‘The Dark Knight Rises’ trailer released: Batten down the hatches (video)

(Warner Bros.)

“There’s a storm coming, Mr. Wayne,” Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway out of her controversial Catwoman ensemble) promises our Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale). “You and your friends better batten down the hatches. Because when it hits, you’re all going to wonder how you ever thought you could live so large and leave so little for the rest of us.”

Then something really unpleasant happens at Heinz Field (although the Steelers still manage to score a touchdown anyway — maybe Tim Tebow plays for them in “The Dark Knight Rises” version of reality?), Bane says something unintelligible, Christian Bale looks hot and the title cards promise an “epic conclusion” to the “Dark Knight” franchise.
