‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Trailer Released

Legendary Pictures has released a two-minute trailer for The Dark Knight Rises, the conclusion of Christopher Nolan‘s Batman film trilogy.

Follow this link to watch the trailer–what do you think? Nolan collaborated on the screenplay with his brother, screenwriter Jonathan Nolan. The movie will hit theaters in July 2012. The trailer highlights the infamous Batman villain Bane as he wrecks Gotham City.

Here’s more from Movies.com: “[The trailer revealed] some enticing dialogue from Anne Hathaway, playing Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman). Naturally her chat with Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale), as they dance close together at a masquerade ball, falls somewhere between seductive and threatening, but that’s what we expect from her character. Will she be a villain? A romantic sidekick? Both? Other brief glimpses of Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Gary Oldman, Michael Caine and Matthew Modine are exactly that — brief glimpses.”

Anne Hathaway to Play Catwoman in Batman Film

Actress Anne Hathaway will star as Catwoman in the next Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises. The movie is set for a July 2012 release. If you don’t want to wait, follow Michelle Phan’s video tips (embedded above) for wearing Catwoman’s signature style.

Christian Bale will reprise his role as Batman, following his blockbuster success with The Dark Knight. Director Christopher Nolan will helm the project once again.

Here’s more from Deadline New York: “Hathaway [will] play Selina Kyle, who has a double identity as Catwoman. Nolan has also acknowledged that his Inception star Tom Hardy will play the villain role of Bane, an escaped prisoner who became abnormally strong after being pumped full of drugs. Bane is known as ‘the man who broke the Bat’ after he broke Batman’s spinal cord in the comics storyline.” (Via Jason Pinter)
