‘The Dark Knight Rises’ teaser trailer description? [Update: Yes]

Update 07/13/11: Looks like this description was real! The teaser trailer for The Dark Knight Rises has leaked online. I’ll have it up here for you in HD as soon as it becomes available.

Fake descriptions of The Dark Knight Rises’ teaser trailer have been circling online ever since the news that it would be shown in front of the final Harry Potter movie. Now, thanks to Collider, we may have a real description of the soon to be released teaser trailer. Additionally, Twitter user Rob Garwood, has posted photos (here and here) from his local cinema that appear to be legit. Garwood also claims to have watched the teaser, and his description is similar to Collider’s.  I’m going to put the description in spoiler tags for those who want to be surprised, if this does turn out to be the real thing.


Trailer opens with studio logos set on top of the blue flame from Dark Knight.

Start panning up some buildings, but to screen card. EVERY HERO HAS A JOURNEY.

Cuts to a shot from Begins with Bruce walking up to that Village when he’s looking for Ra’s


Ra’s voice over: If you make yourself more than just a man. If you devout yourself to be ideal. And you become something else entirely. A legend Mr. Wayne….A LEGEND!


Cut to Gordon in a hospital bed laying on his side. Looks to be in serious pain. Has A breathing mask on. Is talking to someone.

Gordon: We were in this together, then you were gone…….Now this Evil rises. The Batman…..HAS to come back.(all this is said in a very raspy voice, in much pain)

Bruce/Batman(its not shown who he’s talking to, so don’t know in which form Bruce is visiting him in. My guess would be as Bruce Wayne) : What if he doesn’t exist anymore?

This part is the hardest to understand in the entire trailer, I listened to it at least 10 times but the score is over powering here and Gordon is having trouble talking. It sounds like if says Humor me while trying to laugh. I might be wrong here, full disclosure.

During this quick talk we’re shown a shot of the bat cycle when it drives up the ramp from Dark Knight, Gordon destroying the [Bat] Signal all cut in with the Hospital. As well as super fast flashes of Bane’s face.

Pan up crumbling buildings to reveal the teaser poster, the camera zooms to the white opening and on an all white screen the title appears. The score reaches a fever pitch before turning over to The chanting from the website.


Fades to black and then we see Batman backing away from something, then Bane enters from the left side of the screen. Very quick shot then the trailers done.

Do you think this is the real description? We’ll find out soon! Warner Bros. released the official teaser poster last night, and the teaser trailer should be online very soon!
