The Dark Knight Rises teaser arrives at last!

07.18.2011

We've been holding off posting bootleg versions of the DARK KNIGHT RISES teaser trailer running before HARRY POTTER this weekend, and our patience has paid off as Warners has finally decided to release a full HD version online.

You can check it out below if you're one of the three people in the country that didn't see Potter this weekend, but be forewarned, it is the very definition of the word teaser, and you won't have much to go on.

It's a lot of old footage spliced together with a bit of new, mainly Gordon lying in a hospital bed explaining why the Batman needs to come back. We see a few brief shots of Bane which are pretty chilling, and then it's over all too quickly.

What do you think?

Extra Tidbit: Despite having no footage, the Joker voiceover one from DARK KNIGHT was a bit better I think.

Teaser all the way!

I'm in! Don't know what more you expect for a film that's still a year away from release. It will be great and the cast is just as awesome as the last film, so bring on the next trailer! I think it's coming in December before Mission Impossible.

This trailer sucked for one reason- what the fuck was Oldman saying? He just mumbled everything! I literally understood one sentence from him. That is a sign of a poorly made teaser.

But then again, what do I know? TDK is overrated, BB was awful, and "The Prestige" is down right fucking awful. Let the thumbs down commence.

Well...

I'm kind of hyped for this film. I loved Nolan's take on this universe in the first two films, and I'm excited to see it through to his conclusion. I'm also a huge fan of both Anne Hathaway and the character Catwoman (I'm reserving judgement on her AS Catwoman until I actually see it), which increases my excitement. HOWEVER, I do think the TDK teaser was more effective. Not necessarily better, but more effective.

Rocky 4 teaser vibe to this...

I still remember watching that Rocky IV teaser and then seeing the 12 foot Drago enter the screen from the left... I was genuinely afraid for Rocky.

The Trailer Is OK

I was a bit disappointed when I saw this trailer before Harry Potter last weekend. I know they're still filming the movie, but I still wanted a bit more footage from the actual film. I'm still super excited though.

Nolan has yet to let me down, so I refuse to assume anything this early. However, I will definitely agree that this trailer is lacking in many areas. It is neither exciting, nor mesmerizing, nor thought provoking, nor ominous; it's just saying "there's a new Batman movie coming out!", which in the end is enough for me I guess. We've got almost a year so I'm sure there will be more to come. I got much more excited when I saw the viral website with the pic of Bane. And a big DITTO to the extra

Heath Ledger's Death...

...made The Dark Knight the cultural phenomenon that it was. The chances of the filmmakers recapturing that magic are slim to none. And a total absence of the most intriguing character from the upcoming film makes one ask, "Is this where the series starts another downward trend?" Not in terms of quality, but commercial success. $530 million is a lot to match. The fanboys had better prepare themselves for a level of disappointment, as this movie almost certainly will not outperform The Dark

I do get what your saying, but what I think is forgot here is that when the first teaser came out for the dark knight and even the eventual full trailer Ledger was not dead yet, he died not long before it was to come out and I was very pumped when I saw the first trailer and coulndt wait, regardless of his death. So I think most of us are excited bc its Batman and the first 2 movies were pitch perfect.

@cricker- Yes, you and several other fanboys were uber-excited for TDK before it came out. However, there is no denying that Ledger's untimely passing was the catalyst for that movie to become as huge as it was. Look at BB's numbers. They were just fine, but nowhere near TDK's levels, so how else do you explain that huge gap?

not sure why this was voted down so much. TDK drew so much $ b/c people wanted to see nolan's take on the joker, and people wanted to see ledger's last (and possibly best) performance.

@Miguelito - I believe Heath Ledger's death added $100-125 million to the gross, tops. 'Batman Begins' was a slow grosser but very well liked so the excitement for the sequel was extremely high.. 'The Dark Knight' would have done gangbusters regardless due to Ledger's Joker, death or not.

That said, I do think his absence from 'Rises' will make even $350 million (domestic) a next to impossible bar. Had he still been alive and reprised the character, it'd be guaranteed to demolish box office

it might not sell as many tickets as TDK did, but it will most certainly make more money when you consider two facts

1. tickets get more expensive every year

2. imax is a much bigger phenomenon now then it was when TDK came out and people are going to flock to see this movie in the better more expensive format

@molloyboy - there is absolutely no way 'Rises' will gross more than 'TDK'. The latter was a "perfect storm" type of movie event, like 'Avatar' and 'Titanic'.

Even if 'Rises' bests 'TDK' in quality, it will be missing the Ledger/Joker ingredient that propelled it into a global phenomenon.

Ticket prices won't have increased significantly enough in 4 years to make up for the lower wattage interest.

I'm just asking for trouble here, but

This isn't what I expected from our first glimpse of Nolan's third Batman film. It's not a BAD teaser, OK? But I don't blame the people below who feel it doesn't quite capture and catapult all the excitement people've had in store for this movie. No, it doesn't have to show more, but the mixture of old clips doesn't introduce the new ones well, imo; the titlecard narration is kind of generic; the crumbling city scape thing comes off a little cheap; I don't get the white background for the

I'm sure it could work for other people, but I don't think it's crazy to be a little let down by it, either.

Dark,Dark,Dark!

Those who hate the teaser..get a life!..its a teaser. Peronally it gave me goosebumps just the way TDK did, but for diffrent reasons. I think this is gonna be one dark and moody film(just the way i like my Batman!)lol. And as for the scene at the end..where Batman looks exhausted(and a little scared)as he raises his fists as Bane enters frame...well we could have ourselves the greatest hero/villain fight in movie history rite there!. Also as Y2 Hinton mentioned the guy in the background in that

Where was catwoman?

It was hard to understand (Gordon: "mumble mumble mumble") and made Bane look like the primary bad guy, which seems odd since Catwoman was the first villain they announced for this film.

I remember when I saw the trailer for The Dark Knight and the goosebumps that followed.
This teaser is a fucking humiliation compared to that trailer.
Though I guess not all is lost, Batman in a fistfight with Bane looks like a cocksucking good time.
(Update)
20, wow, I'm honored. I would like to thank everyone who thumbed me down. I went ahead and made it 21. Thanks a bunch guys, now I understand why the the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise is so popular.

Mediocre, to say the least

The trailer is as cliche as can be in the beginning. "Every hero has a journey." Seriously? That's the best you guys can do? The scene with Gordon is pretty bad too. The only words I understood were, "The Batman must come back." The shots with Bane weren't bad, though.

Don't get me wrong. I'm stoked for this movie, but this teaser trailer is super underwhelming. Nowhere near the impact TDK teaser made on me, and that was just audio.

Agreed on the Gordon part. I saw this in the theater, and everyone was quiet and the trailer was up loud and all I got was "mumble mumble mumble" through the gas mask.

Love the pure tease factor of it, how it really really isn't showing much at all but still manages to wet your fanboy beak. I love the music, very different this time around. And I love how even with the little footage it feels like something special and amazing will be unleashed summer 2012.

One missing bit

There was an extra 2 seconds I saw that really got me jazzed that is missing from this. The very last thing onscreen before it faded out was "Filmed in IMAX". I cannot wait. I loved the first 20 of TDK on that screen and looking forward to the whole she-bang for this one.

Doubt its anything major BUT in the badass snippet of Bane v Batman at the end, who is up on a platform to the right?? Just noticed it but like I said, doubt its anything worthwhile.

The teaser was good enough

People are either complaining that the teaser didn't show enough or that it didn't tease enough. Others say it's the best teaser of all-time which it definitely is not. It got me excited, so that's all that matters.

Does this mean that the arguments between people obsessed with hating or loving Christopher Nolan and this trilogy, will also be in high definition?
Because the grainy, bootlegged version of Christopher Nolan cat-fighting strikeback posts were starting to give me eyestrain.

I watched this clip several time to pause the moment after Gordon explaining and we see a short glimpse of Bane. Hardy as Bane looks terrifying. I'm pretty sure this movie will break The Dark Knight record and set a very high bar. I have faith in you, Mr. Nolan.

It would be great if in the battle that is shown at the end of the preview ends with Bane beating the ever-loving shit out of Batman and then Bane removes his mask to show that it was Michael Keaton all along. Keaton then says, "What were you thinking Bale? Did you really think you could defeat the real Batman?"

Didnt get me excited at all. Seeing Bane isnt nearly as thrilling as hearing the Jokers voice and recycled footage is always lame. Also it looks like this movie is gonna take place in exclusively in the personality-less metropolis theyre calling Gotham. I loved the contrast in BB between the beginning snow covered mountains and Gotham (even though i hate the depiction of Gotham.)

This will be the best "Batman" movie yet. I think it will surpass the masterpiece that was "The Dark Knight".

The last scene in the teaser with Batman and Bane going head to head gave me goosebumps.

EPIC. I really hope the Nolans and Goyer continue to contribute to the comic hero genre. Finally, people who actually get it. Please keep it up!

Gordon does not know Bruce Wayne is Batman..

For anyone speculating that Gordon knows Bruce Wayne is Batman because he is talking to Bruce Wayne while laying in the Hospital bed: That is not the case as Bruce is most likely in disguise wearing a ski mask of some sort to hide his identity from gordon but letting gordon know that he is talking to the man who was Batman..... The reason I say this is because there is a photo of a man from behind-the-scenes shots of a dude jumping out of a building window wearing a 3 piece suit & a ski mask

So that should most likely be Wayne sneaking in & out of the Hospital to see Gordon...

the shot in the trailer also looks like he's wearing something black whether it be a ski mask or his real mask -- otherwise you'd be able to see his neck, ears, something... but it's all black

@wp-dfa.. exactly!!.. you can slightly see from the side that his face is dark.. I should have mentioned that in my post but at least it left it open for someones elses observation which you just pointed out.... anyways, it makes perfect sense,, why would bruce give away his identity.. even in part 1(Batman Begins) Bruce wore a ski mask for his first night out testing his gear & questioning Gordon for answers to why the cops arent doing anything about the drugs being brought in from the docks..

This trailer works well as a TEASER...the teaser-trailer for TDK didn't have any footage.

I hope WB woun't show too much in advance like it is the trend among comicbookmovies (Thor, Captain America and Green Lantern recently)...

The Difference

The biggest Difference between Bain and The Joker/Scarecrow is shown in this Trailer.. Bain is going to walk straight to him rather then send henchman or try to play with his mind.. The fight scenes should be epic

Batman looks like he's getting his ass kicked by Bane. That's going to be a pretty epic battle from that brief look.

Also, where the hell is Catwoman?

After coming out of the Dark Knight dispising the movie and Chris Nolan over time I have realised since then i got caught up in the hype of the movie while this teaser was nice to see it doesnt give to much away and i really wanna go in liking this movie as i did the Dark knight and my only problem with the movie now is can Nolan not only tie up everything but also give us that fulfilling final chapter unlike Toy story 3

If Gordon has MacGregor's Syndrome, I RIOT! As far as the trailer, don't show us anything, I like the mistery.

Only a mild red.

Please don't thumb down. I don't deny there wont be a better trailer later, or that this trailer was terrible (see, only mild). The new footage they do show seems impressive, such as Bane and Gordon in the hospital bed. But there's too much old footage, and the CGI buildings aren't tickling my fancy.

Like I said, there'll probably be stronger trailers to come. But due to a mixture of not wanting to give too much away, not having complete footage, (IMDb still registers this as "filming").

And, finally, wanting to get any kind of footage in front of Harry Potter's gargantuan audience. The trailer is unfortunately a cut below the usual Batman standard.

I am wondering if TDKR is going to incorporate more themes from The Dark Knight Returns graphic novel. Batman going away, needing to comeback, being beaten initially by the mutant gang leader (Bane in this case) only to come back triumphant. It will be interesting to see.

Not the best teaser of the Nolan franchise...

...but I really love Oldman's performance in this. I'm willing to say there's an outside chance that someone makes a Batman superior to Bale's down the line but I don't see how anyone could make a better Gordon than Oldman.

The shot that piqued my interest most had to be Bruce doing push ups in what looked like a prison. Being that Bats is now a fugitive, and Gordon talks like he knows who Batman is it makes me wonder if the secrets out.

He never did shirtless push ups in the prison scene in Begins, that part took place in his bedroom talking to Alfred, and you can clearly see a large prison behind him in the shot. Its a new scene.

because this trailer makes me remember how awesome the Dark Knight teaser trailer was. Hearing Joker for the first time and laughing....

As for this one its great just seeing something new for the movie. However..it was def underwhelming.

Haunting, dramatic, and leaves me wanting more. Everything a great teaser ought to do. And again I take a step closer to the idea that this will be a real Bane story, and Batfans knows what that might entail as far as this being the 'conclusion' of the Nolan trilogy.

As a huge Christopher Nolan and Batman fan I wish I could agree with all the greens but I thought this trailer was really unimpressive, it just used a bunch of recycled footage and CGI based off the poster. The new stuff was so short and unmoving. I hope this teaser being bad is a sign of the movie being great cause there are plenty of instances where the first teaser knocked it out of the park but the movie sucked (Star Wars prequels anyone). Can't wait to see how many negatives I get for this

I wouldn't necessarily disagree with you, but then again: it's a teaser trailer. You nor anyone else should read too much into it. Seriously, TDK's teaser was a batman symbol with audio bytes, yet a lot of people really overread that and (by the looks of the tidbit) still are to this date.

I don't disagree... I think the teaser may be a result of the fact that they're trying not to give anything from the film away too early, and unfortunately other than the final shot with Bane and Batman, I don't see anything to get too excited about here.

First duel with Bane?

Looks like Batman is in the same suit from TDK. Wonder if this is the first go around and he dons a new suit after he rehabs. If they do a bit of the Knightfall arc, this could be a long movie or too much crammed into 2:30-3hrs. Anyone else wanting to see a Superman shout-out or maybe a flash forward to Batman Beyond...we can all wish for something, right?

I know I'm gonna get a million thumbs down from the fanboys

but I honestly thought this was a lame, messy and confused trailer. They obviously didn't have enough material to create a focused or tight teaser and it ended up coming out a bit muddled in my mind. Agreed they should've went with a simpler, more toned down approach like they did with the TDK teaser. Just a little something I found weird though was the main title card... was I the only one who thinks the cream colour is a bit out of place? :S
Still the movie will most likely be great, but

@Guerilla - no, it's cream... the screen fades from the white (when the camera zooms to the top of the city view like in the poster) and then fades to a cream colour, whether you watch it here, on youtube or on facebook. Not a big deal though, just something I felt was weird/out of place

@KitClouc - I simply have a differing opinion on some popular fanboy topics. Warning people out of the gate by admitting that 'I know you'll freak out for this' I've realized is actually a pretty useful tool, a sort of 'spray' for any fanboy attacks, I don't know how it works, but just writing a simple sentence like that seems to brush off at a good portion of fanboys who are often quick to attack otherwise (from experience).

@jsin - wow dude, maybe you should be doing the same - whether it

@jsin - wow dude, maybe you should be doing the same - whether it be on my PC, laptop or phone, it's undeniably 'cream' coloured after the white (after the poster zoom and when the title pops up). It's not that big of a deal but I can't see any reason for anyone to seemingly deny that is is that colour? If it was actually white the colour wouldn't change from the top of the poster zoom shot, which correct me if I'm wrong - is white as a light, then the colour changes, and unless it's a noticable change when white changes to white it's definitely a different [link] whatever you want to call it, lol

Duly noted... just watched the trailer again and paused on that title card and low and behold if you weren't correct sir.
That being said, I'm not sure why they would go with an off white for that card... even a colder blue tint would have been more fitting.

My guess is that bane breaks gordon's back in the movie, much like how gordon faked his death in TDK yet Dent was the one who faked his death in the comics. but then again, i could be wrong. we'll find out next summer.

Despite how good this teaser is...

TDK teaser was better because the Joker was a villain that the entire world knows about and is universally loved. Therefore hearing that bone-chilling laugh made it so much more effective.

Wow.. that final scene of Batman physically exhausted, backing up, getting ready for Bane, wondering how the fuck he can keep up the punishment... that was chilling. Bane needs to be his most difficult and physically demanding opponent so the ending is that much more emphatic and satisfying.. that scene was only 3 seconds long but it fucking kicked ass!

Avengers teaser trailer

If the leaked Avengers teaser trailer (bad video and audio quality) was awesome! This one, was not so much, however I certainly will see it.

A working link (at the moment) Avengers:

Can't wait to see this but, agree with the Extra Tidbit that the voice over Dark Knight teaser was better. I grew up in the 70s and there was no Bane when I was into Batman so, he's not having the impact that the Joker did for me but, I'm sure Nolan picked his villains with good reason. We'll see next summer.

I hope Bane breaks his back like he did in the comics. That would solidify this trilogy as being one of coragious filmmaking.

Undecided....

I think I'll be more excited when a full trailer gets released. There were some cool shots in this teaser, but the font and splicing of older shots almost make it look like a fan made teaser.

As a resident Nolan Batman hater I will say that the preview itself wasn't anything special but that last shot does give me hope that the series will go out on a positive note.

They could have just shown that last clip of Bane approaching Batman and it would have been awesome. Gave me chills...

The teaser for TDK was probably a little better, but my god that last shot.. A terrifyingly huge Bane storming towards Batman, who for once looks genuinely intimidated... I don't want to start over-analyzing a film that's only a few weeks into production, based on a trailer that has only a few seconds of new footage, but Hardy is looking like he's got to the right build and the film overall seems to have the right tone and feel to it.

P.s. Obligatory Nolan geek out, FUCK THIS IS GOING TO BE

Incredible!

Awesome teaser. I expected nothing more, really. That shot of Bane is chilling. This movie looks like all kinds of epic. And I know ppl will whine about it having old footage but that's what I love about Nolan's films. Most of the good stuff is saved for the film itself. I'm gonna' get chills over and over while watching this gig.

in the tradition of analyzing every frame, who the hell was that behind Batman?

Probably just some random guy who happened to walk in on the battle. He looks stunned. Probably saying "... oh---kayyy what the hell's going on here?"

Not sure, but it better not have been the DOP walking through the shot...

the guy is probably going 'oh shit I remember this part from the comics, this is my favourite battle!'

then he grabs a bucket of popcorn and watched with a big shit eating grin on his face

This is the most vague "teaser" trailer I've ever seen...I'm a bit disappointed. However, I'm still psyched for this movie!
