DARK KNIGHT RISES TRAILER: STUNNING OR UNDERWHELMING?
At this point it almost seems impossible that people could be disappointed with a Christopher Nolan Batman movie, but in the aftermath of the premiere of the Dark Knight Rises trailer, there is a sector of moviegoers out there who have yet to be impressed with anything they've seen from The Dark Knight Rises.
For the sake of comparison, check out the second Dark Knight Rises trailer and compare it to the second trailer that was released for the The Dark Knight back in late 2007:
A quick scan of our comment sections tell us that some people think this new trailer was still too much of a teaser and not enough of a tantalizer - while others still are complaining that they saw enough to know that Nolan's luck directing this franchise has run out. Of course, above all the cacophony of complaints and criticisms, the cries of 'That looks so epically awesome friggin cool!' can be heard as loudly as the mysterious chant of the 'Bane chorus.'
Upon inspection, these TDK and TDKR trailers follow an obvious pattern of setting up the thematic arc of the film, while primarily focusing on the primary villain that Batman will be facing. If you notice, The Dark Knight trailer gave away nothing about the Harvey Dent subplot of the film; if one were judging Dark Knight by that trailer, it's pretty much a 'Batman vs. The Joker' show - but we now know how much more complex (for better or worse) the actual movie was.
With TDKR having more characters, a bigger scope, and an obligation to bring everything in the trilogy to a close, expect a few surprises and curve balls, to say the least.
So how do you feel about the Dark Knight Rises trailer - love it? Hate it? Eager to see more?
