The movie is here! Read my review here: http://cinephilediaries.wordpress.com/2012/07/23/dark-knight-rises-review/
A fourteen minute preview of Hans Zimmers score is now available.
An official plot synopsis was released by Warner Bros. for the film.
“Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ “The Dark Knight Rises” is the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy.
It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act.
But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.
Leading an all-star international cast, Oscar(R) winner Christian Bale (“The Fighter”) again plays the dual role of Bruce Wayne/Batman. The film also stars Anne Hathaway, as Selina Kyle; Tom Hardy, as Bane; Oscar(R) winner Marion Cotillard (“La Vie en Rose”), as Miranda Tate; and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, as John Blake. Returning to the main cast, Oscar(R) winner Michael Caine (“The Cider House Rules”) plays Alfred; Gary Oldman is Commissioner Gordon; and Oscar(R) winner Morgan Freeman (“Million Dollar Baby”) reprises the role of Lucius Fox. The screenplay is written by Christopher Nolan and Jonathan Nolan, story by Christopher Nolan & David S. Goyer. The film is produced by Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Charles Roven, who previously teamed on “Batman Begins” and the record-breaking blockbuster “The Dark Knight.” The executive producers are Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Kevin De La Noy and Thomas Tull, with Jordan Goldberg serving as co-producer. The film is based upon characters appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. Batman was created by Bob Kane.”

~UPDATE 5/25~ I’ve added 10 new pictures, and all of them are now in slideshow format. My new favorite is definitely the Catwoman poster, reminiscent of the Joker graffit campaign Warner Bros. ran leading up the The Dark Knight. There’s a brand new poster, that looks like they just upped the amp on the teaser poster for DKR. But there are soe great character posters, and two new banners!
These are the four new banners released from Warner Bros. this week. , as well as some new TV spots that show the lighter side of this otherwise dark series. Look closely, they have some interesting details.
With the success of the Avengers still burning bright for Disney, WB has certainly upped their PR campaign for DKR. Anyone else as excited for this movie as I am?
I think the wife bit with Catwoman and the Lamboughini and the return of Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox are my favorites.
