Variety's Stuart Oldhman has a source that is reporting a run time on Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises. It's not four hours long, but could it be three hours long?
That would make this the shortest of the trilogy, right? The other 2 were about 2 and a half hours long each if I remember right.
Sounds about right. I just hope that afte this one comes out on Bluray and we all rush out to buy it that they don;t release some sort of multi-disc box set with all kinda of extra footage in the movie itself.
They only released like 3 different versions of The Dark Knight, but I'm sure they'll do a "3 pack-trilogy set" for all of these.
Makes complete sense seeing as how Bane/Catwoman won't be nearly as interesting or mesmerizing as The Joker was. And Batman begins needed to show Batman's training as well as the villain situation, so it made sense for that to be longer.
As long as the movie can capture my attention it can be 3 or 4 hours long and I don't care. I just don't like to go see a movie that barely 2 hours long and come out feeling cheated because there was something missing or I felt like it just didn't do enough entertain.
So very true.
Sadly we feel that way a lot.....movie theaters don't like long movies because that means less showings.
I'll wait for the official announcement. Just over 2 hours seems too short. 3 hours sounds more realistic at this point.
if it is the shortest in the franchise, I guess that kinda ruins hopes of (SPOILER) Band eventually killing Batman. I think (SPOILER) Superman Doomsday barely got away with their storyline in their time frame....
Realistically, we aren't getting a 3 hour movie. 3 hour movie = less tickets sold. It's all just speculation at this point, the movie hasn't even been screened for the MPAA, I doubt they have even come close to a final cut yet.
Stuart Oldham said it's over 2 hours.
