Hans Zimmer has released an open invite to everyone to be a part of The Dark Knight Rises. If you click this link, you will be brought over to a page where Mr. Zimmer invites people to record their take on a chant which wil lbe featured in the film. There’s an example for people to listen to, as well as a message board at the bottom of the page where talkbackers have figured out the phonetic pronunciation of the chant. Here’s a snippet from the page,
“I’m shining the bat-signal up into the sky to call you all!
We need to hear your voices! Now and Loud! We are creating the sound of a worldwide chant. Everyone come and be part of it. It’s easy:
There is no such thing as out-of-tune, no timing we can’t fix later. If you mumble, growl, scream or whisper, it’s all good. Make it yours. If you only get halfway through, no problem! Do it alone, bring your friends, but do it with energy and commitment.
Let your voice be heard and be a part of our adventure!”
I think this is pretty cool. For most of us fans it’s the closest we’ll come to being a part of a film franchise like Batman. I don’t know about you guys, but I will most likely be registering for the site and recording my own chant. I think my voice will have more of a Clark Gable quality.
