Warner Bros. Launches ‘For Your Consideration’ Awards Campaign For ‘The Dark Knight Rises’

The year is coming to a close and that means studios will be releasing and pushing the films they feel should be considered for some major awards. One studio making such a push is Warner Bros., a studio with a literal treasure trove of movies that could be in the running to the top prize. Films like Magic Mike and Argo could be some serious contenders, as could The Hobbit, but WB is launching a campaign to put The Dark Knight Rises on the awards season map.

It’s not a huge surprise to see WB make such a move, after all The Dark Knight Rises was one of WB’s highest grossing films of the year. But could the film win Best Picture? It depends on who you ask of course, but in my opinion it does stand a chance against something like Argo, Zero Dark Thirty, or more of this year’s films that have yet to be released.

The Dark Knight Rises does have a shot at a few technical awards though. Long-time producing partner Wally Pfister has done a tremendous job with the film and using IMAX cameras only enhanced the cinematography and experience of watching the film on the big screen, as well as in IMAX. The Dark Knight Rises marks the first time that Hans Zimmer has conducted an installment of the Dark Knight trilogy all on his own, and I have to say it is easily the best soundtrack of the three.

The film’s award site has the entire “For Your Consideration” list. So check it out. The Academy Award nominees will be announced on January 10, 2013 and the awards show will be broadcast live on February 24, 2013.

Do you think that The Dark Knight Rises has a chance at winning Best Picture?
