Time to Begin Avoiding 'Dark Knight Rises' TV Spots

As anyone that reads this site already knows, I do my best to avoid watching trailers of any sort and only recently made an exception for the Django Unchained and The Master footage in Cannes (read that here).

That said, last night I was watching some television when suddenly the familiar skyline of Christopher Nolan's Gotham City appeared on the screen. I stood up and excused myself from the room for 30 seconds realizing we were now close enough to July 20 that TV spots for The Dark Knight Rises were going to become a regular thing, which meant I will need to excuse myself often until the film finally hits theaters... but that doesn't mean you need to.

Today I have a third TV spot for The Dark Knight Rises for you and, based on the fact it doesn't begin with a shot of Gotham, I know it's different than the one I saw last night. I would assume, however, the one I saw last night was probably one of the first two TV spots I featured last week... If you missed those click here.

Now here's that new TV spot titled "Rise".

The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters on July 20 and marks the conclusion of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy. The cast includes Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman; Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle (Catwoman); Tom Hardy as Bane; Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate; and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake.

    better than the dark knight

      On a serious note, this looks like it could be the darkest pg-13 movie ever made

    These TV Spots have kinda lowered my expectations. I guess Bane's voice just sounds too cheesy for me.

    • Chris

      opposite for me. I think he sounds bad-ass

    Your willpower is quite exceptional; I can't resist.

    I haven't watched a single trailer.

    I don't go out of the room when I see a TV spot, but I do look away from the screen. Only for movies I actually care about though, most recently Prometheus and Dark Knight Rises.

    As with all films, the closer the movie is to coming around, the more the TV spots will appear. However, as with all else involving TDKR (castings, story, finale elements) one must simply say...TRUST IN NOLAN.

    Nolan has NEVER been one to spoil the movie in any fashion through advertising. If TDKR is like any other of his films in terms of Ads, I'm sure we haven't come close to spoilers yet.

    I find trailers are unavoidable... Especially if you see films a lot. I mean, I'm not going to walk out of a theatre if the trailer comes up... So I have seen all three of the trailers in theatres once or twice.

    But, I've managed to stay clear of rumours and all TV spots thus far, and I'm pretty excited as a result. I have speculations of what might happen, but I really have no idea - and that excites me to no end.

      I have actually walked out during trailers before, but I know what you mean. I am seeing Snow White and the Huntsman tonight and there very well could be the new trailer for The Bourne Legacy in front of it... I won't leave.
