'The Dark Knight Rises' trailer leaks online
Camcorder footage of the latest Batman promo hits the internet
The teaser trailer for The Dark Knight Rises has leaked online. While the fan filmed footage of the trailer may be of poor quality, it does seem to be the genuine article.
Opening with the Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures logo, we go on to see footage of Bruce Wayne in Batman Begins with a voiceover from the first film's chief villain, Ra's al Ghul, explaining what Bruce must become.
Captioned text tells us, 'Every hero has a journey' and then 'Every journey has an end'. The text appears as a replication of the final shot of The Dark Knight, Batman fleeing, ends.
We then find Commissioner Gordon looking slightly worse for wear in a hospital bed telling Bruce Wayne that they are “in this together”.
As Gordon begs for the return of Batman, we see our first glimpse of Bane. The new footage is inter-cut with a swooping camera scaling the side of a building before shooting up into the sky which forms the already iconic poster, released yesterday.
If you don't fancy scouring the net and watching a poor quality version the trailer is believed to be attached to Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part Two which is released Friday (July 15).
The Dark Knight Rises is due for release in the UK on July 20, 2012. For more check out the official The Dark Knight Rises website.
You can try and catch a glimpse of it below, but the quality is shoddy and it'll probably be taken down pretty soon...
