Remember July 2012? The Internet was abuzz about a little film called The Dark Knight Rises, the third film in Christopher Nolan‘s Batman trilogy. After an unprecedented amount of hype and anticipation, the actual release of the film started an unstoppable furor of online discussion regarding the details of the plot. Many forgave plot holes in favor of Nolan’s cinematic eye. Others denied their existence. But many people harped on ever little inconsistency and WTF moment that occurs in the film, to the rage/delight of other fans.
But that was months ago and even with the film hitting Blu-ray Tuesday, most of us have calmed way down and moved onto the next thing. (Maybe Star Wars Episode VII.) Leave it to the Honest Trailer team at ScreenJunkies to reopen old wounds, though, with their hilarious and brutal “honest trailer” for The Dark Knight Rises. Five minutes that’ll either make you laugh out loud, or throw your computer across the room.
Thanks to ScreenJunkies for putting such a funny period on this debate long after we thought it was over. Here’s the video.
Huge props to the team for getting Red Letter Media to cameo.
I think the trailer pretty much speaks for itself. Do you still think this is a conversation worth having?
