I always love a good opening/closing credit sequence. I compile ’em from time to time and make a favorites list like this one from last year. Seems like the excitement for The Dark Knight Rises just keeps on building. The fan-made posters since have been popping up since almost a year ago and now we’ve got a fan-made opening credits that my hubby just showed me during dinner (via Screenrant). It’s quite impressive so I thought I’d share.
The video is created by a Turkish motion graphics designer by the name of Doğan Can Gündoğdu. It’s reminiscent of the opening credits for David Fincher’s SE7EN which is also seen from the point of view of the villain John Doe.
This video shows the footage of what appears to be some grisly criminal plan that Batman’s juggernaut nemesis Bane is concocting. It’s very forensic CSI-ish and feature the people of Gotham City as portrayed by The Dark Knight Rises‘ cast: Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Anne Hathaway, etc. I love how each of the cast name is introduced and the music by Massive Attack titled Suck Me Up Dub combined with the sounds of rain & thunder creates a disturbingly creepy atmosphere. The breathing sound of Bane under his mask during the footage of Batman’s broken scowl is a nice touch too.
What do you think folks? Does this make you even more excited for Nolan’s final Batman film?
