The official trailer of the Batman: The Dark Knight Rises was released today early morning.
The trailer gives the lay of the land of “peacetime” Gotham City, and eventually builds its way up to Bane’s insane attack on a football stadium.
The Dark Knight Rises is an upcoming superhero film directed by Christopher Nolan and written by Nolan and his brother Jonathan. Based on the DC Comics character Batman, the film will be the third installment in Nolan’s Batman film series, and is a sequel to Batman Begins (2005) and The Dark Knight (2008). It stars Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, and Morgan Freeman as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Alfred Pennyworth, James Gordon, and Lucius Fox, respectively. The film will take place eight years after the events of The Dark Knight and will introduce the characters of Selina Kyle andBane—portrayed by Anne Hathaway and Tom Hardy—two villains from the Batman mythology.
The film has an estimated budget of $250 million.Nolan has elected not to film in 3-D, but has instead stated that he intends to focus on improving image quality and scale using the IMAX format. The Dark Knight Rises will feature more scenes shot in IMAX than The Dark Knight. Nolan confirmed the Joker would not return in the third film, and dismissed rumors that he considered using unused footage of Heath Ledger from The Dark Knight.
The Dark Knight Rises is scheduled for release in the United Kingdom, United States, and Canada on July 20, 2012, by Warner Bros and surely happens to be the movie on our “Most Awaited movie of 2012” list!
