Nolan names Batman 3 The Dark Knight Rises

Nolan names Batman 3 The Dark Knight Rises

First, Batman Began. Then, he was vilified as the Dark Knight. What’s next? The Dark Knight Rises, of course! Christopher Nolan and Warner Bros. have finally come forward to offer the title of the next film in the Batman film franchise. Formally known only as “Batman 3”, the super hero film due out on July 20th 2012 will now be known as The Dark Knight Rises. According to sources over at MightyGeek, we also know who the villain wont be – the Riddler! Sure, that’s not as cool as solid details on who Bruce Wayne will be fighting while in his super cape, but we’re willing to wait patiently. And maybe not so patiently. The made-for-IMAX film is still early into development, but everyone is already excited to see how the Caped Crusader will kick butt again!

Light the Signal, Batman The Dark Knight Returns to theaters July 20, 2012

Even with a number of animated DVD appearances, Batman, the famed caped crusader of DC Comics’ Gotham City, hasn’t been seen in a feature film since 2008’s The Dark Knight, and Batman Begins before that. That film became the then-second (now third, thanks to Avatar) highest grossing film of all time with $533 million in the US, $1 billion worldwide. Now, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures, along with Christopher Nolan, have officially announced “Batman 3“, a followup sequel to the blockbuster franchise, hitting theaters, and IMAX, on July 20th, 2012. Information on the cast and plot, at this point, is nothing more than speculation, though it is assumed the core actors will reprise their roles: Christian Bale as Batman, Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, Michael Caine as Alfred, etc. The date comes almost 4 years after The Dark Knight hit theaters, but a mere 2 and a half weeks after Disney and Marvel’s Spider-Man returns. Will you see them both?

But some people are trying to figure out “how” it’s doing so well — I mean, other than the fact that it graces us with some gorgeous CG animation effects. One of the best aspects of the movie, visually speaking, is the motion capture technology that allowed some of the ultra-life-like animation to take place; very similar to the idea of “Avatar”, in an of itself. You’re a very smart man, Mr. James Cameron. Check out the behind the scenes look at how some of this magic was captured

James Cameron's Avatar still setting records

With every passing day, Avatar continues to set box office records (no, not Nickelodeon’s Avatar). James Cameron’s latest epic adventure turns the art of CG animation into a masterpiece unlike any have before. All four weeks in theaters, the film has hit the top spot, only losing marginal ground week-to-week, which is incredibly rare for a film. Showing in nearly 200 Imax screens, with nearly 100 more Imax 3D theaters, it has become the largest production to date. As of this posting, it’s just shy of $500million domestically, a line it will likely cross this weekend. It’s huge!! Have you seen it yet? Would this trailer help?
