Good news people, the Dark Knight Rises teaser trailer will debut in cinemas tomorrow at the beginning of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2!! There is no doubt that next year it is all about Christopher Nolan’s finale of his Batman trilogy, and a certain little Hobbit. For now, we will focus on the Dark Knight and give you an insight in what to expect from the teaser. I have seen the teaser, it has been leaked, but with Warners and Nolan doing their best to keep everything secretive, we will not break rules and show the teaser until it has been officially launched, so you only need to wait less than 24 hours dear readers. Or, you can head on over to Youtube and see it there providing it hasn’t already been pulled. A guy with a camera managed to film the trailer in a screening, so the actually leaked version is a bit dodgy looking anyway. However, it looks stunning, and Bane’s presence is terrifying, he appears twice, once as a quick glimpse of his face, and secondly as Batman backs away from him. Batman, backing away from an enemy, now this is unsettling stuff! Here is the lowdown on exactly how the trailer plays out, as posted on JoBlo.com:
Trailer opens with studio logos set on top of the blue flame from Dark Knight. Start panning up some buildings, but cut to the screen card:
EVERY HERO HAS A JOURNEY.
Cuts to a shot from Begins with Bruce walking up to that Village when he’s looking for Ra’s Screen Card:
EVERY HERO HAS AN END
Ra’s (Liam Neeson) voice over: “If you make yourself more then just a man. If you devout yourself to be ideal. And you become something else entirely. A legend Mr. Wayne….A LEGEND!”
Screen Card: THE EPIC CONCLUSION
Cut to Gordon in a hospital bed laying on his side. Looks to be in serious pain. Has A breathing mask on. He is talking to someone. Gordon: “We were in this together, then you were gone…….Now this Evil rises. The Batman…..HAS to come back.” (all this is said in a very raspy voice, in much pain)
Bruce/Batman(its not shown who he’s talking to, so don’t know in which form Bruce is visiting him in. My guess would be as Bruce Wayne) : “What if he doesn’t exist anymore?”
This part is the hardest to understand in the entire trailer, I listened to it at least 10 times but the score is over powering here and Gordon is having trouble talking. It sounds as if he says, “Humor me,” while trying to laugh. I might be wrong here, full disclosure.
During this quick talk we’re shown a shot of the bat cycle when it drives up the ramp from Dark Knight, Gordon destroying the Bat Signal all cut in with the Hospital. As well as super fast flashes of Bane’s face.
Pan up crumbing buildings to reveal the Teaser Poster, the camera zooms to the white opening and on an all white screen the title appears. The score reaches a fever pitch before turning over to The chanting from the website.
THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
Fades to black and then we see Batman backing away from something, then Bane enters from the left side of the screen. Very quick shot then the trailers done.
Its not a lot, but its something to get us all excited about next Summer’s biggest film. Check back here for the official teaser once it goes public!
