Even though Michel Gondry's comedy Be Kind Rewind didn't make a big impression at the box office, it's left a legacy for filmmakers to make cheap, "sweded" versions of their favorite films for everyone on the internet to see. Here we've more recently seen recreations of The Avengers trailer, and now that same crew, going by the name Dumb Drum, has sent us a sweded version of the most recent trailer for The Dark Knight Rises. It's pretty funny, and even cunning the way some of the more special effects heavy sequences are pulled off with cardboard cutouts and paper materials, but most of all, it's just fun. Watch!
Here's Dumb Drum's sweded version of The Dark Knight Rises trailer:
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 next summer. The Legend Ends…

I liked the Avengers one, but this one really left me with a stale feeling. I understand the concept, but I feel like they went TOO lazy here.

It's kinda brilliant. And I totally loved "Be Kind, Rewind".
