The Dark Knight Rises: New Still Images and Set Photos, Plus 2 TV Spots Containing New Footage
05.24.12 by BJSprecher
Now that Avengers fever has subsided somewhat — Marvel Studios' super-team movie dropped 50% in sales its second week in theaters and an additional 46% the third week, but "Earth's Mightiest Heroes" still managed to sink the competition at the box office this past weekend — Warner Bros. is being a little more aggressive in its marketing of its own summer superhero spectacle, The Dark Knight Rises.
Warner Bros. aired a short promo for The Dark Knight Rises during the NBA playoffs last week and released several new posters earlier this week. Now, Warner Bros. has released a batch of new new still images from the movie featuring Batman (Christian Bale), Bane (Tom Hardy) and Catwoman (Anne Hathaway), as well as a pair of photos showing director Christopher Nolan working his magic on the set. Additionally, the first two TV spots for The Dark Knight Rises began airing last night and they can now be viewed online. Both spots are action-packed and contain tantalizing snippets of never-before-seen footage from the movie, with the second spot even including a bit of humor.
