CHICAGOLast Friday, we promised the official “The Dark Knight Rises” teaser trailer would be released online today. And moments ago, it just was in HD quality! Watch it now below!

The official teaser trailer for “The Dark Knight Rises” first appeared on Monday afternoon at the film’s official Facebook page and its official Web site at TheDarkKnightRises.com. On July 13, 2011, this same trailer appeared online in bootlegged quality. The video was a bootlegged recording of what appeared before “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” which opened last Friday.

The trailer above features Gary Oldman’s character. He’s mumbling and lying in a hospital bed. The villain, Bane (Tom Hardy), also appears in the teaser. We also see the epic city imagery of the bat signal that first surfaced on July 11, 2011 in the film’s official teaser poster.

We’re disappointed with this teaser trailer. It feels somber and sleepy. It doesn’t smack you in the face and build excitement as much as previous Batman trailers have. We demand more.

“The Dark Knight Rises” will again star Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne, Gary Oldman as Jim Gordon, Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox and Michael Caine as Alfred. The film also stars Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Juno Temple, Josh Pence, Diego Klattenhoff and Alon Aboutboul. Nestor Carbonell and Daniel Sunjata are currently rumored to be involved.

The film, which is again directed by Christopher Nolan, is scheduled for release on July 20, 2012. “The Dark Knight Rises” is written by David S. Goyer (story), Bob Kane (characters), Christopher Nolan (screenplay), Christopher Nolan (story) and Jonathan Nolan (screenplay) with original music from Hans Zimmer and cinematography by Wally Pfister.

  • Cher Show, The

    CHICAGO – Cherilyn Sarkisian… yes, that is her birth name… is the redoubtable Cher, and it’s perfect timing for her to have a jukebox musical tribute. “The Cher Show,” covering three eras/songs of the six-decade career of Cher, opens for a Chicago preview before its Broadway run, from June 12th through July 25th, 2018.

  • ThroatPunch

    CHICAGO – The provocative title of Sharon Krome’s new stage play, “ThroatPunch,” does not contain that particular fight technique. But it does have standout performances by the three person cast, as they make their way in Chicago, circa 1983, amid their emerging twentysomething punk rock attitude. The World Premiere of the show has a Thursday-Sunday run at the Chicago Mosaic School through June 3rd, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
