The Year In Movie GIFs 2012
As the release of the third installment of Christopher Nolan's game-changing Batman trilogy approached, some fans were so fervent in their anticipation that they threatened any critic who dared say a word against it. But once The Dark Knight Rises actually opened in July, audiences divided over the franchise's finale, in which Alfred spots Bruce Wayne alive and well in a café with Selina Kyle. Some decided this was a satisfying happy ending after so much tragedy. Others insisted Bruce is dead and this scene was a wishful thinking projection on Alfred's part, while the rest bemoaned the whole sequence as sloppy and sentimental. Half a year has gone by. The film has become a bona fide blockbuster earning more than $1 billion worldwide. Yet this is still a touchy subject to many devoted fans of The Dark Knight movies.
