Watch a new 13-minute preview of The Dark Knight Rises

The extended featurette includes new interviews with Christian Bale, Tom Hardy and Christopher Nolan, as well as clips from the film

If you’re a Batman fan and have a spare 13-and-a-half minutes on your hands, you could do far worse than spend them watching this extended preview of The Dark Knight Rises.


Featuring a barrage of new information about the film, the lengthy clip includes all-new interviews with Batman himself, Christian Bale, and co-stars Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

As well as words from director Christopher Nolan and other crew members, the featurette also boasts new clips from the movie and showcases some breathtaking stunt work too:

The concluding part of Nolan’s Batman trilogy opens with the Dark Knight labelled persona non grata in Gotham City after taking the rap for villain Two Face’s crimes at the end of the last film. But in spite of his blackened reputation, Batman comes out of hiding to protect his beloved city from the threat of Hardy’s terrifying new terrorist leader Bane.


Bat-fans haven’t much longer to wait for The Dark Knight Rises, which will be released in cinemas on Friday 20 July.
