A Dark Knight Rises trailer and a Hobbit teaser before Sherlock Holmes?

Nov. 22, 2011by:

I was already looking forward to SHERLOCK HOLMES: GAME OF SHADOWS as it's one film I didn't mind getting a sequel. But now there might be an entirely new reason to be anticipating its release.

According to Variety, there is a possibility that there will be both a DARK KNIGHT RISES trailer and a HOBBIT teaser ahead of the film. Often times studios will put their most anticipated trailers in front of big films, but two at once? It's a must see.

This would seem to be different than the six minute DARK KNIGHT RISES into sequence that will accompany IMAX prints of MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL, and it would seem to indicate that it would be our first full length trailer that would feature more than just Gary Oldman in a bed and scenes from old movies.

As for THE HOBBIT? That one might be more up in the air, but I wouldn't expect all that much if it's claiming to be a teaser. Hopefully it's more than just a few seconds of footage with a voiceover, but fans would probably clamor over that even if that was the case.

Extra Tidbit: I still remember getting chills when I saw the first DARK KNIGHT trailer. I must have watched that 30 times.

I'll agree with you on the chills.

When the Joker said "Like me", holy puepty poop was that scary.

Nobody will be able to enjoy Sherlock Holmes 2 in my theater because I will probably spend all 2 hours screaming with Nerd-Glee.

I'm with you. Was already planning to watch Sherlock, but if Dark Knight Rises and Hobbit are attached, then all the better. Even if the Hobbit teaser is just a teaser, I hope we get a glimpse of Smaug. I am super curious about his look.

I remember giving the number to WB website and the next few seconds there's a call from Jim Gordon asking me to be in one of his few trusted men going against The Joker. That was a clever viral marketing.

I'm down for the trailer, but I really wish they'd stop pretending that only IMAX viewers matter to them. Why don't we all get to see it? I'm planning to drive about 350 miles to see the film in Imax anyway, so getting a taste of what I'm in for would make it better for people like me. I get that they wanna show off the new tech, but make it seeable to us all!

Just like I Am Legend and The Dark Knight, it's because WB wants to showcase the fact that the film was shot in IMAX format. Not going to be the same effect showing the footage on some crappy conventional theatre.

I guarantee the punch that the TDK IMAX prologue had would have been reduced if seen in a conventional theatre. It's simply not the same image quality.

I have no real interest in seeing Sherlock or MI:4 but these companies are really trying to pull even guys like me who have no plans of seeing these films I'm the theater in.

Sherlock Holmes 2 is going to be a great movie. The trailer alone is epic. And is probably the last BIG movie I am looking forward to before this year is over.

Having The Dark Knight Rises trailer before Holmes just makes going to the theater all that more special.

He was thumb downed because some people here can't stand someone saying he doesn't HATE Twilight (look at the ho sooo mature sentence from Halflife). To think that, only a few years ago people like us were asking others to be a little more open minded!!!

Cathelotte,

I agree, I want people to be open minded to GOOD movies, not the shit storm that plagues theaters today. Is that everyone's fallback?? "It's his opinion!"

Well I understand that, but if someone told you in THEIR opinion they liked humping animals, you'd look at them like a sick ass freak, but it's not OK to say anything if someone likes SHIT movies, and defends them?
