The highly anticipated trailer for “The Dark Knight Rises,” set to release in theatres July 20, 2012, is officially out. Christian Bale returns as Bruce Wayne (Batman), and joining the cast is Joseph Gordon-Levitt as his new ally in the Gotham Police Department, along with Anne Hathaway as Selena Kyle (Catwoman). The teaser trailer is thin on news, but shows the ultimate villian Tom Hardy’s Bane rising up, Gotham being blown up and ripped to shreds, and Batman speeding around on his infamous Batmobile.

The majority of the clip focuses on Commissioner Gordon, played by Gary Oldman, pleading for help saying, “The Batman has to come back.” Bale questions Gordon with, “What if the Batman doesn’t exist anymore?” And Gordon replies, “He must. He must.”

Will “The Dark Knight Rises” Be Released in 3-D?

“The Dark Knight Rises” has changed filming locations from Chicago to Pittsburg. The city of Gothem has an erry, dark, and unique look to it, so we all hope that same feel comes through in the new location of Pittsburg. “The Dark Knight Rises” will be full of explosions, car crashes, fights, and even some snow. The epic conclusion to the Dark Knight legend hits theatres July 20, 2012.
