Let me just get this out of the way, I really, really enjoyed Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel. It was just the movie I was hoping for. Truth be told, I would have liked to see another twenty minutes of character development at the beginning (which apparently Snyder’s Cut he handed into the studio had), but that’s the game of the studios and making money.
Sure the trailer has been leaked. Some of you have already seen it. Good for you.
After the experience of the leaked Avengers trailer, I made an executive decision to not post leaked trailers because the fact is that is not how you are meant to see the first glimpse of a movie. That is definitely not how you are supposed to see the first theatrical trailer for movie so epic and masterful as The Dark Knight Rises.
See you on opening night!
Movie Marketing as a whole is pretty cookie-cutter. We know what to expect, when to expect it, yadda yadda.
However, every once in awhile something fun happens in the promotion of some of the bigger blockbusters. We have been seeing this with the upcoming Muppets movies and their brilliant campaigns. Now we are seeing it with the Dark Knight Rises and the soon to be released Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol as Slashfilm has confirmed that there will be a 6 minute prologue to The Dark Knight Rises before all IMAX prints of MI:4.
While both movies have no real need for any extra hype, this tie-in is fantastic.
What makes this interesting is that Christopher Nolan‘s third film in the trilogy is being released by Warner Bros‘ and the Brad Bird live-action film is being released by Paramount making this play about the technology itself. Both have shot their films extensively in IMAX so we will definitely be getting something special.
This means that we will be able to get our first official, proper look at The Dark Knight Rises on December 16th as Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol is opening exclusively in IMAX five days before its general release. This concept worked great recently when we had an extended trailer of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo attached to Moneyball.
We shouldn’t be surprised at all with this type of thinking when it comes to the Batman franchise. Nolan laid out a brilliant campaign before the release of The Dark Knight and it seems he is picking up right where he left off.
Not that I needed a reason to see Mission Impossible, now I will make sure I see it in IMAX.

This is it for me.
This is the last bootleg/leaked/stolen/cam trailer I am posting. I am realizing that I am actually doing a disservice to you by showing you them in their darkened form that wasn’t meant for consumption.
What got me here is the latest Amazing Spiderman trailer that has just made its way online. It is like the Dark Knight Rises trailer that broke last week where you couldn’t tell a thing. It’s almost the same thing here however you can tell a lot more.
With that said, I like what they have done with the reboot. I like the choices they made with the cast, the costume and the look and feel of the film. This cam-shot trailer makes me very eager to see the full HD one that is going to be dropped during the upcoming Comic-Con shortly.

This highly anticipated film has had fanboys and the general public alike salivating to see how the trilogy will complete itself. It has already been reported that this will be Christopher Nolan‘s last Batman film as director and Christian Bale‘s as the Caped Crusader and for their swan song it would look like they are going out with a bang.
While the teaser posters for the first two films were pretty simple in that they just showed the logo, this poster seems to hint at (quite overtly) that there are a lot of things that are going to go boom and that makes this fanboy giddy.
You already had me at Batman. I was already guaranteed to be there opening night, now with this poster, my anticipation level just doubled.
What say you?
