BATMAN. Robert Pattinson stars as the masked vigilante in the new Batman movie, in theaters this Wednesday. Before its release, the first reviews fell.
[Mis à jour le 1er mars 2022 à 14h51] The Batman is expected at the turn: after the success of the trilogy of Christopher Nolan, many fans wondered about a return of the dark knight to the cinema. The choice of Robert Pattinson to play Bruce Wayne did not reassure some, who remember, wrongly, his unloved appearance in Twilight without thinking of his more daring forays into auteur cinema (Good Time, The Lighthouse…). Before the release of Matt Reeves’ film this Wednesday, March 2, 2022, the first press reviews have been published. And they have something to reassure the most skeptical spectators.
The Batman garners 87% positive reviews on the review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. In France, the critics are also conquered. First believes that this thriller is “an undeniable success of incarnation and aesthetics”, deploring, however “a scenario which struggles to rise to the same level”. For the specialized magazine Cinemateaser, the feature film is “a radical and imposing gesture”, “anchored in a solid plot but firmly directed by the emotions of its characters”. The spectators will find themselves immersed in a thriller, discovering the Batman investigator that the seventh art had hitherto only little evoked. Still mired in his youthful traumas, the masked vigilante seeks revenge by fighting crime in an ultra-realistic and dark Gotham, even more so than Christopher Nolan’s proposal a decade before. The JDD salutes for its part “a violence, a brutality and a cruelty worthy of the thrillers of the 1970s, despite an action ultimately quite static which does not avoid lengths”. Fans should definitely be wowed by this new cinematic take on The Batman.
“The Batman” is probably the most anticipated film of the beginning of 2022. Fans of the masked vigilante will be able to discover Robert Pattinson (Twilight, Tenet, The Lighthouse…) in this role from March 2, 2022. The most impatient can order their place for the day of its release or take advantage of the previews offered in several cities in France. To find out where and when to see The Batman in advance, check the screenings of the film and pre-order your place.
“The Batman” is an action and crime film directed by Matt Reeves (Planet of the Apes: Clash and supremacy). The feature film follows Bruce Wayne in his quest for revenge against crime in Gotham, with the help of Alfred (Andy Serkis) and Commissioner Gordon (Jeffrey Wright). Until he finds himself investigating a series of crimes affecting the city’s elite. On his way, he will meet Catwoman / Selina Kyle (Zoë Kravitz), The Penguin (Colin Farrel, unrecognizable), or even the Riddler (Paul Dano).
Synopsis – It’s been two years since Bruce Wayne donned the Batman costume and fought crime in Gotham. When a killer goes after the city’s elite, disseminating clues for the masked vigilante, Batman discovers what’s really going on in Gotham. To unmask the culprit of these sadistic crimes, he will join forces with Selina Kyle (Catwoman).
The Batman by Matt Reeves had already taken advantage of the DC FanDome event at the end of August 2020 to unveil a first video teaser. We discovered a younger Bruce Wayne than those to whom the cinema has accustomed us. He seems to be struggling with the Riddler, played by Paul Dano. These first images are also the opportunity to discover Zoë Kravitz in the role of Catwoman, but also Colin Farrell in Penguin as well as Jeffrey Wright in Commissioner Gordon.
On the occasion of DC FanDome 2021, an online event aimed at talking about current projects on the DC side, whether in comics, video games, series, or films, Warner unveiled the first official trailer for The Batman which we invite you to discover below.
