I'm beginning to think this ongoing saga about Bane's voice is some sort of viral marketing that's spiraled way out of control.

post #2604 of 4801

Viral marketing that makes as much sense as the movies main antagonist. Brilliant. 

post #2605 of 4801

Does viral marketing ever make any kind of sense?  It's all flash and wow nonsense that doesn't mean anything other than brand awareness.

post #2606 of 4801

If all the sound is put in after the fact, effects, music, etc, then they don't have to clean up Hardy's voice. Just turn the fucking background noise down a notch. If it weren't taking place on a loud plane this thread would be about 50 pages shorter.

The dude sounds like he's swallowed a scarf.

Not in the trailer though.

post #2611 of 4801

I guess, but consider this, 90% of the film is going to have loud music blaring away and sound effects* alongside Bane's dialogue, and coupled with that partly digested scarf, it will be a somewhat frustrating time at the movies.  It was kind of amusing watching the prologue and knowing nobody in the cinema could understand a word of what Bane was saying, and the argument that its on a plane with wind blowing and guns firing, frankly doesn't wash, because we could hear Carcetti's dialogue just fine.

 

Anyway, sorry for continuing the discussion about Hardy's voice, I know it's getting old now.

 

* I've been watching extras on the Alien anthology boxset, and felt relieved to hear Jerry Goldsmith complain about how most modern movies always have music through most of the running time and how directors just don't use silence anymore.

-Bear? Why don't we cut you up into little pieces and feed you to your pooches, hmm? And then we'll see just how loyal a hungry dog REALLY is! It's not about money... its about sending a message. Everything burns!


Also somehow I found this song from Batman Begins: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jLbEf3OrrnA
Did it ever get a proper release? I'd like to find a complete score without all the fx in the background.

(Totally semi back on topic, when I remembered some lines in my head, Heath really knocked the role out the park. I know common sense, but he really made the role his own.)
post #2631 of 4801

Chris Nolan said to EW: "I think when people see the film, things will come into focus. Bane is very complex and very interesting and when people see the finished film people will be very entertained by him."

 
Jonah Nolan added the following when speaking to CraveOnline: "I gotta tell you, I think what Tom Hardy's doing with the role is spectacular. I have the benefit of seeing a little bit more than the audience has seen at this point. It's pretty spectacular." He also talked about the prologue's action sequence in the air. "I think Chris had long wanted to do sort of the aerial spectacular. It's such a good fit for the IMAX cameras that he likes to shoot with and so that was a long time in the making."

Christopher Nolan: Professional Dodger of Questions. Seriously, I've read / watched enough interviews with the guy to know that he is an absolute master at that. He'll give this really elegant, substantive reply, and soon after he's finished, you realize he didn't actually say anything at all.

Cue the hate-talk about the Batsuit!

post #2634 of 4801

With the possible exception of the two different color tones, it looks exactly the same as the suit from TDK, so can't imagine anyone bitching that didn't already get it out of their system in 2007/8.  Still, this is the internet.

post #2635 of 4801

I think you're right, on both counts.

 

I'll be getting the hard copy of the magazine. I still have the post-release EW from summer of 2008 with TDK's success as the cover story.

post #2637 of 4801

Sorry, Renn. I liked it on my FB feed to make up for not giving y'all a heads up.

post #2638 of 4801

Saw Hardy in Stuart: A life Backwards last night.  He plays a very broken man who's reaction to a horrific childhood essentially turned him into a sociopath, unable to control the rage when it comes on (what he calls his "black mist").  Based on a true story, I'd highly recommend it.  


Anyway, Hardy plays Stuart as a mumbling, shambling man, who makes involuntary noises even when he's being quiet.  And even though you really had to concentrate to pick up what he was saying he was absolutely mesmerising and just dominated the screen.  This was pre-Bronson so he didn't have any of the physical bulk, but his presence was huge.


So after seeing that I have no worries about Bane at all.  In fact I hope he kind of plays him like Stuart because that would be a fascinating take on the character.

 

post #2639 of 4801

In the trailer did anyone else get chills when Bane says, "Imma sine your pitty on the runny tine!"?

post #2640 of 4801

Wow... Cumberbatch too?  That film was a predictor of the rise of TWO stars!

it's a cracking little film, both of them are brilliant in different ways in it

post #2645 of 4801

Interesting article discussing Nolan's take on the Batman, and the author seems to conclude what we've been discussing for years: that Nolan is actually showing us Batman is a failure, albeit a noble one. (TDKR may change that, but I think TDK makes a powerful argument that Batman's presence actually makes things worse rather than better.)

post #2646 of 4801

They're calling Batman's flying vehicle simply "The Bat." Odd.

post #2647 of 4801

The Bat...and The Man.

Don't hate the suit (even if it is a tad busy), just the damn photo. What is it with these friggin EW covers and unflattering pics? And I thought WB owned them???

post #2650 of 4801

I think it's a pretty awful photo - but I'm guessing the source image isn't from an EW shoot, but a WB-supplied promo shot. EW likely 'shopped the empty background in, and decided to use a photo that wasn't high res enough to not blur (I have the print edition, and Batman's head is far less than sharply focused).
