“The Dark Knight Rises” final trailer shows off Tom Hardy and Hans Zimmer

We’re in crunch time now. One month from today, theaters around the country are going to be gearing up for midnight releases of one of the most anticipated movies of the year: “The Dark Knight Rises.” Christopher Nolan’s third and final Batman movie promises to be a dramatic cinematic feast and an appropriate send off to the beloved series.

That means that Warner Bros. needs a truly great trailer to keep the fire of fan excitement rising for the flick. That trailer came today, courtesy of Nokia. We’ve seen plenty of great teases for the movie before, but this trailer underlines two of the elements of “The Dark Knight Rises” that we’re most looking forward to: Bane and Hans Zimmer.

Considering we all (by now) know that Bane is the villain to “break the Bat” in the “Batman” comic books, chances are their showdown will be pretty epic in this film. That’s likely why this latest trailer chose to show us more Bane than it did any other character in the movie. But we’re okay with that because it proves that Bane really is audible now and that Tom Hardy‘s portrayal of the big bad back-breaking machine is going to be fantastic. Bruce Wayne might be angry instead of scared, but we’re a little bit of both.

There’s also not much dialogue in this trailer, but that’s likely to showcase just how awesome Hans Zimmer’s score is. Really, is there anything this man can’t do? The music in “The Dark Knight Rises” is a lot more haunting than the scores for the previous two Nolan Batman films, reinforcing our belief that everything won’t end all that happily for Mr. Wayne.

Oh, and at least we now know where the cover image for the “Dark Knight Rises” soundtrack came from.

Directed by Christopher Nolan, “The Dark Knight Rises” stars Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Hardy, Gary Oldman, Michael Caine, Marion Cotillard and Morgan Freeman. It’s coming to theaters and IMAX on July 20.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
