A third, and undoubtedly not final, trailer has been released for The Dark Knight Rises. This one gives away much more of the narrative to the film, including Bane’s specific vendetta against the Bat, and much more Catwoman and gadget fanservice. This one comes courtesy of the viral campaign that sits on the official site. So not really viral then, just procrastination.
Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’The Dark Knight Rises is the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, and this little film will star Christian Bale, new cast members Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and returning cast Michael Caine, Gary Oldman and Morgan Freeman.
Is this one trailer too many? It is undoubtedly cool and all, but is there such a thing as too much information before a film? Remember when all we got was a few shots in a magazine and an EPK on prime time television? Either way, this latest trailer casts some doubt over the latest film, feeling less cohesive than the last films and perhaps trying to cram too much into the last chapter before the inevitable reboot. However, all judgment shall be reserved until the release.
The Dark Knight Rises is released on 19 July 2012 in Australia from Roadshow.
