'Dark Knight Rises' MTV Trailer, TV Spot, Running Time & Much More

The Dark Knight Rises

Tonight the MTV Movie Awards entertained teens across the world, and while The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part I took home Best Movie, thankfully The Hunger Games took plenty of awards too. However, the real star of the night was the introduction of a minute and a half of footage from The Dark Knight Rises introduced by Christopher Nolan, Christian Bale (who got emotional after seeing a couple clips of Heath Ledger as The Joker in The Dark Knight), Gary Oldman and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. It's a breathtaking bit of footage with some great new shots of Batman, Bane and Catwoman. But that's not all!

In addition, Collider noticed that AMC Theatres has listed a running time for The Dark Knight Rises at an epic 2 hours and 45 minutes. And we're thinking that they would know since the theater chain also announced a Dark Knight marathon on July 19th, leading up to the midnight premiere of The Dark Knight Rises. There aren't theaters listed yet, and it's not clear if the theater is showing Batman Begins and The Dark Knight before The Dark Knight Rises or just the latter sequel, but after having a six-movie marathon leading up to The Avengers (read my recap of the experience here), a screening of the whole trilogy doesn't seem crazy. Tickets go on sale June 11th at 12pm EST, so stay tuned to AMC's website for more info.

Here's the MTV footage for Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises, originally via ComingSoon:

Warner Bros has removed all copies of this footage, but it's back out on Comcast now.

And here's another new TV spot for The Dark Knight Rises, with a few snippets of extra footage:

Eight years after The Dark Knight, the terrorist leader Bane arrives in Gotham City, pushing it and its police force to the limits, forcing its former hero Batman to resurface after taking the fall for Harvey Dent.

The Dark Knight Rises is once again directed by Oscar nominated British filmmaker Christopher Nolan, of Following, Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Prestige, The Dark Knight and Inception previously. The script was co-written by Christopher & Jonathan Nolan (The Prestige, The Dark Knight), from a story by Chris Nolan & David S. Goyer (of Batman Begins, The Dark Knight). Warner Bros is bringing The Dark Knight Rises to regular and IMAX theaters everywhere July 20th, 2012 this summer. The Legend Ends…

        Some guy: The Dark Knight Rises? So what do you know about it? me: That you should be as excited for it as I am.
  • "He's behind you." "Who?!" "Me." Incredible doesn't cut it.
    • Whrrr rhhh thrrry?
       Yeah..but should't it be something like: "He's behind you." "Who?!" "*unintelligible speech*" All joking aside it looks like it's going to be an experience.
      • Guest
        "He's behind you." "Who?" "Meesa called Jar Jar Binks!"  
  • ha ha.
  • Darkkite
    I am not seeing this new footage,cuz i feel i have seen 45% of The Amazing spider man already,so i wont spoil this one.
    • Akwasi Asabere
      If the movie really is 2hr and 45min then son you've only seen the tip of the iceberg. 
  • Ron
    Don't be shy...
  • Para
    sorry but bane in indecipherable. 
    • Feeling Supersonic
      Judging from your post, could it be that you just haven't mastered the English language yet?
    •  I would understand this complaint when the bane intro was leaked,but now after they completely cleared it up I do not know what you are talking about.
      • Scopedog
        Agreed.  I understood Bane just fine. I mean, Nolan has had weeks to fine-tune and clear up the voice, and it's clear that he's done so.
  • john
    2 hrs. and 45 min... wow... that is epic. I guess I won't be buying a drink, since there's no way I'm taking a bathroom break and missing a scene.
    • NotAllThoseWhoWanderAreLost
      I can see many fanboys wearing adult diapers during this movie :)
      • Scopedog
        Hell, that's a good suggestion!  I'm off to buy some Depends!
        • max
          Or have bottles of pee around your feet like in Dumb and Dumber.
    • Danimal
      lol not gonna drink anything that whole day
  • K1ng
    I don't care what people say, Bane's voice is legit and gives me chills
    • Reznik
      I don't see what all the fuss is about, if you listen you can understand the guy. Frankly, Batman's voice in the last film was much harder to understand.
      • fordalolz
         Just imagine the dialogue between Batman and Bane: Bane : "Mhhm hrmhh mnh mr." Batman:"Hrmmha MHERRR HMA!" Bane: ? Batman:"HRMMHA MHERRR HMA!" Bane:??!!?
  • Batbutts
    hes behind you.. who?.... MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE ... lol.
  • thebatman
    damn me and me watching more footage
  • thebatman
    holy shit monkey balls 
  • LosZombies
    I only saw the teaser trailer when it came out a few months ago, and Im trying SSSOOOO hard not to look at ANY footage/trailers for this movie. I wanna go in completely unaware of what will happen around every corner of the film. Did it for TDK, and believe me it REALLY payed off lol 😀
    • SuicidalOptimist
      I admire your discipline. I tell myself "ok, no more from here on out!" every time just to cave and give in to my obsession over and over.
      • LosZombies
         Thank you. I know for a FACT Im gonna be dying once we get new Hobbit trailers lol
    • Scopedog
      You've got an iron will--I admit to trying to go cold turkey, but failing!
      • LosZombies
         *Rob Schneider voice* YOU CAN DO IT!!
    • son_et_lumiere
      me too, LosZombies. it led to a completely untarnished viewing experience of The Dark Knight. i went in expecting everything, but waiting for nothing. for the film's you are really excited about in advance, it's the best way to go; *if* you can bear not watching anything beforehand except the very first teaser.
      • LosZombies
        Ya, It made TDK such an amazing experience, and I had no idea what was gonna happen next. I usually just go off of teasers, and posters and just hold off till the release. But like I said, The Hobbit is by FAR gonna be the greatest challenge yet.
        • son_et_lumiere
          ha, i know what you mean. my fingers will be in my ears so much they'll be bleeding! the very best of luck to you.
          • LosZombies
             Likewise comrade!
  • Anyman
    How long was 'The Dark Knight' again?
    • Outlaw
       I believe Begins was 2:20 and TDK was 2:35, so at 10 minutes more, Rises will have the longest running time of the series.
  • Trololol
    "He's behind you." "Who?" "Meesa called Jar Jar Binks!"
  • SuicidalOptimist
    I suffered through this stupid and predictable "award show" just for the TDKR stuff, and it was definitely worth it. When Christian Bale started talking after the little Batman Begins/TDK clip you could tell how emotional he was about Heath Ledger's passing, still. He had to fight tears when he said "It's nice to remember Heath like this", and his voice actually broke when he introduced the TDKR trailer. And here I thought I couldn't love that man more than I already do. #ovarianholocaust As for the trailer, there is only one word to describe my feelings: Sfghkiljhksgfkhf!!!
  • Loser
    I thought Imax theaters only had capacity for 2 hours 40 min on their reels am I misinformed??? Must say that I only read that once.
  • Ticketmaster
    Nolan is both American and British.
    • Yep, but he has spend most of the time of his youth in england, and he have a british accent, i would say he is more british than american.
  • Cuner376
    2hrs 45 mins? Is that the official running time? If it is.....then the movie is going to be epic 😀
  • Bithki
    Well, damn.....that was just freak'in awesome. Might as well go back to bed, anything ellse that happens today is just going to be a disappointment
  • Neverendingandrelentless
    Great soundtrack, epic shit!
  • "This is Awesome! Awesome!"
  • Karole_alix
  • Faceman
    "Let the games begin." I was already pumped for this movie since walking out the movie theater back in '08. Now with that line delivered by a soon to be iconic character with a unique epic voice (Yes his voice will be one of the best things of the movie I'm sure) just got me to jizz my pants!! 
  • Adam's West
    Lame Lame Lame , with nolan's OWS themes super lame catwoman & bane Oh & why is bane wearing a jockstrap on his face ?
    • Bithki
      Dude really???..... I"m embarrassed a just a bit and I would not normally post such a thing but... your kinda a dick! This is just going to be incredible!
      • max
