New Footage Galore in Latest TV Spot for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

     June 15, 2012


Continuing the trend of showing half of a movie before it opens, a fair amount of new footage from The Dark Knight Rises has been unveiled in the latest TV spot for the film.  Given the lengths to which director Christopher Nolan has gone to keep the plot of The Dark Knight Rises under wraps, I’m really hoping Warner Bros. doesn’t unleash an Avengers-style media blitz in the next month leading up to the final Batman film’s release (though I’m not holding my breath).  That said, if you’re interested in a few new bits of footage this TV spot gives us a scene between Gary Oldman and Joseph Gordon-Levitt and some fun Christian Bale/Morgan Freeman banter.

Hit the jump to watch the TV spot.  The film also stars Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, and Marion CotillardThe Dark Knight Rises opens on July 20th.
