Over the next few days many movie goers will start the Summer Movie Season off right by checking out The Avengers, and rightfully so as we told them in last weeks preview that it has major Peacock potential. If they are lucky, as they settle into their seats and the lights dim, they will be entertained with a trailer of the most anticipated movie of the summer…
The Dark Knight Rises! Look there are lots of great Summer movies that we will recap the rest of next week, but The Dark Knight Rises is going to be the most Peacock movie of the Summer hands down. It is the final film of the Batman trilogy (Batman Begins and The Dark Knight) led by Christopher Nolan (also known for Inception and Memento), and it all ends with Batman (Christian Bale) having an epic showdown (no not an epic meltdown) with the latest bad guy du jour Bane (Tom Hardy).
This isn’t your normal super hero movie though…Nolan takes these films to dark places, with disturbing characters, and mind blowing special effects. Bane is every bit as creepy and delusional as the Joker (Heath Ledger) was in the previous film, and adding Anne Hathaway (Catwoman) to the mix certainly can’t hurt especially if she spends the majority of the movie in skin tight latex. Many of the fine actors from the previous films come back into play as well with Liam Neeson, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, and Michael Caine resuming their supporting roles.
You don’t have to take our word for it though…just take a look at the trailer below to see for yourself, and we’ll see you come July 20th weekend at the Peacock Movie Event of the Summer.
