The new Dark Knight Rises trailer is epic [Video]

Anyone who’s a fan of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight series (by which I mean everyone everywhere) of movies should prepare to be very excited. A new trailer has landed.

So if you’re sitting in your office right now, sit down and do whatever you must to suppress the whoops of delight you’ll want to let out at various points in the trailer.

Of course if you’re one of those ultra-dedicated fans, you will have already seen it. People participating in The Dark Knight Rises‘ elaborate viral campaign were able to unlock the video before its official release.

This trailer concentrates heavily on Batman’s nemesis for the film (Bane), Gotham’s uncertain future and the role of Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman.

The trailer is by far the darkest and edgiest from a series which helped spark the current vogue for and edgy comic book adaptations.

The Dark Knight Rises lands in cinemas on 20 July.
