The much awaited trailer for ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ has hit the theaters. The trailer was first revealed over this past weekend during the showing of the final Harry Potter film, ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2’, but you don’t need to go to the theaters to see it, because we have it here just for you!

‘The Dark Knight Rises’ is the last installment of the ‘Dark Knight’ series from Christopher Nolan –following ‘Batman Begins’ and ‘The Dark Knight’. This time around the main nemesis is Bane (played by Tom Hardy whom you may recognize from the movie ‘Inception’). Bane is considered one of the Batman’s most formidable antagonists with his expert fighting skills, superior strength and even superior IQ.  Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) will also appear in the movie.

What makes Christopher Nolan’s movie versions of ‘Batman’ so enjoyable to watch is that he takes more of a real life approach than his predecessors in terms of looks and storyline.  One treat the movie will bring (for all you ‘Batman’ comic aficionados) is that there will be a lot of references to the ‘Knightfall’ saga. So if you want to get in on some of the movie inferences, you might want to read up on those issues. But don’t worry. You have plenty of time for reading as the movie is set to be released July, 2012. In the meantime, here’s the teaser to get you started!
