‘The Dark Knight Rises’ MTV Trailer Featuring New Footage
This is getting a little frustrating. On the one hand, we seem to be getting an overshare of footage for The Dark Knight Rises, Christopher Nolan‘s epic conclusion to his Batman trilogy. On the other hand, without knowing anything about the plot of the film, it’s all pretty useless. Sure Nolan is a master marketer, however I think I’m reaching the point where I am kind of done with new footage. Opening weekend for TDKR is July 20th and that is a lot closer than we think.
I call it a mix of ‘The Avengers Effect” and a pre-emptive strike against the blitz that we are about to receive for The Amazing Spiderman. Sure it all makes sense however, as stated, it is starting to get a little frustrating.
Case in point is the new footage Nolan released during the MTV Movie Awards. It is pretty much a trailer with a bunch of new stuff around Jason Gordon-Levitt’s character as well as some new stuff with Anne Hathaway‘s Selina Kyle. It does get us going, however we still have a bit of time and there is now a serious danger of peaking too soon.
Oh well, you know you’re still going to watch because I sure as hell did.
