If you thought the Dark Knight Rises teaser poster was mind-blowing, you ain't seen (or heard) nothing yet! Because we've got a full description of the first teaser trailer that will be attached to Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows—Part 2.

Trailer spoilers below ...

Prints of the Dark Knight Rises teaser have been sent to theaters all over the country in preparation for Friday's big release. While giving the footage a once-over, one of the projectionists decided to take some detailed notes and release them to the public.

If you don't want to be spoiled for the Dark Knight Rises trailer, STOP now, but if it's not a problem, keep going and enjoy!

-Trailer opens with studio logos set on top of the blue flame from Dark Knight.

Start panning up some buildings, but cut to the screen card: EVERY HERO HAS A JOURNEY.

Cuts to a shot from Begins with Bruce walking up to that Village when he's looking for Ra's


Ra's (Liam Neeson) voice over: "If you make yourself more then just a man. If you devout yourself to be ideal. And you become something else entirely. A legend Mr. Wayne....A LEGEND!"


Cut to Gordon in a hospital bed laying on his side. Looks to be in serious pain. Has A breathing mask on. He is talking to someone.

Gordon: "We were in this together, then you were gone.......Now this Evil rises. The Batman.....HAS to come back." (all this is said in a very raspy voice, in much pain)
Bruce/Batman(its not shown who he's talking to, so don't know in which form Bruce is visiting him in. My guess would be as Bruce Wayne) : "What if he doesn't exist anymore?"

This part is the hardest to understand in the entire trailer, I listened to it at least 10 times but the score is over powering here and Gordon is having trouble talking. It sounds as if he says, "Humor me," while trying to laugh. I might be wrong here, full disclosure.

During this quick talk we're shown a shot of the bat cycle when it drives up the ramp from Dark Knight, Gordon destroying the Act Signal all cut in with the Hospital. As well as super fast flashes of Bane's face.

Pan up crumbing buildings to reveal the Teaser Poster, the camera zooms to the white opening and on an all white screen the title appears. The score reaches a fever pitch before turning over to The chanting from the website.


Fades to black and then we see Batman backing away from something, then Bane enters from the left side of the screen. Very quick shot then the trailers done.

If that's not epic enough, here's a screen cap from the trailer.

What do you think?

The Dark Knight Rises opens in theaters everywhere July 20, 2012.
