Warner Bros. has released the third trailer for Christopher Nolan’s conclusion to his Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises and it is the best look so far of what we are heading into. While an aura of mystery still clouds the film, we get to see tons of new footage that display the amount of mayhem Bane (Tom Hardy) will set upon Gotham City.
The trailer also points to what should be the most character-driven storyline of the trilogy, most particularly as far as Batman/Bruce Wayne is concerned. In any case, this has only reminded me how much I’m excited for this movie. Take a look at the new trailer below and let us know what you think!
The Dark Knight Rises opens on July 20.
