With the release date for The Dark Knight Rises closing in, the powers that be are giving out tons of new tid-bits to amp up the anticipation. Although after the news broke that the first screening inspired a standing ovation from critics, I’m not sure it’s possible to be more excited.
But while we endure the next 10 days of waiting, we can tide ourselves over with 13 minutes of new footage in this featurette from The Movie Box:
And if that’s not enough for you, there’s always Jake Hamilton’s interviews with all the big names in the cast and Christopher Nolan:
As you may have guessed considering my previous articles about the possible direction of the film, I was particularly interested in learning more about the John Blake character played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. A rookie cop under Commissioner Gordon, he’s described as a seemingly lone optimist in a city of lost hope. I like the idea the he is a reincarnation of Commissioner Gordon the younger years, but I wonder if all the speculation around his character is for naught.
We do know, however, that the ending has been a closely guarded secret and for that to be necessary, there must be something unexpected coming our way. Can July 20th get here faster please?
