What to expect from The Dark Knight Rises trailer

The first trailer for The Dark Knight Rises is released later this week. And a description has appeared as to what we should expect…

We wouldn’t want to give you the impression that we, and a large slice of the Internet, are looking forward to the debut of the first trailer for The Dark Knight Rises later this week. However, Collider has managed to speak to a projectionist in the States who has seen it, and has also provided a full description as to what to expect from it.

The trailer is being attached to prints of Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2 In the US, and as such, it’s started being delivered to cinemas. And, according to the site, here’s what you can expect…

“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 (it’s 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.”
