The trailer for Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated film The Dark Knight Rises is making rounds online. It doesn’t strike the same chord with me like The Dark Knight, and I still hate the title, but enough of my pessimism.

The premise takes place 8 years after the events in the second movie. And it looks like it’s using ideas from the graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns with an older Batman and using Bane as the leader of the group that terrorizes Gotham City.

And, of course, ideas from Knightfall will make their way into the film. Afterall Bane is in it — and there’s the hint of a cane — if you catch my drift.

The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters July 20, 2012.
