Looks considerably more interesting than the first trailer that came out, a lot more Liam Neeson in this one

The teaser is supposed to be out this monday. Maybe that's why it's not working.
"The film that really struck me was Ridley Scott's 'Blade Runner.' That was a film I watched many, many times and found endlessly fascinating in its density. But I think the density of that film is primarily visual density and atmospheric and sound density, more so than narrative density. But, yeah, I think for a lot of filmmakers particularly, there will be a film like that in their past that they've really become a little obsessed with and seen too many times, or more times than seems healthy." - Christopher Nolan

I think that's the old teaser, actually. ?-Man's isn't working for me. :angry:

If I recall correctly, James Newton-Howard is co-composing along with Hans Zimmer (IMDB only lists JNH, but as co-composer).

Yeah, I discovered that was the old teaser. Still fun though. I didn't find anything at ? man's link, there was nothing to click on.

Sounds promising score-wise, JNH has done some great stuff lately. I love The Village. Sensitive yet dramatic.

I'm not quite sure how it came about, but I'm suffering from spectacle fatigue lately. These swiftly cut trailers just don't do anything for me anymore. It looks noisy and pretentious, like a trailer for a Bruckheimer production, riddled with cheap marketing quotes.
It looks like they've just packed this stuff together for the trailer, and I'm going to assume the film's a bit better balanced. I'm not sure I really want to see all that training stuff either, and I must say that up until now I haven't been able to warm up to this film. This trailer did not change anything.

What I like is that the film looks more "real world" this time. Previous installments were like circuses with clowns and all.

The first two were amazing because of the production design. They created Gotham city. Certainly, they lost the character somewhere in the scenery, but you can't rag the world Burton created. This one may be a (hopefully) much more character driven movie, but no matter how fantastic the movie might be, the world Burton created is one of the most amazing urban worlds I've seen on film.

There wasnt enough music in that to hear anything about it really. I was curious how they came to be partnering on this, but JNH and Zimmer are apparently pretty close friends.

Listen to the JNH interview here.

(Also - the first Zimmer clip there is funny - hes awfully honest lol!)

I hope Neeson will play a better mentor here then he did in TPM.

Not for Batman franchise, it isn't. It's Batman in a more "Earthy" environment.

Neeson did quite alright in TPM, Stefancos. It's Ewan you should complain about. Or do you mean he wasn't a successful mentor, story-wise? Why would you hope that for?

True, it almost looked like Bruce Wayne in Middle Earth. :)

Neeson was OK, i guess, especially considereing the material he had to work with.

But his performance as Qui-Gon was lightyears removed from his work in Schindlers List.

Well, you know how Lucas directs his actors! The only guidelines he's able to give are: Action! Cut! See you tomorrow.

Lucas isn't Spielberg.

It's hard for Neeson to top his performance in Schindler's List, although I've read he's pretty good in Kinsey.

There's been enough Joe versions of Batman already, you know, with all the shiny, glitter, goofiness we could take. Play time is finally over now. At last, Batman grew up. Thank you, Nolan.

as usual Alex, what you think and what you know are wider than the atlantic. If WB had quit after Batman, I wouldn't have cared.

Joe, not a big Batman fan, and who has no versions like Alex believes in his small brainstem.
If it isn't high concept the it's not worth watching believed the pseudo superior one.
