Warner Bros. Says There Is "No Truth" To The New Audio Mix For THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

Warner Bros. Says There Is "No Truth" To The New Audio Mix For THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

If you were hoping that the rumor that surfaced yesterday was true, then bad news... It seems that Warner Bros. is saying that nothing has changed as far as Bane's voice goes. Check it out...

Well, that was fast. Yesterday, it was reported that Warner Brothers have changed (cleaned up) the audio for The Dark Knight Rises IMAX prologue, so people could understand Bane in the film, since there were many complaints about that. And now it seems that is not true after all.

From The New York Times writer Dave Itzkoff (via The Playlist):

"Warner Bros. says "no truth" to reports of new Dark Knight Rises prologue trailers going out with fixed Bane audio."

Starring Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard and Morgan Freeman, The Dark Knight Rises is set to hit theatres on July 20, 2012.

marvel72 - 1/3/2012, 11:49 AM

headlopper - 1/3/2012, 11:49 AM
What a surprise....
HelaGood - 1/3/2012, 11:50 AM
GOOD!!! there realy isnt anything wrong with it! AND Nolan shouldnt be tweaking his voice at this point just to please a few dumbasses who cant hear.
JatevinM - 1/3/2012, 11:50 AM
Thank goodness because personally I like his voice and found it to be quite intimidating.
HelaGood - 1/3/2012, 11:51 AM
now on to the REAL issue... his costume... can they tweak that in post now??? lol

jbak368 - 1/3/2012, 11:51 AM
I didn't see it in IMAX but I was able to understand Bane fine on the bootleg. Never expected Nolan to change a thing.
CaptainTall - 1/3/2012, 11:52 AM
I love the voice.
DocDrop - 1/3/2012, 11:53 AM
I think it sounds cool. Not British like people were saying, more German or Eastern European.
Christuffer - 1/3/2012, 11:56 AM

Next....Bane Dubstep ftw
headlopper - 1/3/2012, 12:07 PM
@Nomis- You have no idea how funny that is!(NOT sarcasm)
PapaEmeritus - 1/3/2012, 12:07 PM
@Ruka, pervertido e esquizóide!!! huahauhau
Transforminator - 1/3/2012, 12:08 PM
i really have no problem with his voice whatsoever
ironknight - 1/3/2012, 12:09 PM
The fact is that there are a number of people that cannot or have trouble understanding him. Even if you yourself can, its probably a good idea to fix it. Because as many of us forget, Nolan is not perfect.
KobraKai - 1/3/2012, 12:10 PM
Don't be so quick to debunk this. TheFilmStage tweeted that NYTimes guy back.

TheFilmStage The Film Stage
@ditzkoff viewers have seen both and reporting that it is indeed a much cleaner version. Looks like they just don't want to own up.
WellDrawn - 1/3/2012, 12:12 PM
Why would they 'fix' it? It's really not that hard to understand, especially if you've seen the high quality prologue.
grifter - 1/3/2012, 12:13 PM
I enjoy his voice. All that is left is for my to buy the tickets and enjoy this last film in the Nolan trilogy. Hell who knows? Maybe if WB throws enough money at Nolan, he'll come back for a fourth.
GeneralZod1138 - 1/3/2012, 12:13 PM
I think his voice is perfect. Knew this would be debunked sooner or later.
webheaded - 1/3/2012, 12:15 PM
There's nothing wrong with the voice! I heard it just fine. The prologue's voice was a bit misunderstandable at times because it was caught on a camera. Stop trying to nitpick at the movie. If I can understand, so can you..
INSTANTJUSTICE - 1/3/2012, 12:21 PM
"It never happened, it's just that you're hearing different" -exec.
MarkV - 1/3/2012, 12:22 PM
Love the new Bane. He seems quite scarey. I like that his voice sounds like he's damaged in some frightening manner.
Supes17 - 1/3/2012, 12:28 PM
makes sense. Why would they re-edit the footage and re-send it to theaters?
Mrcool210 - 1/3/2012, 12:30 PM
called it
hoodedjester - 1/3/2012, 12:31 PM
I think I have listened to it 5 or 6 times and I haven't had any trouble hearing what he was saying. Glad to hear this is a rumour as Nolan has already said No to making changes to it.

Tho, the music volume could be pulled back a bit in the trailer.
drfate - 1/3/2012, 12:33 PM
I could barely understand Bane too. You shouldn't have to struggle and guess to understand a performance. I don't mind a gruff voice, but it is unintelligible. I hope they find a good balance before the release date.
dahamma - 1/3/2012, 12:39 PM
Nooooo!! sigh Man I cant say it gonna be bad but some bits in the prologue it was not clear like What does he say before he says "we need to know what he(dr Povel) said about us?"

I just hope while watching the movie I dont miss important points because of his voice. I just wanna lean back and watch the epic conclusion of B man easily.
PapaEmeritus - 1/3/2012, 12:41 PM
@Ruka, cuidado com essa tua olhota! os caras tão putos aqui! cadê minha advertência??? huahua
ISleepNow - 1/3/2012, 12:42 PM
Looks like the left hand knows not what the right hand is doing
GeneralZod1138 - 1/3/2012, 12:48 PM
I agree if they want to change ANYTHING, maybe pull back the music/background while he talks a bit. But his voice itself is fine.
DCnerd46 - 1/3/2012, 12:49 PM
DiamondQuinn - 1/3/2012, 12:50 PM
I agree with GeneralZod1138. I saw this in IMAX and his voice was great but the additional noise from the plane/music, etc. kinda drowned him out in a couple of small places. If anything, just tweak the sounds levels.
NerdyGeek - 1/3/2012, 12:54 PM
Anybody who couldn't hear him is clearly deaf!

NerdyGeek - 1/3/2012, 12:55 PM
BTW. That's the Montage from the prologue with High-Quality audio!
Supes17 - 1/3/2012, 1:07 PM
That looks awesome, Irish!
I've been trying to find an hq version of the prologue but they all get taken down
Fogs - 1/3/2012, 1:09 PM
No problem with his voice. I find it pretty awesome, to be honest.
Supes17 - 1/3/2012, 1:09 PM
I saw it in IMAX, and I understood everything...
So..if you guys have only seen low-quality bootlegs, Quit yo bitchin'.
I still think it needs some editing
Supes17 - 1/3/2012, 1:09 PM
but nothing major

@Trude LMFAO!!! I can hear Bill saying that when I look at that picture.

It's a win a win. Nothing critical was wrong with the voice to begin with, and any improvement is an improvement. Either way, BANE is a BOUWSS.
GodzillaKart - 1/3/2012, 1:46 PM
I could understand Bane just as well as everyone else in the clip. The audio wasn't great but I think that has to do with the quality of the clip. So far, I think Bane looks top notch.
