The trailers for Batman Begins and The Dark Knight Rises have been re-released in clear, glossy 4K by Warner Bros. The critically acclaimed films, which were released in 2005 and 2012, are the first and last parts in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy. Fans were also exposed to Christian Bale’s depiction of the caped crusader in the series.
Batman Begins is the sequel to 1997’s Batman & Robin, which was panned for its cartoonishly styled finale to Warner Bros.’ four-part Batman film series. In contrast to the previous four films, which included a variety of directing styles and performers, Nolan’s trilogy would establish a coherent, tonally consistent vision of the series. The film Batman Begins recounts the tale of a teenage Bruce Wayne who, after the loss of his parents, goes overseas to train for seven years before returning to Gotham and completing his transformation into Batman. The Dark Knight Rises follows The Dark Knight, the second chapter of the trilogy, and brings a hardened Bruce Wayne out of an eight-year exile.
Warner Bros. has redone the trailers for both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight Rises, and has posted the sleek 4K versions on YouTube. The glacial training sites from Batman Begins sparkle in high definition in the new trailers, while the mid-air combat scenes from The Dark Knight Rises are more sharp than ever. When seen side by side, the two trailers reveal visual parallels that Nolan, who is known for his careful attention to detail, no doubt had in mind when shooting the trilogy. Each film, for example, displays identical high-contrast views from the bottom of dry wells, emphasizing the well structure’s thematic importance throughout the trilogy. Take a look at the following trailers:
The new videos are released on Batman Day, which commemorates Batman’s debut appearance in Detective Comics in 1939. The new trailers seem to be tied to Batman Day, since 4K versions of the Dark Knight trilogy were published in 2017. Warner Bros. has failed to produce a 4K version of The Dark Knight trailer, the franchise’s second and most acclaimed film and the only one chosen for preservation by the Library of Congress.
The re-release of the Batman Begins and The Dark Knight Rises trailers by Warner Bros. may just be to generate hype for the upcoming The Batman. Matt Reeves’ film will relaunch the Batman series with fresh talent, most notably Robert Pattinson as the next Bruce Wayne, and will be released in March 2022. The Riddler will be played by Paul Dano, while Catwoman will be played by Zoe Kravitz. Last August, a 4K trailer for The Batman was published, and another is set to be released in October. It’s conceivable that Warner Bros. is implying that The Batman will be on par with the famous Dark Knight trilogy with the re-release of the original Nolan trailers.
