Bane's Voice Altered In The Dark Knight Prologue
Following complaints from critics, Tom Hardy's dialogue has been changed...
A new audio mix forTom Hardy's villain Bane was difficult to understand.
As we previously reported, director Christopher Nolan was asked by Warner Bros to alter Bane's voice after many critics addressed the sound quality of Hardy's speech when watching the six-minute prologue.
A source has now claimed that IMAX theatres has received a new mix for the clip, where Bane's dialogue appears to have been "cleaned up."
They told Collider: "A friend of mine who is an IMAX projectionist told me they received a new soundtrack for the Dark Knight Rises prologue,"
"He said it's now a combo soundtrack with Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, but the cool thing about this is that they've cleaned up the dialogue,"
The insider continued: "They've gone in and lowered the background noise of the plane and other things, thus making Bane's dialogue clearer and more understandable.
"He asked some people after they left the movie if they could understand Bane and they all said they had no issue understanding him, and were excited for the movie."
Warner Bros are thought to have denied the changes made to Bane's voice, with TheFilmStage revealing that it does appears to have been altered: "Viewers have seen both and reporting that it is indeed a much cleaner version. Looks like they just don't want to own up."
Last month, The Dark Knight Rises broke the record for the most downloaded trailer on iTunes, with the movie itself due to hit cinemas on 20th July 2012.
