Throughout the weekend, the much hyped trailer of The Dark Knight Rises remained a theatrical exclusive in front of the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, while fans have been exploiting the net to get a glimpse of the 1.30 minute trailer. According to Warner Bros., the official high definition version of the trailer will appear sometime on Monday, July 18.
The report of the official high definition version of the trailer of The Dark Knight Rises has come from multiple outlets, which were contacted by Warner Bros. The Warner Bros. legal team has contacted these outlets to remove a plagiarized version of The Dark Knight Rises trailer that hit the Internet and got circulated online several days ago, TheHDRoom reported.
Since the bootlegged version of The Dark Knight Rises trailer first appeared, lawyers have been trying to remove all mirrored instances.
Many of the clips in the trailer were repeated from the previous Nolan Batman films, however, several brief excerpts of Bane and Batman were revealed. While Anne Hathaway as Catwoman is absent, the only actors speaking were Neeson, Gary Oldman and Christian Bale.
After being started with the words, Every Hero Has A Journey across the screen, the trailer brings scenes of Batman Begins playing over Liam Neeson speaking about becoming a legend. If you make yourself more than just a man, if you devote yourself to an ideal, then you become something else entirely, a legend, Mr. Wayne, a legend, says Neeso.
After that Commissioner Gordon is seen on a hospital bed breathing through an oxygen tank. As per TheHDRoom report, the voiceover by a wounded Commissioner Gordon (Gary Oldman) was the biggest gripe amongst fans, saying that the dialogue was 'too simplistic' to have come from Christopher Nolan.
Whatever it is, the trailer did have people abuzz about the final film of the franchise, which is set to be released in the summer of 2012. The alleged 'bootlegged version' of the trailer has also raised the bar for the upcoming official high definition version.
