Daily Trailer: Stop Showing Us The Dark Knight Rises, Just Give It To Us. Now.
Look, Warner Bros. You don’t need to sell us on this film anymore. It looks amazing. Amazing. Just go dark, don’t show us anything until release. We know you want to beat The Avengers, but that’s nigh on impossible, no matter how much you put into the marketing. Besides, quality is the only metric that really matters in the heart of hearts, right?
All that said, this is perhaps the best trailer yet. Highlighting the film’s massive scope and the scale of the action. The sparse use of dialog is also very effective, giving Bane’s “Mr. Wayne” the force of a tidal wave. Hans Zimmer‘s music is also sounding fantastic. Oh, and that shot of Batman getting illuminated by the gunfire in the tunnel is stunning beyond words.
Perhaps most impressively, doubly so with all the trailers and TV spots, it’s still hard to get a handle on exactly how things come together to form the plot of the film.
A month out from release and it’s Christopher Nolan‘s battle to lose. As it stands he’s very much on the ball. Let’s hope that doesn’t change.
P.S. Personally, I think this blows the Life of Pi teaser out of the water, pun intended. Sorry, dear Editor.
