Does Christopher Nolanâ€™s final Bat-flick have more on its mind than just thrilling fanboys and filmgoers with sensational summertime escapism? You might wonder after taking a look at the latest official trailer for The Dark Knight Rises, which made its debut in theaters this past weekend with Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows and hit the Web today.
Attention all passengers, we should be arriving to Middle-earth in a little less than a year (oh, is that all?!). We know that it sucks to have to wait so long before feasting your eyes on The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in theaters, but at least we’ve got the teaser trailer to hold you for about two minutes until then (unless you watch it over and over. And over).
Thought we’d throw this question at you today – It’s tough because one movie comes out this Summer, and the other won’t open until next December. It’s also tough because they somewhat appeal to different fan bases. I think it’s going to be next to impossible to recreate the magic that was created in The Lord of the Rings. You want to talk impossible; following up Heath Ledger’s performance as ‘The Joker’. I’m picking The Hobbit in this one. I can only take so much of Christian Bale’s raspy Batman voice.
