most-wanted list and the case remains open, little is known and there have been no recent developments.”
Batman is clearly the anti hero still with a Rogues football tournament and day at Wayne Manor planned- I think we know what’s going to happen here. Events at Wayne Manor never tend to go as planned.
With mentions to Anne Hathaway’s character Cat Woman committing burglaries and links to Rykin Data, who knows who else is out to get The Batman.
The Dark Knight Rises opens in the UK on 20 July 2012.
If you need a Bane action figure in your life (as much as we do!) then don’t worry, Hot Toys have said today,
‘The Dark Knight Rises movie will be coming this Summer and this Bane Collectible Figure will be announced in coming months before movie launches! Batman fans, please stay tuned!’
We don’t need a reason to even think about buying one of these. It’s Bane after all.
We got the trailer and prologue all in one week (I mean Nolan was pretty generous just before Christmas) and it isn’t stopping there.
The one small issue/ doubt/ niggle was one I’m sure lots of people commented on and that was the sound quality of Bane’s voice. Warners commented that, Chris Nolan wanted “the audience to catch up and participate rather than push everything at them. He doesn’t dumb things down” and so we thought things would be left as they were.
But, as much as we loved the slightly romantic yet deeply unsettling nature of his voice, we are pleased to announce that Nolan has sent out a new audio mix to IMAX theatres in which Bane’s dialogue is far easier to understand according to Collider, who have also reported that background noise was adjusted to make Hardy’s voice that little bit easier to understand.
We just hope he doesn’t lose his mystery, well if it’s possible with such a mask on!?
AND we still cannot wait until the UK release on 20 July 2012!
