The Dark Knight Rises Trailer and Poster
Earlier today a trailer for the upcoming Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises, was leaked to the internet. Don’t get too excited, it was quickly taken down, but not before some lucky fans got a look at it. There are rumours of what happened in the trailer, but regardless of the reliability of the myths, we’ll all get a chance to see the trailer his Friday.
It has been reported that a trailer for The Dark Knight Rises will play before the last Harry Potter film, which comes out this Friday, the 15th of July. As if you needed another reason to go see Harry Potter. However, it’s uncertain if this will be the case worldwide, but don’t worry as a little thing called the internet saves the day. The trailer will no doubt be available online either on Friday or the days following.
Now on to the rumours, according to fans the trailer shows clips from the first two movies, including the scene were Bruce Wayne meets Ra’s al Ghul. A possible plot point, hinted at in the trailer, is that Wayne has quit being Batman and, though Gotham City may need him, Bruce no longer feels he can play the part. Also shown in the trailer is Bane, who is the films main antagonist. Having not seen the trailer myself, I do have my doubts, but whether or not the rumours are true I’m still excited about this movie.
The official movie poster was also revealed (above). I can’t help notice that it’s very similar to the poster for Batman Begins (right). This could be a coincidence, but I think it was done on purpose. It shows the change in tone from were it started to were it ends. Great creative decision, in my opinion.
