New ‘Dark Knight Rises’ trailer: Batman and Bane face off

Posted in: Movies

A new trailer for “The Dark Knight Rises” was just released, a month before the conclusion of Christopher Nolan’s epic Batman trilogy is slated to hit the big screen on July 20.

Although it contains much of the same footage introduced in the last trailer and the six-minute preview released in December, the new trailer adds several new scenes that will spark some speculation among fans of the comics, most notably a face-off between Batman (Christian Bale) and villain Bane (Tom Hardy).

In the scene, Bane calls the Caped Crusader by name — “Mr. Wayne.” We see a few blows, then the trailer cuts to Bane walking away, Batman’s shattered mask in hand, leaving fans to wonder if Nolan drew from the punishing fight scene that left Bruce Wayne with a broken back in the comics’ “Knightfall” arc.

The new trailer gives a glimpse of Anne Hathway’s Selina Kyle sporting cat ears, a closer look at the flying vehicle that could be the Batplane and Bane attacking what looks like the stock exchange, furthering the Occupy Wall Street vibe that earlier trailers seemed to channel.

The trailer also spotlighted some supporting characters, including John Blake (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman), Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman) and Alfred (Michael Caine), though apparently missing from the trailer is Marion Cotillard’s mysterious character, who shared a sexy kiss with Bruce Wayne in the last trailer.

Watch the video above and let us know what you think in the comments.
