Watch 13 Minutes Of The Dark Knight Rises Before It Hits Cinemas

Batman has been off Gotham's streets for eight years, and now Bruce Wayne must decide whether or not he returns to fight off this new threat. Rise and shine, time to get a sneak peek at The Dark Knight Rises.

In the featurette, you'll see Tom Hardy giggle about his experiences as the masked villain Bane and tell people exactly why Bane is a better villain than the Joker. "Some people want to watch the world burn? Bane is here to pull the pin on that grenade," he says confidently

We're shown what Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotillard do in the film, and we're given an insight into how Michael Caine approaches the role of Batman's invisible sidekick, Alfred.

There aren't a huge amount of spoilers in this trailer; we're mostly shown concept art, screenshots, buildings exploding, trailer clips and set piece tours, so you won't ruin anything for yourself.

The crew explains that writer/director Christopher Nolan makes the world as real as possible while shooting. The crowd scenes aren't enhanced by special effects like they were in Lord Of The Rings, for example. The part where Bane's henchmen hang from an aircraft was all real, and the amazing football field scene actually sees a playing field fall apart like it's being attacked by a terrorist.

Waste some time on your Monday morning with these awesome 13 minutes of Batman. [io9]

    Way to keen for this!

    I have been so bombarded with ads and trailers for this movie, I no longer have any interest in seeing it whatsoever.
    Will there be any new idea in movies coming up any time soon?
    Sick to death of all these constant re-makes in various guises, not to mention all the trailers and not so-sneaky previews.

    Do you mean "Watch 13 minutes of THE MAKING OF The Dark Knight Rises Before it hits cinemas". By the way that is no where near as cool. I guess thats why you have used a misleading title.

    I like a lot of movies, but there are very few which I stand back from and go..."wow!" Christopher Nolan is responsible for pretty much all of them: Memento, The Prestige, Inception and The Dark Knight (Batman Begins was good as well but it had nothing on the Dark Knight.) Typically i think that movie sequels never live up to original and that the best movies are stand-alone. What Chris has done with the Batman franchise however is truly remarkable and if there is anyone who can make a trilogy where each subsequent movie is better than the last, it is without a doubt Christopher Nolan. (Yeah I'm pumped!)

    Or not, prefer to watch the real thing I thinks.
