The Dark Knight Rises Second Trailer
A second, more detailed, trailer for The Dark Knight Rises has hit the web and, among the positive comments, there are some negatives to be pointed out. Does this mean that Nolan will fail to top the hugely successful second film?
There is no doubt that the latest Batman film will top the box office when it comes out, but are fans going to be satisfied with this ‘epic’ conclusion? As a Batman (and Christopher Nolan) fan, I hope so. However, The Dark Knight was done so well that it’s going to be hard to top and I’m not sure if any of the villains in The Dark Knight Rises will be able to compare to Heath Ledger as The Joker.
Also, some of the things from the trailer were a little, how do I put it, odd. At one point a football pitch collapses into a big crater, which just seemed a little too Final Destination. Then there is the random futuristic flying thing. If I’m completely honest, that just seemed like it was in the wrong movie, like a Michael Bay leftover or something. I do want to be wrong here, I hope that when seen in proper context these things fit in perfectly with the tone, and the world, of the series.
It’s not all bad; there were things I liked too. After seeing the trailer I am more confident in Anne Hathaway playing Catwoman. Though you don’t actually see her as Catwoman, she does have a scene where she warns Bruce Wayne of the impending chaos. Bane also seems pretty cool and at one point it looks as though he was defeated Wayne and say ‘when Gotham is ashes, you have my permission to die’. So I’m pretty sure both Catwoman and Bane no that Bruce Wayne is Batman, probably after discovering it throughout the film.
This film takes place eight years after its predecessor. The people of Gotham have recovered from The Joker’s attacks and now the city is relatively peaceful. There has been no need for Batman, who had become an outlaw after taking the blame for Harvey Dent. Now Batman must return to prevent Gotham once again falling into the hands of the criminals.
