Get Back In The Bat-Game With A New The Dark Knight Rises TV Spot And Early Ticket Sales (Before It's Too Late)

By Rob Payne | Trade News | June 18, 2012 | Comments ()


A quick perusal at theaters near me confirms this is only mostly true for The IMAX Experience version of the film, but it's worth pointing out because the latest commercial for Rises is announcing advanced ticket sales rather loudly...


I definitely like how this one opens, playing with the idea that Batman was indeed successful in eliminating much of Gotham's criminal element due to his activities in The Dark Knight, which implies that Bane's promised reckoning is perhaps merely filling a necessary vacuum. That also indicates there's going to be a real arc in this trilogy, apparently bending back to Batman Begins. My only real concern about Christopher Nolan's Bat-films was that they might not feel like a natural trilogy -- like Lord of the Rings, both Star Wars, and Back to the Future, albeit more respectable -- but it looks like that was a silly thing to worry about. Also, also, The Bat looks pretty cool.

One thing this promo was definitely lacking was more Catwoman. Thankfully, if you've got a fever that only Anne Hathaway in a skintight catsuit can cure, there's a new character poster to remedy that:

Rob Payne also writes the comic The Unstoppable Force, tweets on the Twitter @RobOfWar, and his wares can be purchased here and here (if you're into that sort of thing). Of course, he already has his ticket; why do you always ask questions for which you already know the answer?
