Just when we thought no more trailers would be released for director Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, a fourth trailer debuted last month, surprising everyone. Now, we’re a mere 10 days away from the film’s release, so there’s no way that yet another one could surface, right?
Wrong. A fifth trailer, called “Journey,” has now made its way online, via Xfinity. The trailer opens with scenes from Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, summarizing what we’ve seen so far with Bruce Wayne’s journey in the films. Then, it kicks into high gear with clips from the final film, including some new scenes featuring the war on Gotham. Thankfully, this doesn’t show us too much, or reveal anything spoiler-ish, so hit the jump if you’re thirsty for more of The Dark Knight Rises!
