New Trailers: The Dark Knight Rises, The Hobbit

In addition to the much anticipated The Dark Knight Rises, The Hobbit teaser trailer has made a nice, expected visit to theaters now, placed in front of The Adventures of Tin Tin, which Peter Jackson is producer of. Scroll to the bottom to view the trailer and more information regarding it.

It’s finally getting around that the first full trailer for The Dark Knight Rises is out there and ready to be speculated about. Positioning the trailer well in front of both Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows and MI4: Ghost Protocol in IMAX, Christopher Nolan takes a few minutes to talk about his upcoming movie, The Dark Knight Rises, in this article posted on The Reelist.

According to Nolan, the trailer is all that he has finished editing: “I’ve barely started to edit the rest of the film,” he admits.

Interviewers are still pressing him for information on whether or not this is really the end of his time with the batman franchise. Perhaps since he has revealed multiple times that this is his last Batman film, as well as distinctly given it away on the trailer that The Dark Knight Rises is the “final” film in his batman “trilogy,” The Reelist was still pressing for whether or not he would consider producing a batman film in the future. Nolan gladly answers that it’s all going to be circumstantial for any possible involvement with the franchise in the future as well as concludes he isn’t planning on writing or directing anymore batman films after this one: “I think the important thing really for me is as a director and as a writer and so forth, this is the conclusion of my involvement with it.”

With all of the very early hype for a film that isn’t due out for another good 7 months, I still wonder if Nolan’s going to be able to deliver the colossal film that everyone is not only hoping for anymore, but also expecting it to be. He describes his writing process and the point of when he knew things were starting to fit together for the film: “I think really once we figured out our ending, then it felt like okay, we know where this story is going and where we have to land the plane if you like. That’s always very important in any project, with all my projects. I really try to figure out the end first and work up from there.”

What do you guys think of it? I was wondering what the disintegration of the football field was all about. Aside from that, Tom Hardy looks villainous enough, and Anne Hathaway might possibly pull off not being awkward in a movie. Possibly. It’s nice to see some of the Inception cast return in another CNolan film, like Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotillard. And Gary Oldman reprising his role as Commissioner Gordon looks great, of course, too. Did everybody else notice that Christian Bale isn’t in the trailer much?

When I heard the term “teaser trailer,” I was not expecting a two and half minute trailer. I’m delightfully surprised to get to see so much, from Bilbo (young and old version), a hint of Frodo, a lot of Gandalf, some Galadriel, and of course at the end, Gollum and the ring. The only other big character I haven’t seen is Legolas. Perhaps in the “full” trailer, we’ll get a hint of him, similar to that tiny scene of Joseph Gordon-Levitt in The Dark Knight Rises trailer. This is an exciting and fun-looking trailer that also includes some new faces. Even a full year before its theatrical release, we’re getting quite a bit of footage. Check out the trailer below!

It has Peter Jackson’s hands all over it. I’m happy to see this prequel being done by the same director as the series. It definitely gives it a mode of continuation with the series. There’s really no doubt that this movie is going to be successful, especially to those who are already big LOTR fans. I think the biggest question is really, how will it compare to the LOTR? Will we like the story as much, or will too high expectations disappoint in the end? Martin Freeman, who plays Bilbow, looks promising, and actually very similar to old Bilbo, played by Ian Holm. I’m still betting on Howard Shore to do the soundtrack for this film. I guess we’ll have a full year to wait.

  1. I am pumped up to see both of those films. I think perhaps The Hobbit a bit more than the Dark Knight Rises but it is close. Missed that extended Dark Knight trailer when my brother was late when we saw MI4.

    • It’s interesting – I’ve actually been hearing from multiple people that they’re more excited to see The Hobbit than The Dark Knight Rises. It’s really difficult for me to choose, but with Lord of the Rings being so epic, The Hobbit almost seems a little more exciting to me since it’s been such a long time since LOTR came out. Thanks for reading!
