UPDATE (July 11, 2011): The teaser trailer for The Dark Knight Rises is real and has a running time of 1 minute and 26 seconds! The trailer was recently reviewed and classified by the Government of Alberta, which classifies all trailers that play in Alberta’s movie theaters. They have a list of recently classified trailers that details the date a trailer received its classification, which classification it has earned, and the running time of the trailer. Well today Trailer #1 for The Dark Knight Rises popped up on said list with a PG classification and a 1:26 running time. That running time likely doesn’t include the green band in front of the trailer. A photo released by a member (film4life) on SSH also confirms that the trailer will be attached to 2D and 3D showings of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2. No word on when it will officially be online.
Rumors and speculation have long placed the teaser trailer for The Dark Knight Rises in front of showings of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, but now SuperHeroHype is turning that rumor into a trumor. According to the exclusive report by the popular superhero news site, a “trustworthy source” has informed them that a 1 minute and 33 second teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises will play with both 2D and IMAX 3D prints of the final Harry Potter film when it is released next week. We’ve tried to get this confirmed through some of our own sources, with no luck, but that doesn’t give us any real reason to distrust this report. SuperHeroHype is also claiming a teaser poster for the final Nolan directed Batman film is planned to hit theaters next week. Are you excited? Is a 1:33 running time for the teaser too little or too much? Do you even believe this rumor? Comment below!
