    ‘Dark Knight Rises’ Trailer Released

    Warner Brothers

The official trailer was released Monday, showing the villain Bane, played by Tom Hardy, unleashing hell with an “earthquake machine” at a football game.

But with dialogue like that, Nolan clearly wanted to evoke the clash between the 1 percent and the 99 percent.
