International Minute-Long DARK KNIGHT RISES Trailer With New Stuff!

Nordling here.

The trailers for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES promised a more somber, darker affair, but what we've been seeing recently seems to bring more levity and fun.  I'm sure THE DARK KNIGHT RISES will bring plenty of "MY PARENTS ARE DEAD!" soon enough, but I'm enjoying the lighter tone of the snippets we've seen so far, especially this one, with Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman) ribbing Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) a bit about his "retirement."  Like ROCKY III, we all know Batman's going to get back into the ring with Clubber Bane.  Until then, enjoy:

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES opens July 20th.

Nordling, out. Follow me on Twitter!

    Scorchy's bike wheel question

    by Particularly Hard Vato

    I think that inertia just allows the wheel to spin and flip over to keep it up. it just kind of flips... and looks badass while doing it. I get the feeling that it only operates at high speed too, so the wheel flipping doesn't damage the metal guns and stuff on the wheels. Also- keep in mind those guns on the wheel sides are serious metal- they likely wouldn't get crushed. I think.

  • That cheesy fucking recall method is for shit comedians not fucking seriously awesome films. Nolan just went down in my estimation. Join the cliched gimmick.

    The answer to the bike wheel question...

    by Royston Lodge

    The Batbike wheel can rotate like that, and the BatCopter thing can fly despite its lack of aerodynamics, for the same reason that a man in tights can fly with no discernible source of propulsion: The laws of physics are very different in the DC universe.

  • Carmine Falcone didn't cause Thomas Wayne's nifty monorail to fall apart from neglect, or force all those homeless people to live under the overpass, or stop picking up the fucking garbage. That was all down to the city government. If Green Arrow exists in the Nolanverse, I bet he really hates Batman.

    It is a lighter film

    by rahtard

    I have no idea why people think its going to be darker. What Goyer and Nolan has discussed about the ending is similar to the ending of Spider-man 3 and how Raimi said it would be emotional. It doesn't mean he will die, it means he accepts his role and becomes the hero we expect him to be. Unless the reference to Bruce and Alfred going to the circus is supposed to be emotional.

    I guess that makes sense - he's injured and out of practice, then gets his ass kicked by Bane, then rebounds at the end of the movie. Still, I wonder what messed his back up in the first place (he seemed to be running fine after leaving Dent's body). Should be a blast, I can't wait.

    by KevinMuller

    I have been a Batman fan since I was 5. I always wanted a Batman done respectfully. These films are so much more than comic films...they could stand alone as films in a genre. BB- Thriller, TDK- Crime Drama... They will reboot this but it won't match the level of epicness that Nolan has brought to this character. July 20 is going to a bittersweet good by to what has been a great ride.

    I challenge anyone to say they like Bale's Batman voice!

    by cgih8r

    I have never seen anyone defend it and I'm convinced that we all agree that it is annoying. I watched Batman Begins the other day and noticed that for the 1st contact with Gordan scene in his office and when they are talking on top of the stairway at Arkham and pretty much any time Batman talks to Katie Holmes (minus the subway scene) Bale uses the right voice and it is spot on for Batman. Beyond that the voice becomes...well you know. Aaaand his lines become dumber like when he confronts the Joker and says "where's the detonator?" Really? He becomes a blunt force instrument that doesn't speak intelligently.

    NEWS! RYAN REYNOLDS to be the next BATMAN

    by film11

    Sadly, this is no joke. And Duncan Jones is wanted to direct.

  • Seriously. Thats why I always hated Conroys portrayal. He just talks like a Knight, not a urban Batman monster myth that scares criminals into shitting their pants. Bale does sound exactly like that. I love his take on the voice.

  • July 6, 2012, 4:27 a.m. CST

    Retired Batman?

    by Larry_Sanders

    Doesn't sound like any Batman I know. I'm willing to go with Nolan's version and see where he takes us, but the premise up front feels wrong and I doubt this will be better than TDK.

    "I've never understood the bike's front wheel rotation"

    by buggerbugger

    I always imagined it has the ability to swivel 360 degrees like a trolley wheel in certain situations - perhaps it's a built-in function that kicks in as soon as the machine recognizes that it's spinning out of control, or it's activated manually by the rider?

    "Oh yeah, and Catwoman dies. As does Bane... unsurprisingly."

    Re. the whole "September 7" thing...

    by King_Knut

    I'll throw my hat in the ring too. Other examples of our transatlantic cousins (or more specifically, their news outlets) turning the English language into some ADD-riddled lexicon "fo' tha kidz", which is beginning to catch in the UK as well, I am sad to note: 1) It's the second world war, not World War II. It wasn't a fucking sequel. 2) Nine Eleven? NINE ELEVEN?? What the fuck is that? A subsidiary of Seven Eleven? That is utterly nondescript - it gives no indication of the nature of the event, it's barely even recognisable as a date. It relies entirely on context or prior knowledge, which defeats the object of having language in the first place. The date is the eleventh of September (or if you like, September the eleventh), and the event should be referred to as the September the eleventh attacks. Making something sound "punchier" is not a justifiable reason for any major media outlet reduce the English language to a series of lolspeak-style epithets. If you can't be bothered to use the language properly, then journalism is not the right career for you, I'm afraid. And all the rest of you are at best sheep, at worst idiots for allowing this bastardisation to become a fait accompli. Pillocks.

    It doesn't sit right because Batman himself has barely been in the trailers. There's a bit were Bane stops a punch, a flash of him in a sewer and a shot of him decked out in a pink glow. OH and the thing with the gun thing. In a minute long trailer for a Batman film Batman himself has appeared in them less than any other character except possible Catwoman, and I'm guessing it's because she looks and sounds a little bit shit. Look at the Marvel trailers, the title character everywhere, look at this bridges and machinery and Morgan Freeman.

    Nolan won't kill Bruce, at worst,Bruce will retire to act as a backer and mentor a new Batman (Levitt) a la Batman Beyond. Bane will be easier to understand, Ra's is a cameo shot at the end. HATHAWAY'S CATWOMAN CLAD ASS WILL LOOK LIKE TWO ARMADILLOS HUMPING IN A PILLOWCASE. That is all.

    by F This

    People have used World War II and second World War interchangably for a long time. World War II is not some name that was recently invented to make the war relevant "fo tha kidz." It is a rather stupid thing to bitch about. Regarding "9-11" (Nine Eleven), say it to just about any person around the world and they will know exatly what you mean. It's not a matter of making it punchier. It is a shorthand method of mentioning a date that has worldwide significance. The context and prior knowledge in this case is universal. Are you trying to say that you Brits NEVER shorten a date like the 6th day of July to 6-7? I hate most news outlets as much as anyone. The examples of stupidity in TV news outlets are too numerous to count, but the examples above are incredibly lame IMO and reek of a sorry attempt to rip apart "those dumb Yanks."

    If you consider the 3rd movies in trilogies that 1) have been made by the original directors, and 2) were planned as trilogies, the numbers aren't that bad.

    Yes, Heath died, I am aware, but its not disrespectful or inappropriate to continue his work. This movie is missing that element of fun that the Joker brings to the table. He should be broken out in the prison scene and play some kind of role here. To ignore him all together is more disrespectful than to include him or at least to reference him. The Dark Knight still gets watched by people and they arent offended. Why cant you at least reference the events of that movie.

    Avengers already rules the summer, TDKR isnt going to beat 600M+ domestic or 1.5B total, so you need to aim lower for this movie. Honestly I doubt it will do as well as TDK, no Heath death, no Oscar talk no Joker. Bane is a poor substitute for the Joker and ladies hate Hathaway as catwoman in the previews so thats not going to push the movie into TDK range much less avengers range.

    Very good advice! I love the first two Nolan films, but there is no guarantee he won't Spider-Man 3/X-men Last Stand it up with this.

    Its the joker with a cause, a larger army, and bigger bombs... So, it's not the joker at all then. Hater.

    and as for wishing you knew nothing about the movie, you don't. The film is 2 hrs, 44 mins. We've seen maybe 15 minutes of footage in all. Hater.

    Sounds like you've got no interest in seeing TDKR, so I recommend not clicking on any links, and not going to see it. Or, you could write down all the reasons you think it will suck from how little you actually know about it. And a Hater is someone who looks for, and focuses on, the negative aspects of something. Hater.

    re: JGL (spoilers)

    by IWasInJuniorHighDickhead

    reactions from the screening are coming in, one guy confirms that JGL doesn't become Batman; he is 'an idealistic beat cop, nothing more'. Whether to believe it or not...

    and he is categorically not Robin.

    I want the real Batman

    by chris k

    These Nolan movies are ok, but they lack a true faithfulness to The Batman I grew up with. In the next reboot, I want to see Bats, in a cleanly edited clearly choreographed, martial arts beat down of 5 to 10 guys (he's Bruce Lee with a cape for cryin out loud) I want to see a movie where Batman is the MAIN character and focus (not Ras, the joker or Bane) and it needs to be clear that Bats greatest weapon is his brilliant mind (he's smarter than ANY villain). I want to see Bats use technology that's impressive but doesn't over shadow his physical or mental gifts. Basically, the reboot should portray him as Sherlock Holmes, Bruce lee and James bond rolled into one. While still a human at the peak of conditioning but not invulnerable, his intellect should be shown as invincible. Am I wrong in wanting this and saying that Nolan's Batman falls short?

    The truth behind Bale's voice.

    by death metal batman

    Batman moonlighted in Gotham's underground metal scene. He fronted Gotham-burg death metal pioneers BAT THE GATES in the early 90's. Bats also lent his vocal "talent" to DARK KNIGHT TRANQUILLITY for a bit. He retired when inferior metalcore knock-offs like Utility Belt and All Bat Remains copped his style. Ah, death metal humor...I'm just here to entertain myself.

  • ...spoiled it, that is. If this was 1999, AICN would have already had a script review of this.

    I just saw it at a screening


    there are 2 scenes which seem to be constructed from deleted scenes from TDK with Ledger as the Joker. Or it was a CGI Ledger, I couldn't tell. Also, Robin makes a brief appearance played by Ben Affleck.
