Nokia have sent over a link to their exclusive trailer for The Dark Knight Rises. Apparently it hasn’t been shown in cinema venues yet and was uploaded today. It isn’t long now until director Christopher Nolan and his leading Bat take their bows for what will be an astonishing trilogy destined to be re-watched and discussed for a very long time indeed. They’d have to be pretty darn crazy to screw The Dark Knight Rises up. But people are definitely expecting a crime-drama/superhero masterpiece and will Nolan deliver?
Find out when The Dark Knight Rises opens in UK cinemas on 20th July. Nolan has shot over one hour of the flick on Imax cameras – which suggests it is going to be pretty stunning.
