LOS ANGELES, May 2 — The third trailer for Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises was released May 1, featuring new footage, ominous lines of dialogue and chilling imagery.

The film costars Gary Oldman (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) as Commissioner Gordon, Michael Caine as Alfred and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotillard (Inception), and Anne Hathaway as Catwoman.
Bridges explode, Wayne is tortured, Alfred refuses to bury him, Catwoman warns of a “storm coming,” the masked Bane sounds like Darth Vader, and the Batmobile hovers and flies as Batman vows to finish his job.
