The only way they could do Bane right is if they had a wrestler under the mask, and an actor to dub in his lines. The only two actors with the size and the acting chops to pull of both are Michael Clark Duncan or Ving Rhames, and Bane is a white guy.

So's Kingpin and Duncan did a fine job. Best part of that movie.

Edit: Bane's actually Hispanic.

Fair point.

Bane's a very pale Hispanic, to be fair..

If they do Bane, I think they'd have to go with no mask, no roids, and focus on the idea that he's just a brilliant, deadly tactician raised in a South American hell-hole. Cast Benicio Del Toro and just play him as someone who's just as efficient in hand to hand combat as Bruce.

I say cast Javier Bardem as Bane, personally.

That would be awesome, athough if they are going to just have a distinctive mob boss they may as well go with Black Mask.

Variety reports that the score for The Dark Knight has been disqualified by the executive committee of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences music branch from being considered for an Oscar.

Formal letters to that effect are expected to go out this week to composers Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard, who collaborated on the music.

Their previous collaboration, on Batman Begins, was similarly disqualified in 2005.

According to the trade, the big issue was the fact that five names were listed as composers on the music cue sheet, the official studio document that specifies every piece of music (along with its duration and copyright owner) in the film.

Zimmer previously said that listing multiple names on the cue sheet was a way of financially rewarding parts of the music team who helped make the overall work successful.

Zimmer, Howard and the other three individuals -- music editor Alex Gibson, ambient music designer Mel Wesson and composer Lorne Balfe -- reportedly signed an affidavit stating that the score was primarily the work of Zimmer and Howard.

That apparently wasn't enough for the majority of the committee, which was also supplied with documentation indicating that more than 60%, but less than 70%, of the score was credited to Zimmer and Howard.

Walmart has has an exclusive version of the dvd that comes with a comic book, and Harvey Dent's coin.

http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?...uct_id=10726993

maybe if that was not just a wal-fart exclusive I'd get it but most likely when TDK comes to DVD I'll be getting the Exclusive Steelbook packaging from fye as I did with Iron Man

Do they coin and comic book only come with the single-disc set? I love the Walmart exclusive extras, but I'd rather have a disc of extras.

After looking around on their site, it looks like the coin and comic only come with that version.

On a few sites like Variety there are HUGE For your consideration advertisments for Heath Ledger as best supporting, I'd be surprised if he didn't get a nomination.

The Academy is now saying that the score for this movie is eligible for the Oscars.

Good. Because it's one of the best scores of the past few years in my eyes. Definitely the best of the year.

I don't know if it's just my DVD, but some of the scene-to-scene transitions (such as when Rachel takes the coin from Harvey when he jumps into the paddywagon to the next scene) are sudden and not smoothed out like in the theatre.

I got the single disc at Wal-Mart with the comic book and coin. I'll probably watch all of the DVD extras on youtube, so I didn't bother with the two-disc set. I haven't watched it yet (going to later tonight), but I'll see if I notice any transition problems.

I could care less about the coin and I refuse to pay walfart any money I'd rather get the 2 Disc Edition plus I'm gonna go to fye to get their exclusive Steelbook tin packaging

but that'll be next week when I get paid right now I'll settle for having on iTunes and iPhone :D

My DVD does the same thing as James' during that scene. I can't remember seeing it happen anywhere else, but I could have missed it.

I'm refraining from any DVD purchases until Christmas is over. Perhaps some alternate dimension version of my family will actually buy their version of Des something he actually wants (ie: Blu Ray player) for Christmas and a wormhole will open up sending it into my waiting hands. Just maybe.

It's gotta beat last year...I got a globe. A fucking globe!
