With so many people rediscovering our teaser dissection for The Dark Knight Rises, I thought it only fair to provide a dissection of the full trailer, and give people something slightly more worth their time. It is Christmas after all. And as the only comment on the previous dissection was “This isn’t much of a dissection”, I am going to take this way too far and show every single shot from the trailer regardless of interest or sanity.
If you haven’t seen the trailer yet it is embedded below:
Now onto the dissection…
All seems well at the start of a “Football”
Until hulking Bane (Tom Hardy) ascends a shaft
Elsewhere, Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) approaches a table
Then has a natter with Alfred (Michael Caine)
At a swanky event the eyeliner guy from Lost greets Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman)
While two men have a good old gossip
Wayne stops being creepy on the roof and enters the party
And has a pleasant dance with Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway)
Bane continues his slow journey…
…and Kyle accessorises
Gordon neatly avoids an explosion using a wall
Some hoodlums with terrible manners throw furniture around
Amid the chaos a man is helped from beneath a sideboard
Wayne does not like what he is hearing
Bane releases various extras into the franchise
Bane arrives at the Football game, just to watch surely?
Wayne arrives in an Escher sketch and a man imitates Palpatine in Revenge of the Sith (amiright?)
Bane’s team are losing so he makes the entire pitch implode
Bane and Wayne have a (bleak) natter
Wayne is as pleased to see Miranda Tate (Marion Cotillard) as we are
Someone (Wayne) jumps down in blurry fashion
Kyle in a hat!
Batman at last!
The Batmobile explodes!
Men (possibly women) descend a tower while Bane strikes a pose
John Blake (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) enters a door without any context
Bane and Batman square up
The police scavenger hunt continues
Some kind of Bat-tank?
So the tower leads to the Escher sketch?
Batwing following the Batmobile, who is driving what?
And we end with that familiar symbol.
I am exhausted, I hope you are too.
