The conclusion of Christopher Nolan’s telling of the Dark Knight is right around a very dark corner! Even with numerous promising blockbusters lined up before Batman’s July 20th release date, “The Dark Knight Rises” still holds the majority of my attention! Granted I am a total comic fan, but Christopher Nolan’s team does something that very few movie makers are capable of doing these days… keep a secret! With so little details being leaked from Nolan’s classified camp, when they finally do decide to release a trailer, it gives this nerd chills!
This story takes places approximately 10 years after where “The Dark Knight” left off, and introduces what I consider to be Batman’s greatest challenge!
Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, and Gary Oldman are all back to finish the story with some new faces included. Anne Hathaway will be playing Selina Kyle, more commonly known as Catwoman (Sweet, Anne Hathaway in black latex!). Tom Hardy will be the super-villain Bane, a criminally insane genius with Venom fueled super strength. Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotillard have also joined director Christopher Nolan’s Bat-family.
The third and final chapter of this tale may not conclude with a happy ending for Batman, but that doesn’t mean that Gotham won’t see peace after this finale takes a bow and drops the curtain!
Nolan’s Batman Franchise has grossed over $1,374,631,840 with it’s first two films. “The Dark Knight” alone produced over one billion dollars and broke box office records… that’s billion with B!
Will “The Dark Knight Rises” be this summers highest grossing movie? Will it break the $1 Billion mark again?!
