Batman Begins!
« on: May 01, 2005, 01:28:16 AM »

Here is the trailer for the Batman Begins trailer.

I have to admit beforehand I thought this film would be the best of the Batman films, but the trailer doesn't come across to me that way. But with people like Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman in the line up the script must be good. Also I thought beforehand Christian Bale would have been perfect as Bruce Wayne, but my confidence in this is a little wavering after seeing the trailer. So...check it out and tell me and the others your thoughts on this.  :P

havent seen the trailer, but I have liked each batman film less and less since the first one. the second one was ok too. I have heard about this and know its a prequel but I dont think it will be very good, judging by the last few batman movies....... they are too kiddy now ifn ya be knowing what I mean?

It doesn't seem 'kiddy' in my opinion. A lot darker, although I do like a good bit of action and the film seems to be lacking a lot of that. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

I think it looks really good, can't wait to se it. It's definitly gone back to it's dark roots which is a good thing because the past two films weren't that great.

Everone here keeps comparing this film to the previous efforts, which i suppose is inevitable. But this is a completely stand alone film which isnt related to the previous films.

Also it has entire different cast and new director called christopher nolan, who did the excellent Memento.

having said all that it will probably be crap......haha

Well they were all stand alone films if you think about it. Well apart from 'Batman' and 'Batman Returns'.

Look at this film as the prequel to 'Batman' it shows bruce wayne in his younger years, how he became batman.

Batman Begins is not a part of the previous film franchise. It is stand alone, or a totally different interpretation of the comics, much in the same vein that the (p**s-weak) Catwoman movie was a different interpretation of the ilk in Batman Returns.

This is to be a 'fresh' start for the Batman franchise, and I don't expect we will see any Flourescent-light-fetishists Dr Freezes, zippy-dipsy Poison Ivy's or anything like that. Yes, there will be merchandise (there is for everything these days), but Batman Begins is a more sour-faced, dark and gothic approach, perhaps more so than what Tim Burton did for the franchise in the first two films.

The director has stated that this Batman the franchise has received a bit of a reality check, with a Batcape less than reliable as a gliding device, and maybe a more tank-like Batmobile would do better at fighting crime than a street-machine that has more bling-bling than what Snoop Doggy Dogg could fit on a fleet of Rolls Royces. This could well be the Batman as we need to see him; darker and edgier, instead of the poppy kiddie versions of Batman Forever and Batman and Robin.

Christopher Nolan is credited for Memento and was applauded for his ability to let the audience decide if a movie is good after the fact, not before. Something Joel Schumacher and Jan Dubont should have figured long ago . . .

They should've done a film based on The Dark Knight Returns... absolutely amazing story.

I have watched the trailer in the cinema and it did not really amaze me. The people behind me were saying things like "Another Batman movie, it will be crap as the last 2 were". I think this is the general opinion before the films even out unfortunatly.

I would love to see "The Dark Knight Returns" as a movie.  I'm not much into comics, but story is one of my favs as is pretty much the image I expect of the Batman world.  I think  the first couple of films came closest to that.

I'm hopeful that the series can be saved by this new approach.  Same for Superman.

But, these days, it's going to take something really big to get me to the theater.  Unless the reviews on the board here say it's awesome, I'll probably be putting it straight into my DVD queue.

I think it was last week, during the season finalie of Smallville, they had an extended preview (like 5+ minutes) of Batman Begins.

I have to say it looks freakin amazing.  And it's got Liam Neeson.

I like Smallville....there should be a topic about the show or at least Superman around here. I haven't seen one though.

It's look pretty good. People who did not like the latest ones should give it a chance.

I saw the latest Batman film today and loved it, so much better than the older 4 films. Quality actors in the film as well :D

I have a feeling this is going to be the best Batman movie yet (which isn't saying a hell of a lot).

Its got some real credible actors Michael Caine & Morgan Freeman, and I liked the premise.  I'm actually looking forward to this but it will take us a month longer to get it here, but it's free, and they sell beer in the theater - so no complaints.
