Warner Bros. Debuts Epic "Dark Knight Rises" Trailer

Warner Bros. has premiered the ominous third trailer for director Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises," heralded as "the epic conclusion to the Dark Knight legend." It receives its theatrical debut Friday with Marvel's "The Avengers."

The trailer is indeed epic, filled with warnings of a coming storm, large-scale destruction, an "adaptable" Selina Kyle and, perhaps most surprising of all, an intelligible Bane ("I'm Gotham's reckoning," Tom Hardy says, clear as day, through his character's mask).

Opening July 20, "The Dark Knight Rises" also stars Christian Bale as Batman, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle, Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tale, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake, Michael Caine as Alfred, Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox.

And, for those who can't watch the video right now or want to slow down and focus on the details a little further, check out our extensive gallery of screenshots from the trailer!
