The Dark Knight Rises (2012): Update: Rough Cut Not 4 Hours In Length


[[wysiwyg_imageupload:994:]]The internet was on fire yesterday with word that Christopher Nolan’s rough cut for The Dark Knight Rises was four hours long.

Apparently, this isn’t the case as MTV, the source of the original article, has gone back and removed the line of text, and updated with the following editor’s note:

[Ed. Note: A previous mention of a “four-hour rough cut” of “The Dark Knight Rises” was intended as a humorous exaggeration; our columnist did not have any information on the actual length of the director’s rough cut.]

The original text read as follows:

“The Dark Knight Rises is real and finished, presumably in the form of a four-hour rough cut. There’s no official word on the reaction to the screening, as of yet.”

And has been updated to read:

“The Dark Knight Rises” is real and edging toward the picture-locked goal line. There’s no official word on the reaction to the rough-cut screening, as of yet.

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.
