A “teaser trailer” for The Dark Knight Rises is making it’s way around the internet today. While it looks pretty cool, I’m pretty sure it’s fake. /Film has a great break down, explaining why the trailer we’re looking at isn’t legit. The trailer was supposedly played before Green Lantern, but if that was the case, why wouldn’t we see more people talking about it on Facebook or Twitter? There have been rumors that the real teaser trailer for The Dark Knight Rises will be attached to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 next month.
Update: batman11 points out a major mistake the creator of this teaser trailer made, adding more evidence that it’s not official.
If you guys need any further proof that this is fake, one need look no further than the green band MPAA warning. It says “The Following Preview Has Been Approved For All Audiences.” About a year (and change) ago, the MPAA changed their phrasing, and all big green band trailers now say “The Following Preview Has Been Approved For Appropriate Audiences.” For a quick example, just check out last night’s Harry Potter trailer. Or check out the Green Lantern trailers. Or anything else of recent (again, within a year and a bit) release…LOL. Even Inception had “appropriate” as opposed to “all.” For more reference, TDK’s teaser, from 2007, understandably had “all.”
