Go Behind The Scenes In This New Dark Knight Rises Featurette

batman1 Go Behind The Scenes In This New Dark Knight Rises Featurette

If you were privy to any of the behind the scenes footage for Christopher Nolan’s Inceptionyou’re well aware the man is a genius when it comes to practical stunt-work, real-world set-pieces and an all round classical filmmaking style. Now, with the release of The Dark Knight Rises just two weeks away – my heart – Warner Bros. has released a 13-minute featurette for the upcoming superhero threequel.

This clip is a riveting collection of new footage, interviews with the principle cast members – Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Gary Oldman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Morgan Freeman – and a close-up look at set construction and the assemblage of certain action sequences.

Even if you’re one of the few folks out there who isn’t particularly excited for The Dark Knight Rises, this featurette is worth a look in particular for admirers of the cinematic process. The conception of Gotham City’s elaborate sewer system from scratch and the coordination of a “Wall Street” fight scene with thousands of extras are nothing short of incredible.

Early word is that Nolan’s conclusion to his Batman trilogy is as excellent as we were hoping and this clip should help you get jazzed up just that much more.

The Dark Knight Rises swoops into theaters July 20.

    I loved the week leading up to the massive fight scene being shot on Wall Street.  Working right there on Broad Street I literally got to see New York City turn fully into Gotham City, down to the tiniest detail like a switched lamp post design.  Really magical stuff to leave for the day and feel like you’re in the Batman universe.

    It certainly looks like a great movie. I want to see it mainly because of Tom Hardy.When they said he was terrifying,even by the look in his eyes,I believe it.Tom is one of the most AMAZING actors I have ever seen.Yes,he is good looking too,but it isnt that.He is just the best at creating massive characters out of what could have been only an ok character in someone else’s hands. Even his press photos look scary,just as himself. I love watching his act,and I am sure he’ll bring an immense power to the film.Going to see it tonite,..

    ps,..if I were to pick which one of the actors themselves would win a fight,it would have to be Tom Hardy.Hands Down.He’s all power,and has no limits,in real life.Although Christian is one spooky dude!
