Happy Tuesday, everyone – have a trailer for the forthcoming Christopher Nolan opus, “The Dark Knight Rises” in your ocular cavities!
If “The Avengers” is akin to a particularly delicious veggie bean burger in a sour dough roll with hot sauce, lettuce and mustard (go with me here), then “The Dark Knight Rises“ looks like a particularly ornate three course meal with a decent cup of coffee following it.
Also, in related news, I’m now quite hungry. Curses!
I’m amazed at how Christopher Nolan has managed to keep up the quality of his reinvention of the cinematic “Batman“ for two excellent movies and it seems as though his aesthetic and storytelling choices show no sign of running out of steam if this trailer is to be taken as any evidence.
No spoilers seem to be revealed herein – just tantalising hints about Bane, Bruce and the nature of the character played by Marion Cotillard and action sequences which look to one-up the large-scale mayhem liberally peppered throughout “The Dark Knight”. This is the same Christopher Nolan, mind you, who according to the internet can’t direct action sequences.
And now a pause for a chuckle at the bonkers gall of that notion. Oh, internet nerd defence forces, don’t ever change…
“The Dark Knight Rises” will, assuming everything goes to plan, be obliterating box office records at a cinema near you from July 20th…
