||Action Corner|| The Dark Knight Rises

Welcome back to ACTION CORNER!!!  This time around I will be tackling a movie that is, in my eyes, the most anticipated movie of 2012!!!  The Dark Knight Rises is a 2012 super hero film and is the third and final film in director Christopher Nolan‘s Batman film series.  It is preceded by 2005’s Batman Begins and 2008’s The Dark Knight.  This new film stars Academy Award Winner Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne / The Batman, Academy Award Winner Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth, Gary Oldman as Commissioner James “Jim” Gordon, Academy Award Nominee Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle / Catwoman, Tom Hardy as Bane, Academy Award Winner Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake, and Academy Award Winner Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox.  The music in the film is being written and composed by Academy Award Winning Composer Hans Zimmer.  The story is by Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer, while the screenplay is being written by Jonathan Nolan and Christopher Nolan.  Christopher Nolan is a two-time Academy Award Nominee for Best Writing (Original Screenplay) for the films Memento and Inception.  The film is being directed by Christopher Nolan.  The Dark Knight Rises is being produced by DC Entertainment, Legendary Pictures, and Syncopy Films, and is being distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.

The Dark Knight Rises (teaser trailer)

Does a lot really need to be said about this???  It’s BATMAN!!!  I’ve heard a lot of criticism about the trailer not being enough, well for all those people out there…it is a TEASER TRAILER!!!  That’s what it’s supposed to do, tease.  And for that, I think the trailer is excellent.  The little quick cuts of Bane’s face and the shot of him from behind at the end of the trailer really get me fired up.  I’m so looking forward to this movie.  Knowing that Tom Hardy gained 28 pounds of muscle for his role in Lionsgate and Mimran Schur PicturesWarrior, to then gain even more muscle to play Bane is awesome.  I’m really looking forward to seeing this entire cast.  It really doesn’t get much better than this.  Again, this is the most anticipated film of 2012 and that honestly won’t change.  There really isn’t much to go on at this point because it’s a year away, so as more things start to pop up, I will update this special ||Action Corner||.

The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters on July 20, 2012 in 2D and IMAX!!!
