The Dark Knight Rises official trailer shines an unforgiving light on Batman’s arduous challenge yet: to defeat Bane.
After the teaser, the trailer gives audiences a greater view of Bane’s demon-like demeanour and introduces Catwoman into Gotham City (played by Anna Hathway).
Released by Warner Brothers earlier this week, the trailer had hit 12.5 million views within the first 24 hours of release, breaking the existing record for iTunes trailer downloads.
“The trailer went online on Monday at 10:00 am and was soon being watched again (and again) by fans, who parsed over every enigmatic detail”, as quoted from Moviefone.
Following the trailer, Warner Bros. recently released new images for The Dark Knight Rises, unveiling Batman’s new wicked weapon and not forgetting, his wondrous Batpod. Images also include Bane in his newly stacked half-armour suit.
Starring Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Gary Oldman, the Dark Knight Rises is set 8 years after the events of The Dark Knight (a prior instalment released in 2008) where terrorist leader Bane, played by Tom Hardy, pushes Gotham City into yet another series of bloodcurdling events. Batman, played by Christian Bale, returns with an everlasting impression to destroy evil and to end the legend, for good.
With its trailer exhibiting a considerable impression of what the film depicts, it would be a long wait for the full film to be released.
20 July 2012 is the release date for the film in the UK.
