With TDKR mania taking hold of everyone in sight, more and more teasers, virals and footage are bound to be released, upping the anticipation for the year’s most talked-about movie.
With nine days remaining till the premiere of the epic conclusion to Christopher Nolan‘s fantastic Batman trilogy, the first official footage of The Dark Knight Rises has been released.
Stopping by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to promote the superhero motion picture, veteran actor and celebrated thespian Gary Oldman premiered the previously unseen footage to the delight of an appreciative audience.
The video reveals a dramatic conversation between Gotham’s favourite officer, Commissioner Gordon (played by Oldman), and Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s John Blake as the two lawmen rehash the events that led up to Harvey Dent’s death in The Dark Knight, discussing the subsequent disappearance of the Bat Man.
The 35 seconds of very, very cool footage, like the previously released previews, tidbits and trailers, sum up the excitement surrounding the film. Considering the movie received a standing ovation after a recent preview screening, leaving several critics and journalists raving about its quality, it’s safe to say that we should all be believing the hype.
