Official The Dark Knight Rises Trailer

The official teaser trailer for The Dark Knight Rises has been released – showing a bed-ridden Commissioner Gordon (Gary Oldman) insisting that Batman must return. We also get an early look at Tom Hardy as super-villain Bane, but other than that, there’s not much else, yet.

The Dark Knight Rises, the next installment in the Christopher Nolan rebooted Batman trilogy, stars Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Joseph-Gordon Levitt, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Oldman.

The film is expected to hit theaters July 20, 2012.
