CORRECTION: Collider has spoken with WB, IMAX and Steve’s best friend’s sister’s boyfriend’s brother’s girlfriend who heard from this guy who knows this kid who’s going with a girl who saw Ferris pass out at 31 Flavors last night, and they’ve issued a retraction stating that their original story was wrong. (Take that “friend of an IMAX projectionist.”) So depending on where you fell on the whole can/can’t understand Bane fiasco of 2011, rest assured that nothing has changed. He’s still talking through a goddamn mask.
Original post: Remember that time that people complained about needing subtitles for
Attack the Block Bane’s (Tom Hardy) dialogue in The Dark Knight Rises? I didn’t get it either, but according to a friend of a friend of an IMAX projectionist who wrote into Collider, Warners has sent out new sound reels for the prologue that’s playing before Ghotocol right now.
Apparently the dialogue hasn’t been altered at all, as per Christopher Nolan‘s claim that he wouldn’t change it, but the ambient noise has been reduced so that Bane can be heard a bit more clearly. So, there you go.
This whole situation seemed a bit ridiculous, but hopefully the compromise is something that Warners, Nolan and the fans can all appreciate. No word yet on whether Rooster Cogburn from the Coens’ True Grit and Bane will do a cross-over sequel.
