Last Friday a rough cut for The Dark Knight Rises was shown off to Warner Bros. executives.
Now we are receiving our first reports on the reception.
Editor's Note: The "4 hour" length seems to have been exaggerated by MTV.
Christopher Nolan's final Batman installment is said to have received — a standing ovation!
Filmmaker Ryan Toussieng tweeted the news:
First cut of The Dark Knight Rises screens for Warners execs... insiders say it received a standing ovation... on a FIRST CUT #fewmoremonths— Ryan Toussieng (@RyanToussieng) March 19, 2012
Obviously the studio would be enthusiastic for Nolan's last Batman movie, but a standing ovation for a rough cut sure says something. With Nolan having time left to pore over the footage, once the final edits are complete, fans of the billion dollar franchise should be quite happy.
