In it’s first appearance preceding Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows, The Dark Knight Rises has most likely made movie goers forget what they paid half of their paycheck to go see in the first place. Who wants to watch Robert Downey Jr. charismatically bumble his way through a mystery now? We want Batman!
Was there ever a person who asked where the story would continue on now that Heath Ledger had passed and his villain Joker could never be topped? I think those voices might be silenced for a bit. The “epic conclusion” is nothing short and does not disappoint. From it’s ominous opening to Bane’s decimation of the football field, The Dark Knight Rises looks like it can give us the grand finale this trilogy has been waiting for. Christian Bale is seen mostly as Bruce rather than our caped crusader, and Anne Hathaway looks absolutely brilliant as a more realistic Selina Kyle, though no glimpses of her Catwoman – most likely due to the fact that we’ve seen so much of them over the last few months. Gary Oldman, Michael Caine and Joseph Gordon-Levitt get just mere seconds of screentime, but manages to leave us salivating for more.
The Dark Knight Rises will hit theaters on July 20, 2012. Watch the embedded trailer quick before it’s taken down!Please enter the url to a YouTube video.
