The first full trailer for The Dark Knight Rises has hit the net, and it’s everything you wanted and more.
We got The Dark Knight Rises teaser trailer way back in July with Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2, but this trailer (which arrived with Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows) gives a much more substantial glimpse at what we can expect from the finished film.
Set eight years after The Dark Knight, Rises sees Batman face his (physically) toughest challenge yet: Tom Hardy’s Bane.
Batman may have spent the best part of a decade on the run from the law for crimes he didn’t commit but things aren’t all bad for the selfless vigilante, as Anne Hathaway’s leather-clad Catwoman has rocked up in Gotham.
So what are the highlights from the trailer then? Well, there's Anne Hathaway as a slinkily threatening Selina Kyle, the first listen to Bane's unsettlingly strangulated voice and a stadium-based action sequence that could have been lifted from a Roland Emmerich movie!
That’s enough from us, get watching the new trailer for yourself...
The Dark Knight Rises opens on 20 July 2012 (as if you didn't already have that date on your calendar in permanent marker pen).
