3rd trailer for The Dark Knight Rises will be showing during The Avengers theatrical release on May 4:
A new trailer for Warner Bros. and Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises will be released in less than two weeks time.
The Dark Knight Rises trailer, the third for those keeping count, will be attached to Marvel and Disney’s The Avengers beginning May 4. Nolanfans got the trailer confirmation from WB Exhibitor website which clearly shows the trailer’s existence and debut date. It also confirms The Dark Knight Rises trailer will appear in 2D and 3D traditional and IMAX screenings.
You might be wondering why Warner Bros. and DC Comics would attach their big summer tentpole on the competition’s film. It’s all about playing to the target audience and The Avengers is a perfect fit, especially considering its near record-breaking opening weekend tracking. As Nolanfans points out, the third trailer for The Dark Knight made its debut attached to Iron Man in 2008. Similarly, Inception’s last trailer was first spotted in front of Iron Man 2.
If any of you needed a little extra push to go watch The Avengers theatrically next month, The Dark Knight Rises trailer should do the trick. Batman’s final fight under the direction of Christopher Nolan will take its own shot at box office records beginning July 20.
The Dark Knight Rises stars Christian Bale, Morgan Freeman, Anne Hathaway, Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Caine and Marion Cotillard.
