You know that you want new images from a Batman movie. You might not have woke up today realizing that you wanted it – but it’s close to the rapture anyway – your brain is pretty scrambled.
The Dark Knight was one of the highest grossing movies in history – a noir film that tied together Christopher Nolan’s roots with psychology and precise film-making with the powerhouse performances of Heath Ledger, Christian Bale, and Aaron Eckhart – and by all accounts was one of the best superhero movies that’s been crafted. Production has been delayed so Nolan can work on other lucrative projects like Inception – but now he’s back on the bat train. Joining him will be Joseph Gordon Levitt, Tom Hardy, and Anne Hathaway – and the first image from production has been graciously leaked out to the public.
The viral campaign started at TheDarkKnightRises.com, and was linked to a looping audio clap that apparently repeated ‘the fire rises’ over and over again. That link was a Twitter account – www.twitter.com/thefirerises, and for every new follower the account received, a small square of the picture was revealed.
Until some enterprising person hacked it and leaked the whole image.
So here it is – Tom Hardy as Bane. Prepare your body.
