‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Offers a Trilogy Trailer for Refreshment
We are so effing close to the release of ‘The Dark Knight Rises.’ The film opens this Friday and we’ve already reviewed it, but if you didn’t get into the trilogy screenings for tomorrow, and ran out of time to play catch up with the first two films, there’s now a trailer that features footage from all three movies, and sets the stage nicely for the new film.
We’re not sure if this is a fan-cut trailer, but regardless of who did it, it looks professional, and it gets across much of the drama of the last two movies, while also featuring some of the familiar footage from the new movie.
Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
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.
And here’s that trailer:
