Preview: The Dark Knight Rises - Prologue
Viewed the Prologue on a raining evening which set the mood for the less than 10 minute long viewing in anticipation that an actual advance screening would be take place but found a seat in the middle row with my girlfriend. Surprisingly there was less than 100 people in attendance.... I'm not going to spoil anything really but the story takes place 8 years after Harvey Dent dies and a new menace surfaces, Bane. If you followed the DC comics of Bane you know that he's this huge masked mammal that breaks Batman's back over his knee like a twig that puts the cape crusader to his knees in the most pain a comic can portray. The prologue introduces Dr. Palov being escorted with a couple of men with black hoods on with a CIA agent among a few mercenaries into a plane. The men are questioned about Bane and unmasked to find Bane himself which was all planned out. Previews of Catwomen, the Batwing and ending with Batman facing off with Bane. The final chapter in the Batman story. The quality of the film work was amazing and the introduction left me guessing what's going to happen next. The casting is close to perfect with Thomas Hardy as Bane and Ann Hathaway as Catwomen. I still have my slight doubts about Catwomen's portrayal but it's Christopher Nolan. This is on my number one list of most anticipated films for 2012. Just have a hunch.
