Trailer Trash: The Dark Knight Rises

It's time to root through some trailers. What sorts of wonderful things will be alluded to today?

It tells us nothing. A good majority of it is footage from the previous films. Most of the dialogue is Liam Neeson's badass line from Begins. 


It's the first trailer for The Dark Knight Rises! And it shows just enough to get us excited, not the least of which is the tantalizing shot of Batman readying himself for a bout with Tom Hardy's Bane.

Gotham must fall for the Dark Knight to rise. Bring it on!


  1. IMO it's a pretty bad trailer. Almost only old footage from the previous movies, some cheesy monologue from Gary Oldman, TDKR is likely to be a huge disappointment. Ok I'm kidding on that last point :)

  2. It's a great teaser because it frustratingly teases so well. Who doesn't want to see more after this? No one!!

    And I dig the usage of older footage/audio, big time. It gives the feeling that this upcoming film is more than a sequel, it's a part of an over-arching storyline, something even Burton's Batmans didn't do.
