Yesterday’s reveal of the first poster for The Dark Knight Rises more or less confirmed last week’s rumor that a trailer would be attached to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 this weekend. It’s still a few days from appearing online, most likely, but several sites have had projectionist spies who got the trailer shipped to them send in a description. Plus, an image has leaked that makes this seem very legit. No spoilers above the jump though, read the info below.
Trailer opens with studio logos set on top of the blue flame from Dark Knight.
Start panning up some buildings, but to screen card. EVERY HERO HAS A JOURNAY.
Cuts to a shot from Begins with Bruce walking up to that Village when he’s looking for Ra’s
Screen Card: EVERY HERO HAS AN END
Ra’s voice over: If you make yourself more than just a man. If you devout yourself to be ideal. And you become something else entirely. A legend Mr. Wayne….A LEGEND!
Screen Card: THE EPIC CONCLUSION
Cut to Gordon in a hospital bed laying on his side. Looks to be in serious pain. Has A breathing mask on. Is talking to someone.
Gordon: We were in this together, then you were gone…….Now this Evil rises. The Batman…..HAS to come back.(all this is said in a very raspy voice, in much pain)
Bruce/Batman(its not shown who he’s talking to, so don’t know in which form Bruce is visiting him in. My guess would be as Bruce Wayne) : What if he doesn’t exist anymore?
This part is the hardest to understand in the entire trailer, I listened to it at least 10 times but the score is over powering here and Gordon is having trouble talking. It sounds like if says Humor me while trying to laugh. I might be wrong here, full disclosure.
During this quick talk we’re shown a shot of the bat cycle when it drives up the ramp from Dark Knight, Gordon destroying the Act Signal all cut in with the Hospital. As well as super fast flashes of Bane’s face.
Pan up crumbling buildings to reveal the teaser poster, the camera zooms to the white opening and on an all white screen the title appears. The score reaches a fever pitch before turning over to The chanting from the website.
THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
Fades to black and then we see Batman backing away from something, then Bane enters from the left side of the screen. Very quick shot then the trailers done.
And if you don’t believe it, check out this image a reader sent Collider. Sounds like something right out of the above text:

That’s awesome and what’s most exciting is how Nolan is embracing the trilogy concept, working in footage from the first two films as well as new stuff from this one.
Have any of you seen this yet?
