WB Filing Copyright Claim Over Donald Trump’s ‘Dark Knight Rises’ Campaign Video

“Why do we fall sir? So that we can learn to pick ourselves up”

Warner Bros. Pictures is set to take (or possible has already taken) legal action against a video posted on Twitter by President Donald Trump as part of his 2020 reelection campaign.  You read that right. WB is filing a copyright claim against the President of the United States. Hilarious, isn’t it?

The 2-minute video has been viewed over 2 million times on Twitter and retweeted over 28,000 times. The kicker here is that the video uses parts of the score from WB and DC’s 2012 film The Dark Knight Rises.

Talkies Network was able to obtain a statement from the studio in regards to the situation.

“The use of Warner Bros.’ score from ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ in the campaign video was unauthorized,” Warner Bros. said. “We are working through the appropriate legal channels to have it removed.”

The bizarre shows clips of Trump meeting with foreign leaders such as North Korea’s Kim Jong Un and Brazil’s Jair Bolsonaro intercut with footage of former president from President Barack Obama and actors Amy Schumer and Rosie O’Donnell.

Zimmer has been a long-time collaborator of director Christopher Nolan, and scored all three of Nolan’s Batman films. He won a Grammy in 2009 for Best Score Soundtrack with The Dark Knight and was nominated for same award when The Dark Knight Rises premiered back in 2012.
