“Dark Knight Rises” teaser trailer comes, goes, causes fan uproar


By G. Clay Whittaker
Hollywoodnews.com: The bat-s%#@ hit the fan when a pirated teaser for “The Dark Knight Rises” hit the web recently, hand-recorded from an early screening of the last Harry Potter film.

Don’t bother searching: it’s already gone. A few hours of trolling the seediest of pirate urls still turned up nothing. The Nolan/WB Gestapo locked this one up faster than Alfred driving the Rolls through a bad part of Gotham.

What the British paper The Guardian shared about the trailer is that it features a clip of Liam Neeson dialogue from “Batman Begins,” a hospitalized Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman) pleading for help, and the Dark Knight himself squaring off with Bane (Tom Hardy). That leaves a whole lot of room for speculation for the blogosphere, and the theories continue to grow.

But “Dark Knight Rises” isn’t the only comic-book movie looking for attention this summer. An “Amazing Spider-Man” trailer is due out next week, as well, marking the series reboot for another major franchise. So why all the energy around Bats and his final flick?

Part of it is Christopher Nolan’s death-grip approach to publicity about the film. He’s created a supply-demand feedback loop that looks an awful lot like a Hadron Collider. That’s great for hype, but probably causing the micromanaging visionary some ulcers.

The one consolation for all the fanboys is that Christopher Nolan is just as frustrated when something gets out as they are with the wait. But energy for the project is high, and Nolan’s track record likely means all the hype is well-deserved.

    There’s no uproar. What does that even mean?
