The Dark Knight Rises trailer arrives at last!

12.19.2011by:

And to think, a mere hour ago I was bitching that the studio hadn't bothered to release the DARK KNIGHT RISES trailer yet, forcing us to either go see MISSION IMPOSSIBLE or watch bootleg versions online this weekend.

Well it appears they were listening, and now they've finally released the official trailer for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES which you can see below.

It's not quite as mesmerizing as THE DARK KNIGHT's was, but I definitely dig it. Class warfare (literally, warfare) seems to be a pretty heavy theme. I do understand however, what our own Mike Sampson was saying after he saw the prologue in terms of how it's hard to understand Bane. He only says about six words in this trailer, but I could only catch three of them, even after multiple viewings.

Without further ado, check it out for yourself below!

Extra Tidbit: I doubt we'll ever see the prologue online.

Soooo what about Alfred...?

Funny how this is getting no attention. Did anyone else feel just awful after hearing Alfred sadly telling Bruce that he pretty much hasn't protected him?? Poor Alfred =(

Awesome trailer. It will probably not be as great as Dark Knight, but I'm definitely excited for it.

It's a very well done trailer, and it actually has me more hyped to see the film than the last two film's trailers.

It's difficult to tell if this will have huge, ridiculous, inexcusable plot holes like The Dark Knight did. I hope Nolan learned something from that mistake - one he might have easily ignored given the massive amounts of money the movie made. I hope his writing doesn't become lazier the more grandiose the movie becomes. I still cannot sit down and tolerate TDK's plot holes, no matter how many fanatics it has. Fanfare is not a measure of quality, and it never will be.

Wow, someone's pouring gasoline on themselves too close to the fire. What do you expect to get out of posting something like that? You go out of your way to express your disgust about the "inexcusable plot holes," baiting what you know to be a strong TDK/Nolan following with an arrogant and condescending tone, all so someone will ask you to explain your brilliant insights into the flaws of a globally revered and financially successful film.

How dare you come to this page to voice your dissent! Dear Leader Nolan does not make plot holes, the box office figures confirm this! Every single moment in The Dark Knight makes perfect sense - go watch a Joel Schumacher film if it's too hard for you! IN ETERNAL LEADER NOLAN WE TRUST.

@Outsider: Wow, someone's showing how psychotically identical to an evangelical maniac they appear. I humbly bow down and submit my sincerest apology for not believing in the one true Bible of Christopher Nolan. Please allow me give you the most passionate fellatio a human mouth has to offer. Afterwards, I will hole myself up in a cave and flog myself until I die of exposure for having dared to conceive an opinion which doesn't match that of the written word of almighty Lord Nolan.

@Red4: Yeah.. You would reply like that. Nobody's knocking you 'cause you have an adverse opinion to the majority. (Well, I'm certainly not -- can't speak for others.) The actual question I posed was, paraphrasing, "Why would you come here and write something like that, in the way you did, knowing full well the fans on this site?" Here's another question -- where in my post did I actually say I LIKE Nolan, let alone worship him? Is it just because I called you out on your bombastic dipshit

Hmm. I love the trailer but that's because I'm a Batman fanatic and have seen BB and TDK so many times. I wonder though how the casual fan will take it. I mean, very very little is explained in this dialog-light preview. Bane is given absolutely no explanation of who he even is, his name or his general motivation...I guess this trailer was just made for the hardcore fans in mind I guess, that and a desire to not give away much of anything in terms of plot.

does anyone here actually read articles on the site?

there are two trailers..an Imax one that is Bane centric for 6 minutes and then this one.

The Bane centric one is what everyone is talking about. We are really proud of a few of you that made up that line he says at the end of the trailer. You deserve a cookie.

1. bane says "when gotham is ashes, you have my permission to die." for anyone who's wondering.
2. this is not just NOT the prologue we saw before M:I 4, but in fact very different. that was a 5 min clip followed by a montage, and that montage had a verrry different feel than this.

I'm gasping for air, this 2 minute trailer is better than any trailer that has ever been made, just as the poster for this was the best poster for anything ever. I can understand Bane, if you say you can't then you're a hater! "When Gotham is in ashes you have my permission to die" - I love it! That makes perfect sense as a

nitpicking

for those who either want something to bitch about or legitimately couldnt hear bane:

when gotham is in ashes you have my permission to die....

heard on my first time through

maybe they should clear it up or put subtitles or someshit like the class warfare angle very relevant to what the world is like today i am even more stoked before

EPIC!! With regards to Banes voice its looking like it might be a trans atlantic thing. Being from the UK its not a problem but agree if americans cant understand it its till a problem and should maybe tone down the digital muffle. Wouldnt be a problem as all Hardys dialogue will be ADR anyway due to the mask. The studio may well lean on Nolan to tidy it up a bit before release so I wouldnt worry

Mumble, mumble, mumble...

Christ, I had to re-watch it a few times and STILL didn't get some of the lines clearly. If they don't fix that, it's gonna make the movie a fucking mess to watch.

And I agree...the score and scenes lacked an emotional punch. I'm hoping this gets better.

What are YOU talking about

"When Gotham is ahses, you have my premission to die". I heard it as clear as a whistle not a problem, love the way Bane is talking, creepy and threatening. Saw a dodgy recording of the proluge and understood everything in that, really can't see what everyone's problem is. This will be the biggest film of the trilogy and i'll be there on opening day a woo hoo!!!

Meh

Anne Hathaway may be believable as a LOL-Cat but she is certainly no Catwoman. Not a lot of Batman in the Trailer either. I hope that the next Batman movie will be in the vein of the "Arkham City" Game. I don't care for the "realism".

Oh snap. How Clever! That's complete Bullshit. The Nolan Franchise is as unrealistic as the Schumacher Batman. Get over it. I was talking about a Batman in Style of the "arkham city" game or the original comics. I am missing a more fantastic gotham city in Nolans Version. Don't need to feel defensive.

When Gotham is in ashes, you have my permission to die.

This was really good, don't get me wrong, but I have to agree with people who are saying it's nowhere near the level of its predecessor's trailer. I remember when the second trailer for The Dark Knight hit the web - there was just a collective gasp at that first shot of Ledger standing in the street, crazed look on his face, holding the gun, combined with his cackling laugh. Would have liked a few more shots of Bane in this one - thought it was weird that one of the first shots in the trailer

Would have liked a few more shots of Bane in this one - thought it was weird that one of the first shots in the trailer was of Bane up-close. For whatever reason Nolan wasn't nearly as secretive about Bane as he was The Joker, and we saw all those on-set photos months ago...I think it ruined a bit of the surprise of actually seeing him?

Anyway, really good trailer but I think The Dark Knight might be the best trailer of all time.

Obviously I'll be branded a hater, but that was good, not amazing. Watched it about 3 or 4 times now and that's a pretty ordinary teaser. Generic action, like all his batman films .If this was anyone but Nolan you'd all be drowning in your own apathy, but it is Nolan so drown in your own jizz.

Getting used to Bane's voice...

saw the intro before MI:4 and couldn't understand a thing...after studying the leak, reading the script and getting used to the accent and the articulation, everything is understandable. Maybe it's a ploy for people to have to see the movie over and over trying to figure out what he's saying while increasing box office numbers...everything is a business at the end of the day. About the trailer: can't wait to see Bane break the Bat.

It seems this Bane is immune to pain, it will be cool to see how Batman gets his breather off to defeat him... I am thinking he sacrifices himself to do it.

The funniest thing about Bane's accent is that he sounds like Hugo Strange in B:AC.

There's something much more subtler about this trailer than TDK's (besides the whole collapsing field). There's not as much characters in costume except for Bane. Even Bruce Wayne rappels down the side of a building sans the Batman outfit, and we see Selina Kyle three times, none of which were in costume.

None of these are criticisms just observations.

I'm not sure why so many people are complaining about Bane's voice. I thought it was pretty clear "when Gotham is ashes, you have my permission to die". Maybe the prologue was different but I have no complaints about this. Did anyone catch a badly beaten Bruce Wayne in that clip? I'm not sure if Bane breaks his back but it seems like he for sure kicks his ass. Can't wait for this.

yea..because you saw him say one line.

How about you shell out $19 and watch it in an Imax and let me know about 6 minutes what you think?

I unfortunately agree.. I had skimmed the script pages online after I saw it in IMAX, then watched a bootleg of the prologue. Only then did I understand what was being said. (Not to say I didn't get what was going on -- that was pretty cut and dry, which may suffice in this case.)

SPOILER ALERT FOR PROLOGUE

It may have been a one time thing because of the sounds of the plane... but the big battle on the steps (in the trailer) is going to be almost as loud. I'd hate for more lines to go missed just because of Nolan's strict, "realistic" approach..

In the end, it's either compromising reality and re-dubbing the dialogue, or remaining partially inaudible. While the latter to me is a complete @%$&ing copout move for "artistic" sake, the former's not a great decision either. In this case, I'd rather them fudge reality a bit. Subtitles would BLOW but they were necessary for the prologue.

Amazing trailer.

After seeing Bruce in some form of prison, it makes me think...what if Bane breaks, or even kills, Batman in the first act and the next act is about the uprising of the lower class and Bane?

There was a rumor that the lazarus pit was in the film. What if Batman gets help from Ra's in the form of the pit, hence making him 'Rise'...and bringing the trilogy full circle to his training and defeating Bane to close out the film.

I'm not saying Ra's won't or shouldn't come back -- it's stretching plausibility, but I could definitely dig it in combination with what story elements about which we're already speculating. But helping Bruce? Sorry. Go fish.

To each their own, Outsider. I said that the trailer makes me think of what I mentioned above. It was a thought. Accept it for what it was.

And, for what it's worth, Batman and Ra's' daughter had a relationship. So it's entirely possible, for the sake of storytelling, that one of them comes around to help Bruce in order to defeat a greater enemy. It's film theory 101. Deal with it.

Isn't it already been said that Ra's IS in this film? Of course I have no idea if it might be flashbacks or not BUT I remember seeing where Liam Neeson was signed to return for this film.

And he'd help Bruce for one simple reason : He has always wanted Bruce to finally take over the League of Shadows. Sure they battle but Ra's main goal is to convince Bruce to lead. He doesn't want Bruce dead and especially wouldn't at the hands of someone else.

It still isn't my first guess. I

Bane's Accent

Anyone have any guesses as to his geographic origin from his accent? Someone below mentioned British, which I don't quite agree with. I also heard German suggested somewhere. Having heard both the trailer and prologue in clear audio, I really don't know.
I'm stumped on the articulation of "you hahf my parmission too diyee," but I could be overanalyzing.. Anyone have any concrete guesses? Or is it just a nondescript, purposefully indiscernible "foreign" accent?

As much as I love Nolan's Bat-films

I am starting to get to that point where I want to see traditional Batman on the big screen.

I love the cast of these movies, and I love how they're taking it seriously and perfectly planning every step of the way. But after re-watching the DC animated series, reading a few Bat-comics and obviously the not-too-long-ago completion of Arkham City, I'm starting to get that urge for an old school Batmobile, a less tech heavy Batman, and basically a genuine noir detective mood with a Batman that

I feel like I've ruined the excitement for myself here, which I hate myself for because I love Batman.

Honestly I was just recently wondering how an R-Rated, gritty, lower budget Batman film would look while being played as a crime-mystery. Zasz would be the perfect criminal for such a film in my eyes. He's on a vicious murdering spree and its a game of cat and mouse for Bats to find, catch and stop him.

I think it could be very cool.

someone below mentioned an easter egg with the robin symbol or whatnot, if theres gonna be a robin it would be joseph gorden levitt.

also for those that saw the prologue, didnt they rehash alotta things similar to TDK in dialogue, its like bane is the joker... what made the joker especially spooky was the performance of heath and even more cuz his death surrounding it. all in all ill be there at midnight excited! banes voice is awesome

Banes Voice

Really liked the trailer, but Bane really is hard to understand, after I found out what he says, "When Gotham is in ashes, you have my permission to die", I could actually hear it then. But watching the prolouge in MI4, I could only understand a few words of his dialouge, one of them being "Fire" I think.

Looked pretty awesome to me. I thought Anne looked god s Catwoman, and came across as less over the top than any previous version of Catwoman, including Michele Pfiefer. I don't understand the gripes with the football stadium scene. I don't get how it would be over the top. Banes voice is something that people will just have to get use to. I didn't understand him at first but I think it was because I wasn't expecting him to talk like that. I can say I'm pumped for this now.

Didn't anyone else catch that the R in the "Rogues" sign the crowd was holding was the R from Robin's insignia in the comics? I doubt its anything major but it was a nice wink to the fans.

Knightfall and Dark Knight Returns

Looks quite good. No better or worse than the trailers for the previous 2 films.

I would say that it looks like Bruce goes off to retrain himself after his fight with Bane. It would explain him doing press ups in the teaser and would reference the "ris" chants with the title of the film.

I'd say Batman gets busted up early on. Heads off to retrain and whilst he's away Bane and his army of "mutants" rise up and almoast destroy Gotham, and then Bats will fly in to save the day at the end.

Very cool. My eyes almost popped at the stadium collapsing, scary stuff! I have to say I haven't been a huge fan of Nolan's vehicle styles for Batman thus far, but that's just me being a nit-picky traditionalist. I'm positively psyched for this. I also don't think Bane is all that tough to understand.

Couldn't resist watching

Not as great as TDK trailers but still pretty good. Gives you the sense of dredd and uncertainty. One thing about Nolan's Batman, compared to other comic book movies, you never know what might happen and you really fear the worst.
Also, it's nice that Nolan stays with the times and switches a little from terrorism to class warfare, which ultimately works in Catwoman prefectly and will probably reach a lot of people nowadays. Nice move

Ra's al Ghul and Bane then launch a plague attack on Gotham in the "Legacy" storyline.
Learning that the Demon's Head still lives, Batman and his team circle the globe, preventing further outbreaks of the virus. Ra's allies himself with Bane, the man who once crippled and nearly killed Batman. Ra's considers Bane a potential heir to his empire, despite his daughter Talia's distaste for the criminal mastermind. Eventually, Batman deduces a way to eliminate the Clench virus from an ancient "Wheel of Plagues" artifact whose knowledge has aided Ra's in the creation of the disease. The immortal madman again eludes justice, however.
Bruce Wayne, again costumed as Batman, gets his rematch with Bane and finally defeats him in single combat. Since then, whenever Batman and Bane square off in battle, their fights usually end in a draw.

The Dark Knight Rises Trailer Spoilers?

Spolers.. From what I saw in the trailer:

Bane does INDEED break Batman's back...

1. Looks like he injures him pretty good. Batman must say something along the lines of "Why don't you kill me?" to which Bane replies, in trailer "When Gotham is ashes you have my permission to die."

2. Appears Bruce, or someone is walking around Wayne manor with a cane. (15 secs into trailer)

3. Bruce appears to be resting on the cane in the chat with Marion Cotillard.

My question is... How early

Bane does INDEED break Batman's back...

1. Looks like he injures him pretty good. Batman must say something along the lines of "Why don't you kill me?" to which Bane replies, in trailer "When Gotham is ashes you have my permission to die."

2. Appears Bruce, or someone is walking around Wayne manor with a cane. (15 secs into trailer)

3. Bruce appears to be resting on the cane in the chat with Marion Cotillard.

My question is... How early in the film does Batman go down? Does he have enough time to avenge?

I'm 29 years old. I've been a Batman fan since I was a kid. I should be excited about this movie, but for some reason the trailer left me feeling "blah". And those prisoners walking out looked goofy as hell. Thumbs down all you want...

agree with the prisoners walking out - seemed a little too orchestrated, although this trailer is still waaaay bad ass. I am pumped to see it, just one of those "no more dead cops" moments, any movie is bound to one of em. Although I believe this movie will kick major ass.

NICE

Bane wasn't hard to understand. Was this how he sounded in the prologue?

Hathaway looked so good. I don't get the haters. She looks like a good fit for the role, and she looks gorgeous.

The Batwing looked sweet flying behind the camo tumbler. Scary looking, like it shouldn't be able to fly, yet it does.

I don't know how this works, but every time you change your avatar you get even more annoying than before. Is there some kind of level of experience in annoyance you are trying to reach ?

Also

When Bruce says "what are they chanting?", and the other guy responds "rise", are they in a prison? Are the convicts chanting it?

Also dieing to know who Gordon Levitt is playing. Probably a good cop who becomes an ally to Gordon and Batman.

The chant says: "Mátalo Mátalo! Bane Bane!" = Kill him kill him! Bane Bane!

I'm assuming that the clip of that scene they're chanting something else, but they just used the music track with the Matalo Matalo chants.

I was wondering if Levitt may be playing Nightwing, yes i know there hasn't been a Robin yet but the films never stick to the comics storylines as we know.

In the trailer, Bruce asks about the chant and the other guy replies, "Rise." I'm pretty sure they're saying, "deshay basara" repeatedly, which is "rise" or "the fire rises." Fits with the prologue.

Not "Kill him kill him Bane Bane."

Looks good to me

For all I heard about Anne Hathaway and knocking her, I dug what she brought to the trailer. I like her anyway.
Bane. Hmmm....interesting choice of coat.
And sounding like Jerry Mouse's uncle that needed a guitar string?
It's got to lead to something, right?

Bring it on.

Great Trailer!

The movie looks amazing and I can't wait to see Batman fight Bane in the middle of the day instead of just seeing him fight during the night. Hardy as Bane looks great and at first wasn't a fan of the voice and couldn't understand what he was saying. But after getting used to the voice, his voice is clear and I like the fact that he has heavy breathing while talking and that he is hard to understand.

The Batwing was awesome to see, especially at the end. Can't wait to see Batman in action

K it took me about 4 times to watch it but I finally figured it out, "when Gotham is ashes, you have my permission to die." But hopefully his voice is fixed becuase i wont be able to replay the movie in theaters 4 times!

Don't know why people are giving Hathaway such a hard time, she's got one line in the trailer and it's awesome. The first two movies are fueled by the state of Gotham City's corruption and the small handful of people doing right surrounded by wrong. Then their's Bruce Wayne, billionaire and defender of the city's values and future. If people want to read into at as some sort of reflection to the current state of the country, you can do that with almost anything, but the fact is, it's been

I saw the 6 minute prologue, and just watched this trailer.. There is nothing wrong with banes voice. I think it sounds cool, and you can understand what he is saying. Nolan wont change a thing. you people need to have some creative minds. Not everything is going to be how you want it. He is wearing a mask it would be hard to understand him in real life. But I did not see anything wrong with his voice. Stop complaining.

Hmm. Not sure about this one. I can't decide if that football scene was cool or ridiculous. Maybe in context it'll work.

As for Bane, whether you can understand him or not, I really hope they have him get bigger and bigger as the movie progresses.

Cool to see the batwing at the end. The few moments of cg in the other films are like icing on the cake, since the tone is so dark and realistic. Hopefully they do some forced perspective/digital double stuff for Bane toward the end.

I love Batman and I adored TDK, but I just did not dig the trailer...but this is a good test of the fans' faith. You merely stated you weren't that interested, but commented that there have been better trailers and that it wasn't as epic as it should have been and you were treated (from the thumbs down) like you said Nolan is a hack who is a Tea Party [link]">

Personally, it would not surprise me if a lot more people thought the same thing, but are so scared to admit it that the mere suggestion by a third party that their deep, dark feelings threatens their fantasy.

I have a feelng...

Bane won't talk a whole lot in the movie. He will be more of a physical presence that let's his actions speak for him. I doubt he'll be going on a long diatribe where we can only understand every other word. That being said I haven't had a hard time understanding him in the trailer or the bootlegged prologue I may or may not have watched.
Also, considering its someone as meticulous as Nolan, I wouldn't be surprised if the hard to understand voice is on purpose if only to make the physicality

Oh yeah, one more thing. If we could hear every single word super clearly there would be people, possibly the same people complaining now, complaining that its stupid we can hear him clearly even though he's wearing that mask.

All I am saying is there MIGHT be a reason he chose to have a hard to understand voice.
And just FYI, I hate Bale's Batman voice. But it is done that way for a reason, to add another layer to the disguise.

It's impressive the preview gives away very few plot points (though depending on your perspective, could be a bad thing) and they don't even show the prologue footage..

Oh Brother...

The hat tip to the unemployable OWS crowd via Anne Hathaway's line about Bruce living large and leaving so little for the rest of them was quite eye-roll worthy.
Hopefully this film doesn't turn into a 2 hour preach-fest about some imaginary percentage and the evils of profit and wealth coming from a directer who is worth $90 million.

Umm, $90 million is less than pocket change to the actual 1%.

And I'd gladly welcome a message about that issue in one of the biggest films in recent years. Mainly because it's FUCKING TRUE.

@ccapel = No it's not. It's a big bag of hyper-emotional baloney.

For instance, let's take the imaginary figure 99%. It's imaginary, because it doesn't come from some scientific sociological study or survey. It's purely made up and therefore means less than nothing, kind of like the Occupados who rather than spending their time sprucing up a resume are engaged in sadly pathetic attempts to relive/recreate the 1960s, which ended nearly half a century ago.

The reason the Occupados are

Looks awesome! I'm just wondering how people are having a hard time understanding Bane? First listen, I got half of it; heard it again, it's fairly clear to me.
