Watch: Two 'The Dark Knight Rises' TV Spots with Some New Footage

May 23, 2012

The Dark Knight Rises

"I need you to get me back in the game." With just under two months to go until The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters in July, it's time for the onslaught of TV marketing for the anticipated conclusion to The Dark Knight legend to being. That final trailer packed quite a punch, and those new posters are relatively cool, but now we have the first two TV spots for Christopher Nolan's exciting trilogy end with almost entirely new footage. Of course, since they're TV spots, they're only 30-seconds long, but that's enough to get fans excited. There's great new stuff with Bane, Catwoman, Alfred, Lucius and, of course, Batman. Watch below!

Here's the first TV spot for Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises via Batman-News:

And here's the second TV spot for The Dark Knight Rises with a Catwoman focus:

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…

    Like. Didn't love TDK but I enjoyed it on numerous occasions...same will hopefully be said about this one.
    • RobinBankes
      I get/appreciate the honesty and your opinion, but your killing the mood here man lol this is HUGE brand new footage and I'm friggin glowing at this point, and, for all those who saw the stadium behind the scenes: "GOTHAM...this is your liberation..."
      • Buzzfunk
        What you mean killing the mood?  Not everyone likes everything equal. Personally, I did not care for TDK. It was too inconsistent and by far not Nolan's best work. To me that was The Prestige. Love that movie. The DKR trailers just don't get me excited. I can appreciate Nolan's grounded style but...I dunno. Bane, yeah he seems mean and lean. I wont lie. I will still watch it but going to wait til the onslaught has settled down a bit.....
  • Jenna
    WOW.  The onslaught indeed... last trailer was amazing and this is fantastic too.
  • Lucdude2012
    Definitely shots of Bruce Wayne before Bane owns him.
    I refuse to watch any more of these. This has to be the studio behind them giving away so much of the F&*cking movie. 
    • Razor
      Weird, I still feel I only know about 5% of the film...
    •  Yeah what did they give away? That Bane and Catwoman are in it?
    • SuicidalOptimist
      Huh?! Most of the footage could already be seen in the previous trailers; the only new footage were some shots of Bruce before shit hits the fan. Wasn't it to be expected that he'd have a few lines before he has to put on the bat suit and go to town? Had I not read the comics this movie was (roughly) based on, I'd still have zero clue wtf is gonna happen. And, even after reading that story arc I can only guess what Nolan's gonna do with it.
    • That's a very common mistake about Nolan movies, we always think we have seen everything in the trailer and then when we see the movie we haven't, not by a mille...
  • dim2thesum
    she stole his lambo!! LOL 
  • Ehsan Davodi
    TDK was messy and low action but it's joker was fun to me, let's hope this one was more epic more spectacular more atmospheric and Tom hardy make "legend's end" to "masterpiece's end" I hate this waiting
    • nate
      messy and low action lol
    •  Yeah that part where the Joker assassinated all the people and blew up a hospital was a fucking yawn fest.
      • SuicidalOptimist
        Not to mention the chase scene through the city with the flipping truck and stuff. So uninspired!
  • StilesStilinski
    That's more like it.
  • Faceman721
    This new footage got me pumped, not kidding guys, this will be the best movie of 2012. The Avengers was pretty cool but it's story an driven plot looks weak compared to this movie's plot. The Avengers was fur fun and it really was so much fun, but this will be epic. 
    • RobinBankes
      Amen brother, The Avengers was a great Marvel movie, in my opinion the best thus far, and I've been to it twice with intentions to see it again because it's that good. And to be even more honest, I won't be surprised if The Avengers has the highest opening weekend box office gross for a long time. However, "The Dark Knight Rises" will undeniably be the best comic book movie of the decade and has the potential to rival movies such as "The Departed", "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King", and "Avatar".
  • SuicidalOptimist
    Goddammit, why am I so weak?! I told myself to not watch anymore clips or trailers for this movie before it releases. Well, at least in this case it didn't spoil any additional plot points. The suspense is killing me! Also, Christian Bale with grey temples...unnnngghh! Totally worth it. #breathingintopaperbag
  • Is it just me, or is this looking more cheesy by the second... whats with all the weak one-liners? I started feeling this, as soon as Bale (In the last trailer) said: 'This is not a car!' in his lame bat-voice... I loved the last 2 movies, but this one just isnt doing it for me...
    • RobinBankes
      I agree that there are some lame lines, and I especially agree with the "This isn't a car" line, that bugs the hell out of me. But if you think of the TDK trailer when Alfred ends with "...much more subtle." after dismissing the Lamborghini as a smart alternative was also very campy, while the rest of the trailer was very dark, menacing and informative. Because the TDK and TDKR trailers were just as structurally similar I think we can go into TDKR expecting the same, if not better, kind of movie
  • Nielsen700
  • thechillerdewd
    the most overhyped movie of the year...
    • Clint Beastwood
      You mean the Avengers, right?  The remedial movie that brings lulz because of Robert Downey Jr and a CGI Hulk?  Where as the rest of the movie was utterly remedial and stupid, an actual yawn fest?  Spends 5 movies weaving characters together and has the most boring opening act for a mega action blockbuster I've ever seen?  Or are we going to act like some scenes weren't ripped out of a 90's Power Ranger episode, yet it's being heralded since the best thing since sliced bread?  TDK Rises will stomp the competition.  At least from a critical or quality perspective.  Avengers has the dumb, kiddy factor.
      • thechillerdewd
        did I mention the Avengers? I am way more excited for Prometheus. The footage I've seen of TDKR just doesn't get me excited, sorry if I have a different opinion. TDK was a good movie, it had its fair share of lenghts and weak points and the movie was only that successful because of the Joker and the tragic death of Mr. Ledger. The Bat itself was less interesting than in Batman begins (which I still prefer to TDK, but that's a different story). As for TDKR I wish it lives up to its tremendous hype (which has been going on since 2008) but I simply don't see it happening. (Imo most of the nolan movies tend to be a little overhyped -> e.g. Inception after multiple viewings, it just gets favs are Memento and The Prestige)
    • Xerxexx
       Matter of perspective.
  • SuicidalOptimist
    Considering the huge success of the previous 2 movies in this installment, I don't think anybody should be surprised to see the conclusion of this trilogy go through the roof in terms of hype, expectations and excitement. If the hype for TDKR is justified or not remains to be seen.
  • I'm glad they showed some of the charm from TDKR. Those previous trailers were ominous. Lucius is always good for a wisecrack. Looking forward to this chapter in the best crime thriller saga since the Godfather series. 
  • jake love
    Guaranteed that Levitt is either the next Batman or Night Wing.  
    • Jericho
      before he took on Robin and after Gordon was trapped behind a desk, Batman would use numerous beat cops to assist him in the background 'just in case' and i have a feeling he may come in handy rather quickly.....
  • guest
    Finally, an intelligent film. Why couldn't these guys have written Prometheus' script? Sigh.
