Up until now, the tone of The Dark Knight Rises' promotional campaign has been serious and gritty. There's been little to crack a smile at in the movie's first three trailers and TV spots (here and here) besides the playful Batman-Catwoman exchange in the third trailer — "My mother warned me about getting into cars with strange men." "This isn't a car."
In its fourth TV spot, the movie showcases some lighthearted banter between Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) and Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman). The new 30-second spot starts with Wayne and Fox seemingly finishing up a conversation. "These conversations used to end with an unusual request," says Fox, referring to his role in Batman Begins and The Dark Knight as the Caped Crusader's go-to gadget guru. "I retired," Wayne replies. "Let me show you some new stuff anyways." watch the new spot >> Posted 05.29.12 by Chris
