Read a spy's synopsis of the Dark Knight Rises teaser trailer

Jul. 13, 2011by: Paul Tassi

Warner Bros. is using Harry Potter's final bow to showcase the first teaser spot for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES and a description is coming in from quite a few sources of what exactly it contains.

This is from AICN, which received tips from a number of different projectionists, and you can read the description in its entirety below. It would seem to be the usual amount of nothing, with clips from past movies and voiceovers spliced with very minimal new footage.

Read for yourself, and see what you make of it.

Trailer opens with studio logos set on top of the blue flame from Dark Knight. Start panning up some buildings, but cut to the screen card:

EVERY HERO HAS A JOURNEY.

Cuts to a shot from Begins with Bruce walking up to that Village when he's looking for Ra's Screen Card:

EVERY HERO HAS AN END

Ra's (Liam Neeson) voice over: "If you make yourself more then just a man. If you devout yourself to be ideal. And you become something else entirely. A legend Mr. Wayne....A LEGEND!"

Screen Card: THE EPIC CONCLUSION

Cut to Gordon in a hospital bed laying on his side. Looks to be in serious pain. Has A breathing mask on. He is talking to someone. Gordon: "We were in this together, then you were gone.......Now this Evil rises. The Batman.....HAS to come back." (all this is said in a very raspy voice, in much pain)

Bruce/Batman(its not shown who he's talking to, so don't know in which form Bruce is visiting him in. My guess would be as Bruce Wayne) : "What if he doesn't exist anymore?"

This part is the hardest to understand in the entire trailer, I listened to it at least 10 times but the score is over powering here and Gordon is having trouble talking. It sounds as if he says, "Humor me," while trying to laugh. I might be wrong here, full disclosure.

During this quick talk we're shown a shot of the bat cycle when it drives up the ramp from Dark Knight, Gordon destroying the Bat Signal all cut in with the Hospital. As well as super fast flashes of Bane's face.

Pan up crumbing buildings to reveal the Teaser Poster, the camera zooms to the white opening and on an all white screen the title appears. The score reaches a fever pitch before turning over to The chanting from the website.

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

Fades to black and then we see Batman backing away from something, then Bane enters from the left side of the screen. Very quick shot then the trailers done.

Extra Tidbit: Wonder how big Hardy actually got for this role.

I saw the teaser last night and I this is what the exchange between Gordon and Bruce sounded like to me:

"We were in this together... then you were gone. Now this evil... rises. The Batman... HAS to come back."
"What if he doesn't exist?"
"Then you won't... either..."

Cant wait to see the teaser! Shaping up to being a awesome finally! Just saw that the tumbler will be back, so glad to see that as the tumber is the baddest batmobile of all time and would have hated to see a batman forever type batmobile that cant off road or break through cement barriers and such

He doesn't say 'Humor me'
He says "He must. He must"
It's pretty clear.

He's not saying "humor me." I'm pretty sure he's saying "he must, he must" to Bruce saying "What if he doesn't exist anymore." :) Also *spoiler ahead*
That shot of someone climbing out of that deep hole. I wonder if its "the" pit? Must be a reason to include someone climbing out of...whatever it is ;)
Cannot wait for this puppy to hit the net! (legally)

Looks ok I guess. Nothing extra spectacular, but at least we got a glimpse of Bane. This is going to be one heck of a physical confrontation for the Bat (especially considering the Joker already gave him a hard time in TDK).

Looks like Bane might break Gordon's back?
Looks sick- can't wait but I will.

definitely real

Saw the teaser earlier today. It seems legit. While I don't like the screen cards ("the epic conclusion" etc.), I know Nolan probably didn't have complete control. Just isn't his style. However, Bane looks scary big, and it was a good teaser. Cant wait for the official release.

Not surprised really, but I guess we couldn't really ask for much more at this point. Still, I hate when they use flashbacks as a device like this. Even if there isn't much material, I would prefer them not to use useless flashback material. Ah well, it's a teaser and gets the job done. And now the long wait :/

Just saw the teaser trailer, and quite frankly I am disappointed by it. I'm sure the movie will still be good, but the title cards were really cheesy for a Nolan film.

As said before, it's real and this is 100% accurate. And available. Now that WB knows it's leaked, hopefully they'll release it in HD.

Well....accurate except for the "humor me" part. He actually says "He must....he must".

I think the description sounds bad-ass...But

...all I had to see were the letters "A-I-C-N" & the whole aspect of this possibly being true went right out the fucking window.

Yeah, Sorry AICN, but being that the teaser is a whole TWO days away..I think i'll "PATIENTLY" wait to see it myself w/ HP7 instead of getting excited over what could just be #137 in a long list of AICN fake teaser descrip's.

It's a legit description, I just watched it on YouTube before Warner Bros. snatched it.

Saw it

Considering that it is just a teaser trailer, it is pretty good.
There are some nice new scenes in it and we get a look at a massive Bane...Hope they'll post the hq version soon!

I don't understand why WB don't post it online. Do they think people need an extra carrot to lure them to the finale of Harry Potter?

I agree w/ you in that WB should just post that baby online...but I'd also argue that that "extra carrot" worked pretty damn well when it was the "Phantom Menace" teaser.
