Dark Knight Rises Looms Over Gotham

Dark Knight Rises Review – Disappointing

With just 10-days to go for the release of Dark Knight Rises in the U.S., the publicity machine for the newest film in the Batman series is in full gear.

This morning as I was walking around Midtown Manhattan my eyes repeatedly fell upon huge posters and ads for the film.

They’re all over the place.

Billboards in Times Square, on buses and where not.

And why not?

After all, the Batman films are set in Gotham City (a fictional stand-in for New York City).

By the way, the Wiki profile of the film mentions that some pieces of Dark Knight Rises were shot in Jodhpur, which in case you schmucks didn’t know, is part of Mera Bharat Mahaan.

Bet you didn’t know Batman’s connection to Jodhpur!

Christopher Nolan directed Dark Knight Rises, which features Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and my eternal favorites Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine.

The last Batman film, Dark Knight, came out in July 2008 (after Heath Ledger’s untimely death).

    Is “Fifty Shades of Grey” (fastest-selling paperback of all time) in SI’s radar?

    I only came to know of it because of this “news” item.

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    Most definitely not.

    In my not-so-humble-opinion, it has trash written all over it.

    Don’t know if this place is close to you. Hope you are safe!

    Is recession/depression taking its toll? πŸ™

    Too many whackos with too many guns.

    I used to go the late-night (midnight) shows but I guess it’s not safe any more. These shootings can happen anywhere, so random.

    The gun lobby (National Rifle Association) is very powerful and strongly opposes any gun-control law.

    I live about 1,800 miles (2,880 km) from Aurora, CO.
