Was I watching a trailer for Inception 2 or the next Batman film?
I had the same feeling, Caine is already in it, using three of the other main actors in it is a bit overkill IMO

I don't know what's overkill about it, especially if he thinks they're the best actors for the roles.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Is this the final trailer? Perhaps Nolan thinks, with such an established fan base from the 2nd movie, he doesn't need to blow our socks off with a trailer, play it down and save all the good stuff for the movie itself. I trust the finished product will be great but this is a disappointing trailer.

^I'm finding the mixed responses to this trailer fascinating. This is the first thing I've seen of the movie that has actually gotten me excited. Everything before this has left me feeling very "meh."

I feel the same way and I'm not sure why. I still don't have the same anticipation for this as I did for Avengers and as I do for Prometheus and Spider-Man. This trailer did help get me more excited though!
Same here, but then I never found ANY of the trailers for Nolan's Batman movies to be terribly exciting. Visually his take on the character and his world just does nothing for me.

It's really only his incredibly strong direction and storytelling that makes the movies work as well as they do. At least for me.

I've not found Nolan's Batman to be thrilling. Engaging yes but exciting and thrilling, not necessarily.
For instance I own TDK but don't rewatch it like I do Iron Man, Thor or to go elsewhere Rambo 4 or Expendables. I'm not sure I rewatched TDK at all in 2011 now that I think about it.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I love this third trailer. How it opened with a foreboding calm before slowly building into a storm. The trailer also increases my curiosity about Joseph Gordon Levitt's cop character and the role he plays in the story.

Holy... That was awesome.

Poor AVENGERS, they will be completely forgotten once this one hits theaters...

Now the question is, which film will be the event movie of the year?
- Nolan's Batman finale
- or Scott's Alien prequel
Cannot wait.

By the time July hits, Avengers will probably be 4th or 5th down on the box office.

So the hype will have died down by then.

The trailer looks good, I just can't figure what the heck the movie is about.

Maybe, maybe not. While the trailer is impressive, and I'm definitely going to see the film. Nolan's Batman films have never hit me in a way that Marvel's superhero films have. Nor does this trailer give me the same feelings that The Avengers trailers do.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Great trailer but they should've cut the end scene with Batman saying, "This isn't a car" as it's too cutesy for everything that's come before it.

Me too - the focus on him in the trailer is surprising...

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

What has me stoked about this film? The fact the previous two were GOOD. Even if I didn't see any trailers I'd still be eager to see this because I so enjoyed the previous films.

The trailer serves its purpose: to offer an intriguing glimpse of what's coming without really giving anything away. Works for me, but as I said I've already been interested since the last movie.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Increasing I have thought that trailers give too much away. Almost that they are an actual project. With the films tailored to what can be in the trailers. Closest comparison I can think of is a short film or music video. But that is not the point. Its supposed to be an ad for the actual work.

This does what a trailer is meant to do. The problem with the other approach is it often backfires. A few isolated great moments that spoil the film. Or misleading because a few great moments doesn't mean an overall strong narrative
