After the somber tone set by the latest trailer for The Dark Knight Rises and the much lighter, almost playful note that the last (much longer) tv spot ended on, this newest spot walks a line between them. Not much new footage, just that of the trailer rearranged, but I’ll be damned if I care. I’m lapping up whatever Warner Brothers wants to drop on us like Catwoman and a bowl of cream.
Speaking of Catwoman (Anne Hathaway), not only does she get to keep her hair in this (as opposed to Les Miserables) but she also gets to be sexy. Her latest poster, is just a leather clad leg ending in a very sharply spiked heel and a lipstick-print kiss.
Contrast that with the no-nonsense poster for Matthew Modine’s Deputy Commisisoner Foley. The only thing of note about this poster is that it points up the lack of a poster for Gary Oldman.
Beginning eight years after Batman took the fall for Harvey Dent/Two Face’s crimes, a new terrorist leader, Bane, overwhelms Gotham's finest, and the Dark Knight resurfaces to protect a city that has branded him an enemy.
Christopher Nolan’s epic conclusion to his Dark Knight trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, stars Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Gary Oldman, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Caine, Juno Temple and Morgan Freeman.It opens in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D on July 20.
