Two brand new TV spots have been released as the advertising for Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises begins to heat up. The film is due out in UK cinemas and cinemas across the world on 20th July, so the marketing team are starting to go into over-drive. However, can they possibly match the brilliance that Fox have done with pushing Prometheus?
The new TV spots feature some new footage, and some of it is very impressive, although I can’t say I am keen on the amount of jokes thrown into each one. Saying that though, Christian Bale does deliver the one-liners very well, like when he is told his wife says he is taking a cab home, Bale’s deliver of “my wife?!!!” is terrific. BatmanNews also showed off some new images, seven of them, and you can view them all after the TV spots below. Enjoy!
Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ “The Dark Knight Rises” is the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, Leading an all-star international cast, Oscar(R) winner Christian Bale (“The Fighter”) again plays the dual role of Bruce Wayne/Batman.
