As Twitter pal, @allflicker quipped this morning:
When can I pre-order my Dark Knight Rises prologue tickets? I hear there’s a movie attached to it!
(Answer: The 6-minute prologue is a bonus with your ticket to IMAX screenings of Mission: Impossible 4, Dec 21). Christopher Nolan and Tom Hardy talk about Bane and The Dark Knight Rises in the current issue of Empire Magazine.
On Bane: “He’s brutal, brutal. He’s expedient delivery of brutality. And you know, he’s a big dude. He’s a big dude who’s incredibly clinical, in the fact that he has a result-based and orientated fighting style. The result is clear. “Do you know what I mean? It’s: f**k off and die. Quicker. Quicker. Everything is thought out way before. He’s hit you, he’s already hit somebody else. It’s not about fighting. It’s just about carnage with Bane. He’s a smashing machine. He’s a wrecking ball. The style is heavy-handed, heavy-footed, it’s nasty. Anything from small joint manipulation to crushing skulls, crushing rib cages, stamping on shins and knees and necks and collarbones and snapping heads off and tearing his fists through chests, ripping out spinal columns. It’s anything he can get away with. He is a terrorist in his mentality as well as brutal action. So he’s horrible. A really horrible piece of work.”
