DARK KNIGHT RISES trailer #2 description

There are plenty of you that will flock to the theaters this weekend. Some to see SHERLOCK HOLMES, some to see DRAGON TATTOO, some to see MISSION IMPOSSIBLE and then there are those of you who are like me.  Getting to see those films are a mere bonus treat to being able to see THE DARK KNIGHT RISES prologue and trailer #2.  My hats off to those who are willing to shell out the 12 bucks to see an IMAX movie just for a trailer.  You, my good folk, are a truly dedicated bunch.  But right now, right here, I have for you the scene-by-scene detail filled description of that second trailer.  It was kindly provided by Bat-Man News.  If you would rather be surprised then simply do not READ! But if you want a slight heads up, have a gander and tell us all what you think.


-starts out young kid singing national anthem at the gotham football stadium
-you see bane in jacket climbing up onto a ledge
-cuts to inside a fancy house with a covered dinner plate (the more a saw this part the weirder it seemed because the camera hangs onto this shot for a few seconds) and alfred begins his voice over
-Alfred- “You’re as precious to me as you were to you’re own mother and father”
-cut to alfred speaking- “I swore to them that I would protect you…”

-shot of gordon kicking in a door with a gun and flashlight drawn and immediately after there is an explosion behind him

-shot of men pulling someone out from underneath a desk who is trying to fight back with no luck
-back to Selina still talking whispering now into bruce’s ear
-shot of bruce standing back with a dumbfounded look on his face
-cut to a shot of prisoners armed with AK-47s emerging from a blown out hole from what looks like a prision steel wall (there are a lot of them) and as the camera pans from right to left you see banes legs showing he is by himself waiting for the immates to come to him.
-Chanting begins and at first you think its coming from the immates but the scene shifts to a football kicker the stadium ready for kickoff chanting still being heard.
-Shot of bane walking up towards the feild from what looks the tunnel the players come out from as he is still hidden in darkness, chanting still happening
– shot of bruce in a prison type cell but he opens the gate and looks like an underground jail which is where the actually chanting is coming from the other people of prisoners there
– Bruce turns to an older guy (no idea who it is but looks to be imprisoned there too) and asks- “what does that mean/”
– Old guy – “Rise”
-cut to bane back in the tunnle at the stadium flipping a switch to a device in his hand
– than the scene where the football player is running towards the endzone camera is in front of him so we see that the feild is being leveled behind him swallowing up other players but he has no clue until he scores, turns around, and see’s the field is gone, not the stadium though, just the field from one endzone to the other.
– Bane speaking with a shot of bruce laying down with a cut or lump on his head either way he looks in bad shape, but bane says “When Gotham is in ashes..”

It would seem that career goal of leading the New York Knicks to an NBA championship didn’t quite pan out. He started writing film reviews just over a year ago and became a movie buff even further back than that. He’s dabbled in fiction, poetry and random articles filled with nothingness on his way to hopefully one day becoming a published author.
