Donald Trump in trouble for illegally using 'Dark Knight Rises' in video

Wednesday, April 10, 2019 • Common Comments

The American President has done it again.  This time he has courted trouble by using the music score of 'The Dark Knight Rises' in his 2020 reelection campaign video which he uploaded on Twitter.  Warner Bros is said to be considering to take legal action against Trump for the illegal use of their property but the video has been deleted with a note that "in response to a report by the copyright owner".

It has been pointed out by THR that this is not the first time Donald Trump has used Christopher Nolan's work.  In his 2017 inauguration speech, he had used the dialogue spoken by Batman in 'Dark Knight Rises' with slight alterations.  In the movie, Batman would say "We take Gotham from the corrupt! The rich! The oppressors of generations who have kept you down with myths of opportunity. And we give it to you, the people." 

Trump's version of the Batman dialogue was " "Today's ceremony, however, has a very special meaning because today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C., and giving it back to you, the people."
