Dark Knight Rises Rolls Out First TV Spots, 11 New Stills

With the premiere of The Dark Knight Rises now less than two months away, Warner Bros. has begun the promotional sprint for the conclusion of director Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, first with the release earlier this week of a new poster and six character banners and now with the debut of the first two television spots and 11 new production stills.

The first commercial is a general 30-second teaser with a few flashes of new footage, while the second, fittingly titled “Catwoman,” moves Anne Hathaway’s Selina Kyle to center stage. The new images, meanwhile, come courtesy of Batman-News and Empire (and include what I think is the first official photo of Marion Cotillard’s much-discussed Miranda Tate).

Opening July 20, The Dark Knight Rises stars Christian Bale as Batman, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle, Tom Hardy as Bane, Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tale, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake, Michael Caine as Alfred, Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox.

    :D :D :D

    Im savoring the moments till this comes out!

  • Chris Fama

    Looks really horrible to me.

  • Happily LS

    Obvious troll is obvious.

  • Spencer Goldade

    Worst Catwoman ever.  Worse choice than Halle Berry.  Yeah, I said that.

  • WonderScott

    I sooooo don’t agree.

  • Army Boots ‘n’ Goggles

    I feel very positive about every aspect of this film … except choice of Catwoman, Catwoman’s costume … pretty much everything to to with Catwoman (seems I’m not alone though).

  • Scud

    Ok the more of her as Catwoman the more I like it.

  • Darkhawk

    Anne Hathaway is the big question mark.  But if Batman Begins could survive Katie Holmes, I have faith in this one too.

    Still, it’s kind of funny watching such a lightweight go up against such a powerful cast.
    Christian Bale, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy.  Every single on of those is a remarkable actor.  Anne?  Meh.

    because you are stupid

  • Ian

    I truly love Anne Hathaway, but that is easily the lamest Catwoman I’ve ever seen.  Give me Michelle, Eartha, or Julie anyday.

    Why troll? Because he doesn’t like what he sees? Neither do I. So far nothing about The Dark Knight Rises has made me interested in the movie. I didn’t particularly enjoy The Dark Knight and I probably won’t go to the cinema to see this instalment, I’ll just wait till I can get it on DVD. Plus, the amount of actors I dislike and who are featured in TDKR is – as far as I’m concerned – not doing this movie any favours.

    This is my opinion and I have valid reasons to have it. Not everyone is obliged to like this movie.
