The trailer for Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight Rises has gone online. The trailer is full of ominous warning. Both Batman and Gordon brought peace to Gotham, but it looks like that has only served to massive destruction and Catwoman warnings. There’s plenty to like in the trailer: the set design, the tone, the chanting, and how the frame is packed with action. But there’s one shot that had me cracking up and it’s the destruction of the football field. I watch that and all I can think is, “Bane just seriously fucked over my fantasy football team.”
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film stars Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, and Michael Caine. The Dark Knight Rises opens July 20, 2012.
