It was true, Christopher Nolan came to the CinemaCon ’12. He did not come alone, Nolan brought with him the new five minute footage to be shown at the convention. Everyone has been hyped to find out the details of the footage…well at least some of the descriptions. Below this point will be the descriptions of the footage. If you do not like to read the spoilers leave this post now.
BEYOND THIS POINT ARE THE FOOTAGE SPOILERS
The footage starts off with Bane’s dialogue on the CIA plane and Bane taking down the plane. The voice is much clearer according to nailbiter11 from Comic Book Movie. However, this could be due to the audio from CinemaCon. Since the convention has better technological equipment to make the audio sound clearer. After the CIA scene, the following scenes were shown:
- Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) dressed as a maid before ripping off the white frills and revealing her black dress
- James Gordon (Gary Oldman), as seen in the teaser trailer from last summer, lying in a hospital bed in bad shape
- Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) sitting in his Batcave, which still looks very much like a cave
- Bruce Wayne and Lucius Fox together in Wayne Enterprises
- A team of police officers in raid gear slowly touring through what appear to be subway tunnels
- Batman’s new vehicle, The Bat, taking to the air and spinning twisting as it flies over Gotham
- Catwoman, in her full costume, leaning down and stealing stuff from a safe
- Miranda Tate (Marion Cotillard) and Bruce Wayne sharing an intimate kiss
- Catwoman sitting on the Batpod and firing at a blocked tunnel in the distance
- Miranda Tate saying, “You’ve given them everything,” and Bruce Wayne replying, “Not yet.”
- Alfred (Michael Caine) talking about the difficulty of getting back into his old routine.
As some have theorized, the mysterious cloaked figure is John Blake. The footage does not give away any context of the film nor any dialogue about Blake’s purpose in the film. This remains a mystery, but that gives us a chance to theorize more. Blake’s scenes are as followed:
- Blake flashes a badge and is quickly seen wielding a shotgun
- Giant bridge crumbling in an explosion and then a reaction shot from Gordon-Levitt.
That is all the footage shows and it seems epic. It is five minutes worth so get pumped. It seems we’re not given any new dialogue in the five minute footage, but I must comment on Catwoman’s quick change into her black dress. So AWESOME! I am super stoked about the descriptions. She owes that Batpod! OWES IT! We now know about Blake, but know very little how he will play out in the movie. Sadness…DAMN YOU NOLAN FOR NOT LETTING US HEAR SOME SICK DIALOGUE! I hope trailer 3 gives us some Catwoman dialogue. MOAR DIALOGUE!
