Here is the DARK KNIGHT RISES crystal-clear trailer from the upcoming third and final installment of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy that you've been waiting for! Appropriately released just 30 days before"THE DARK KNIGHT RISES" premieres in theaters on July 20, this is the best looking--and clear-sounding trailer thus far--and there have been a slew of them.
To give the most obvious example, the Bane character's (Tom Hardy) face gear made it near-impossible to understand what he was saying when the villain spoke a key-to-the-trailer sentence. The answer to the question, "Who are you?,' uttered by who appears to be Commissioner Gordon (Gary Oldman) before Bane crushes his throat has, in previous cuts, been answered with 'I am....something something something.' Then 'cleaned up' it was 'I am Gotham's....something something,' which still didn't give us much for Bane's character's motivation.
Here now for the first time is a trailer in which Bane clearly enunciates his answer to the question: 'I am Gotham's reckoning.' Good job, sound people-- there are always a few audience members for whom the dialogue is important. Of course, now we must know 'why' Bane is picking on Gotham...to which we will happily flock to the theatres this July to find out.
Kidding aside, this looks like a glorious movie. Christian Bale for me, has been the very definition who the Batman of film would be. Every other Batman pales before him. Same goes for every other Commissioner Gordon prior to Gary Oldman's audience POV/heart-of-the-Dark-Knight-films' character. Finally, thank the gods that they made this film while they still could recruit the only Alfred I can now envison, brought to life by the imitable Sir Michael Caine.
