Below refers to the early teaser trailer, for the dissection of the full trailer click here.
The very nature of a teaser trailer is that it doesn’t give you a whole lot to go on, and The Dark Knight takes this to a new level, containing the minimal amount of new footage imaginable. It’s almost as bad as early trailers for The Social Network.
Despite the lack of new footage bootleg versions of the trailer were posted as soon as it was leaked, and Collider even ran a description of the teaser as news. Madness.
Happy to join in with the craziness, we have a look at every single bit of new footage in the trailer below:
Gary Oldman lying in a bed (repeat as necessary)
A man(?) climbing out of a well! Why he doesn’t use that rope to the right is beyond me.
Out of focus shot shown for less than a second! But who is it?
Ah, Tom Hardy as Bane. I still have yet to find out who Bane is. His mask reminds me of Alien.
Bane, Batman and a man with a gun. Yawn.
That really is it. They’ve got a whole year, to this very day, to tease us with a few frames of all the other villains. Maybe if we’re lucky they’ll tease a bit of plot.
