SoundWorks Collection: Sound & Music from 'The Dark Knight Rises'
Even before the movie came out, The Dark Knight Rises was under heavy fire for some seemingly worrisome sound design with the voice of the villain Bane, played by Tom Hardy, as his dialogue was at times indiscernible in the prologue release with the IMAX version of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. In case you haven't noticed, some changes were made between then and the theatrical release (hear a comparison here). Now the SoundWorks Collection goes behind the scenes of both the sound and music in The Dark Knight Rises with composer Hans Zimmer and supervising sound editor and designer Richard King where they talk about Bane's unique voice, the sound of The Bat and much more. Watch it below!
Here's the SoundWorks Collection's featurette on The Dark Knight Rises from Vimeo:
Eight years after The Dark Knight, the terrorist leader Bane arrives in Gotham City, pushing it and its police force to the limits, forcing its former hero Batman to resurface after taking the fall for Harvey Dent.
