A small new synopsis surfaces for The Dark Knight Rises

I suppose that this could be considered a spoiler by those of you who wish to remain wholly in the dark as to what's going on in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. If you are indeed one of those people, then please keep your eyes up here and use the power of your peripheral vision to click away.

Alright, here goes: according to Film Cells Ltd., an official licensee of Warner Bros. film products that makes combination film cell/promotional art plaques, this was the plot description sent to them by Warner Bros. to go along with their plaques for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES:  “When Commissioner Gordon stumbles upon a plot to destroy the city from within, Bruce Wayne gets back into action as the Batman. Waiting for him is the mysterious Selina Kyle and Bane, a lethal adversary on a crusade to tear apart Batman's legacy piece by piece.”

So nothing too new there, if only by virtue of the fact that those details were relatively easy to deduce from the trailer.  Even so, the above plot description and accompanying plaque picture have since been removed from Film Cell Ltd.'s website.  Guess someone up on high was none too pleased...

finally some news on TDKR

Even though it is very minor. They really haven't promoted this movie too much since the trailer came out whereas Avengers and Prometheus are just shitting out new footage and trailers without really spoiling anything as well. Please give us a new trailer or something! Anything please!

Huge Batman Fan..

However, after the last Prometheus trailer, I'm more hyped for that.

I'm just not as psyched for this as I was Begins or TDK- Between that lackluster trailer and the surprisingly non-existent viral marketing and the fact that the leaked footage of Bane in the plane didn't wow me... I don't care like I did TDK. I feel bad, but I'm also relieved in a weird way.

I didn't find the trailer to be lackluster at all, I found that it was just perfect in that it didn't show too much and it got me hooked. However, the "no viral" thing is bizzar, seems to be a bad year for marketing, what with John Carter and this.

After seeing the trailers for The Avengers, Prometheus and knowing that the Hobbit is not too far ahead now I am less excited about The Dark Knight Rises. Didn't think I'd be saying that after The Dark Knight but I am and I'm ok with it. The next Batman has fallen to 4th place on my "must see" movies of the year. (maybe even lower than 4th now that I think of it)

Might I add that what I've seen from The Dark Knight Rises really hasn't "wowed" me at all.
I'd even say it did the opposite of "wowed" me. It's very very "meh" to me.

I'm excited to see The Dark Knight rises but considerably less than I am excited to see Prometheus, The Hobbit, The Avengers and Snow White and the Huntsman. Which is a shame really since it's the first (and last) time we'll be seeing Catwoman and Bane in Nolan's Batman universe.

But a lot about TDKR has left me cautiously optimistic. And that trailer... *yawn*

I'm looking forward to seeing a far better trailer where they hopefully don't hold off from showing a better look at Selina as

Yeah, the trailers for Prometheus, The Hobbit and Avengers were just awesome. The TDKR trailer was quite *meh*.

The Hulk... cool!! Space jockey... fantastic!! Imploding football field... seriously?

Why are you hung up on the imploding football field? I don't get it. There are tons of fantastic scenarios featured in the other trailers you mentioned.
