The Dark Knight Teaser Trailer Gets Officially Released

We’ve all seen the low quality bootleg versions that have been around since late last week. Here’s the Hi – Res version:

Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ “The Dark Knight Rises” is the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy,

Leading an all-star international cast, Oscar® winner Christian Bale (“The Fighter”) again plays the dual role of Bruce Wayne/Batman. The film also stars Anne Hathaway, as Selina Kyle; Tom Hardy, as Bane; Oscar® winner Marion Cotillard (“La Vie en Rose”), as Miranda Tate; and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, as John Blake.

Returning to the main cast, Oscar® winner Michael Caine (“The Cider House Rules”) plays Alfred; Gary Oldman is Commissioner Gordon; and Oscar® winner Morgan Freeman (“Million Dollar Baby”) reprises the role of Lucius Fox.

The screenplay is written by Christopher Nolan and Jonathan Nolan, story by Christopher Nolan & David S. Goyer. The film is produced by Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Charles Roven, who previously teamed on “Batman Begins” and the record-breaking blockbuster “The Dark Knight.” The executive producers are Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Kevin De La Noy and Thomas Tull, with Jordan Goldberg serving as co-producer. The film is based upon characters appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. Batman was created by Bob Kane

CBM is reporting these spoilers take with a grain of salt:
Gordon in Hospital Scene:

Gordon is in hospital for smoke inhalation after Bane sets fire to a building that Gordon and SWAT officers are in. Gordon barely escapes. Bruce Wayne has hung up the cape and cowl prior and goes to the hospital in his Lamborginhi as Bruce Wayne and before entering puts on a black face mask which leads to a fight with a Police Officer.

Bane Close Up Scene:

This is Bane’s first scene in Gotham and is when he arrives via boat at Gotham Docks. He and his goons take out the security guards and the one Bane takes out he leans over which is the screen close up.

Climbing the Well Scene:

That is Bruce Wayne climbing the well and is set outside the Indian Castle although I don’t think it is set in India in the film (unsure?) and is Bruce Wayne escaping from the League of Shadows with the castle being one of their locations and training facilities.

Bane vs Batman Scene

That is actually the climax battle where Bane has lured Batman to their lair for a final showdown and is in a warehouse near the docks I believe. Batman initially battles dozens of goons before Bane shows himself not scared of a fight and wants it 1 on 1. Catwoman actually arrives and assists Batman in defeating Bane and helping him escape. Catwoman fights goons while Batman confronts Bane in a brutal battle. I’m told it gets really brutal and Bane IS taller or at least the same size as Batman even though in real life Tom Hardy is smaller than Bale.

The Dark Knight Rises opens in theaters everywhere 07/20/12
