I know, I know, using “rises” in future “The Dark Knight Rises” posts is going to get pretty tiresome after a while. Until that happens, though, here’s the official “The Dark Knight Rises” teaser trailer … rising online. Ahem.

Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ “The Dark Knight Rises” is the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy.

Leading an all-star international cast, Oscar® winner Christian Bale (“The Fighter”) again plays the dual role of Bruce Wayne/Batman. The film also stars Anne Hathaway, as Selina Kyle; Tom Hardy, as Bane; Oscar® winner Marion Cotillard (“La Vie en Rose”), as Miranda Tate; and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, as John Blake.

Returning to the main cast, Oscar® winner Michael Caine (“The Cider House Rules”) plays Alfred; Gary Oldman is Commissioner Gordon; and Oscar® winner Morgan Freeman (“Million Dollar Baby”) reprises the role of Lucius Fox.

The rising begins July 20, 2012.

Cool Stories From Zergnet

  • Eagle Eye

    Not bad, Bane is looking very… Bane’ish!!

  • Juggernaut

    That was amazing!!! I watched the leaked copy a few days ago and have been chomping at the bit since then to see the official version. I was finally able to decipher the entire dialogue between Gordon and Wayne in the hospital scene (I watched the leaked version about sixteen times and couldn’t make it all out)
    The final scene gives me chills every time I watch it.
    Who is the person over Batman’s shoulder in that scene??? Anyone have any guesses?
    Cannot wait for this!!!

    • Eagle Eye

      Ill give it a try, i think that person watching over Batman’s shoulder at the end is a league of shadows scmuck (maybe even Ras himself) or John Blake (the Joseph Gordon Levitt character)!!

      • Juggernaut

        Most likely it is just a League Of Shadows flunkie. To me it looks like a silver/grey, full body suit similar to the one sported by Talia Al Ghul in the comics. I’m hoping that Marion Cottilard is doing double duty like her dad in the first film.

    He looks greenish. Could it possibly be Riddler or Joker? Cause in the comics doesn’t Bane let all of the Arkham inmates out??

    • Juggernaut

      Interesting suggestion! I also thought of Joseph Gordon Levitt playing a duel role. While Nolan insists that Riddler won’t be in the film I can’t see JGL playing a random cop. Hopefully they don’t recast Joker. I don’t see that happening but ya never know!

  • Joelschainm

    Yeahh that’s true. But you know how Nolan likes to keep secrets like that.

    Bane’s mouth thing looks so weird, can’t it be better

  • Anonymous

    When Bane is walking towards batman I actually felt like screaming in excitement. That rarely happens. I can’t wait.

  • Shazam!

    It looks to me like what we’re seeing in that last scene is something of an organized fight – the fight for Gotham if you will – sort of like what we saw when Bane called out Jean in the comics after he broke Bruce’s back. I’m betting the guy we see in the back ground is one of many armed guys present to make sure Batman can’t escape and has to fight Bane. Thoughts???

    • Juggernaut

      That is a possibility…it looks kind of similar to the fortress in the mountains from Begins too. Maybe. Either way it looks epic!
