Hey folks, Harry here... the bet is, this'll be attached to the fetid Scatwoman which is soon to be released... or at the very least shown at the San Diego Comic Con this coming weekend. I'm really curious to hear what sort of music they put on all of this. We shouldn't have long to wait now! Here ya go...
Brundlefly here - my last post was a review for 'Around the world in 80 days' - i copped a lot of crap in the talk backs for reviewing an 'illegal copy' ala 'The Hulk' - well it wasn't an illegal copy i saw - i viewed the film while doing my job....anyway, thought i'd mention it because this is something i also saw during the course of my day today.
I was privy to a rough cut of the 'Batman Begins' trailer.
I usually find trailer descriptions tedious but for this film I'll make an exception. ..
Here's a shot by shot (stylistically, the films look is raw &bleak, in fact it looks a lot like Nolan's 'Insomnia'...funny that, being the same cinematographer...)
The silvery warners Logo appears (like the Harry potter one)
(Christian Bale's voice narrates the trailer in a raspy, low voice)
* "They told me there was nothing out there"
A low angle shot tracking in front of a bleak rainswept wayne manor. It appears to be a wake. A few people mill about with black umbrellas.
*"they told me there was nothing to fear"
Shot of Alfred (caine) with an umbrella, standing in the rain with a young Bruce next to him.
* Low angle shot looking up from the bottom of a well
- A silhouetted young boy falls through the boarded up opening, he drops down towards the camera, debris flying about him.
* back to close up of small boy in the rain next to Alfred.
"but the night my parents were murdered i caught a glimpse of something..."
*flash cut to a terrified young Bruce cowering in terror, he is partially splattered in blood..
*"....I've looked for it ever since" - an adult Bruce walks slowly along a rainy dock looking out over the ocean. Fades out.
*shot of a rugged iceland mountain range.
*bruce's lonely figure climbs to the top of a snowy mountain range and begins to walk down the other side towards a lonely settlement.
*"I went around the world....searched in all the shadows"
In the barren, icey tundra Bruce enters what looks like a tibetan village, it's desolate, run down, delapidated...
*"and there is something out there in the darkness".
In a blizzard, Bruce climbs a stone stairway to a hilltop monastery.
Bruce enters the monastery in a shot similar to Aragorn entering King Theodan's keep at Helm's deep in The Two Towers - pushing two massive doors open, light shafts in etc...
*"...that will not stop until it gets revenge"
A feral looking Bruce sits in a dungeon like room, he's dishevelled, dirty.
A shadowy figure moves towards him - we do not see it's face - Bruce's head snaps around to see the assailant - the music climaxes - cut to black -there is a long pause...
*shot of Christian Bale's face , he says: "me"
There is a flash frame of the picture we've already seen - a brooding, costumed Batman in dramatic lighting -cuts to black - out of the blackness comes the rust coloured, revamped bat logo - no title - it says "summer 2005'"
so there you go Harry - personally i think it looks fantastic - Nolan you da frickin' man.
