The Dark Knight Rises official runtime is being reported to being a few seconds shy of 165 minutes. Or 2 hours and 44 minutes.
When you add the 15 to 30 minutes of movie previews in the theater, this will be making your movie experience around 3 or more hours.
What this means is that we will probably be wishing that movie theaters start having intermissions, or you need to condition yourself for the experience and have no fluids for a few hours beforehand. (LOL)
The other bit of news that seems to have come out is with less then three weeks until opening, a new film synopsis for The Dark Knight Rises has come out.
WTH? Why are we being besieged with so many TV clips and and now a new summary. Here’s the new summary:
[It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act.
But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.]
And if I tried to keep up with all the clips and trailers that have come out, I think we would have seen the entire movie by now… or have about 14 movie posters and 69 different clips.
I seriously can’t see a Christopher Nolan film sucking like that. At all. But seriously, every single channel I watch I get TDKR clips or trailers every hour. Whether it be sports, drama, sci-fi or what not. And I’ve been bed-ridden, recovering from shoulder surgery.
I’ve seen so many clips, my enthusiasm has waned a bit.
