Apparently he took a shot at James Cameron's story telling skills, but i don't have a direct quote on that just yet. mark that as rumor.

@blueberryicedcoffee I promised I'd take back my words and I do
HeadPool420 - 6/22/2012, 1:43 PM
Did you know that Nolan started making porn before main stream movies?!?! That's why the action is so close to the camera!
Greengo - 6/22/2012, 1:46 PM
Haa haaa [frick] all y'all haters shits gonna be ssssiiiiicckckkkkkk

Wally Pfister is a smart man.
0ptimusCrime - 6/22/2012, 1:46 PM
With a movie that long is surely hope theres an hour of action
chujong - 6/22/2012, 1:48 PM
I cannot wait for this movie to come out. My brothers and I will be there on opening weekend taking in every freaking second of this movie. I love Batman and I enjoy Nolan's style of directing and storytelling. By the way, I am not a "Nolanite". :)
PreparationH - 6/22/2012, 1:49 PM
wait Pfister sounds like the word bat, bat rhymes with act, add a ion on the end ya get action times by two ya 60 minutes of action. Not to hard to figure out really
Greengo - 6/22/2012, 1:50 PM
LMFAO @ prepH :D
PreparationH - 6/22/2012, 1:56 PM
@monkeyballs3 Wait a second, I just got grammar owned?

SHHH - 6/22/2012, 2:00 PM
Nolan Can Do A Decent Job... ;)





Mendenhall12 - 6/22/2012, 2:01 PM
that's a lot of fighting
gmoney0505 - 6/22/2012, 2:02 PM
BB had some good fighting scenes. They were just edited so bad that they weren't they great to follow. watch the fight in the behind the scenes on the blu-ray and they are good.
antonio - 6/22/2012, 2:04 PM
Definitely going all out. Can't wait!!
Gerrit - 6/22/2012, 2:04 PM
It amazes me how criticizing anything related to this movie makes you a Marvel tard or Whedonite or Marvelit or whatever it is. Let people criticize movies in peace.
Now, an entire hour of action sounds good but it is hard to shoot an hour of action whithout making it boring when you only have regular people doing stuff. But I like the action in the previous films.
gmoney0505 - 6/22/2012, 2:05 PM
@Equinox
Yeah that video proved my point that BB has great fighting scenes, but they were just edited so wrong.

All off Nolan chase scenes are great to watch.
mrbioshock1984 - 6/22/2012, 2:07 PM
he shoots great chases! but his action scenes are not too good.Batman should be able to fight like Tony Jaa,Jackie Chan,Jet Li,Jason Statham and Guy from The Raid! i just hope the Bane vs. Batman turns out good and shot too close i want to see what the [frick] they are doing!
mrbioshock1984 - 6/22/2012, 2:09 PM
but to be fair some of the fight in TDKR trailers are looking pretty good.
Supes17 - 6/22/2012, 2:10 PM
Its not going to be an hour long action scenes. They're simply adding more action scenes to the story. And the scenes are 1 hour long in total
DanteSparda - 6/22/2012, 2:10 PM
@blueberryicedcoffee

LOL! I can't help but laugh at your comment, I don't have anything against this movie, but if you're really willing to defend the work of Nolan at least use The Dark Knight or any other of his movies as an example, seriously this movie haven't come out yet.
Unas - 6/22/2012, 2:10 PM
True dat Trudy. Wally is the most important chess piece.
Boyle360 - 6/22/2012, 2:12 PM
100 minutes isn't an hour... -__-
Comix - 6/22/2012, 2:14 PM
the first fighting scene in batman begins sucked, but that was back then. he improves every movie it seems.
JackSass - 6/22/2012, 2:15 PM
That MIGHT be enough for me.



Maybe.


lol
Durf - 6/22/2012, 2:15 PM
Sounds great I guess. I would prefer that the action scenes are more like Inception than BB or TDK. His filming/editing of the fight scenes were absolutely terrible in BB, one of the only complaints I have with that movie. That was improved in TDK, but still not very good. Again, one of the few gripes I had with that movie.

Nolan's fight/action scenes were vastly improved in Inception, so hopefully the fights in this are closer to that.
95 - 6/22/2012, 2:17 PM
Damn. That was a good one @SetGecko.
95 - 6/22/2012, 2:18 PM
Yeah. Because The Joker has never put a beat-down on a mentally "broken" Batman before.
patriautism - 6/22/2012, 2:19 PM
The last one says 100 minutes, that's an hour and 40 minutes....

So over half the movie is action scenes..
95 - 6/22/2012, 2:20 PM
It's a war film.
antonio - 6/22/2012, 2:21 PM
@Setgecko lol.
antonio - 6/22/2012, 2:22 PM
And the "100 minutes quote" is a misquote. Wally said an hour of action. Still enough for me.
LAXtremest - 6/22/2012, 2:22 PM
The last trailer actually made me a believer in this film. Not sure if I'll like it as much as Avengers, but it should be good.
Hawksblueyes - 6/22/2012, 2:23 PM
blueberryicedcoffee & Greengo: Just because there's an hours worth of action scenes in the movie, doesn't mean they are good action scenes. ;P
PaulRom - 6/22/2012, 2:23 PM
Nolan didn't do action scenes very well at all in Batman Begins. But IMO, Dark Knight and Inception were vast improvements. (Though, the battle between Bats and Joker was a bit underwhelming.)

I think the TDKR action scenes will be Nolan's best. In fact, I have a feeling that the movie in general blow away even those who hated on Begins and/or TDK.
antonio - 6/22/2012, 2:26 PM
This is going to look fantastic on screen
