The Dark Knight Rises Prologue was a short, but satisfying teaser to the epic conclusion to “The Dark Knight legend” that will be unleashed to the world next summer. I don’t think anything I can type can describe the feeling of watching this footage screened on a gigantic IMAX screen in true 70mm film. This is the ultimate and unique way to experience The Dark Knight Rises.
As for the actual footage… no, I will not spoil anything; there are plenty of other sites & blogs that will be more than happy to transcribe everything their eyeballs saw up there. I will say that the images screened are visually stunning. The characters we are introduced to are intriguing. One character in particular had a gruff-sounding voice; which has many people complaining about it. The film just entered post-production, and the final audio mix will be finished within the coming months —so it’s nothing to get worked-up over.
Once again, the footage previewed is not representative of a finished, polished feature film. It was meant to make you excited for a major motion picture event which has been over 70 years in the making. We didn’t need it, it was given to us. WB did us a solid. I cannot wait to see this movie.
The Dark Knight Rises, the final installment in Chris Nolan’s 21st century Batman film series, will be released to movie theaters and IMAX screens on July 20, 2012.
