We Get Chills Watching This Final Trailer For 'The Dark Knight Rises'

In order to avoid any spoilers, we’ve been trying to stay far away from any new “Batman” trailers and TV spots. Last week, Warner Brothers posted 49 pages of production notes for the film on thedarkknightrises.com and, over the weekend, a 13-minute behind-the-scenes featurette appeared on the Web.

Now, Comcast’s Xfinity TV has posted a fifth trailer for “The Dark Knight Rises.”

We’re with you when we say we’re tired of trailers—we feel we’ve seen most of the film—however, this extended trailer left us feeling genuinely pumped for the epic conclusion to Christopher Nolan‘s Batman trilogy.


It’s the first trailer to acknowledge—and include imagery—from the first two films, showcasing how Batman’s arrived at this current point.  

Between Michael Caine‘s authoritative opening narration as Alfred Pennyworth, the heartbreakingly eerie music that descends over a chaotic Gotham, and more action shots in silence, this (hopefully) last trailer links together the three films in a way that makes it easy to see how an early screening received a standing ovation.

If you don’t want to see any more spoilers before the film’s release July 20th, turn a blind eye to this trailer.

However, if you’re looking for one more snippet to hold you over until next week, check it out. 

XFinity doesn’t have an embed code, so you’ll have to WATCH IT HERE for now.

Here’s a version of the trailer for those without the Silverlight update below:
