Trailer Description for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES? Plus the First Poster [Updated with Image]

     July 12, 2011


As we previously reported, the teaser trailer for The Dark Knight Rises is rumored to be attached to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 this weekend.  And with the teaser poster getting released yesterday, it’s looking like those rumors are probably true.

Anyway, a few minutes ago a reader contacted me and they’re claiming to have seen the teaser trailer and have sent us a description.  Hit the jump if you want to check it out.  Opening on July 20th, 2012, The Dark Knight Rises stars Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Gary Oldman, Marion Cotillard, and Morgan Freeman.

Update: A reader named Dave just sent us a photo from the trailer.  It’s below the description.

Update 2: WB asked us to take down the image. Sorry if you missed it.

the-dark-knight-rises-teaser-posterWhile I always recommend waiting to experience things in the theater…if you can’t wait…I’m pretty sure this is the description of the trailer.  Here’s what we were sent…

Alight sir, here it is. I’m doing this on my phone so I’m sorry for any spelling and grammar mistakes.

-Trailer opens with studio logos set on top of the blue flame from Dark Knight.

Start panning up some buildings, but to 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


Ra’s voice over: If you make yourself more than just a man. If you devout yourself to be ideal. And you become something else entirely. A legend Mr. Wayne….A LEGEND!


Cut to Gordon in a hospital bed laying on his side. Looks to be in serious pain. Has A breathing mask on. 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 like if 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 Act Signal all cut in with the Hospital. As well as super fast flashes of Bane’s face.

Pan up crumbling 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.


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.

So what do you think?  If this ends up being true, I’m going to lose my shit this weekend.
