One of the treasures awaiting those who bothered to unravel the clues included in the Dark Knight Rises viral campaign, which kicked of yesterday at Thedarkknightrises.com, was a new - third - trailer for the film, sending fans into an online frenzy.
Here is a list of things the new, full trailer tells us (fyi, if you don't like spoilers LOOK AWAY NOW):
1) Selina Kyle/Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt's character know each other;
2) We still don't know who the hell J G-L's character is;
3) Tom Hardy's Bane can speak properly after all;
4) Some bridges are going to collapse in spectacular fashion, with just the kind of amazing FX we hoped for from Christopher Nolan;
5) The Batmobile can finally fly.
And if you missed the viral campaign madness yesterday, here's what happened...
A series of posters appeaered at the website Thedarkknightrises.com, according to which Bruce Wayne is wanted for six counts of first degree murder, including the slaying of a pair of police officers and former District Attorney, Harvey Dent. The bundle then features a Gotham Police Department memo, which also indicates that the c aped crusader must be apprehended before "Harvey Dent Day".
Also included within the new online bundle is an invitation to a scavenger hunt which includes a string of global locations listed at which pictures should be taken and sent to the film's Twitter account. A number of UK locations are listed in the locations.
The final page of the online bundle features a bag of photo film, with pictures already sent it by fans who have visited the locations listed and sent it their photos.
