Leading up to the release of the full theatrical trailer for The Dark Knight Rises, Warner Bros. published in Empire magazine a few images excerpted from that trailer. After the trailer released last week, hi-res versions of some of those images finally made their way online — one in incredibly high detail — for those who of us don’t like to actually go outside to a bookstore or magazine stand to gaze longingly upon. I admit, the trailer itself is more exciting, but these are still pretty radass. I especially enjoy Batman and his gun. Where does he get all those wonderful toys, indeed?
Oh, and as for that new trailer, I have to admit that was a bit of a misdirect. A holiday prank, if you will? In the spirit of that master of cinematic misdirection, Christopher Nolan? Anyway, the trailer is a shot-for-shot Sweded remake of The Dark Knight Rises, and it’s pure, unadulterated cynicism-crushing fun. Consider it a belated Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanza/Life Day present from me to you:
Rob Payne also writes the indie comic The Unstoppable Force, tweets on the Twitter @RobOfWar, and his ware can be purchased here (if you’re into that sort of thing). He really just wanted an excuse to share that sweded trailer.
