Just yesterday, new Bat-stuff included another full-length theatrical trailer, as well as the entirety of Hans Zimmer's score streaming online.
But you've already seen those, and today you're more interested in the first clip. The short excerpt runs just about 35 seconds and consists of a dialogue scene atop a police station. The clip premiered during Gary Oldman's appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and appropriately enough, it features Oldman as Commissioner Gordon and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake discussing the disappearance of Batman.
Thanks to Comic Book Movie for posting the clip online.
Well that was an efficient setup. Moving on to the IMAX poster. Last week, a poster promoting the IMAX showings of The Dark Knight Rises put Batman in a deified light, and we assumed that the heavens-parting IMAX poster would be the one handed out to lucky moviegoers attending midnight IMAX screenings. Not so, it seems. Folks with the foresight to pick up midnight IMAX tickets as long as six months ago will instead get a free copy of the poster below, which represents a sort of satanic flipside to the previous IMAX poster.
The poster premiered in all its muzzled glory at Fandango.
Christoper Nolan closes out his DC Comics trilogy, once again with a story devised by himself and his Batman Begins co-writer David S. Goyer. Jonathan Nolan, who wrote the screenplay for The Dark Knight, worked with his brother on the script this time.
Tom Hardy beats the hell out of Batman as Bane, while Anne Hathaway plays Selina Kyle, a woman of dubious allegiances. Other new players include Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Juno Temple, Aidan Gillen, Thomas Lennon, and Matthew Modine. Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Michael Caine, and Morgan Freeman are all back for one last go at their comic book characters.
The Dark Knight Rises arrives in theaters next Friday, July 20th.
