News: More The Dark Knight Rises Runtime, Viral Marketing, New Synopsis, And That MTV Trailer

So, the BBFC has confirmed that The Dark Knight Rises clocks in with a runtime of two hours and forty five minutes. That’s more than enough to numb the shapeliest of bums, but is it enough time to reach the ridiculous heights of our massively inflated expectations? We’ll see in seventeen days. In the meantime, let’s keep the hype-machine ticking over my covering everything released of the last few days.

First up is the performance review of GCPD Officer John Blake (Joseph Gordon-Levitt). It doesn’t reveal a lot, only that Blake is one of the good guys and his high standards leads to friction with some of his fellow officers. He feels exactly the kind of ally Batman (Christian Bale) needs to help in the battle against Bane (Tom Hardy)

Here’s an email about Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) and her cat burglaries. It hints at the friction between the richer and poorer citizens of Gotham City, which we know plays a big part in Bane’s plan.

As well as these interesting pieces of viral marketing, a new synopsis was provided for the film –

“It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act.

But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.”

Ooh, it seems to confirm my theory of an injured Bruce Wayne after the events of The Dark Knight might have just been confirmed. Yeah, I rock. Don’t all tell me at once.

And finally, a month ago the MTV Movie Awards had an exclusive trailer for the film. Everywhere that put the teaser reel up was hit with a takedown notice from Warner Bros. and MTV. Anyway, now the footage has been officially release for us all to see and be thrilled by. Check it out –

Pretty frickin’ awesome, huh? Let us know what you think of everything down below.

EDIT – It’s STILL be pulled. Sigh. If you want to see it, it’s here. Ridiculous.

The Dark Knight Rises, the final part of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, hits screens the world over from the 20th July.
