'Rises' director's cut rumors
I'm not holding my breath. Nolan has yet to release a director's cut for any of his films, so why start with Rises?
The report suggests 30 minutes will be added to film's already two hours and 45 minutes of running time. The extra footage, according to the report, will center on the villain Bane's origin story and more air time with Ra's Al Ghul, the villain from Nolan's first Bat film, "Batman Begins."
Whether or not a director's cut is included doesn't matter to me. If it is, I'll be excited, but I can't wait to make by Nolan/Bat Blu Ray library complete. The DVD/Blu Ray release date for the film is Dec. 7.
