The Dark Knight Rises Trailer.

There have been quite a few epic, and captivating franchises in my lifetime.  Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, The Matrix Trilogy, The Step Up franchise (JUST KIDDING).  But the new Batman series however, is no joke.  The new trailer premiered before The Deathly Hallows Pt. 2, and had tons of people talking.  The new trailer features shots of Commissioner Gordon a bit beat up, and talking to Bruce Wayne, as well as a shot of The Dark Knight himself getting WORKED by Bane (above).  To see the new trailer, go to the ‘Dark Knight Rises’ website by clicking here.
