  • Batman fans rejoice! during the production of The Dark Knight Rises, the next and final Batman film in Christopher Nolan's grand finale trilogy, has seen a lot of public press. And fans aren't that happy about all of these news articles and set photos being shown around the internet; we want to keep it a surprise for when we first see it when it explodes into theaters next summer in July; but we can not or try to avoid them, they are just their. Well, my fellows follwers and friends alike, I have some damn good news that you'll all love to hear: As you all know TDKR is almost complete with filming, if I'm not correct, they wrapped up production on November 11th, when they shot on scene in New York was shooting on the upper level of the span of the 59th Street Bridge until 8 p.m.Saturday. It was also closed Sunday between the hours of 1 a.m. and 8 p.m. But here's the good news, during filming, the set had HIGH level of security for both nights/days and it seems like their will be absolutely NO new set photos online from the bridge filming. So relax for this week on Monday and tell yourself to not worry about spoiling TDKR for yourself for the next seven days because I'm sure you will not see any photos from the bridge set.

    PS: Share your excitement and thoughts below and discus at what could be so secretive about filming on the bridge if their was heavily armed security?

    I ignore every story anyways. I don't want to know a thing about this film or The Avengers.

  • @ejk1 Their haven't been too much press for The Avengers since they already finished filming and it wasn't as heavily shown like TDKR, but I can assure you my friend that you'll be hearing no more about TDKR :)

  • You might think i'm a smart-ass for asking you this, @ejk1 How will you be able to ignore the marketing banners/posters and trailer spots on TV?

    @ghostman What do posters and banners tell you about the story? Not much. As for trailers, once commercials on whatever program I'm watching on TV start, I usually flip the channel to whatever else is on.

  • @ejk1 Oh, okay....good answer :) I just can't get enough of the trailer advertisements; whenever I see them, I get all excited! I take it that you'll not see M:I- Ghost Protocol in IMAX for that 6min sneak peek?

    @ghostman No. The closest IMAX is in NYC, and I'm not spending thirty bucks on a train ticket just to spend fifteen more on a movie ticket, especially not when I could see the same film by paying 80 cents for a bus ride and seven bucks on a movie ticket. Money is very tight; in no way can I afford luxury at the moment.

  • Yeah....that seems a little expensive to do that @ejk1 My IMAX theater is only a 30 minute drive from where I live and last time I was their to see Avatar, i think the ticket cost me about 15 dollars, so it's affordable for me to see it in IMAX. I can't wait for December, it's going to be such a huge month for TDKR when they start rolling out the marketing for this will be huge!

  • For trailers well, we are curious about the full length footage. I just need to watch it once. As for commercials and TV spots, which always show more than they should, I simply just not watch them. If there are no images in the viewing than I won't remember.
    There exist four rulers in this world: Gods, Humans, Vampires and Werewolves. The Question is, who do you think is above the food chain?

    Don't get me wrong though. I'm looking forward to the film, and hopeful that it will be great. But at the same time, I'm now willing to wait. I always want to know who is in a film, and what their role is, but I never want details of the plot. To me, that defeats the purpose of secrecy. I mean, Nolan doesn't tell who is who for months, but has no problem trotting out the Batwing? That just annoys me.

  • A Dark Knight Rises forum discussing the future (lack-of) Dark Knight Rises stories! Now I've seen it all my friends.. I'll be holding off any of the related articles till I'm satisfied with the trailer. But I will be waiting in line for Mission Impossible to catch that prologue, you can count on that!
