Well, this is unexpected. When the third trailer for The Dark Knight Rises hit the web last month, most assumed that it would be the last full trailer before the film’s debut next month. As it turns out, Nokia has debuted an exclusive trailer online today, which, of course, contains new footage that will most likely blow away fans of the franchise. Not sure if I would say it is a better trailer than the third, but I’ll leave that up to the reader to decide. Let’s not discuss this any further, and just watch, shall we?
