Hey folks, Harry here... Last night I was contacted by a few projectionists across the country that had received the 35mm teaser trailer for DARK KNIGHT RISES, which is being attached to HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS Part 2 - along with that JOHN CARTER teaser. Well Quint gave us the breakdown on that. I'll call this spy, NIGHTCRAWLER, for my own reasons - but here's what he sent in:
Alright sir, here it is. I'm doing this on my phone so I ask that you correct any obvious grammar and punctuation errors I may make.
-Trailer opens with studio logos set on top of the blue flame from Dark Knight.
Start panning up some buildings, but cut to the 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
Screen Card: EVERY HERO HAS AN END
Ra's (Liam Neeson) voice over: "If you make yourself more then just a man. If you devout yourself to be ideal. And you become something else entirely. A legend Mr. Wayne....A LEGEND!"
Screen Card: THE EPIC CONCLUSION
Cut to Gordon in a hospital bed laying on his side. Looks to be in serious pain. Has A breathing mask on. He 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(its 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 as if he 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 crumbing 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.
THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
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.
