Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Christopher Nolan had been in attendance at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards yesterday to present exclusive footage from The Dark Knight Rises.
The footage is mostly created up of new scenes, and although the word ‘epic’ if thrown about a lot when describing trailers, it’s perfectly valid in this instance.
Trailer removed at the request of Warner Bros.
In connected Dark Knight Rises news AMC Theatres has listed the running time for the film at two hours 45 minutes. This is even longer than The Dark Knight‘s operating time (two hours 33 mins), so fans will possibly have a numb rear to go with their blown thoughts on July 20th.
Eight years following The Dark Knight, the terrorist leader Bane arrives in Gotham City, pushing it and its police force to the limits, and forcing Batman to resurface immediately after taking the fall for Harvey Dent. Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman and Morgan Freeman will reprise their roles alongside Anne Hathaway (Catwoman), Tom Hardy (Bane), Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
