Trailer: The Dark Knight Rises

Published on December 19th, 2011


Okay Guys to quote the Joker, “Heeeere weee go.”  This morning Apple officially posted the trailer to The Dark Knight Rises HERE.  I was fortunate enough to see it this past weekend with my screening of Mission Imposible: Ghost Protocol. It was great, I’ve never seen that many people applaud a trailer…. outside of Comic Con’s Hall H. Like the Prologue (You can read my thoughts on the IMAX Prologue HERE) Nolan is playing his cards very close to his chest. This teaser reveals very little story but the tone and the escalation of stakes are very clear.

Here are some of my quick thoughts. Michael Caine’s line about not protecting Bruce is heartbreaking. Seeing Bruce with a cane…. very intriguing. Commissioner Gordon being forced into retirement…very Dark Knight Returns and I’m okay with that. Bane’s voice is much easier to understand here than it was during the Prologue and that line “When Gotham is in ashes, you have my permission to die.” just EPIC. Anne Hathaway’s Selena Kyle looks very much in control, as she should be. Last but not least, the shot of Bane and Batman about to throw down gave me chills. So enough of me talking about it, what do you guys think???
