New “Knight Rises,” “Titans” Trailers Hit

We had a fairly obtuse teaser back in July, now the proper and revealing second trailer for “The Dark Knight Rises” has gone online in high def after several days of screening with copies of “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” over the weekend.

The new trailer gives us plenty of looks at Tom Hardy’s Bane character, a great line from Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman (sans costume), and brief glimpses of Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Matthew Modine’s characters. There’s also a big money shot involving a devastating explosion.

A third trailer is expected to be released in the first half of next year, the earliest would be with “Wrath of the Titans” in late March, but more likely it’ll be out early May when both “The Avengers” and the Warners-released “Dark Shadows” hit cinemas.

Also out today is the first trailer for “Wrath of the Titans”, the sequel to the “Clash of the Titans” remake from 2009. It would appear they’ve ditched all pretension about trying to follow Greek mythology – this really is “God of War” the movie.

There’s lots of CG giant monster on monster action and 80’s porn star hair – the not taking itself too seriously actually makes it look more palatable than the highly disappointing first ‘Titans’.
