Here’s the beginning, my friends!

As all you Batman fans already know, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES teaser trailer will be released very, very soon. And because of that, the trailers need to be shipped to theaters and previewed by projectionists, right?

Well thanks to that wonderful little loophole, one projectionist has written a detailed description about the trailer, which you could read below.  It’s pretty intense, and if you need your fix of Batman right now, scroll down!

We will have the full trailer for you as soon as it’s released!


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

Start panning up some buildings, cut 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 Al Ghul.


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. He’s 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 trailer is done.
