Third trailer for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

"You don't owe these people anymore. You've given them everything."

"Not everything. Not yet."

For the first time, I am beginning to warm up to the "eight years later..." aspect of The Dark Knight Rises. Mainly 'cuz it looks like Christopher Nolan really is giving us something we've never seen cinematically before: a Batman facing his own doubts and mortality. That Nolan is apparently drawing from three of the greatest Batman storylines ever - The Dark Knight Returns, Knightfall and No Man's Land - is convincing me even more that I can accept this being the closing chapter of a trilogy, instead of that ongoing Batman film franchise that I had hoped Batman Begins would have been the start of.

'Course it goes without saying that this trailer is gorgeous, in a hauntingly subtle way that I can't remember seeing from a trailer for a comic book movie.

You can also watch it in glorious high-def Quicktime in 720P or 1080P.
