UPDATE #2: First Descriptions of the New Footage For THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

<font color="red">UPDATE #2:</font> First Descriptions of the New Footage For THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

Over five minutes of new footage for Christopher Nolan's third and final Batman film was screened today at Las Vegas' Cinema Con, and the reactions have been overwhelmingly positive.

Cinema Blend has posted their description of The Dark Knight Rises footage that was shown at today's Warner Bros. presentation at Las Vegas' Cinema Con.

One of the many things that people are commenting on is that Bane's voice has drastically improved since the prologue was screened months ago, and despite Nolan claiming he wouldn't alter the voice. Although Cinema Blend thinks the advanced technology is what might have been the reason for the improvement in Bane's voice being more clear.

I understood every word that Bane said.

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.

John Blake (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) the footage shown today once again didn’t give us any dialogue from the character, it did show quite a bit of him – and in some interesting situations.

In the scenes shown Blake flashes a badge and is quickly seen wielding a shotgun, but the most interesting cut featured a giant bridge crumbling in an explosion and then a reaction shot from Gordon-Levitt. Just as with trailers, it’s hard to know if that will actually be the cut in the final film or if it was done for dramatic effect, but it most definitely had the latter.

IGN has posted their description as well.
A new, atmospheric Bat-score was used here, music that slowly built in tension and eeriness the way Joker's theme did in The Dark Knight. There was plenty of images of Batman and Catwoman in action here, lots of Batpod stuff, brawling and explosions. The overriding takeaway from this footage was that the very existence of Gotham City itself is at stake, with a stunning bridge destruction set-piece, more of the football stadium chaos, and the fighting in the streets between Bane's merc army and the Gotham City Police Department (including shots of Commissioner Gordon, Joseph Gordon-Levitt's John Blake, and and Matthew Modine's politically-ambitious cop in action). We also see Bane and his men attacking the Gotham Stock Exchange.

We see Catwoman kicking gunmen in the streets, firing the Batpod's weapons, but most importantly a dialogue scene between her and Batman. Catwoman tells Batman, "You've given them everything!" Batman cryptically replies, "I haven't given them everything.

Bruce working in his new Batcave, as well as a very "we were destined for this"/finding each other in the crowd showdown between Batman and Bane. It was like two mythic gunfighters meeting for the duel to decide who lives or dies. This town literally isn't big enough for the both of them.

A very intriguing shot of a mystery man at that stronghold in India they began filming at last year, as well as a hot and heavy shot of Bruce and Selina kissing.

Here is Entertainment Weekly's account of what they witnessed today at the screening.
Bale has sunken eyes; he looks pale and haggard, and uses a cane. By comparison, Michael Caine’s Alfred appears as if he hasn’t aged a day. “Don’t worry, Master Wayne,” the butler reassures him later in the footage. “It takes a little time to get back in the swing of things.”

Anne Hathaway’s Selina Kyle (a.k.a. Catwoman) is revealed to be a maid working in Wayne Manor. On screen, she is nearly skewered by a crossbow arrow Bruce appears to be firing in his dining room. Nolan doesn’t include much dialogue here, but we do see the maid leaving the mansion and peeling off her uniform as her demeanor changes, Keyser Söze-style.

An explosion seals off downtown Gotham, allowing an army of infiltrators – or maybe just the dispossessed — to lay waste to the privileged class of the city while police – and even Batman – are helpless to stop it.

The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters July 20th 2012 and stars Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth, Gary Oldman as Jim Gordon, Tom Hardy as Bane, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake and Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate.

Supes17 - 4/24/2012, 1:11 PM
@Irons: It's nothing too revealing. They don't like to spoil much in movie trailers and previews
Irons - 4/24/2012, 1:16 PM
In that case... I'll read lol.
Lilvic92 - 4/24/2012, 1:25 PM

So at the end Nolan changed Bane's voice even when he said he wouldn't? MY GOD! The nolanites are now more powerful than Nolan!

thewonderer - 4/24/2012, 1:36 PM

Actually people probably either A) actually tried listening (because nothing was wrong with his voice to begin with) or B)didn't realize that the prologue was on a loud airplane.

Either way, cannot wait for this
MassExecutions - 4/24/2012, 1:40 PM
You know what I'd like to see in some new footage? A WELL SHOT FIGHT SCENE.
Spidey91 - 4/24/2012, 1:43 PM
Batman is going to die,isn't he? :P
Phlegmbot - 4/24/2012, 1:47 PM
Trying to get excited about this, but it's not happening.

Or, let me put it another way: I'm a fan of Nolan and of Batman in general but this sounds awful.

I'm NOT at ALL a fan of Joss Whedon but the more I read/heard/saw on Avengers - characters I don't much care for overall - has gotten me very excited to see the movie.

Perhaps I'm just old-fashioned.
OnLeatherWings - 4/24/2012, 1:53 PM
Sounds epic as hell!!!!! I want new footage baaaaadddddd!
Squaremaster316 - 4/24/2012, 1:54 PM

Yes, but agent Coulson stealing Edward's dialogue from Twilight while talking to Cap is a "Great scene"
xmen145 - 4/24/2012, 1:55 PM
is anybody seeing the mistake!!!!

Well said.


Hawksblueyes - 4/24/2012, 1:56 PM
I confirm tea's comment.

Also, this just in.....Elderly, intoxicated, Michigan man found earlier today ramming his Rascal repeatedly into a brick wall at the Detroit Zoo. When authorities asked what his problem seemed to be, he replied..."just trying to get into the monkey cage. That shit slinging looks like fun and my diaper is full!"
SmellofDuty - 4/24/2012, 1:59 PM
@Teabag I couldn't agree more man. But there is a difference with people trolling and giving an opinion.
0ptimusCrime - 4/24/2012, 1:59 PM
this movie is already so overhyped, i think I (and i say I) will be very dissapointed, just as TDK, which i only liked cause of the Joker. i expected way to much of it.
trailer 1 was boring and really hope trailer 2 gets me excited, cause when im reading dark knight and detective comics i Am.

Ranger14 - 4/24/2012, 2:01 PM
@ what teabag said to Ironman 666

Exactly. I am a fan of Marvel and DC. I do have my reservations about TDKR and they are my opinion and am free to express it on the forums here. I am not a "hater", just disappointed with some of the choices that were made for the film, which makes me skeptical. I feel the exact same way about TASM. Guess I am a Marvel and DC hater so why the heck am I here. :-P

Supes17 - 4/24/2012, 2:02 PM
Only on Comicbookmovie.com do we celebrate great CBM news with BIG BOOBIES!!

RacerREX - 4/24/2012, 2:03 PM
You DC/Nolan fanboys can suck it. Just wait until the Avengers 2 comes out from Marvel. Then you will see a true superhero masterpiece! Just heard they are upping the ante on directors with the announcement that my boy M. Night Shama-lama-ding-dong will be directing. Here's an early poster just for the DC crowd. Now you can tremble with fear suckas'!
bobevanz - 4/24/2012, 2:04 PM
I've been saying for months that batman dies, bazinga! Then he can finally give gotham everything, such a shame...
PreparationH - 4/24/2012, 2:05 PM
@teabag Are you even a real person?
Hawksblueyes - 4/24/2012, 2:06 PM
Dusto: You should have seen the lady's I dated when I was younger. ;P

Ranger: I concur my friend. Some of these newer members should have been around for the "all in good fun" debates that used to be common place around here.
R888 - 4/24/2012, 2:07 PM

Hawksblueyes - 4/24/2012, 2:08 PM
PreparationH: Oh! tea is very real! He made me give up coffee.....and sleeping for fear of sheep and full body shavings.
rockerdude22 - 4/24/2012, 2:12 PM
I'll be honest. This doesn't sound all that epic from the description, sounds quite boring actually. However, the actual footage is most likely better than the description makes it out to be. I'd have to watch it to make a final judgement.
AlexDeLarge87 - 4/24/2012, 2:12 PM
Sounds fun! :)

Supes17@ That poster is pretty badass!

Winter in Gotham looks great!
marvel72 - 4/24/2012, 2:13 PM
@ mbembet

they might not be talking about the avengers(rotten tomatoes ratings 97% reveiw 98% audience)

they're still buzzing about how good the amazing spider-man is to worry about the dark knight rises just yet. :D
