New IMAX TV Spot for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Plus 8 New High-Resolution Images

     July 6, 2012


Though Warner Bros. won’t be bringing Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises to Comic-Con next week, fans certainly aren’t being shafted when it comes to new footage and images.  Yesterday the film’s levitation-enhanced IMAX poster was unveiled, and now a new IMAX TV spot has been released alongside eight new high-resolution images.  As far as I can tell, the TV spot has a few bits of new footage (Christian Bale says the word “Bane!”).  We’ve seen most of these new images in previous trailers and such, but the coolest one is actually of Nolan.  He’s seen etching the Batman logo into the side of a wall with a piece of chalk, which is the image that makes up the cover art for the soundtrack of Hans Zimmer’s score.

Hit the jump to check out the TV spot and the high-resolution images.   The film also stars Tom HardyAnne HathawayGary OldmanMorgan Freeman, Michael CaineMarion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.  The Dark Knight Rises opens on July 20th.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Dark Knight Rises:

the-dark-knight-rises-imax-posterWarner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ “The Dark Knight Rises” is the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy.

It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act.

But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.

Leading an all-star international cast, Oscar(R) winner Christian Bale (“The Fighter”) again plays the dual role of Bruce Wayne/Batman. The film also stars Anne Hathaway, as Selina Kyle; Tom Hardy, as Bane; Oscar(R) winner Marion Cotillard (“La Vie en Rose”), as Miranda Tate; and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, as John Blake. Returning to the main cast, Oscar(R) winner Michael Caine (“The Cider House Rules”) plays Alfred; Gary Oldman is Commissioner Gordon; and Oscar(R) winner Morgan Freeman (“Million Dollar Baby”) reprises the role of Lucius Fox. The screenplay is written by Christopher Nolan and Jonathan Nolan, story by Christopher Nolan & David S. Goyer. The film is produced by Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Charles Roven, who previously teamed on “Batman Begins” and the record-breaking blockbuster “The Dark Knight.” The executive producers are Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Kevin De La Noy and Thomas Tull, with Jordan Goldberg serving as co-producer. The film is based upon characters appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. Batman was created by Bob Kane.
