Official Dark Knight Rises trailer released

Some who expected this here in Lexington this weekend got the teaser from July, which is just plain unfortunate. Thankfully though, the official trailer for Christopher Nolan's conclusion to The Dark Knight saga has been released. Huge thanks to GeekTyrant for the tip on comingsoon's embed code.

The film takes place eight years after the events in The Dark Knight. The trailer features a look at Anne Hathaway's portrayal of Catwoman. We also get to see Tom Hardy's Bane. Oh, and that's a glimpse of Joseph Gordon-Levitt's John Blake as well. Michael Caine reprises his role as Bruce Wayne's loyal butler Alfred Pennyworth. The film also stars wonderful actors Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Marion Cotillard, and Matthew Modine.

After the death of Harvey Dent, in order to preserve Dent's reputation, Batman (Christian Bale) assumed the responsiblities for Dent's crimes. This leaves him an enemy of the state, so to speak, hunted by the Gotham City Police Department. He is called out, however, by the villain Bane who wishes to destroy the city and must deal with Selina Kyle (Hathaway).

The Dark Knight releases on July 20, 2012.

What will be the next step in the Batman franchise?
