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 CaineThe Dark Knight Rises opens July 20, 2012.

  • Skeptical

    This article was posted on December 19, 2011. It’s only talking about the teaser trailer.

    • tgritz

      eeeehhhh…wrong…the teaser didn’t have anything with the football field or catwoman…also it was released months ago

      • alisa

        Anyone else notice that the person holding the cane, is Bruce Wayne, as you can see his reflection in the silver catering tray? It seems as though Bane will break Batman’s back after all…

    Bane sounds fuckin great: “When gosham is ashiieas you had my permishion to die…”

  • Mike

    Cool trailer. I’m starting to warm to the idea of Hathaway as Catwoman.

  • Brandon

    It’s up now. Go to It’s #2

  • Bruce

    That link takes you to a new trailer posted today. I just watched it twice. Maybe it wasn’t working properly earlier, but it is now.

  • Shmate

    The Apple link takes you to the teaser trailer but if you just watch it on here its the actual trailer.

    By the way, I absolutely cannot wait for this movie!

    • tgritz

      it is both the teaser and theatrical

      however the site is getting hammered right now with hits, so for some its taking longer to pull up…I have a buddy who can’t see the full trailer yet but I pulled it up 10 mins ago

  • Michael

    Does anybody have a clue what Bane said to Batman? The guys who saw the prologue were right, they really need to fix Bane’s speaking in ADR before the film hits theaters..

    • arturo garduño

      He says “When Gotham burn in ashes, you’ll have my permission to die”

      • Hoot

        What? No he doesn’t. Bane says:

        “When Gotham is…ashes, you have my permission to die.”

      • broski

        “When Gotham has sashes, you have my permission to dine.”

    • Muahahaha

      I saw the prologue over the weekend and I couldn’t understand a word Bane said. I kept thinking/hoping it was the Imax speaker system, but my girl and people around me couldn’t understand him either.

      One the plus side, the prologue featured the craziest airplane hijacking ever filmed.

      • Clay

        Thanks. Asshole.

    • Tol

      Why is it so many Americans cannot understand Bane, when the rest of the English speaking world can?

      • sense 11

        i find it strange also,

        I love the voice and don’t mind when a character whose mouth is covered is a little hard to hear, it fits into the movies realistic setting.

      • Hiro the Eighth Samurai (and 14th Assassin)

        It’s because a lot of Americans aren’t familiar with accents besides their own. They don’t even think they have accents, but that people from other countries or cultural backgrounds do.

        I’m American, born and raised, but I fully understood Bane’s lines. I also like to watch foreign movies and movies in different dialects. I’m not one of the xenophobic Americans who hates any movie with subtitles.

      • tom

        hey hiro, is it lonely up there on your pedestal?

      • Old Soldier

        Hey Tol, most of us “Americans” understood him just fine! That being said, you and the rest of the “English Speaking World” probably think we stole Batman from someone else too.

  • sense 11

    So good, the prologue is amazing too. ruff 6 months ahead

    Oh God, more crap from that annoying british gay-hack Christopher Nolan. Ugh!

    Someone should retire that guy….for good. Overexposed morons like him are the reason why truly talented directors like Bennett Miller are left in the shadows. The horny teens of course will flood the theaters to see some “Nolan crap” on the screen, but it’s at least good to know that movies like Moneyball are still able to attract audiences. Audiences who can appreciate a good movie. Not a dumb made-for-teens and emo kids Nolan movie.

    The great thing is that these people will one day grow up and realize how lame and pathetic the Nolan flicks are. Especially that crap creation from last year, called Inception. I’m getting sick just by thinking about that “extremely original and intelligent movie”. Ugh.

    Oh and by the way, the best Batman director is Tim Burton.

    • Jake

      Not sure if you’re trolling, or just an idiot.

      What movies have you been watching? You’ve described all the Twilight movies in your little rant.

    • Al

      Hey look, it’s Ray Carney!

    • Rozz

      Are you being serious? I’m only asking because i honestly can’t tell. If you are being serious then it sounds you have some strange obsession with the movie Moneyball.. you seem to just be hell bent on trying to force everyone to agree with you that Moneyball is better than DKR, but to tell you the truth its kind of scary.

      I’ll bet any amount of money that you’re a Troll!

    • JennyA

      Well, if that wasn’t a troll-like response….

    • HalIncandenza

      He’s not a troll, just a little over-excited.
      He’s right, Nolan is really very overrated as far as being a filmmaking artist goes (as opposed to simply making very loud, plot driven action pictures, at which he excels), he is incapable of making a film that has anything to offer us in the way of understanding or even caring to understand the characters or human nature, and making a film with heart rather than simply with the mind (if this sounds ridiculous to you, then why deny that you simply love dumb action movies? it’s ok to like them, just don’t try and pass Nolan off as a great filmmaker, it won’t wash, Yasujiro Ozu was a great filmmaker, Nolan’s an overgrown teenager with means, though not an entirely untalented one)
      Bennett Miller’s a subtle, sensitive director and Moneyball is a terrific film. Nolan is at best entertaining (the Batman movies), at worst totally inept (Insomnia), but often times just completely devoid of all feeling (Memento, Inception, The Prestige…). Can Nolan and Miller be compared? not really, but he makes valid points that Nolan’s films are very adolescent in their pleasures…

      also, how come it is ‘scary’ that someone could be obsessed with Moneyball (incidentally, a movie about -among other things- obsession, of a kind) and yet totally acceptable for someone to be obsessed with a movie about a rich guy in a bat costume fighting baddies?

  • Robert

    Very underwhelmed…

    Can`t wait for an official trailer, though.

    • sense 11

      looks official to me

    • terry

      Yeah I felt under whelmed to.
      And that football field cave it looked like s***!
      Oh boy I ain’t feeling it!

  • Kenny B

    Yeah that looks pretty fantastic.

    Nolan knows how to frame up an action scene.

  • Hunter

    What does bane say at like the 1:30 mark?

    • Matt

      “When Gotham is ashes, you’ll have my permission to die.” Awesome.

  • tk421

    I had zero interest in this sequel. My faith has been restored. Looks more intense than the previous films. Love where they’re going with the time gap between dark knight and dkrises. Dialogue was stellar. Liking Hathaway in spite of myself. I’m pumped.

    • Clay

      Really? After BB and TDK, you had zero interest until this trailer?

      • tk421

        Don’t get me wrong, man; I enjoyed both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, but I was extremely disappointed in the choice of Anne Hathaway as Selena Kyle and I was thoroughly underwhelmed by the design of her costume. I was starting to feel like a misfire. This trailer dispelled my foolishness.

  • Ankur


  • Allen

    I am so pumped about this!! I dont know why people are comparing the Joker to Bane.
    It’s like comparing apples to oranges. Though i absolutely LOVED the Joker, i do believe that Bane is going to be an amazing Villain. Joker’s goal was to destroy Batman, while Bane’s goal is to burn Gotham to the ground (from what i can tell after watching the trailer/prologue). I also like how Bane commands undying loyalty from his gang (Guy willing to die in the Airplane for Bane’s cause). Once again, loved loved loved the Joker, but Bane seems like a more menacing villain.

    looks brilliant,and why are Batman and Alfred in prison?

  • Edward Lee

    Hmm. Well, Nolan’s already screwed the pooch with Ras’s storyline and the Joker … I’m hoping he doesn’t entirely eff up Bane’s.

    • sense 11

      Joel Schumacher, is that you?

      • Haider


    • JennyA

      Edward, are you for real?!

  • Nick Hart

    looks incredible, everything i could have hoped for. Anne hathaway’s voice alone gives me confidence in her catwoman abilities. her speech seems very “occupy” influenced, im starting to see how nolan could’ve potentially filmed those to include in the movie.

    also, bane’s voice is not difficult to understand at all, i dont see what all the fuss is about. the prologue had a few lines that were unclear, but that was mostly because of all the noise going on with the planes and whatnot. he sounds crystal clear here.

    and matt, please, for the love of god, just fucking report the news. no more jokes, please. please please please.

    • Mr. G

      I love Nolan haters, they are so funny.
      And well, I mostly loved the trailer, is amazing how badass Bane looks, such a destruction agent. And the way Catwoman is kindda voiced by the 99%.

    • Hiro the Eighth Samurai (and 14th Assassin)

      Matt cracks jokes? Since when? ;)

  • emoney

    I loved this trailer, catwoman looked sick, Bane looks awesome I just hope they clean up his voice for final cut. But did anyone else think the football stadium thing was a little cheesy and not “nolan like”?

  • sense 11

    I read this at a different site and confirmed it on here, at the 13 second mark there is someone in the crowd holding up Robin’s logo. That could be a clue, could be nothing. I don’t know but that “R” does not match anything else in frame and looks exactly like Robin’s logo. Would be awesome IMHO

    • b

      the name of the football team is the Gotham Rogues.

      • sense 11

        no shit sherlock

  • Migzter13

    After this movie… armageddon can come now… my life is complete. LOL!!!!

  • douchebag

    Watching MNF and thinking about how many people are actually watching the game…especially in San Fran. What better way to get a hell of a lot of people’s attention. I can’t figure out why people would think the football sequence is cheesy. And of course it doesn’t look impeccable yet – they just shot it a few months ago and the movie doesn’t open for another 8 months. It’s not magic, it’s time and hard work.

    People complain about the stupidest things!!!

  • Swedishero

    Anyone else notice that the person holding the cane, is Bruce Wayne, as you can see his reflection in the silver catering tray? It seems as though Bane will break Batman’s back after all…

    • Joe

      I believe the TDKR story will indeed start from the TDK, bats fleeing the police after the death of two-face making his way back to Wayne Manor. He will be ambushed by Bane who by now knows his secret identify, and fights an already badly hurt and exhausted Bruce, breaking his back.

      The story then fast forwards 7 years.

      I can’t wait for this to start!

      • Jables

        That’s a great theory and all, but the first 5 minutes of the movie was played in front of MI4, and that didn’t happen.

  • broski

    lol @ Goldberg for having Steelers players on his fantasy team…they suck this year. lol

  • Hunter

    Well it looks like The Dark Knight definitely does “rise” and will become accepted by Gotham because it shows him standing on the steps with a bunch of police about to take on Bane and his men.

  • jon

    Does anyone know if/when the prologue will be online?

  • Tim

    Didn’t give me goosebumps like the Dark Knight trailer did/still does.

  • jimbo

    From what I can see from trailer, I am not digging it. Hathaway casting doesn’t work at all.

  • jimbo

    Big fan of Batman movies but from what I can see from the trailer, I am not digging it at all. And Hathaway casting is poor.

  • tarsane

    The difference between Nolan action movies and all the rest of crap that’s Hollywood been doing for the last 15 years (excl. Mann, Snyder, Abrams…) is that his doing the darker movie tone, attention to a nice dark and not too popping movie look and production design, gets his characters to have a certain mysterious, serious quality and doesn’t show off douchebags with one liners.
    And one thing that knocks these movies out of the ballpark and just sh+++s on Hollywood is the use of _the music_, the blend of modern electronica and exciting orchestral stuff and that’s constructed to such detail.
