“The Dark Knight Rises” Teaser Trailer Released
Well, folks, here it is. Warner Brothers actually took the social networking route and debuted it on both Facebook and Twitter, rather than on an official website or iTunes. I must say that the trailer does display a bit more footage than I thought (even though people are already bitching about a lack of visuals). One thing’s for sure, Christopher Nolan has not before, nor will he (apparently) leave behind the gritty elements of realism that have made his franchise so immensely popular. This chapter looks about as cut and dry as anything I’ve ever seen. It appears that Nolan really knows what he’s doing in this final installment and I’m not expecting any disappointment.
As far as the footage goes: stellar. Gary Oldman on the hospital bed was probably the last thing that anyone was expecting to see, but it works. And the final shot of Bane approaching a beleaguered Batman in some kind of seedy industrial setting was chilling. Nothing on Catwoman, yet, but we’ve still got plenty of time. If this film follows the same publicity pattern as the last film, we can probably expect a second trailer with more footage by January, followed by a final piece by perhaps March or April.
One more thing. Before seeing this trailer, I had little to no respect for the film’s title. However, after getting a very loose glimpse of the film’s plot and tone, maybe the “Rises” actually works for it.
