Eh, pretty standard action trailer. But then again this franchise has never had very good trailers, so I am hopeful.

And cool to hear the chant that I contributed to. I expect to receive a screen credit. ;)

Call me crazy, but it sounds like this is all original music--whether for the trailer specifically, or selections from the score. Sounds like a pretty decent development of the previous material. We'll see how this goes.

Why in the world the trailers has to look(and sound) all the same?????

The trailers are so standard form that most of them are just annoying...

They've all been incepted. The fad will pass just like Lux Aeterna did.
"Close Encounters to me is as good a piece of concert music as the 20th century has produced. Everybody fixates on... the Superman fanfare, or Star Wars - Main Theme, or the Raiders March. It's what happens after that, it's not the big popular hook where you go: 'My God John Williams is a genius.' Y'know it's the stuff which is maybe less hooky and less hummable, but is great art." - Hans Zimmer

Wow, looks awesome.

I'm genuinely curious why Bane apparently cripples Batman but lets him live. Also, is Joseph Gordon Levitt playing some kind of Nolan version of Robin? Bummer no sexy shots of Hathaway in full Catwoman gear. I can understand what Bane is saying this time. New vehicles look cool. I'm excited!

It's neat seeing Hines Ward scamper across the football field as it collapses behind him amid the explosions. I can see at least three other places where I know that I'm seeing Pittsburgh: JGL on the bridge beside the school bus, any scenes on the marble steps in front of one of CMU's buildings, and when the "not a car" takes off at the very end of the trailer, the letters "UPMC" are seen plain as day on the top side of the triangular USX tower that it flies over. I'm very puzzled why they kept those intact.

At Jay's genuine curiosity:

Excellent trailer. I was hoping the third trailer would focus a bit more on Hathaway's Catwoman, but all her new scenes and dialogue are fantastic. I know some people didn't like it, but I loved that last scene between Batman and Catwoman in the Bat:

"My mother warned about getting into cars with strange men."
"This isn't a car."

At this point, there'd be no point. Two movies have been ruined by his voice, why "save" the third?

He sounds more toned-down altogether in TDKR. His Bat-voice was much too growly in TDK.

I never watched the prologue, but I haven't had any trouble understanding Bane in any of the trailers. As to the Batvoice, I seem to recall reading that they did some digital effects on Bale's voice for TDK. I recall his voice in Begins being a bit more under control. I absolutely freakin' love "Do I look like a cop?"

Bale's Bat voice seems more back to the BB days, than the overly growly, I-need-a-throat-lozenge TDK voice.

Bale doesn't have a good voice for Batman to begin with. Compare to Keaton, the classic animated series dude and even Adam West in the context of that universe. Just awesome. Even if he wasn't doing that lisping strep throat thing, I don't think he could find a way to generate a good Bat voice.

Keaton, Kilmer, and Clooney didn't even try to make their Batman voices different than Bruce Wayne's, which is worse than even trying too hard. Kevin Conroy (the voice actor you mentioned) nailed the dual tones of the character to a T.

I've never had any nor understood the issues many have with Bale's Batman voice.I wonder it that has anything to do with the fact English is not my native language. I find his voice either natural or as Batman absolutely fine.

That's too bad... Maybe you can persuade your cousin not to marry then? You'll save him/her a lot of grief in life and you'll get a chance to be there. It's a win-win situation.

So far her (future) marriage has brought me a lot of grief (for my eventual absence in Kraków), therefore I hope it's going to be a happy marriage then. Otherwise I'll be very annoyed. :P

My two cents on the trailer. I personally loved it, and it really has me excited for the film. My only issue is that final shot/sequence with the yet again improved batmobile (or whatever it is). The way the punch line was delivered and way the whole thing played, it seemed much more like something that you'd find in the Marvel universe instead of Nolan's films. But other than that, it was epic!

Also, while I at first did not like the Bat voice, I think people are really blowing the issue out of proportions. It's perfectly fine and pretty realistic too. When you have a movie with big expectations, people will complain about anything.

Like the trailer.

I'm watching Batman Begins at the moment. Does anyone else think these two movies are a bit geographically and aesthetically inconsistent? In the first film, we've got that slum island section of Gotham and that CGI railway system, but that's all gone in the second film. Looks like there's still a bit of a fantasy element in BB, but TDK eliminates those with no evidence of their existence.

You're totally right, but that really doesn't bother me at all. Actually, I have never been fond of BB and keep forgeting it's the same universe that is in TDK.

Yep, I noticed that too... interestingly not really the first time I watched Dark Knight. I do miss the more fantastic version of Gotham, though; it shouldn't be like every other American City IMO

That's not exactly the case. The monorail actually is in TDK in a few wide shots of Gotham, but it's more of a cameo. The Narrows isn't there because it was all but destroyed in Begins. The mainland of Gotham, which in both films is essentially Chicago, is the same between the films, even though there are some stylistic differences with the cinematography and other things. I don't think it's accurate at all to say that there are no sci-fi or fantasy elements in TDK when we're talking about a film with a guy in a bat-suit, Two-Face, and a giant sonar machine.
Do you like John Williams? His early work was a little too jazzy for my taste, but when Jaws came out in '75 I really think he came into his own, commercially and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and an air of consummate professionalism that really gives the pieces a big boost. He's been compared to Jerry Goldsmith but I think John has a far more leitmotif-driven style of composing. In '82 John composed this, E.T., his most accomplished album to date. I think his undisputed masterpiece is "The Magic of Halloween", a theme so catchy most people don't listen to what it means. But they should, because it's not just about the pleasures of childhood and the importance of friendship, it's also a personal statement about the man himself. Hey Paul!

Each one has its own conscious deviations from reality, in the form of gadgets etc. TDKR is going to have a cool one, by the way ;) The setting is the same with different colour palettes (orange, blue, white).
