New video comparison of Bane’s original voice and the final cut

The last installment of Christopher Nolan’s trilogy continues to dominate the box office worldwide. The Dark Knight Rises has become the 3rd fastest film to reach the $300 million dollar mark and still currently holds a 87% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Many are heavily praising performances by Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine and even Tom Hardy.

When movie goers first heard Bane speak in The Dark Knight Rises’ IMAX Prologue, many were not too sure about Hardy’s portrayal of the infamous Batman villain. Many cited that his dialogue was hard to understand and Warner Bros. ordered that the audio be fixed before the film was released. Christopher Nolan did not want to change the voice entirely, so he only made some minor tweaks to the sound-mix. Needless to say, the audio was much better when the film was released.

Recently, a video has surfaced comparing the original dialogue from the prologue and the dialogue from the finished film. It’s hard not to notice the vast improvement in the finished audio. You can hardly understand when Bane says, “No, they expect one of us in the wreckage brother,” in the prologue.
