Screening this week in the US with prints of Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, iTunes Trailers has now posted the full trailer for Christopher Nolan’s epic conclusion to his Batman saga, The Dark Knight Rises. It turns out, it’s all about a young man who achieves great things in the football stadium against great odds.

The little indie gem will star Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman and Morgan Freeman.

What surprised us the most was how underwhelmed we were. Sure it has explosions and all, but…oh, who are we kidding. Bring on 2012!

The Dark Knight Rises is released on 19 July 2012 in Australia from Roadshow.
