First look: New Dark Knight Rises trailer

The new Batman film Dark Knight Rises will be opening in theaters July 20, 2012, just after the end of next year’s Comic-Con.  But right now thaters are showing the new full trailer with Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows, and below is a link to that full trailer on You Tube.

It includes more (but not a lot) views of Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle, and strongly hints at an end in this film to the caped crusader.  Maybe this will finally set up the franchise for what we all want… finally a Frank Miller’s Dark Knight Returns film adaptation?

The trailer also shows the hideous Bane played by the equally rough looking Tom Hardy (Star Trek Nemesis).  I think Bane is the weakest of all Batman villains, but so far this round of Batman films has proven to be pretty good so I’ll reserve judgment until I actually see it.

Happily, Christian Bale’s new batsuit is as cool as ever.  Enjoy the trailer!
