Trailerwatch: New Dark Knight Rises Trailer

Almost as if in response to the release of Avengers Assemble, a new trailer for The Dark Knight Rises has been released.

Whilst the Reel 6 verdict was that Avengers Assemble was a blockbuster masterpiece, it has to be noted that Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight remains the high watermark of recent superhero movies.

Expectations for the conclusion of the trilogy are high, and the first trailer was predictably impressive visually, but it seemed a little cluttered. Was it perhaps going to be a slightly overblown finale which might crumple under its own weight?

The new trailer should allay most fears. It features a clearer sense of most of the characters, especially Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman and Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s John Blake. Add to that, more money shots and the usual, crisp and beautiful Wally Pfister photography.

A friend of mine said on Friday “In Whedon in trust”. Well, in Nolan we believe.
