This weekend, the Warner Bros. film Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows opened in theaters here in the US and much to our surprise (mine, especially) a new trailer for Batman: The Dark Knight Rises is being shown in front of that film. Everyone knows that a 6 minute prologue to The Dark Knight Rises is being shown in front of IMAX showings of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol but this new Batman trailer showing with Sherlock Holmes was previously unannounced … hence, the surprise. I was able to see the trailer on the big screen this weekend and, thankfully, the trailer has leaked its way to the Internets for YOUR viewing pleasure. Click below to check out the leaked version of the newest Batman trailer.
As you can see, this version of the trailer is kinda dark … but you can still see everything pretty well, I think. UPDATE: I replaced the embed with a higher quality embed. Bane is heavily featured in this new trailer but so, too, is Catwoman/Selina Kyle (played by Anne Hathaway). This is the first video footage of the new Catwoman/Selina Kyle in action. Sadly, I remain unconvinced that Anne is the right person to play Catwoman in this film but … I’ll continue to reserve judgement until I see more. What do y’all think? It’s a cool trailer, yes? What do YOU think of Anne as Catwoman in this trailer? Are you a fan?
