The New Dark Knight Rises Trailer Is Here!

I know — video games, right? But come on... this is the trailer for The Dark Knight Rises for goodness sake!

I have to admit, I'm not the greatest fan of Christopher Nolan. I've enjoyed the Batman movies so far, but not to the extent of other folks, and I thought Inception was a bit mince. But, yeah, this trailer is schmexy.


    Catwoman... Bane... Talia Al Ghul... One other I won't spoil... This is going to be amazing :D

      I thought the Riddler was supposed to be making an appearance too? Guess he got dropped.

        Levitt's name is still in the credits at the end. Guess he just wasn't explosive enough for the trailer

          levitt is in this trailer, somewhere towards the end bursting thru a door

            I dont think that JGL is the Riddler. As far as I know, there is no Riddler?

            I heard a rumour that he's going to be playing Dick Grayson instead of the Riddler.

            Could prove interesting either way.

              Nah dude, I think he's playing the Falcone kid

                Maybe JGL is playing J-PV?

                  Done a little digging around. Apparently his character is "Officer John Blake". A beat cop.


      Isn't Talia Al Ghul technically a spoiler? I'm not sure if it's been confirmed directly, but it certainly looks like it'll be a twist in the movie. Also Riddler was never confirmed or considered for this movie.

        It's not the Riddler. JGL is playing a cop who sides himself with Batman. I don't know the level of involvement his character has with the movie beyond he's a named character but I'm betting he has something to do with the resolution of the movie...

        What I DO know is that Talia is in it, Bane is in it, Catwoman is in it, another villain is in it and makes a very significant cameo tied to at least 3 other names I've just said... ;)

        Falcones dead and gone apparently. Jokers NOT dead, is mentioned but not seen apparently? These are just going by Nolans own words and others who have worked on the film.

        Oh and the fact its an actual ending to the series, there will be no continuation to the series beyond this. WB is already looking at rebooting in a few years with a more comic-oriented Batman instead of a ''reality based'' Batman. To be honest, I don't mind that. Nolan gave us a brilliant real world Batman, lets find someone who can give us a BRILLIANT Comic bound Batman with all the fantastic that comes with a comic world.

    Not the greatest fan of Christopher Nolan....
    Not a fan of Christopher Nolan...
    Does not like Christopher Nolan...
    Hates Christopher Nolan...


      In all honesty, whether you like the plots themselves or not, I don't see how you can dislike Christopher Nolan as a director, the man knows cinematography, pace and good acting at least as well, probably better than any of this generation's directors.
      Excepting you're the kind of person that likes Fast and the Furious .... you're not are you Mark ? >_> Not sure I want to know :P

      PS: He's the freaking reason we get to see Michael Caine every couple of years, so many props for that alone!

        Yeah - I agree. Whatever you think of his films (because they may not be your thing), he's easily the best action writer/director in a long time. The guy has style, vision and skill. Inception may have had its flaws, but it was way deeper than most blockbusters.

    How DARE you post something that is relevant to a wide range of readers who typically like games as well as comics!

    Be off with you!

    PS: Is this movie out today? No? ARSE!

    This waiting 6+ months for a movie comes out is retarded. Give me a month of full on crazy hype instead please, I'm really over the dripfeed.

    Sadly I still fall into the trap, and am still hyped.

      I read "Sadly i'll still fap into the trap"

    Cool. I can't wait to see Bane break Batman in half.

    Wait. I thought this was a video game blog? Kotaku is an entertainment blog now?

      Anyone else here like pie?

      I like pie.

        Love pie.

        What is your favourite kind of pie?

          Steak and Onion
          Beef and Guinness
          Spinach, onion, and potato

            kinda partial to a lamb and rosemary pie myself.

            LOVE steak and onion! Although my first pie of choice is a curry pie. Yum.

              Beef, cheese and bacon for me. So decadent

                Totally. Steak, cheese and bacon; the king of all pies!

          American pie

      Yeah who is this batman dude anyway? Is he actually in any video games?

    If you can find it, get a look at the 6 minute prologue with Bane and one of the best mid-air stunts I've ever seen. Some poor sods (Mainly the guy writing this post) went and saw mission impossible 4 with the misconception that they would be showing the dark knight rises prologue before it.


    Also, Bane sort of sounds like Pyro, in that you only really get to hear half of what he is saying.

      I say post when I should say comment.

    I just 'whooped' at a movie trailer for the first time in my life.

    why is there an apple watermark on it?

      Original trailer at ;)

    I can't really think of how else they could have done him, but Bane doesn't look that cool.

      My boy, any doubts you have about Tom Hardy as Bane, will die after you go see the movie WARRIOR...

    I am very interested to see why you thought inception was mince. You cant just say that and not at least give us a reason Mark.

      Are you ready for my boring controversial opinion?!

      I just thought it was a series of boring set-pieces held together with dull, pointless exposition.

      I wanted to like it. I even bought it on Blu-ray because I thought maybe I was just tired and grumpy when I saw it in the cinema. But, nah, just didn't enjoy it.

        I think Nolan is good at making movies that are better the second time you see them, namely Memento (one of my favourite movies) and the prestige. Inception falls into the need to watch twice category as well.

          The Prestige falls into the need to watch 18 times category. Hell I think I'll go watch it now.

            Prestige and Memento are better films than Inception.

              Agree 100%, however their very different films - not sure I would compare them.

                Pretty much this. They're different films, I don't really think one is better than the other, I personally like Prestige > Inception > Memento (he's simply a better director now than when he did memento, as you'd expect from greater experience).

        it's funny, I had a minor concussion and hated the crap out of Batman Begins when I saw it in the cinema... didn't help that we were also 2nd to front row, watching that movie 2nd to front row with a mild concussion was the suckiest thing ever.

        I thought the opposite Mark! I thought the action scenes dragged and were not very inventive considering we are literally inside the infinite possibility of someones mind (and the coolest thing is shooting some guys on a snowmobile like an old Bond film?) and the exposition was the enjoyable part!

    One you see what's on Banes mouthguard, you can't get it out of your head.

    Jesus, between Batman and Bane half of this movie is going to be spoken by mumblers.

    Doesn't stop me from being excited.

    Hmm, sadly underwhelmed. :( I will still be there lining up to watch this movie, but no longer hold out hope that it will match Batman Begins.

    This movie is going to be back breakingly good :D

    I love to video games.

      Thats a little off topic Tracey?
      We're talking about The Batman here...

    There were two "holy fuck" moments in that trailer for me, and it got me excited, but it didn't feel like the best trailer ever.

    I need to lower my expectations for the movie, otherwise I'm going to only 'like it'. :P

    Sold. Saw the 6 minute prologue and hot damn, can't wait to see that on an Imax screen. :)

    My word, that movie looks like it's going to be awesome.

    BTW - anyone who wants to point to my hissy fit in the Star Wars article earlier this morning, this post is different for two reasons:
    1. Mark acknowledged that this has nothing to do with games
    2. It's Batman

    Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Caine, Marion Cotillard. It's an Inception reunion!

      Don't forget the mastermind of the whole scheme... THE SPINNING TOP!

    So.... Batman:AC:The Movie? Could be good. Could also be really shit... we will have to wait and see how well it all works.
