Movies That Have Everything Preview: Batman - The Dark Knight Rises


The gang at Pittsburgh Underground had made a pact - we would not indulge ourselves in anything Batman as it was being filmed in our fair city of Pittsburgh. The main reason being that before the original Tim Burton Batman had been released in 1989, the PU gang had acquired a copy of it's script, of course reading it from cover to cover before viewing it in the theater. This made for the most surreal experience of our movie going lives as we knew what was going to be said from each character and what would happen from moment to moment, giving us a feeling of faux precognition the first 126 minutes in which we viewed the blockbuster (I say first because we went back to the theater many more times to rewatch it than we want to admit).

Fast forward 23 years to Christopher Nolan's take on our favorite hero which premieres today at theaters across the country, rounding out the trilogy in Batman: The Dark Knight Rises. Christian Bale reprises the role of Batman along with Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth, and Gary Oldman as the BEST Commissioner Gordon we've seen in years. Joining him are Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman) and Tom Hardy as Bane, the villian hellbent on giving Gotham City the old one-two punch! Check out the trailer below:

Pittsburgh Underground is opening the flood gates on Batman today as well! We'll be at the theaters this weekend for the Bat-tastic experience and to celebrate we wanted to also include a BUNCH of behind the scenes footage shot here in Pittsburgh. So click below to view the MOVIE MAGIC!!!
