Apparently the writer was joking around - though it didn't read that way - and the text was yanked.
Anyway, now Variety's Stuart Oldham is saying that The Dark Knight Rises run time is just over 2 hours.
SOURCES: "The Dark Knight Rises" running time is just over 2 hours.— Stuart Oldham (@s_oldham) March 28, 2012
Oldham is Variety's news editor, so let's hope we can take him a little more serious.
By "just over 2 hours," I'm hoping Oldham's source means 2 hours and 59 minutes.
The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters July 20th, 2012 and is directed by Christopher Nolan starring Christian Bale as Batman, Tom Hardy as Bane, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon, Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, Michael Cain as Alfred, Juno Temple and Josh Pence as a young Ra's al Ghul.
