Trailers Without Pity: <i>The Dark Knight Rises</i>

The 2012 summer movie season has had its fair share of hits so far (The Avengers, Ted, The Amazing Spider-Man) but one film has loomed large over the multiplex landscape ever since the spring breeze gave way to summer heat: The Dark Knight Rises. The premiere of the third and final chapter in Christopher Nolan's genre redefining Batman series is now just two weeks away and Hollywood is clearing the way for his arrival: between now and the film's July 20th release date, the only major movie opening in wide release is the fourth Ice Age adventure. Yup, even the other studios are dying to see what Nolan has come up with.

The plot of The Dark Knight Rises is being kept tightly under wraps -- although now that the movie has screened for some members of the press, expect more details to leak out -- but we do know that the film takes place eight years after the events of the last movie and finds new villain Bane (Tom Hardy) menacing both Gotham City and its protector (Christian Bale). Also, Anne Hathaway slinks around Wayne Manor as Selina Kyle A.K.A. Catwoman and Joseph Gordon-Levitt turns up as a straight-arrow cop who remains one of the few believers in the Bat. We're sure that we speak for everyone when we say that July 20th can't come soon enough. In the meantime, check out our Trailers With Pity team's take on the trailer and start the speculation about whether Batman survives this particular encounter or goes out in a blaze of glory.
