The Dark Knight Rises - Page 2

post #31 of 1595
85% of dialogue is ADR anyway...
70mm then? Or are those as heavy and loud as well?

Nolan was most eager to talk about the fact that Warner Bros. had agreed with his argument that the film should resist the current 3-D craze and instead use high-definition approaches and IMAX cameras to strike out on a different cinematic path than the stereoscopic technology that, for better or worse, has become the dominant conversation in the blockbuster sector.

That would spectacular

No. The real question is how long will Nolan hold out on 3D, choosing to use quality directing, writing, and picking the right take over using trickery and gimmicks to hide a crappy live action feature.

Not looking to start a fight at all, 'cause I really don't care about 3D that much, but who says you can't have both? I would think a guy as technically proficient as Nolan, and a gifted story teller obviously, would be the perfect guy to mesh the two (excellent film and 3D that is).

Cameron obviously had the technical-side down, but most here agree the story was a little weak/recycled. Nolan, on the other-hand, is probably more in the zone (or in his prime).

Like I said, not trying to start anything at all. I'm actually excited at the possibility of the 3rd Batman movie being almost entirely in IMAX/70mm. More so than I would be were it in 3D.

3D is fine by me as long as the story comes first and I don't have to wear glasses.

LOL - that type of 3D doesn't exisit yet.

Nolan did talk before about The Dark Knight referring in some ways to Harvey Dent. It isn't out of the realm of possibility that Two-Face returns.

We'll use many of the same characters [in the Dark Knight Rises] as we have all along, and we'll be introducing some new ones, Nolan said cryptically. I had an odd thought: What if Nolan somehow brings back Harvey Dent? The only reason I even mention it is because, back during post-production on the second film, Nolan told me that the title The Dark Knight was just as much about Dent and his fall from the status of shining-knight civic crusader.

Interesting note on the loudness of IMAX cameras. I had no idea, but had read two things about Nolan: first, he likes to capture dialog "live," and second, he wants to shoot this third Batman movie in all IMAX. Wonder how he'll trade those off?
post #40 of 1595
Hopefully `Rises' has to do with the Bane storyline...This would easily be the best route in the maturization of this trilogy. Course that' just my opinion.

LOL - that's a 21" TV that is 720P and has severe restrictions as to head placement and eye distance from the display

21" - that's a bit small isn't it?

What he wants to do and what WB will let him do are two different things.

Ya gotta start somewhere.

So, I would be interested in shooting a whole film in IMAX. The big hurdle to doing that is um, it's very, very hard to see how you do dialogue scenes, because the cameras are so noisy. And the lenses are so wide, you're shooting this conversation, the cameras go you know, 18 inches from your nose, basically, and it sounds like one of those small portable generators. That's about the level of volume of it. So to just speak over that and to act as if that's not there is very tough.

Live sound recording or no, you try delivering a quiet dialogue scene with a chainsaw blaring less than a foot from your head.

I can't really think of anyone as a major villain that fits in with the Dark Knight movies, Zsasz maybe? Bane?
post #46 of 1595
Well, they could always have Joker fall into a vat of chemicals. It distorts his face into...another actor! (Gordon-Levitt perhaps?)
post #47 of 1595
as the title suggests, I have a feeling this third chapter in Nolan's Batman world won't be focusing on the villain specifically. The Dark Knight did that already, and unfortunately *the* villain won't be back. I think it will be mostly about Batman/Bruce redeeming himself; the villain, no matter who it's gonna be, won't be the central piece. Until Nolan and his team prove me wrong of course

I could live with that but as great as JGL is the performance would not be the same. I'd like to see Harvey Dent come back.

I think I'd much rather see this happen.

THAT would be great! Since the Tim Burton film, it has always bothered me that the films were more about the villain and less about Batman/Bruce Wayne. So I hope you are right.

I say create a totally new villain as it would give more freedom to the writers and director, than one that has been scripted.

It's time to bring back King Tut.
post #52 of 1595
In seeing how the Joker was reinvented, could an inventive mind (there may still be some in HW) figure a way to make the Penquin be less of a joke? I actually thought Devito made the character interesting with his biting off fish heads. I didn't care for most the rest of the movie and I'm in no way saying that would be how to represent the character, just that we had no idea the Joker could br made so interesting until the last movie.
As to examining Bruce Wayne, most of Batman Returns was dedicated to that and done pretty well. His redeeming could be incorporated into the story line as easily as his darkening was.

How about Crazy Quilt? (I think it's time you stopped watching Brave and the Bold on CN )

The more I think about it, the more I think Bane would be a good fit. They can use the story of how the Venom drug gets on the streets, and Bats can trace it to South America. Bane can break his back like he did in the comics, and then we can watch him convalesce and come back to beat him.

Agree the Bane storyline in the Nolans' hands woul be the only storyline that could follow this one. A Drama Comic instead of popcorned mindlessness like other comic flicks!

Those cameras are frakkin' huge (w/ a much bigger frame area); not to mention 35mm cams can be somewhat noisy.

Gotta be better than the Schumacher version of Bane was.

To be honest I totally forgot he even did one. I probably erased it from my memory.

Consider yourself lucky. I have scars on my brain that will never leave me.

"Shadow of the Bat" was indeed a Batman comic book.

Still trying to recall Bane in either pukefest Shoo-movies!

The only good thing that happened in either of his two films was the Batmobile going up the wall..which BEGS the question...IF he is escaping shouldn't the bad guys wait for the BM to drop back down!?!?
