If you haven't gotten your fill of new Dark Knight Rises footage by now, this new Nokia-sponsored trailer should brighten up your day. Here we see plenty of familiar shots that have been showcased in the various trailers and TV spots already, but there is also some much-needed new footage of Tom Hardy as Bane. And it turns out that he knows exactly who Batman is under the mask.
The scope and tone here further prove that this isn't just a comic book movie; it's an event. In a summer filled with letdowns, The Dark Knight Rises looks to shatter that trend by giving audiences a deep plot, memorable characters, and more emotion than we have seen from Hollywood all year. Let's just hope it lives up to the hype.
The Dark Knight Rises will hit theaters on July 20.
