Trailer Watch: The Dark Knight Rises Teaser Goes HD

The teaser trailer for The Dark Knight Rises is taking the last word of its title literally. The only scene that stands above the rest in the teaser (posted below) rises up into a blindingly white sky, as stalks of skyscrapers crumble to the street below leaving an outline (can you imagine) of the shape of a menacing bat. It's the same image as the recent teaser poster.

The teaser trailer for The Dark Knight Rises is taking the last word of its title literally. The only scene that stands above the rest in the teaser (posted below) rises up into a blindingly white sky, as stalks of skyscrapers crumble to the street below leaving an outline (can you imagine) of the shape of a menacing bat. It's the same image as the recent teaser poster.

This shot of disturbing urban destruction doesn’t have much to compete with—some of the scenes in this trailer have been patched together from the previous two films, while the others involve Gary Oldman crumpled in a hospital bed, pleading for Batman's return. The teaser certainly teases, as the voice of Liam Neeson intones: "If you make yourself more than just a man, if you devote yourself to an ideal, then you become something else entirely, a legend."

Beginning with roiling blue plumes of fire behind the Warner Bros. logo, the color palette is dark, blue and stormy, and it's a safe bet that the same will be true of the movie. The Dark Knight Rises, the third and final film in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Legend, brings back throaty Christian Bale as Batman. Warners will release the film in summer 2012.
