Sick of "The Dark Knight Rises" and its relatively secret campaign? At least compared to say, Fox's "Prometheus," which seemingly has revealed every secret it has? (Probably not, but it sure feels that way). Well, you shouldn't be. Trust In Nolan (someone should make a T-shirt of that and give me some props).

Nothing is guaranteed to make the internet light up quite the same way as a new trailer for "The Dark Knight Rises," the third and final Batman film from Christopher Nolan, following "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight." No one, bar perhaps J.J. Abrams, has proved quite as expert at teasing audiences with promos without giving the game away, and the latest, curiously elegaic trailer for the film has followed the same path, making people ever more excited about the movie while still leaving them with plenty of questions about what's to come.

Christopher Nolan -- you know him as the well-dressed and refined, scarf-wearing filmmaker of Batman films like "The Dark Knight Rises" -- recently sat down the the Director's Guild Of America (DGA) for a lengthy chat about, well, almost every aspect of filmmaking. You literally need to print this one out, pull down the blinds and shut everything out to fully give this one your undivided attention, so we did the wise thing and broke it down into five highlights for you.

As we're sure you've heard around the interwebs in the past few days, "The Dark Knight Rises" finally received its official PG-13 rating. That's hardly a surprise. What some nerds tuned into (and were turned on by) was the MPAA's caution that the film contained "intense sequences of violence and action, some sensuality and language." Sensuality!? Bat-boner! And well, maybe now we know why.

'Rescue Me' Star Daniel Sunjata Teases More About Special Forces Op Character In 'The Dark Knight Rises'

While the name Daniel Sunjata likely won't ring too many bells, this writer slowly became familiar with him from his role as colorful firefighter Franco in FX's post-9/11 drama "Rescue Me." So imagine our surprise when, at the demise of the aforementioned show, his name made all the film blogsphere headlines late last year as he was cast in Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises." Of course, Sunjata's role was reported simply as a "special forces op" but it looks like the actor has revealed a little more insight about his role and his experience. And of course, if you're sensitive to anything regarding the film, there are slight spoilers.

Other than the back-and-forth over whether Christopher Nolan had "fixed" the sound on the IMAX prologue that's been playing before "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol" (Summary: he had! Except, oh, wait, he hadn't), 2012 has been quiet (so far) for what's widely expected to be the biggest film of the year, Batman three-quel "The Dark Knight Rises." But given the general flood of rumor, conjecture and minutiae around the eagerly-anticipated project, that couldn't last long, and the dam has broken in the last few days.

At the close of 2011, Warner Bros. hit us with a tease of 2012's biggest blockbuster event, the trailer for "The Dark Knight Rises." What's interesting about this trailer isn't what it reveals as much as what it hides and obscures.

Yes, you may have seen a cruddy version of Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises" trailer a few days ago, the third and final film in his epic Batman trilogy, or the big-screen version in front of "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows," but if you struggled to hear and see what it all was about, behold the beautiful, high-definition version that is not only incredibly impressive, but looks wickedly ominous and striking. The wonderful thing that Nolan does with all his trailers is make the stakes of his films look incredibly high, as in do-or-die, and "The Dark Knight Rises" looks no different. This looks dark with deep and powerful consequences around every corner. It appears that some kind of army is rising and it's something that neither Batman nor Gotham has ever faced.
