Now I don’t laugh at people that have issues translating language. However, some of the English sentences I have come across and heard or read have been hilarious! We all know about poor translations in film and video games, many are infamous among fans.
Take a look at this eBay auction I came across for Dark Knight Rises SDCC exclusive memorabilia. I could resist cracking up. I mean no offense but I just it funny. “Up for bid is the last batman.” What? The last batman?
I Googled to see if there was some story to match the one in this description (or as best I could decipher from it) about Christian Bale asking Nolan to have a moment alone with the Batman suit after the last scene was shot.
I indeed found an article with a quote from Bale:
“It was a very similar thing. We were doing this scene as Batman. It was with Anne (Hathaway) as Catwoman on a roof in New York, in Manhattan. And I was wrapped and the whole movie was a wrap. I just went down and sat in a room and I realized… this is it. I’m never going to be taking this cowl off again. So again, I said, ‘Can you please leave me alone for 20 minutes?’ With that moment it was with the realization of everything we’d done and a real pride of having achieved what we had set out to do.”
“..so sad bidding.”
Not as sad as the ending price was for the auction. But the description is priceless!
