Rises seemed to be under the microscope during its surprisingly open production, but it’s been relatively quite during post production– and we think that’s just perfect. We’re tired of movies that break fans with their endless marketing cycle, and we appreciate that we’re about three months away from release and we don’t have eight thousand different trailers and TV spots giving us every beat of the movie (if only the same could be said of the equally-anticipated Prometheus, whose latest trailers reek of spoilers).
Granted, that may change, but for now we think Warner Bros. are doing a commendable job of keeping TDKR on our collective radar (as if it could ever fall off of it), without spoiling everything, and this new trailer only reinforces that belief.
There’s plenty of new material here, particularly an emphasis on Joseph Gordon-Levitt, though we hardly get any clarification of who he will be playing, and yet the movie still feels largely inaccessible; as though are still plenty of surprises in store come July 20th. But what say you fans? Does the third trailer for The Dark Knight Rises prolong the tease of the conclusion to Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy? Or do you fear it gives away too much, too early?
