The first official trailer for The Dark Knight Rises, the conclusion to the Batman movie trilogy by filmmaker Christopher Nolan, is here. As some of you may have seen in the previews during the final Harry Potter flick over the weekend, the Dark Knight trailer features Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon pleading for the return of the Batman -- a role reprised by Christian "SWEAR TO ME!" Bale -- with a quick glimpse of Tom Hardy as the back-breaking Bane before the camera rises dramatically upwards through the rubble of a crumbling city where the only sky (and light) appears in the shape of a bat.

The Dark Knight Rises is currently scheduled to premiere in theaters July 2012. See the full trailer below.
