It’s here! The one you’ve all been waiting for! The trailer for the Dark Knight Rises!

The trailer is now playing before Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 and rumours about its content were posted a few nights ago, now Warner Bros. have released the official versionvia Facebook.

Earlier this year, the world went mad for the viral marketing campaign which through a series of clever puzzles eventually gave us our first look at this first image of Tom Hardy as the movie villain, Bane.

Then came the teaser poster which set light to the touchpaper under excitable Batfans and this trailer is perhaps one of the most anticipated first looks of the summer. Only another year to wait then…

The Dark Knight Rises is set for release in 20th July, 2012 and stars Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Josh Pence, and Marion Cotillard.
