Most people know who Robert Pattinson is. After starring in the movie Water for Elephants, he became a bit more famous. Since then, he has appeared in many big-name films like The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 and Mad Max: Fury Road , as well as smaller roles in many others. He’s currently starring in the TV series The Rover. But, before the Twilight movies made him internationally famous, Robert Pattinson was already an established actor. He began acting at a really young age, and has been appearing on TV and in movies ever since. In this article, we’ll discuss one of his earlier movies, which was an adaptation of the famous comic book series Batman. It was released in cinemas all over the world in 2013, and was very well-received critically and financially. So, let’s take a look at some of the facts surrounding this Batman movie so that you can understand the context in which it was released and the critical reception it received.
The Making Of The Film
The Batman film was directed by Matt Reeves, and, unlike most of his other work, this one was based on a comic book series. In fact, it was based on the famous Batman comic book by Bill Finger and Bob Kane. The screenplay was written by James Vanderbilt, who also worked with Reeves on Clive Barker’s Sleigh Bells and The Devil’s Doorway. The director of photography was Matthew Jensen, and the production designer was Michael Corenals. This was the director’s first major feature-length movie, and it showed. The cast was excellent, led by Robert Pattinson, who played the classic superhero Batman, and also featured Michael Caine, among others.
The Release Date
The Batman film went into production in early 2012, and was released in cinemas all over the world on August 9th, 2013. It was the 13th official installment in the long-running Batman series, with the previous 12 films being released between 1989 and 1992. This was an important film for Warner Brothers, as it was the first time that the studio had released a film with Robert Pattinson in the title role since Batman Returns in 2006. Even before then, however, they had been trying to get Pattinson to play the role for a while. In one of the more memorable scenes from the movie, Alfred walks into a room and sees Bruce Wayne lying on the couch with a pillow over his head (as in the classic comics). Alfred asks him, “Master Wayne, do you want anything?” and he replies, “A bowl of punch, por favor.” Alfred then asks, “Do you want anything to drink?” and he replies, “A large Scotch.”
The fact that Warner Brothers released this movie a few weeks before The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 was no coincidence. Both movies were in the same year, and it’s likely that the filmmakers behind Batman wanted to capitalize on the early hype surrounding the final installment of the Hunger Games series. They certainly achieved that goal, as Batman was one of the most talked-about movies in August 2013.
The Critical Reception
The Batman film was met with near-universal acclaim. It currently holds a score of 94% on the review-aggregating website CinemaScore, which measures the opinion of moviegoers after they’ve seen a film. That’s a really high score, and it’s not unusual for a movie to score in that range when it was widely anticipated by critics and audiences alike. The film also received many awards and won several, including the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, which it also won at the Academy Awards a few weeks later.
While it wasn’t a box office success, the movie still managed to make a profit. It cost $55,000,000 to make, and it brought in $85,000,000 worldwide, so it probably wasn’t a total loss for the studios involved. However, that’s probably not the type of film Warner Brothers wants to make anymore. These days, they’ve started making lower-budgeted movies, and they even opted not to market and distribute Batman, opting instead to leave that to smaller, independent companies like Open Road.
Many people believe that Batman is one of the best adaptations of a comic book series ever made. When it comes to portraying the superhero, Pattinson is at the top of his game. He displays an impressive range, as he goes from a serious, introspective portrayal of the Dark Knight, to a goofball version of the character, complete with slapstick humor. He gives a brilliant performance, and it’s easy to see why this is considered one of the best Batman movies. When it comes to matching wits with the Joker, however, he’s up against it.
There are many standout scenes from the movie. One of the earlier scenes depicts Batman visiting the Dent Asylum and encountering a character that will become very important to the ending of the movie. Another memorable scene, which has become a sort of iconic representation of the Batman franchise, shows Batman escaping from the Penguin by driving a truck into a lake. The scene is complete with an image of Batman sitting in a boat, drinking a beer. It’s also worth noting that the film’s most popular meme, a picture of Pattinson’s character with the Joker’s iconic smile, was inspired by this scene.
The fact that the majority of the film’s dialogue is in English adds to its universality. The language barrier doesn’t seem to phase the viewers at all; in fact, it probably helps that the script was written in English, making the story accessible to all viewers. The Joker speaks with a German accent in the famous card-game scene, but it’s not difficult to follow what he’s saying – and it’s all in English! This is also one of the few Batman films where the Riddler doesn’t play an important role. He’s present in the movie, but he doesn’t steal the spotlight from Bruce Wayne as he does in many other adaptations.
Why Make A Comic Book Adaptation?
Since 1938, DC Comics has published a series of comic books that have featured Batman. Over the years, these comics have become extremely popular, and have spawned a large, passionate fan base. In 1989, Warner Brothers decided to adapt one of these comics for the big screen, and they chose Batman because it was the most popular of the series. They also believed that it was high time for Batman to make a comeback, since he’d been absent from the big screen for a long while. It was decided that the rebooted Gotham was a better fit for the caped crusader than his previous home, Earth.
One of the reasons why Batman is so popular is because it features some incredible comic book adaptations – and that’s not just limited to the titular character. The movie features many cameos by famous comic book characters, including several iconic images of Spiderman. This is also one of the few superhero movies where the costume isn’t white. It’s actually a really good adaptation of a popular comic book – and it makes sense that it was directed by a respected industry professional, who had previous experience in making movies based on other comics:
“I always go for the best actor for the role, and it doesn’t matter whether it’s a small or large role,” Matt Reeves said in a press conference before the film’s premiere. “I want to work with the best, and, fortunately, these days, you can find those people.”
“You really can’t go wrong with [Robert Pattinson] in anything,” added producer Stephen McFeely. “He’s extremely talented, he’s extremely easy to work with, and he brings a gravitas to the role that is perfect for the character.”
