So, I am not going to lie. This looks pretty bad ass.
I first saw this trailer in the theater while waiting for Under World to begin (BTW go see that movie if you have not already). The trailer opens with some little bastard singing our national anthem at a football game, and sadly the singing continues throughout the first half of the trailer. Then it cuts to some scene were Bruce and Alfred are having a little heart to heart about how Alfred failed at protecting Bruce and broke his promise to Bruce’s parents.
Don’t beat yourself up too much Alfred, I mean after all Bruce’s BILLIONAIRE parents did ask a fucking BUTLER to look after their son. They must have never seen the classic Disney movie Aristocats.
That always bothered me about Batman. I mean why would Bruce’s parents leave a butler in charge of their son? And where are all the other servants in Wayne Manor? You’re telling me this old geezer can keep up with all the upkeep required in that place? No way. NO. FUCKING. WAY.
Anyway, let’s get back on topic. We get a good look at BAINE in this trailer and really what can I say that hasn’t already been said? I am not sure how they are going to pull this one off. But to be honest I was weary about Heath Ledger as the Joker in Dark Knight so this could go either way. Lets just hope he does not end up looking like Bo Abobo from Double Dragon.
It’s also hinted that Commissioner Gordon is going to be out of a job soon because he is a ‘war hero’ and this is a time of peace. I am excited to see how they work Cat Woman into this movie, you only get a glimpse of her in the trailer and in that scene she is warning Bruce that the shit is about to hit the fan. How she knows this, I am not sure. Maybe this movie will get really griddy and we will see Anne Hathaway take a dump in a litter pan and turn her malevolent shits into some sort of explosive to aid Batman. THAT would be Oscar worthy.
I do like that this movie seems to want to send an additional message. I think this story is going to be really relevant to how things are going in the U.S. right now and hit on some serious issues.
The special effect’s are awesome too. I really love the scene of the entire football field just crumbling beneath the players feet. But I am not so happy about whatever flying drone is chasing the bat mobile later on the trailer. Looks a little too much like terminator and that is not a good look for anybody.
Overall this trailer really makes you want to pay the 20.00 theaters will charge.
