The Dark Knight Rises Occupies Wall Street And YouTube

The Dark Knight Rises Occupies Wall Street And YouTube

Christopher Nolan has always been notoriously tight-lipped about his productions, and I think if it were up to him, he'd much rather not even come out with a trailer for a movie as big as The Dark Knight Rises, his hugely anticipated new Batman release arriving July 20 next year.  Nolan knows that surprise is a nice luxury to have when someone first watches a movie.  The less you know, the better the ability of the filmmaker to entertain.  I'm not sure what Nolan thinks about all this amateur footage being shot around Wall Street.  For all I know, some of these people are planted to take video that looks amateurish, like it's something we shouldn't be seeing, but still obscure enough that we don't know exactly what's happening, and the studio pretends that they never wanted the publicity.

The Dark Knight Rises Is All Over YouTube

Recently, a video heavy on cool vehicles, a glimpse at Catwoman, and a battle raging on the streets hit YouTube:

That's got some cool stuff in it, but having no context, it doesn't ruin anything.  No spoilers!  But you know, it's not the only Dark Knight Rises video.  You can weed through all sorts of cool stuff from the production of this movie.  You can even see Batman fight Bane, which I'm shocked doesn't have more than a million views right now:

This video gives you a peek into how huge this production is.  Yeah, it's your everyday, run-of-the-mill, full-scale riot on Wall Street, but it spans a great deal of real estate:

This is just a sampling of what's out there.  You could spend a lot of time watching the Dark Knight Rises production on YouTube right now.  Isn't the age of online video great?

    The age of the internet ruins what was once some surprise and awe while experiencing an event movie like this the first time. Imagine seeing leaked photos of the dinosaurs from Jurrasic Park months before the film came out? There are less then a million views because some out there are like me, they want to enjoy films as they are intended.

    What happened to the notion that the real excitement was in the anticipation and the build-up? Everybody wants instant gratification these days. Well, I will not watch and hope others follow. I can wait and will enjoy the anticipation.
