‘Every journey has its end’ is the big tagline for The Dark Knight Rises, the third and final chapter in Chris Nolan’s Batman trilogy. However, it’s hard to know where you’re going, if you don’t know where you’ve been – and although some fans were put off by the old ground that was covered in the Dark Knight Rises teaser trailer, maybe they just didn’t have the material presented to them in an exciting enough way?

To that end, YouTube user “LittleMissAngel16” (slightly creepy name) has created a Dark Knight Rises trailer that looks back over the events of both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight in the hyper-kinetic, quick-cut style of David Fincher’s Girl With The Dragon Tattoo teaser trailer.

And yes, the remixed version of Led Zepplin’s “Immigrant Song” is style rocking hard and heavy over all the footage of Bruce Wayne, Alfred, Lucius Fox, TWO different versions of Rachel Dawes, and of course, Batman himself battling villains like The Scarecrow, Ra’s al Ghul, and The Joker.

Check out the Batman Begins/Dark Knight/Dragon Tattoo mashup trailer for The Dark Knight Rises, below:

These riffs on that Dragon Tattoo teaser have become something of a popular trend since the trailer was released earlier this year. In fact, simply type the words “dragon tattoo style” into a YouTube search engine, and you’ll instantly be greeted with mashups using footage from movies like Inception, Harry Potter Deathly Hallows: Part 2, and The Debt, to name a few.

For our money though, The Muppets still did it best with their spoof, “The Pig With The Froggy Tattoo.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo will be in theaters on December 21, 2011.

The Dark Knight Rises will be in theaters on July 20, 2012.
