THE DARK KNIGHT RISES' Oscar Campaign Heats Up; WB Release New Still From The Movie

Following yesterday's launch of their Oscar campaign for The Dark Knight Rises, a front page spread from 'Variety' has been revealed featuring just some of the critical acclaim it received, while a new still of a broken Batman has been released in the build up to the release of the film on DVD and Blu-ray.

Following the news that Warner Bros. are moving full steam ahead with an Oscar campaign for The Dark Knight Rises (find details HERE if you missed it), the following advertisement from the latest issue of 'Variety' reveals exactly how seriously the studio are taking their plans to give Christopher Nolan's third and final Batman movie the push it deserves to at least secure some notable nominations come awards season. Also below is a brand new still from the movie which was released via the official Facebook page in the build up to the DVD and Blu-ray release next month.

Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ "The Dark Knight Rises" is the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. The screenplay is written by Christopher Nolan and Jonathan Nolan, story by Christopher Nolan & David S. Goyer. The film is produced by Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Charles Roven, who previously teamed on “Batman Begins” and the record-breaking blockbuster "The Dark Knight." The executive producers are Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Kevin De La Noy and Thomas Tull, with Jordan Goldberg serving as co-producer. The film is based upon characters appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. Batman was created by Bob Kane.


Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman

Gary Oldman as Commissioner Jim Gordon
Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox
Tom Hardy as Bane
Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman

if any superhero movie deserves an oscar this year it would either be dredd or avengers, definitly not this movie, if tdk didn't get nominated this sure as hell won't
MisterJay - 11/13/2012, 10:42 AM
mediocre movie... doesn't deserve the nomination
ATrueHero1987 - 11/13/2012, 10:43 AM
Yep, this page is about to turn into a war zone.
subzero1077 - 11/13/2012, 10:43 AM
It doesn't deserve a nomination, it deserves a WIN!
Moakynubs - 11/13/2012, 10:44 AM
"Look, a scene from the movie, except not moving! Plz give us an oscar!"
Niem8211 - 11/13/2012, 10:45 AM
they will probably give it to some dumb [frick]ing movie with no sound again... what a [frick]ing joke...
rockerdude22 - 11/13/2012, 10:45 AM
Kinda mixed about the pic. It's not bad, but there's something off about it.

On another note, I have a feeling where this thread is heading. Time to whip out the booze!

@cipher Got some booze reserved for you, dude!

Rowsdower - 11/13/2012, 10:46 AM
This is silly. It wasn't even that good.

And I LOVED Begins and Dark Knight, but even those are not Oscar worthy.
marvel72 - 11/13/2012, 10:47 AM
nope it doesn't deserve oscar actually it doesn't deserve any award.
CapA - 11/13/2012, 10:49 AM
There will be butthurt...
tripttwe - 11/13/2012, 10:50 AM
Nope. It didn't do as good as The Dark Knight DID. If you don't like that statement- FUUUUUUUUUUU-_-CKK YOU! It wasn't great, barely good,and I LOVE Batman and the first two. It felt rushed, the Joker was badly missing, and it had a lot of plot holes. Taking out the Joker was like removing Michael from the Jackson 5. I think in hindsight, Nolan should have replaced the character and finished the original story...
RedeyeJedi - 11/13/2012, 10:52 AM
Begins was the best Batman movie ever. TDKR was garbage.
TicklerMan - 11/13/2012, 10:54 AM
"this movie would have been better is Brock Lestner played Bane and actually had the luchador outfit. And they should have brought back the Joker so he can team up against batman to defeat Bane. And this movie Should of had a Green Latern Cameo"

Psychotic TDKR haters who are still pissed their idea was turned down by anyone who has what resembles a rational mind.

Let's get [frick]ing pissed. :P

Avengers for every award
Supes17 - 11/13/2012, 10:57 AM
WHy don't we all stop this useless bickering and have a litle fun instead?

Like playing "Caption this Photo"

Supes17 - 11/13/2012, 10:58 AM
"Go home Batman, you're drunk!"
JordanKing - 11/13/2012, 10:58 AM
Okay, this is starting to get stupid now. Of all the films this year that deserve an Oscar, this one is certainly not near the top.
rockerdude22 - 11/13/2012, 10:58 AM
@NerdyGeek and cipher Alright gentleman, start your engines! *starts taking shots*

Oh, and I'm gonna guess around 5 pages lol
charlie2094 - 11/13/2012, 11:00 AM
This thread will get...heated, though it shouldn't, we should be supporting CBM's for oscars and this is the only one that stands a chance. WE SHOULD ALL BE SUPPORTING THIS.
For a comic book film to be oscar nominated, would be huge. We've started breaking 1 Billion at the box office, to start winning oscars, or just being nominated, would be a huge deal for the genre. Of current cbm's, Rises is the only one that really stands a chance of winning non-technical oscars.

If any of the Batman films deserve to win, it's this won. I wouldn't say Best Picture, maybe director, practical effects and supporting actor -Tom Hardy. I mean, he showed far more emotion with just his eyes than most do with their entire face. From the reviews and acclaim it's got, it's certainly not out of the picture. Whilst TDK may have a higher percentage on Rotten Tomatoes, Rises had more emotions and themes than the previous, which is something the critics like.

Regardless of whether some of you somehow think this is a "garbage" film, despite critical acclaim from critics and audiences, we SHOULD ALL BE SUPPORTING THIS!
rockerdude22 - 11/13/2012, 11:00 AM
I'll just say this too. TDKR is a very good movie, but it's not some high-class art film that a lot of people here act like it is. It's a summer blockbuster and a CBM. Nothing more. It's just taken a little more seriously than others.

If you want to see some real artistic films, then I suggest you check out the works of Ingmar Bergman.
NerdyGeek - 11/13/2012, 11:01 AM

Word on the street is that a DVD rip will be available this weekend. And, don't worry, I will gif the shit out of it.

Now, back to getting pissed.

marvel72 - 11/13/2012, 11:03 AM
the caption for the photo.

a film so boring in places,it even made batman fall asleep.
NerdyGeek - 11/13/2012, 11:04 AM
Supes: I've got just the thing.
rockerdude22 - 11/13/2012, 11:06 AM
Lady break!

GiantNerd - 11/13/2012, 11:07 AM
I will put this movie on every night when I'm trying to sleep and I don't feel tired yet.
NerdyGeek - 11/13/2012, 11:07 AM

RedeyeJedi - 11/13/2012, 11:07 AM
@marvel72- Well done, you made me spit out my cereal with that one.
rockerdude22 - 11/13/2012, 11:07 AM
@cipher DAYUM!! DADDY LIKE!! Who is that sexy lady?
marvel72 - 11/13/2012, 11:09 AM
nolanites vs marvelites-this article is just fuel for the never ending war!

rockerdude22 - 11/13/2012, 11:09 AM
NerdyGeek - 11/13/2012, 11:11 AM
cipher: Very nice my man!

Newbus - 11/13/2012, 11:13 AM
I wonder how many lollipops are gonna be sucked just to get the film in the list of nominees?
AC1 - 11/13/2012, 11:14 AM
The only thing that might get a nom is the score. Zimmer's a musical genius. The rest of the film was disappointing and highly cliched. Has no one else noticed that the story actually follows many of the same beats that The Dark Knight did?

@Niem8211 I hope you realise that if it weren't for silent films there would be no cinema today, meaning no CBMs. And for a movie to actually take the risk of going back and using an almost extinct format, in order to do something different and unique against the cookie cutter crap that is pumped out of Hollywood all the time, is an incredibly brave and bold move. And it paid off. You didn't like The Artist? Fine. That's your opinion. But to brand it as 'some dumb [frick]ing movie with no sound" makes you look incredibly stupid.

rockerdude22 - 11/13/2012, 11:25 AM
@TheYoungMan I am. I was just stating my opinion on the film. It's okay if you think differently.
l0rdleg0las - 11/13/2012, 11:26 AM
No way in hell this overrated piece of shit gets oscar nominated. If TDK which was a vastly superior movie didn't get nominated TDKR has no chance
GiantNerd - 11/13/2012, 11:27 AM

rockerdude22 - 11/13/2012, 11:28 AM
@TheYoungMan Plus, I was just stating that I didn't agree with what some other people say on here. I don't see anything wrong with that.
GiantNerd - 11/13/2012, 11:29 AM

Apparently you are only supposed to have opinions that coincide with his.
