New Footage in Latest TV Spot for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES [Updated with Bane Viral Poster]

     July 5, 2012


With The Amazing Spider-Man currently swinging across theaters worldwide, the next superhero film on the horizon is the biggie: The Dark Knight Rises.  In case you haven’t had your fill of footage, a new 60-second international TV spot has landed online that gives us a few new looks at Christopher Nolan’s trilogy closer.  I’m happy to see some lightness and humor in the scenes between Christian Bale and Morgan Freeman, as I’m sure there will be plenty of doom and gloom with the conclusions of The Dark Knight legend.

Hit the jump to check out the TV spot, and if you missed it be sure to check out a sample of 14 minutes of Hans Zimmer’s score for the film.  The pic also stars Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Gary Oldman, Michael Caine, Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.  As you well know, The Dark Knight Rises opens on July 20th. [Update: A fantastic viral poster featuring Bane has landed online, and it’s now included after the jump.]

Warner 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.
