Christopher Nolan promised theater owners in Las Vegas on Tuesday that The Dark Knight Rises will provide a "thrilling conclusion" to his Batman trilogy and showed a selection of scenes from the tentpole never previously seen.
The footage included numerous exchanges between Batman, played by Christian Bale, and Catwoman, played by Anne Hathaway, with one shot suggesting they are allies. And -- perhaps ending the intrigue over the clarity of Bane's voice in the movie's opening scene -- Bane's voice was much more clear in a new snippet shown Tuesday.
Dark Knight Rises was part of Warner Bros. and New Line's star-studded presentation at CinemaCon, which runs throughout the week at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
Dark Knight Rises opens July 20 and is already being tagged as one of the biggest grossers of 2012.
"We wanted to finish this in the biggest way possible," said Nolan as he took the stage at The Colosseum at Caesars after being introduced by Warner Bros. Motion Pictures Group president Jeff Robinov, who said Nolan is known on the lot as "The Governor."
