The Dark Knight Rises teaser trailer

First look at the biggest film of 2012.

In case you got stitched up by your local cinema and they didn’t show this before Harry Potter last weekend, take a look (or in our case, a ninth viewing) of the above teaser for The Dark Knight Rises. It feels like early stuff, with footage of the previous films added in and Liam Neeson’s voiceover from Batman Begins, but who cares? We can’t actually complain. We got a thrilling first look at our most anticipated film of next year. And that final shot, of Batman facing Bane – well, it’s all superb. It makes us want to read Knightfall again, even with the ridiculous Nineties haircuts on Bane’s henchmen.

The Dark Knight Rises is out July 20th 2012.
