New 'Dark Knight Rises' trailer
Share with others:
Pittsburgh places and faces (well, jerseys in some cases) are all over a new trailer for "The Dark Knight Rises."
The preview, being shown with "Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol" -- and separate from the prologue at the Carnegie Science Center -- opens with a boy singing the national anthem at Heinz Field, shows Anne Hathaway's Selina Kyle cautioning Bruce Wayne that there's a storm coming and teases the explosion at the football field.
You see Mayor Ravenstahl, briefly, in his Rapid City Monuments football uniform and Pittsburgh Steeler Hines Ward running down the field ahead of a cluster of explosions. He is wearing No. 86 on his Gotham Rogues black and gold jersey.
The two-minute trailer has a quick, tender scene in which Michael Caine's butler, Alfred, tells Bruce Wayne, "You are as precious to me as you were to your own mother and father. I swore to them that I would protect you and I haven't."
Tom Hardy's Bane swaggers around in face mask and shearling-trimmed jacket, the fights choreographed on the steps of Mellon Institute are visible and Gary Oldman, Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt make appearances. In a chilling scene, Bane tells Batman, "When Gotham is ashes, you have my permission to die."
The movie opens July 20 and, if possible, looks better than its predecessors.
