The MTV Movie Awards reveal lots of cool new footage from The Dark Knight Rises, plus news on a marathon and the film's run-time!

06.04.2012

"Let the games begin!"

It's go time for WB, as the studio is hellbent on releasing every single bit of promo for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES that it can between now and its July 20th release date.

So today we've got a lot of Batman goodies to give you, most notably a brand new video/trailer of sorts that was played during tonight's MTV Movie Awards. The great-looking footage is mostly new material, all scored to a terrific piece of music that I really liked (and I hope is part of the film's actual score). Be sure to check out below. There's also a new TV Spot that's been released which you can find further down on the page.

Meanwhile, AMC Theatres has announced two things of note: First, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES is listed as having a run-time of 2 hours and 45 minutes. If you were one of those people that complained THE DARK KNIGHT was too long... well, you're probably not gonna want to do this next thing: AMC will begin selling tickets on June 11th at 12:00pm EDT for a "DARK KNIGHT Marathon" which will take place on July 19th. If you're a disciple of Batman and/or Christopher Nolan, you're gonna want to get in on this pronto.

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES opens everywhere July 20th.

Synopsis: When Commissioner Gordon (Gary Oldman) stumbles upon a plot to destroy the city from within, Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) gets back into action as the Batman. Waiting for him is the mysterious Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway) and Bane (Tom Hardy), a lethal adversary on a crusade to tear apart Batman's legacy piece by piece.

Some Nolan disciples here are flat out delusional. You'll see what you want to see. The recent footage shown on the MTV Movie Awards was absolutely laughable. Everyone has to be wondering, has this franchise become a parody of itself?

That scene where Catwoman says "behind you" and then there's Batman upside down actually made me laugh out loud. All the Sadomasochism garb and those quick cuts are something we'd see at past MTV Movie Awards when they would mock a film. TDKR mocked

delusional, sadomasochism? Damn man, check out Mr. vocabulary here. You don't sound cool bud, sorry, and what you say makes absolutely no sense, it's a trailer, hyping a movie, adding fun things in to get people excited.

You have the Billy Madison penguin as your avatar, so what you say means nothing.

Cool guy trying to be different FAIL

I thought I was the only one who couldn't seem to grasp at the plot of this film. When I see these clips I'm left stunned.

It's only now that I realize Bane's voice is based on Baron Underbheit from "The Venture Bros." (Not that that's a bad thing)

Nothing new can't be said that hadn't been said before, only this....That background music is EPIC!! These music and scores from all the trailers & clips of TDKR alone can blow every other movie this year out of the water.

MOVIE OF THE SUMMER

This is going to be THE movie of the summer. I respect the avengers for all the success it is getting but I was disappointed big time in it. Nolan is going to deliver a hell of a film. I love that with all the trailers and tv spots I still have no idea what he's got up his sleeve. With the Avengers I felt like I saw the whole movie in the trailers, hell the whole last battle was basically shown before the movie even came out. There is still so much of TDKR that we haven't seen. I can't

There is still so much of TDKR that we haven't seen. I can't wait.

On a side note did anyone actually watch the MTV movie awards when they presented this? They had a kickass montage of the first two films and Bale actually got choked up seeing Ledger on the screen. It was kind of heart breaking.

the score was used in the prologue, so it will definitely be in the movie.

It's my guess that marketing knows fans would be all over this since it was announced, they are building anticipation to a peak for the general/casual audience.

Fuck me in the beard...

This movie could be 6 hours long and I'd probably still enjoy the shit out of every minute.

Just out of curiosity, what was The Dark Knight Returns reference? I didn't catch it :-/

Yeah, right before the big 'splash page' of Bruce Wayne first appearing as Batman in the comic...the previous page has two cops...one rookie one grizzled vet, chasing a getaway car with a couple of Two-Face's goons. The rookie sees something strange, the vet sees it too and smiles to himself, saying 'you are in for a show tonight.'

I've been surprised with how they've handled the tv spots and trailers with this thing so far. Not only do they look fantastic but I still can't figure out what the fuck is going on, and that's exactly where you want to be walking into an event such as TDKR.

Still on the fence with Hardy? Got a name for ya:

BRONSON.

Saw it last month and I consider it the only performance of 2008 every bit as good as Ledger's was. See it, and you'll know EXACTLY why Nolan choose Hardy.

This Bane looks and sounds like a cross between Darth Vader and Terminator.. My only issue is that he looks kind of smaller in comparison to Batman. In the fight of the trailer he practically jumps in some kind of MMA move in order to cause more damage to Batman in the face and in the final showdown this difference is more obvious. But it's just me probably. This movie will be the king of 2012, no doubt!!

People saying Hardy is "too small"...

..."just don't fuckin' get it," to quote another actor from the film. He's not a big guy - slightly under average height - but Nolan couldn't have chosen a better actor to have his face covered for 2 hrs and 45 minutes. Hardy implies so much with his eyes alone, a real ferocity and rage and violence, and anyone who's seen 'The Take' etc. will agree. When you see the shot of his back in that clip, it's ferocious. No, he doesn't look like some ridiculous exaggerated bodybuilder -- but he looks

No, he doesn't look like some ridiculous exaggerated bodybuilder -- but he looks like a practical killer, a man who trained his body for more practical purposes, not for aesthetic appeal but so he could quickly pummel you to death. If Hardy doesn't win people over I'll take all this back, but come next month all the naysayers will remember why they were proven wrong when they complained about Ledger, too.

Opinions, please?

I haven't watched this new footage yet, even though I'm absolutely dying to. But I'm on a complete "spoiler-free" crusade here. I've refused to watch the 6 minute prologue, although I have seen every trailer/tv spot that's come out. My question is, does this give out any new details on plot points or does it give out any scenes that you can tell are some of the best the movie has to offer (example: the countless parade of clips released before the avengers)? Or is this more of a glorified

If you're just dying for some new footage, that clip is pretty much another trailer. If at all, it's only gotten me even more hyped, even though my hype level is at 10 =)

Well if you've seen ever tv trailer spot thats come out, i don't see what the difference is, and if your on a spoiler free crusade, why not hold out till july 20th all together? I know this doesn't help, but everything I've seen trailer related has been wonderful, and Nolan doesn't really reveal anything except goodness.

Thanks, those were the two responses i needed to finally give in and watch it! Basically i just wanted to know whether they're TOO revealing. I trusted that the trailers would get me more hyped without showing me too much, but i dont want to see complete scenes just yet, such as the prologue. But studboi was right, this was pretty much another trailer, and it was great!

"Oh boy, you're in for a show tonight, son!"

That first clip is the best piece of promotion for this film to date. It really ramps everything up, and you can easily feel the scale and gravity that some feel was missing from earlier trailers. Also, Anne Hathaway's Catwoman is growing more and more on me. I really love that moment with the guard, "he's behind you". It's little bits of character like that the Nolans are ultimately really good at writing. And more Sean Connery-voiced Bane! Even
