    can I be honest? left me cold. the fact that you cant see Hardy behind that mask, or even hear him properly, plus the Transformers-ation of the Bat vehicles, just puts me off.

    As I posted elsewhere, 2012 looks crowded of possibilities of great films. As it was listed in another post by brian:

    Tarantino (Django Unchained)
    Nolan (The Dark Knight Rises)
    Jackson (The Hobbit)
    Bigelow (Kill Bin Laden)
    Hooper (I hate you Tom Hooper) (Les Miserables)
    Spielberg ( LIncoln)
    Luhrmann (The Great Gatsby)
    Scott (Prometheus)

    I add:
    Pixar’s Brave
    Ang Lee’s Life of Pi
    David O. Russel’s The Silver Linings Playbook
    Marc Forster’s World War Z
    Joe Wright’s Anna Karenina
    Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master
    Michael Hoffman’s Gambit (written by the Coens)
    Woody Allen’s Nero Fiddled

    Feels rather intimidating. That shot of rioters breaking into some poor guy’s house when Selina Kyle is talking about “Storm is coming…” is really disturbing.

    2012 will be great. I hope the earth will be there in 2013 so we can watch The Hobbit Part 2. But not everything can be good so there will be some disappointments I guess. But “The Dark Knight Rises” does´t look like one. The entrance of Bane gave me chills and Anne Hathaway looks amazing as Selina Kyle.

    It’s interesting how each of Nolan’s Batman films look completely different. Judging by the trailer, though, this looks like it’s the most ‘epic’ of the three in terms of scale. I’m very intrigued.

    They teased Marion Cotillard. TEASED. Anne looks surprisingly slinky (and conflicted and evil depending on which scene we’re discussing) and sounds great as Selina. Bane is making me as nervous as the Joker did (and, thinking back, so did Cillian’s Scarecrow) in the way they’re seeming quite unpredictable and downright dangerous.

    Anyone else notice Bruce bungeeing or whatever he was doing off of that building, as opposed to Batman doing it? And was he in prison? So many questions. LOVING it.

    So it’s a Batplane and not a Batcopter? Either way it’s awesome!

    It seriously looks epic. I love love LOVE the Anne Hathaway/Selina Kyle voice over, and Bane looks very dangerous indeed. The teased shots of JGL and Cotillard have me very intrigued, and the tone seems to be VERY dark. I’m loving it. Hopefully Nolan can finally earn that Best Director nomination (maybe WIN), but either way I’ll be happy with another amazing film.

    Honestly…i in 5-6-10-20 years , nobody will care if these movies get any type of awards. They become something else entirely (lol)…a part of the popculture. And that is Nolan’s greatest achievement.

    Didn’t put Silence cause I think it’s gonna be released only in 2013.
    There’s also a Malick film scheduled for 2012… but his films are usually delayed… let’s wait.

    Skyfall added as well as the 2 Tim Burton films I just remembered: Dark Shadows and Frankenweenie.

    I will say it here first. 2012 will be Anne Hathaway’s year with The Dark Knight Rises & Les Miserables ( two completely different roles ) . She may get Oscar Gold. She really impressed me in the trailer. I am still in awe with how wonderfully icy, sexy, & bitchy she is in this effective trailer.

    I think it’s interesting how Inception leaned on TDK’s success for it’s marketing but for The Dark Knight Rise’s I’m getting more of an Inception vibe then Batman…I mean from the prologue and this trailer (particularly with JGL and Cottilard) I almost thought I seeing ads for Inception 2, lol.

    And don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying anything bad about Inception or Nolan or his Batman films…in fact Nolan is my favorite modern director, I just find the direction of the marketing interesting is all. And actually I kinda prefer it cause I like Nolan’s non-Batman fare the most. Inception, Memento, Prestige, etc

    For Inception they advertised it as “From the director of The Dark Knight,” but this is just, “From Christopher Nolan.”

    And that looks like Hathaway is wearing the necklace that Wayne’s mother was wearing when she was murdered.

    It’s way too early to be worrying about Oscars with this movie (or any movie coming out next year, really) so let’s just hope it lives up to expectations and is a satisfying conclusion to Nolan’s trilogy. At least that’s what I’m hoping for at the moment.

    It’s actually Bruce with a cane and wearing his prison(?) robes. So many questions…

    If it’s Bruce, then what’s under the lid is possibly part of a person, a head or a hand. I’m not sure what else would cause that kind of mysterious, menacing shot. There is a dread in the way that Bruce coming upon that lid is filmed. (I figured if it was Alfred, it might have only been the broken bat-mask we’ve seen already)

    @tonyr (and roddy) thanks.
    From Tom Hardy’s quotes about Bane, I’m not sure he’s the ‘capturing’ type. More likely slaughtering the rich.
    Also, I’m starting to wonder if some of the scenes are flashes back to when Bruce was studying under Ras/Ducard, only because it would seem weird if Bruce was away ################## (self redacted comic book spoilage) in that scene wearing the weird robe, that he would be hearing those chants and that doesn’t so much look like Gotham.
    That’s, of course, based on the assumption that Bane is trying to follow through on what Ras/Ducard tried to accomplish in Batman Begins

    Oh dear, after watching this trailer a gazillion time, I’m now more excited than ever. I wasn’t sold on Anne Hathaway but I’m definitely convinced now, her “how you ever thought you could live so large and leave so little for the rest of us” and the way she walks in her last scene left me speechless (and I’m giggling at how Nolan is going to incorporate the Occupy Wall Street and 99% to the Batman Story. We saw it coming with an anarchist Joker). The first scene with Caine is also wonderful. I think we’re going to see here the full display of such a brilliant cast. I cannot wait.
