Guys, I actually think this is a very important trailer, because Chris Nolan has chosen this story for a reason. I read one guy post this at imdb, and
I think he is spot on.
"I will spill out some thoughts on a few symbolic signs for which I'm pretty sure the trailer contains.
At the start of the trailer, you can hear Alfred saing that it was basically his mandate from Waynes's parents to protect him and that he failed at
doing that. When he is saying it, we see a silver cover on the dinner plate, which I is a symbol of him being a butler and a protector at the same
The second thing that I would like to note is that I think this film is going to be incredibly harmonius with the bleak times in which we live in,
especially Americans. At the very start we hear a young boy singing the anthem in a gloomy tone without any drums and other usual 'decorations'.
Then we hear Anne Hathaway whispering to Wayne something like "you thought you could live so large and so peacefully and leave so little for the rest
of us". From an average American's view on social life, I can hardly imagine a clearer way of spitting out discontent than this. This is exactly how
elites act and think. The we see the uprising, not from Batman, but from a group of prisoners. Then the footbal field...
There is one message from the imploding football field... THE GAME IS OVER. The football field can be understood as an allegory for the (crumbled)
marketplace. Rivals are competing with each other and then the very field on which they play, implodes. Isn't that exactly what happened? Except that
in actual life, the marketplace imploded because of their own (corporate) weight, in the film the rebels ruin the field, basically saying not only
that they don't want to be a part of the game, but ending the game itself.
This trailer is masterfully done and the film hopefully even more. In a good film there is a lot more than meets they eye, a lot more. You have to see
things multiple times to actually 'see' (understand) anything. "
