DARK KNIGHT RISES: Fan-made Trailer Contest To Be Judged By Christopher Nolan
Finally, a reason to obsess over DKR clips.
You barely need to be any type of a cynic to find Warner Brothers’ “Create Your Own Dark Knight Rises Trailer” contest to be tacky and maybe even just a touch sadistic. First off, the only group that would likely be interested in taking part in such a “competition” would be the group that has spent the past several months huddled in darkness hyper-scrutinizing every frame of every clip, trailer, and surreptitiously-garnered location pic to be released onto the web to date. And that’s saying something, as there has been a veritable mushroom cloud of material released into the hypesphere over the last calendar year.
Now, Warner Brothers seeks to indoctrinate the hypees into the ranks of the hypers, by taking all that they have absorbed in those lonely wee-hours sessions, and fashion their own interpretation from a spate of clips provided by the studio. Is there no concern that additional obsession over clip edits might actually cause instances of cerebral hemorrhaging? Are we trying to get blood to drip down the tips of their earlobes?
There are 27 such clips to choose from at the contest site, which participants can coordinate with a variety of music “stems” from Hans Zimmer’s score. Key words to this little piece of the campaign, announced today on Collider? “Christopher Nolan will choose the winner, although there is no guarantee that the spot will actually air on television.” Time’s a-wastin’, Nolan. The Caped Crusader is slated to start socking out bad guys in just over a month.
The good news is that a lot of the interested parties likely have experience putting together trailers, judging by the number of widely circulated fan-made clips that were culled together from the first two films in the series. Access to quality audio and video clips is a luxury to which this most die-hard group of fans might take an instant liking. The proof will be in the pudding.
As for the actual film, The Dark Knight Rises will hit theaters on July 20th.
